Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Kuchar's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Foreign Policy
Excerpt: "Our foreign policy must have a cohesive consistency, based upon real world situations, with clear and precise goals in mind. Foremost in those goals must be the best interest of America, and what will most preserve our heritage, sovereignty, freedom and liberties. Every action, every treaty, every endeavor must be viewed against that backdrop."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "The current approach by our leaders in Washington towards immigration threatens to undo all the contributions that prior immigrants have made to our American heritage."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "The root of our country's financial problem is a constitutional one, namely, our representatives and others in government neither understand nor they respect the limitations placed upon them by our Constitution."
  • Gun Rights
Excerpt: "The push by the federal government to force unconstitutional gun control upon us has alarmed a vast majority of the citizenry to the danger of a statist government trying to strip them of their liberties by denying the second most unalienable of our natural rights - that of self-preservation/defense (the first being the right to life)."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "The prices of all of our goods and services are going up because they all require energy to either produce, maintain and deliver and we have to look no further than Washington to see why."

2012

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

  • The Economy
Excerpt: "Ayn Rand once said, ."..political freedom cannot exist without economic freedom." The economy is my first and highest priority."
  • States Rights
Excerpt: "It was our founders' intention that the states would be the "protector" of the rights of the people from the encroachment of the general government. "
  • Judicial Reform
Excerpt: .".. they assume the aura of 'gods' possessing superior wisdom who determine what is best for us by usurping the authority of our elected representatives."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "The matter of immigration is inextricably woven into the other serious matters confronting our nation, namely national security, border safety, citizenship, and "balkanization." "
  • Energy
Excerpt: "There is much talk about our need for a "sound energy policy," but that is not the answer to our energy problem. Indeed, government policy and planning is our problem. "
  • Term Limits
Excerpt: .".. living within the confines of the District of Columbia distorts your perspective of what is best and needed by the country and what are the desires of the citizens 'back home.'"
