Campaign themes


McMichael listed the following issues on his campaign website:[6]

  • Budget: "Let us start each year at ZERO and require each government program to prove why they need the dollars they are allotted."
  • Taxes: "A little known fact is individual income taxes only make up 40% of the revenue in our country, let us try to cut that in half and give the people 540 billion dollars of their money back."
  • National security: "Maybe it is time for Congress to hold people accountable when they ignore federal law, and make federal employees follow the laws that Congress has passed. Enforcing these laws alone would help stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants across our borders."
