Issues

Campaign themes

2014

In an article with the Roanoke-Chowan News Herald, Pierce supports the following:[2]

Family values

  • Excerpt: "As a Christian, I am a firm supporter of marriage (that being one man and one woman). I vehemently oppose abortion (an institution of murder) and I pledge that if elected, that I will do everything I can to end this institution of murder."

State sovereignty

  • Excerpt: "Pierce said, if elected, one of his priorities will be to restore state authority and sovereignty over the areas of energy, education, commerce and healthcare. For too long we have let the intellectually challenged in Washington D.C. (both Democrats and Republicans) govern us in those areas. The politicians in Washington D.C. have proven that they are incompetent and lack the ability to govern. It is therefore in our interest to remove from them these areas of governance and give them to the states, where they can be governed in a competent manner."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "My other priorities, should I get elected, will be to eliminate the income tax, reduce the sales tax if possible and reform the gas tax and local property taxes. I would support implementing ‘Constitutional carry’ in the state and will work towards eliminating all sanctuary cities in North Carolina."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "The U.S. Constitution does not grant any enumerated right or authority for the Federal government to regulate healthcare in this country. I do not obey unconstitutional laws, because such laws are illegal. In addition, as a Christian, I refuse to recognize the Federal government as any kind of sovereign over my health. I will recognize only one sovereign over my health and that is God, Himself. I am encouraging everyone reading this to join me, in civil disobedience to this unconstitutional, tyrannical, unjust and illegal law, by refusing to sign up for Obamacare."
