Issues

Campaign themes

2014

McCall's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Cut the Spending
Excerpt: "It’s the spending that is feeding the beast that is eating our Constitution, our Churches, and ultimately our personal dignity. It is not only the fault of George W. Bush or Barack Obama, but it is ours for not understanding the balance of powers: the Constitution clearly states that the House of Representatives appropriates money."
  • National Debt
Excerpt: "gain, Congress spends the money. They have been kissing our babies while selling them into financial slavery. This is real, and it will not end well if we continue to trust Congress to fix it. If you are like the minority of us who have not been practicing rational ignorance, then for the sake of your children, and mine, I ask you to turn with me and work to help rebuild this country."
  • Growth
Excerpt: "There are revolutions going on in the energy industry, the nanotechnology industry, and the biotechnology industry. We can have a new American century of prosperity and growth through manufacturing. The problem isn’t our wages because we are the most productive people in the world. The problem is government agencies choking off our businesses."
  • Abolish the IRS
Excerpt: "The IRS has been targeting Conservatives and not allowing organizations to be granted 501(c)3 and 501(c)4 status (non-profit, tax-free status). Many of these problems have still not been fixed. The IRS mandates that you comply with thousands of federal regulations, including ObamaCare, which will drive up insurance premiums."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Obamacare is the arrogant takeover of 17% of the economy by bureaucrats who think they can make better decisions than you. It is representative of the complete failure of the establishment of both parties to deal with the current problems in our medical system."
