Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Middlebrook's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Our Founding Principles and the 10th Amendment
Excerpt: "The U.S. Constitution is the foundation of our country. It provides for a federal government that is by the people and for the people to protect their God given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Just like a home's foundation, everything that is built thereon is subject to the integrity of that foundation."
  • Limited Government and Repealing Obamacare
Excerpt: "The U.S. government by the people for the people has grown to the extent that according to the bureau of labor statistics in 2007 the ratio of non-government to government workers had grown to an astounding level of 10:1."
  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "Over 80% of Americans are employed by our small businesses. Our antiquated tax code and mind-boggling federal regulations create a burden on these businesses and stifle job growth in America. We can immediately stimulate job growth in our small businesses and family farms and ranches by lifting excessive regulatory burdens like the Dodd Frank Act and ending the unfair and unproductive death tax"
  • Value Life
Excerpt: "Abortion is the number one cause of death in America. The annual number of deaths to the unborn in this nation exceeds the combined total of the CDC’s top two leading cause of deaths of heart disease and cancer."
  • Illegal Immigration
Excerpt: "Immigration laws have a purpose, to protect the sovereignty and safety of our nation. The current laws are failing us and immigrants that want to be a productive part of America."
