Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Lundberg's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Defense; National and Individual
Excerpt: "History shows the absolute necessity of always being prepared. With looming nuclear and terrorist threats from various places around the world, we must maintain a strong military and even stronger diplomacy. We must also resist the pull of a one-size-fits-all, European-style socialism model, and the temptation to incorporate international law into our American judicial system. America’s greatness is built upon a strong foundation of unique principles of government that must never be diluted."
  • Clean Air, Clean Water
Excerpt: "Aggressive energy development must preserve the quality of our environment. Responsible stewardship of our great land demands we do no less for future generations. However, the current EPA system is a becoming a significant stumbling block to our personal freedoms, and to our economy, and it must be overhauled."
  • Medical Care
Excerpt: "Today we enjoy unprecedented medical technologies, but the economic model, driven by too many government mandates and subsidies, has made medical treatment unaffordable for far too many families. More subsidies and mandates, including the unconstitutional mandate to buy the federal government’s brand of medical insurance, with its limited availability of treatment, will not fix the problem."
  • Values, Life, and the Family
Excerpt: "For our nation to meet the challenges of today’s complex world, we must hold fast to the values that have been the foundation of our great land. Honesty, integrity, and hard work are essential for a prosperous people."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Educational opportunities must be the best in the world for our kids. However, Congress was never empowered to administer or direct education. This is a local concern, clearly reserved for the states and the people."
