Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Stinchfield's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Deficit Spending
Excerpt: "In 2010, voters sent Barack Obama a message: Stop spending our country into bankruptcy! Our current Beltway Republicans responded with a whopping 2% cut in spending from the prior year. Think about that: Republicans call spending 98% of what Nancy Pelosi did, a “cut.” This is not the response voters wanted and it’s not the action our country needs."
  • The Fair Tax
Excerpt: "The tax code is a mess and I firmly believe in our tax system needs to be overhauled. My in-depth research and investigation leads to me to support the “Fair Tax.” A 23 percent national sales tax that does away with all other forms of federal taxation."
  • Energy Policy
Excerpt: "We must make it easier for the independent oil companies to seek out new opportunities, We can not solely rely on “Big Oil.” America’s over burdensome regulations is what causes our dependence on foreign oil, NOT a lack of the commodity here at home."
  • National Security
Excerpt: "The main responsibility of our federal government is to protect our sovereignty by providing for a strong national defense. It is imperative that we maintain the most proficient and capable fighting force in the world."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "America is a proud nation of immigrants. Our future prosperity depends on wise, just, and orderly immigration policies. America should always welcome those who can contribute to our economy and culture."
