Campaign themes


Peterson took Project Vote Smart's Political Courage Test, which measures candidates' willingness to respond to questions of policy; he received a rating of 100 percent. In his response, he answered in support of the right to choose, the right to bear arms (albeit with a license), decreasing spending (particularly in education, welfare, health care, and the environment), eliminating income and corporate taxes, decreasing alcohol/cigarette/gas/oil/property taxes, interstate health insurance compacts, tort reform, and civil unions for same-sex couples.

When asked for his legislative priorities, he replied with the decriminalization of drugs, as well as what he called the "Permission Principle," involving "a law that requires CEO's and union leaders to first obtain written permission from stock holders and union members before CEO's and union leaders can spend for their political purposes that portion of corporate money or union dues they want to spend on their political purposes."[1]
