Issues

Campaign themes

2013

Delhomme’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Cut Taxes and Spending

Excerpt: "I believe that our state government should be limited to protecting our rights. It should not act as our provider, supplying us with health care, education, and other benefits. Recently, the Legislature and Governor passed a massive tax increase on Virginians. It was passed with the support of Republicans, Democrats, and Republican Governor Bob McDonnell. I oppose what they did."

  • End the War on Drugs

Excerpt: "Selling and using drugs may be personally unwise, but those activities don't violate anyone's rights. By establishing drug prohibition, our government has taken a modest problem and turned it into a huge problem. Now we have to deal with drug gangs and black markets, and taxpayers have to pay to keep thousands of people in jail."

  • Efficient transportation

Excerpt: "Government involvement in transportation drives up costs, reduces choice, creates congestion, and provides opportunities for corruption. In a free market, quality would improve, and competition would bring down prices. Customers and suppliers would determine how much of a particular transportation mode was offered, such as roads, trains, buses, taxis, bicycle lanes, and pedestrian access."
