Campaign themes


Popaditch's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Taxation
Excerpt: " Taxation is necessary, but is not an endless source of funding for pet projects. Your income belongs to you, not the federal government. Every dollar taxed is one less dollar in the private sector where it can grow the economy and jobs. Finally, the use of taxation for class warfare is morally wrong."
  • Balanced Budget
Excerpt: "Congress is now on its 4th consecutive year of spending the American taxpayers’ money without a budget. Spending must be cut and tax revenue must be raised to fix the damage that has already been done."
  • Legislative Equality
Excerpt: "Our founding documents guarantee all Americans equal protection under the law. Legislation that favors one group of Americans over another for arbitrary reasons is institutional discrimination. This is not only a brazen contradiction of The Bill of Rights, but also unethical and immoral. We, the people deserve better."
  • Grow The Economy
Excerpt: "Congress can do three things immediately to grow the economy. Lower taxation will lead to more private sector growth. Remove obstructions to domestic energy to lower production costs. Remove regulations that create non-competitive monopolies. None of these require taxpayer funding. All will result in economic growth and jobs."
  • Representation or Compromise
Excerpt: "A Congressional Representative must represent all of the people in that Congressional District, not the ones he agrees with. That involves compromise here, in the 53rd District. When your Congressman goes to Washington and compromises with politicians who represent others, they are no longer representing you. That is unacceptable."
