On his official website, Lingamfelter says he stands for "Faith, Family and Freedom - Virginia Values."[4] He explains his platform:

  • A strong faith-based value system is critical to the future of our country. Our Founders knew this and we must return to such a posture if we are to remain a great State and Nation.
  • Family is the best social program ever created. Government has a profound interest in encouraging sound families if we are to produce responsible citizens.
  • Freedom is our most precious right. Government's primary purpose is to protect our freedoms. These freedoms include the right to life, freedom from oppressive taxation, and the right to keep and bear arms; rights all included in the U.S. Constitution by our Founding Fathers.
