Campaign themes


Bradley's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Federal Deficit/Federal Debt
Excerpt: "In January 2009 the federal debt was $10.6 trillion. In less than two years that number has grown to exceed $15 trillion, and now Obama has Congressional permission for it to reach $17 trillion before we elect a new president. This rapidly growing number is a testament to the fact that our current Congress cannot control themselves regarding spending."
  • No More Dependence on Foreign Oil
Excerpt: "Our nation is being held hostage by oil producing nations like Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Libya, and Kuwait. The slightest political or terrorist act in those countries can result in fuel cost spikes which hard working American tax payers must pay."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "U.S. tax payers are hard working, creative, intelligent individuals who, when given the opportunity, will continue to make America the greatest economic engine in the history of the world. Right now unemployed workers here in District 33 are not wanting a hand out, they simply need the government to get out of the way."
  • Career Politicians/Term Limits
Excerpt: "At every Tea Party, 9/12, Republican or conservative event I attend in North Texas and District 33, we discuss that as voters we hope to limit terms for politicians with our vote. I could not agree more!"
