Campaign website
Karl King is a 2014 Independent candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from Oregon.[1]

Campaign themes


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

  • Privacy: "I feel that there should be legislation passed that defines what data should have an expectation of privacy and that it requires the government to obtain a specific search warrant to violate that expectation of privacy."
  • Budget: "Such a plan should include the elimination of federal spending that is not in the best interest of the federal government as a whole such as; the 3.3 billion dollars in earmarks in fiscal year 2012. A plan to reduce national debt would also have to include increased tax revenues and I would propose that companies that transfer income to offshore subsidiaries be taxed on that transfer as though all of it were profit. If a corporation is going to profit from what the United States has to offer and the opportunities it affords them then they should be paying their fair share."
