Candidate for
U.S. House, Wisconsin, District 7
Campaign website
Dale Lehner was a 2012 Independent candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 7th Congressional District of Wisconsin.


Lehner lists his campaign platform on his website:

  • "America’s government needs reform if we are to retain our excellence and exceptionalism. I favor changes to the Constitution to reflect the size of our country, the development of a National Treasury, the protection of our individual rights, the joint sovereignty of the States, and the reduction of federal laws related to the people.
  • Corporations are not people and I would seek legislation that defines corporate rights and responsibilities as a legal fictional entity to separate it from personhood.
  • I believe that the word “infringed” was placed in the second Amendment for a reason and that the right to bear arms is being infringed upon today. I would seek changes in all federal laws to recognize that properly trained, reasonable, and responsible citizens can bear arms across state lines, across city boundaries, and across America.
  • There are tasks and responsibilities that only big companies working with big government can perform. I support a government large enough to make big companies tow the line and I support companies big enough to compete around the world.
  • I support American citizenship and the right of the USA to control its borders. If there are illegals caught in America, I support their return to their country of origin. There are reasons to become Americans and I support laws that value American citizenship over illegal residents. I support illegals that wish to obtain citizenship, that are employed, and that have been good citizens in all other aspects. I support sending illegal criminals to foreign countries to serve their time and be released.
  • I do not favor abortion but I reject any effort toward legislative action until there are 50% women in Congress. Men with the force of law do not have the right to legislate towards women citizens on what to do if/when life is created. I reject any federal funding of abortion but support federal funding for education programs for life affirmation and responsible birth control.
  • I support modifying the 17th Amendment to restore State government representation in the Senate. I favor increasing the House proportionally with population growth."[1]
