Campaign themes

Excerpt: "I support term limits for both houses of Congress. I have signed a pledge to serve no more than 2 terms!"
  • Balanced Budget
Excerpt: "Virtually all states, counties, and cities in America must balance their respective budgets. The Federal Government must be reined in. We don't have a Tax Problem, we are suffering from a Spending Problem."
  • Energy Independence
Excerpt: "We must get off foreign oil, period! America has an abundant supply of oil and natural gas we should be tapping as we search for clean alternative fuel sources like solar, tidal geothermal, and ultimately hydrogen"
  • Immigration
