Gilliland's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "As individuals we have to run our household budgets tightly, and we should demand that the government does the same"
- Excerpt: "I'm against the progressive tax system. I do not believe that individuals should be punished by paying a higher tax rate due to being financially successful. I support the Fair Tax. "
- Corporate Bailouts
- Excerpt: "A business should never be deemed to large to fail by the government. Capitalism is based on the principal of risk/reward. If you allow businesses to only enjoy the upside without the consequences of failure then your capitalistic model has failed leaving the taxpayers to pay the bill."
- Civil Liberties
- Excerpt: "All people should be allowed to make personal decisions free from government interference."
- Drug Policy
- Excerpt: "Over half a million Americans were arrested last year for marijuana possession. It is widely agreed upon that marijuana is less harmful to individuals & society than alcohol."
