Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Hodges's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Fiscal Policy
Excerpt: "Taxes should be collected and used as close to the same locality as possible. Use tax revenues for the general welfare rather than social agendas. The State should opt out of Federal Programs that require trading personal freedoms for money, and distort individual choice. Sacrifice is necessary to maintain and restore Individual Choice and Government Flexibility. By dismantling exorbitant regulations in the business and social arenas we can alleviate some of the pressures that keep our economy stagnant. By dismantling exorbitant regulations in the business and social arenas we can alleviate some of the pressures that keep our economy stagnant."
  • Moral Issues
Excerpt: "It is not the role of government to legislate morality and interfere with choice. We should work to remove laws that prevent the expression of liberty and individual choice. As long as individual choices do not interfere with the rights of others, there should be no legislation preventing any specific choice."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Skilled, well-paid teachers should make curriculum decisions locally. Families have the right to decide what options are best for each child in the family. Adults have the responsibility to be active in their local educational institutions, and take an active interest in the welfare of the children in their sphere of influence. Public educators should receive competitive wages, and budget cuts should not affect K-12 education."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Undoubtedly our healthcare system is in dire need of reform. Though, increased regulations such as the Affordable Care Act, neglect the value of Individual Choice. Once we move toward a centralized model, choice is distorted."
