Issues

2014

The following is a selection of the campaign issues on her website:

  • Role of government:
Excerpt:"I believe this government is too big, too intrusive and too powerful, and must be put back in its place by the people. The politicians don’t understand, they don’t decide what rights we get to have and what rights we lose. Our Rights come from our Creator and are guaranteed by our Constitution."[4]
  • Spending/debt:
Excerpt: "Politicians in Washington continue to spend, continue to raise the debt ceiling and continue to ignore the coming wave of entitlement costs that will bankrupt our nation. Now is not a time for politics as usual, we need real leaders with courage to make the difficult choices. Spending is out of control, our national debt is soaring and politicians continue to hide from the real challenges."[5]
  • Jobs/economy:
Excerpt: "In order to have jobs, you must have employers. It is not the role of the federal government to create jobs, it’s government’s role to provide the soil conditions for commerce and ensure a free market so businesses large and small can produce good paying jobs."[6]
  • Life:
Excerpt: "I do not believe it was an accident that our Founders listed life as the first of our God given rights. As a pro-life conservative I believe we should defend life and liberty from conception to natural death."[7]
