Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Dolgos' campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Economic Freedom
Excerpt: "The purpose of the federal government, regarding the economy, is to provide laws and sensible regulation that create the conditions for success. Their purpose is not to micromanage the economy through punitive taxation and regulation. We all agree that there are important functions of government, and obviously, those functions cost money to run."
  • Personal Freedom
Excerpt: "The United States Constitution, especially as expressed in the Bill of Rights, grants us certain personal freedoms. Unfortunately, the two major parties have made decisions where they feel that the personal freedoms that they believe in are the only ones worth protecting. They are both wrong."
  • Foreign Policy
Excerpt: "Being the world's only superpower, many responsibility for the world falls on our shoulders. Appropriate actions relating to that responsibility will pay many dividends for our nation in terms of saving money, saving lives and restoring our position as not only the world's military leader, but also its moral leader."
  • Government Policy
Excerpt: "The issues that I spoke about earlier concerning economic freedoms and the issue shown here combine to create a highly disfunction and disrespected government. The people of this country want a government that tries to do the right thing for the people and not for themselves. I promise to make every effort to regain that respect."
