Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Border Security
Excerpt: "The vulnerable situation of our border is one of our nation’s biggest threats. We need to secure our borders as soon as possible therefore making this issue one of our nation’s top priority."
  • Israel
Excerpt: "Israel is a relatively new country surrounded by countries that refuse to accept its existence. Israel has been our best ally for over 60 years and our relationship with Israel is essential for global and local stability."
  • Small Businesses
Excerpt: "Small businesses are one of the most important economic venues of this country. The economic situation today has made starting a small business an extreme hardship. I believe the government should support the entrepreneur, making the American dream possible again."
  • Employment / Tax Credit
Excerpt: "Tax credits are a very crucial and are a proven method in creating jobs, stimulating the economy."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "Our tax system is too complicated and needs to be simplified, I will fight to explore and find a better and friendlier tax code, I will also look into the option of a flat tax rate. "
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "America is the land of the free and home of the brave, as a free and brave man or women you have the right to defend yourself, your family, your property and other law abiding citizens. A firearm is just a piece of metal. A firearm does not have a mind of its own, it does not make judgments. A human being needs to pull the trigger."
  • One Bill, One Issue
Excerpt: "When our founding fathers wrote our constitution and laws, it was simple, each law or amendment was related to one issue and was only a few lines to a couple of pages in length. Today's bills are over 10,000 pages and includes laws that are not part of the main issue."
