Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Singleton's campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Economy
Excerpt: "We want limited but effective government that gives us value for our tax dollars. We want government to protect our lives, not run our lives. Washington is spending $10.4 billion per day – three times more than in 2007."
  • Education
Excerpt: "The state of education in government schools is abysmal. The quality of education is the number one civil rights issue in the minority community. Each year more than one million high school seniors fail to graduate. Every day 7,000 children drop out of high school. Clearly, Washington’s pouring more money into education since 1971 has not improved the product."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "Whether you believe global warming is man-made or represents another age in the 4 billion years the earth has lived, we should try to keep our environment clean and healthy and preserve it for future generations. It is just the right thing to do."
  • Health Care
Excerpt: "We all agreed that something had to be done to improve healthcare delivery in our country. But the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) neither protects patients nor is affordable."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "We have people from all over the world who are here illegally. This is a palpable problem but Americans like a success story and do not hate immigrants. What we do not like is the lack of a reasonable immigration policy and the piece-meal enforcement of the laws already in place."
