Campaign themes


Fuehr's campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Getting Americans Back to Work: "The most critical issue facing us today is getting Americans back to work. So many of society’s problems decrease when people are working; less domestic violence, fewer broken families, more money for cities and states for education, less homelessness and so on."
  • The Budget Deficit: "The size of the current budget deficit hurts job creation, America’s competitiveness and even our national security. The budget and the growth in the national debt must be reduced by reducing the scope of federal activities and returning many functions back to the states, increasing the efficiency of the government operations and greater scrutiny of the current tax code."
  • National Defense: "Ronald Reagan once said, “Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.” I agree that maintaining a strong national defense is vital to the well-being of our citizens. Congress needs to fully fund our military and recognize that now is not the time to implement the funding reductions recommended by this Democratic administration."
  • Education: "Our children’s education is best handled closest to home. It is not an appropriate role for the federal government. Parents, not Washington, know what is best for their children. Until we can lower taxes, the Department of Education needs to reduce the scope of their involvement and return the money back to the states as unrestricted block grants in proportion to the amount of tax money paid by the state."
  • Immigration Reform: "Immigration is a federal responsibility as outlined in the Constitution but the federal government isn’t doing anything to solve the problem. A reform of our immigration policies is long overdue and the need gets more acute every day. The Utah Compact provides a good outline of humanitarian principles that can guide our behavior, but to effectively solve the problem, we must take positive action."
