Campaign themes


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

  • NDAA Explained
Excerpt: "Constitutional attorney, KrisAnne Hall, explains the dangers of NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). Take the time to study how this crucial legislation affects YOU. Then you will understand what a phenomenal researcher Barbara Carlson is--the clear choice who we need to send to Washington."
  • A Congress Gone Mad
Excerpt: "Insanity ran amuck again in the House on April 26th with the rushed vote on CISPA now passed- early -in the House. Read HR 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011... and see who voted FOR it."
  • Constitutionally Limited Government
Excerpt: "Now more than ever in history we MUST elect Constitutional Conservatives as our leaders. Now more than ever the direction of our country is being misdirected down a very, very dark path. We cannot get it wrong this time."
  • What's In Store for America...
Excerpt: "Global governance…mandates…empowering…the government preventing violent extremism…global warming…occupy nonsense. Our country is quickly running amuck. Redistribution of wealth is being touted as necessary because (1) the U.S. has contributed to the greenhouse gases and (2) it’s not fair to other nations. America needs to pay up."
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "Americans are now being thrown the Alinsky radical Left’s bone to be “civil” and “stop the rhetoric.” (A breath of fresh air that the Left has finally opened a dictionary and came up with a new word, perhaps now dismissing the thought that they really didn’t grasp what “transparency” really meant.)"
