Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Preservation of Democracy
Excerpt: "When individuals work hard and are successful they deserve to celebrate their success. The problem arises through the involvement of corporate mega monies in the American political process."
  • The Economy
Excerpt: "During this period of economic stress, the critical issue is creating jobs to revitalize our economy; jobs that are sustainable and meaningful in this 21st Century. The first step is to stop draining our national wealth with wars that are killing and maiming our young while creating riches for a few."
  • The Military/Industrial Complex
Excerpt: "President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of the military/industrial complex in the 1950’s. We must end the waste and corruption within this vast incestuous network."
  • The Military
Excerpt: "Our Constitution provides for our national defense. The men and women in military service must be trained and equipped with the best materials technology can provide."
  • Education
Excerpt: "We must demand quality education for all, not just for the wealthy. Education must be flexible to meet the demands and skills of all our youth. The cost of education must be affordable to all seeking to improve by learning."
