Campaign themes


Barbieri's campaign website lists the following issues:[1]

Excerpt: "By definition, our posterity requires that we protect the innocent. Abortion, like murder, should be a crime."
Excerpt: "The effect of this invasion is huge, and the solution to this issue rests in the term ‘illegal’ alien. The moment an illegal immigrant hits the system, be it the hospital, a traffic stop, or a schoolhouse, that person should be deported. Since we cannot now trust the Federal Government to protect the rights of its citizens, Idaho must act without Federal assistance."
Excerpt: "Without private ownership and personal control of property, there is no security in one’s person. Private property is an essential part of the Liberty acknowledged as God given and self-evident in our Declaration of Independence."
Excerpt: "Our gun rights are not negotiable. Idahoans must defend our right to keep and bear arms."
Excerpt: "The institution of public schools hold an important place in educating the secular in our society. The budget of the schools, however, cannot be unlimited. I support the recently passed legislation requiring school districts of more than 350 students to post their expenditures on-line for all to see. One more thing: If you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and God, then pull your kids out of that Godless institution."
