Bronson's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Debt and Balanced Budget
- Excerpt: "here has been a concerted effort by the power brokers in Washington and New York to convince the average voter that we are sinking in red ink. They do this to frighten us into legislation that cuts government programs and weaken government regulations that could affect their operations. The truth is that this country makes $15 trillion each year (GNP) and our debt of $15 trillion is large but not overwhelming."
- The Environment
- Excerpt: "Our precious planet is being raped by the greed of multi-national companies, especially in the developing world where governmental controls were bargained away by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund insisting on Friedmanite policies from the Chicago School of Economics"
- Right to Life
- Excerpt: "If you must have a label, call me moderate pro-life. I say that because I would never encourage abortion, but the final decision has to belong to the woman, herself. Existing laws are sufficient. The focus must be on preventing unwanted pregnancy, and the surest way, and least expensive I might add, is abstinence."
- 2nd Amendment
- Excerpt: "I believe all citizens, except felons and the mentally ill, have the right to bear arms. The 2nd amendment was written at a time when our country had just overcome occupation by England. The greatest violence against citizens has not been caused by legally armed citizens, but by governments like Germany, USSR, China, Cambodia and many others preying on their unarmed populations."
