Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Lapham's campaign website lists the following issues:[2]

  • Abortion: " I recognize that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on both sides. I believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for her conscientious consideration."
  • Border Security: "The United States, like all sovereign nations, has an absolute right to secure its borders and forbid any foreign national to enter this country. We should not tolerate anyone refusing to obey our laws regarding proper entry into this county."
  • Business and Economy: "Except for courts to sort out the protection of lives and property, governments should keep their hands out of business. Voluntary economic exchange is the only way; government intervention is not justified. Further, government interference in business on behalf of some citizens at the expense of others is inherently unjust."
  • Consumer Protection: " Federal safety regulation can and should be abolished in favor of market institutions analogous to Underwriters Laboratory certification. Food and Drug Administration oversight should be limited to safety, leaving efficacy up to the marketplace."
  • Criminal Justice: " In a free society crimes are, and ought to be, be limited to aggression against persons and property, including fraud. So-called “victimless crime” laws are incompatible with liberty. Drug laws today are among the most destructive, counter-productive and anti-freedom laws on the books."
