Campaign themes

2014

Courser's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Michigan Families need better choices and affordable options for educating their children. We need to expand school choice options, education reform that utilizes all the tools we have to the best of our abilities, to put more parents in control of their children’s education and to work to eliminate federal and state bureaucracies that hinder creativity, choice, and freedom of expression from administrators, teachers and students."

Freedom to Be Born

  • Excerpt: "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are at the core of American values. I unequivocally believe in the right to life of unborn children. I’m 100% Pro-Life. I will not vote for any bill that authorizes or pays for abortion under any circumstance."

2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I believe people have the right to protect themselves from harm, including that which comes from their own government."

Ending Crony Capitalism And Creating Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We need to let individuality, entrepreneurship, determination and the marketplace establish a thriving private sector and not the government."

Roads

  • Excerpt: "Our infrastructure is in disarray and the potholes are out of control. In fact, according to American Society of Civil Engineers, Michigan has the 3rd worst roads in the country. We can fix them now and we can do it without raising taxes and fees."
