Leone's campaign website lists the following issues:
- No more bailouts
- Excerpt: "Republicans and Democrats keep interfering in our economy, making taxpayers pay when big businesses make bad decisions. That just encourages them to act irresponsibly. The government should stop picking winners and losers."
- End foreign wars
- Excerpt: "Republicans used to say they opposed nation-building, yet they have led nation-building efforts in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan. Democrats promised to end the wars abroad, but they have only prolonged them. We need to end our policies of foreign interventionism now, stop the drone attacks, and bring our troops home."
- Shut down federal departments
- Excerpt: "We need to shut down federal departments such as Education, Commerce and Homeland Security. Republicans have often promised to reduce these departments, but have not followed through on these promises."
- No more farm subsidies
- Excerpt: "Politicians from agricultural states use farm subsidies to buy votes. Farmers don't need subsidies, and most of the benefits go to huge agribusinesses. Let's reduce the burden on taxpayers by ending farm subsidies."
- End the TSA
- Excerpt: "The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) wastes our money groping us at airports. The TSA isn't doing us any good, it's just wasteful security theater that violates our rights. Let's end it."
