Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Hampton submitted the following issues for her campaign:[2]

  • Community

"Solutions will not be found in "top down" government. Real solutions begin in our communities because we know best how to define problems and find answers. Once people change the conversation in their own districts, then the national conversation will change and Washington will change. We must not allow the power of money in government, the pull of politics or the influence of corporate America to speak for us."

  • The Independent movement

"Independent thinking is what made our country great. Even though Independents are the largest political group in the country, in the current House there are none. Congress doesn't look like us or act like us because it is not like us. The Republican and Democratic parties don't support us and no longer deserve our support. It's time to "leave the party" and elect Independents."

  • Corporations

"Organizers of the American Anti-Corruption Act claim that it will get "money out of politics, so the people can get back in." I agree. It is an example of a piece of legislation I would work toward passing because special interest money must be removed from the political process. Our economy can never recover as long as corporate interests are being served ahead of the interests of the citizenry."

  • Agriculture

"We must remain constantly vigilant to maintain a safe food supply and work to encourage communities to achieve food self-sufficiency as much as possible. I will never vote in favor of Monsanto's best interests because Monsanto is only looking out for Monsanto. That it is so often supported with legislation is a prime example of corporate interests taking precedence over the welfare of the people."
