Campaign themes


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

  • National Security
Excerpt: "Government's most fundamental responsibility is to protect its citizens. After serving twenty six years on the front lines of law enforcement with the Los Angeles Police Department, I understand the tremendous threat to our future."
  • Border Security
Excerpt: "Border security and national security are closely linked and America's survival is dependent on securing our border."
  • Pro-Taxpayer
Excerpt: "Our taxes are too high because Congress spends too much, and what they do spend is often wasted by the bureaucracy. I support a strict limit on how fast government can grow. If we limit non-national security spending growth to a rate that is no greater than inflation, we can balance the budget and protect the long-term fiscal health of our country."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "One of the greatest problems facing many families is the cost of health care. I oppose efforts to socialize our medical system – I don't want some federal bureaucrat in Washington telling families what is best for them. "
  • 2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "I believe the 2nd Amendment is clear and that government should pass no law that restricts the right of any law-abiding citizen to purchase, own and legally use firearms. "
