Campaign themes

Ladd's website talks about the following issues:

  • Abortion
Excerpt: "I believe that the right to life was a God-given unalienable right that applies to all human beings from the the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof."
  • Marriage
Excerpt: "I believe that marriage was a divinely ordained institution involving one man and one woman."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "The Constitution does not authorize the federal government to control the nation's health-care system. It certainly does not authorize Congress to require every American to purchase health-care insurance. I support legislation similar to Virginia's to protect North Carolinians from this unconstitutional federal oppression."
  • Education
Excerpt: "I think that individual liberty, more free enterprise, and less government interference will result in better education."
  • Spending
Excerpt: "Government spending is out of control at the federal level and at the state level. I am committed to cutting spending and taxes in North Carolina."
  • Annexation
Excerpt: "The Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution forbids any state from depriving any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. Property rights are important. I think that North Carolinians living outside a city deserve better protection from forced annexation."
