Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Alexander lists the following issues on his campaign website:[2]

  • Healthcare: "Our nation’s health care system is at a critical crossroads. That’s why I will support any and all efforts to repeal ObamaCare. Period."
  • Economy & jobs: "I support a pro-jobs economic agenda to heal our nation. It’s time to get excessive government and burdensome regulations out of the way."
  • Budget: "To heal our nation, we must alleviate the tax burden of American families, eliminate wasteful spending, and fight for a Balanced Budget Amendment."
  • Family life: "Family relationships bring joy and meaning to life. That’s why I’m pro-marriage, pro-family, and pro-life."
  • Education: "Learning takes place in the home and in the classroom, not in the offices of bureaucrats. That’s why I support returning federal education dollars to the state and local level."
  • Constitutional freedom: "Americans of today are the inheritors of a brilliant founding document, written and ordained to “secure the blessings of liberty” to all generations of citizens of our nation."
  • Energy & environment: "For the first time in decades, the United States is on the brink of energy independence. We must take advantage of this great opportunity. I support responsible domestic energy production in the United States."
  • Service: "To me, the definition of leadership is service. I define leadership this way because as a Christian, I look to Jesus Christ as the model for leadership."
  • Military & defense: "A peaceful world depends on clear and decisive leadership from the United States, and a strong United States starts with respect for those who serve to protect us."
  • Community: "I support proven, results-oriented, faith-based initiatives and fostering more charitable work to lessen the burden on and role of government."
