Campaign themes


Linthicum listed the following issues on his campaign website:[4]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Parents and communities are the best advocates for children and education. Centrally planned and mandated curriculums cannot account for the learning styles, unique capabilities and diverse backgrounds of children across America."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "Competition in the marketplace creates the wide variety of energy that we enjoy. Unfortunately, modern energy subsidies distort this market and rob businesses and families of affordable energy."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "The environmentalist movement has recently been motivated by a faulty paradigm – that humans is the earth’s enemy...the EPA has become a political bully."
  • Farming
Excerpt: "The future success of Oregon farmers is endangered, however, because government policies stifle agricultural production with needless, uninformed, and overly burdensome regulations."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "I will vote to repeal the President’s plan for healthcare (ObamaCare)."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "One such reform would be securing the border, and a proper guest worker program that creates benefits for local communities while reducing the incentives for immigrants to cross the border illegally."
  • Abortion
Excerpt: "I will continually voice opposition to government funding for abortion procedures and fight to protect life at every stage."
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "Congress must halt the unconstitutional practice of restricting a person’s ability to purchase, transport, store, or possess arms on public lands or on that individual’s private property under the disguise of regulating interstate commerce or so-called concern for public health and safety."
  • Social Security and Medicare
Excerpt: "We must keep our promises to seniors but we also must recognize that Social Security and Medicare are not sustainable as currently laid out."
  • State Sovereignty
Excerpt: "I will oppose legislative acts that unconstitutionally enlarge government authority and threaten our individual freedom."
