Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Barlow lists the following issues on her campaign website. For a complete list, click here[3]

  • The Economy
Excerpt: "We do not have a Revenue problem, we have a SPENDING problem. It is not the Federal Government’s job to pick winners and losers, act as venture capital for private corporations, or spend for Unconstitutional reasons. We can not now nor will we ever be able to afford a cradle to grave nanny state."
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "The Federal government should be as small as possible to do the things that it is Constitutionally required to do. The problem with sending money to Washington to do anything is that it is NOT cost efficient. For every dollar that the Federal government takes in taxes, less than 50% is returned to the benefit of We the People. And, most of that return comes in the form of programs or “pork” spending, things which the Founders never intended the Federal government to be involved in the first place!"
  • Budget
Excerpt: "Congress would make and pass a truly balanced budget each year, with no items “off budget” just to make it look right. For too many years things have been left off budget in order to continue deficit spending while giving the appearance of doing the right thing. I call that lying to the American people, and it needs to be stopped."
  • Tax Reform
Excerpt: "I am in favor of abolishing the IRS, and replacing it with the Fair Tax or other consumption/sales tax. Personally, I think tying taxes to income was a very bad choice. It provides a disincentive for earning, saving, and investing — all things that create a robust economy. "
  • Reforming Congress
Excerpt: "I am in favor of Term Limits. If I am elected to serve, I would NOT be spending all my time thinking about re-election. In fact, I signed the U.S. Term Limits Amendment Pledge on 12 Sept 2011. In compliance with that Pledge, I will volunteer FOUR-SIX YEARS to serve in Congress, and then I will campaign and work to help replace myself with some other worthy Conservative individual."
