Campaign themes


Anderson's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Decrease the tax burden on citizens and businesses

  • Excerpt: "The larger the government intrusion into the economy, the more of a drag it is on free commerce. Every time an individual or business has to contend with an unnecessary regulatory burden, the cost is counted in time and money. Individuals and small business suffer the most, as larger enterprises have the resources to deal with larger regulatory burdens."

Reduce the regulatory burden on new and existing businesses

  • Excerpt: "Corruption. As large entities are favored in a highly regulated economy, their influence on the political process, and on individual politicians, grows and takes over the process. How many regulations favor large corporations and discourage individuals from starting new businesses, and stifle growth of existing small businesses?"

Enact comprehensive campaign finance reform. Corporations are not people

  • Excerpt: "Property. Property is not just real estate, or your old pickup truck. Your property is anything you own, and the wealth or value you create with your own resources, time and skill. Everyone has the right to dispose of their own property as they see fit. A majority of citizens within a political boundary should not be able to deprive a minority, not even a single person, of their lawful property. Workers can organize and represent their interest as a group, and a business can choose or choose not to negotiate with that group, at their own risk. Why? Because the workers are representing their own property rights, i.e. the fruit of their labor, and businesses are exercising their right to dispose of their own capital. To regulate the economy in favor of one side or the other skews the free negotiation between two legitimate competing interests, and restricts the potential prosperity of everyone involved."
