Pierce's campaign website listed the following issues:
- America Needs Fixing
- Excerpt: "Jobs, the Economy, Energy Production, the Debt, the Budget, Federal Spending, the Tax Code, Wars, Corruption, Illegal Immigration, Religion, and our Constitution: These are all areas of concern to Americans. This begs the question: How did we get here to begin with?"
- Unresolved Issues
- Excerpt: "Our congress keeps kicking the proverbial can down the road. As a Vietnam Veteran who understands the cost of freedom, we are suffering from issues which should have been dealt with years ago."
- Liberty and Freedom
- Excerpt: "Capitalism and free enterprise made this country great. Because I am a staunch advocate for the free-market, I will say we have failed to protect it from the one thing which will destroy it: Greed."
- Our Tax Dollars
- Excerpt: "President Obama is pushing for your fair share of taxes. The Communist manifesto calls for a heavy progressive tax. Is that what you want?"
