Issues

Campaign themes

2011

Ransone’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Preserve our Northern Neck way of life.

Excerpt: "Support our local natural and historical resources to create new jobs and economic growth."

  • Support the existing job creators across the District

Excerpt: "I understand the pride of labor intensive work and craftsmanship, maintaining personal relationships with customers, standing by your product, and being responsible to other business owners and clients. I will be a strong voice and defend the hard working people that are the foundation of small communities across America."

  • Secure our future by developing a friendly business climate in Virginia with less government involvement.

Excerpt: "I will promote jobs and opportunities locally by cutting wasteful programs and cutting taxes. Encourage new stable, long term jobs for the area in the technical and medical fields. I will always defend and protect Right to Work laws. Yes, I too will jump on board with officials to draw high speed internet providers to our rural area. I understand this is crucial to our future."

  • Plan transportation and infrastructure as we grow – not after.

Excerpt: "Fight for our fair share of transportation dollars. Insist that once our localities receive tax dollars, they are spent efficiently to maintain our priority needs on roads and bridges."

  • Protect our Property Rights and Always Defend the Repeal of the Death Tax.

Excerpt: "These rights are not given to us by our government – We have earned our property and have the authority on its use."

  • We must insist on energy independence.

Excerpt: "Businesses and families are crippled by soaring energy costs. I believe we should work resources on our own soil to reduce financial pressure on families and relieve our dependence on foreign control of our future."

  • Education is best controlled at the local level-by parents, teachers, and citizens.

Excerpt: "All children should have an equal opportunity to the same education and be able to compete at home or around the world."

  • "I will always defend the Right to Life and all Virginia values."
  • "I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment and will support the rights of gun owners, hunters, and sportsmen."
  • "Virginia is the cradle of American liberty. I will always fight for the rights guaranteed to us by the Virginia and U.S. Constitutions."
