Campaign themes


Cheadle's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Energy: "The United States has fallen prey to being a slave to foreign oil. There was a time many years ago when foreign oil was very inexpensive and those from whom we purchased it were not at that time blowing up themselves and others for "religious" reasons. Today we are well on our way to importing 75 percent of the oil we consume."
  • Healthcare: "National healthcare is unsustainable in this country largely because we have become a nation void of discipline. This lack of discipline has left us as a nation filled with gluttons, alcoholics, drug addicts (legal and illegal), (smokers and drinkers), many of whom are uninsured and/or unable or unwilling to pay for any of the healthcare they receive. The diseases that are plaguing us as a nation are diseases of luxury and are largely self-induced."
  • Illegal immigration: "Illegal immigration has become a curse to this country. Our jails and prisons are filled with illegal aliens, many of whom are gang members, at a cost of billions of dollars per year. Ironically, an illegal alien in prison has health and dental care that many American citizens do not have."
  • ObamaCare: "The propaganda used to promote ObamaCare centered on convincing the masses that it was the answer to the high cost of medical care. As we are finding out, ObamaCare is more about government control of the masses than anything else. If ObamaCare was such a great idea why were politicians bribed in a manner and we've never seen in the history of our country?"
  • Jobs and the Economy: "What we are experiencing in the economy, high unemployment, loss of jobs, decreased hiring, etc., can be directly related to burdens imposed by three things – taxes, unions, and regulation."
