Fiscal responsibility needed for U.S. to lead the world
We deserve better from our federal government. With an alarming debt and broken entitlement programs, we cannot keep kicking the can down the road. We must embrace policies which reduce the spirit of entitlement while rewarding hard work.
Taxes are too high and costs are rising, because politicians won't make the tough decisions to root out corruption and waste from government. I am outraged by the many families suffering because of bureaucratic incompetence in the VA.
Many of my team members at ProShots are veterans, so I will not tolerate excuses or look the other way when it affects those who have dedicated their lives to protecting our homeland.
Fiscal responsibility is not just a good idea for Washington DC.
For our country to lead the world, we must encourage personal and household financial responsibility and embrace policies that lead to superior long-term global competitiveness. The economy, and every American consumer, benefits when we do.

As mayor, revitalized downtown & turned around economy
Chris knows what it takes to turn around an economy, because he had done it for his home town: Since his election as Spring Lake's youngest ever mayor, the town has been noted for dramatic change for the better. Key to this has been a revitalization
effort of its main street spearheaded by Chris, redevelopment along the blighted Bragg Blvd, and redevelopment of Mendoza Park the communities "flagship" park. Upon his election Chris was noted for his collaborative approach with the Chamber of Commerce
and business leaders and aggressive hands on approach to redevelopment.
Chris expanded town services to include a new business incubator, and workforce development programs. His efforts have already seen results with new businesses attracted to the
town, a multi-million dollar mixed use development along the town's main corridor, and the replacement of one of the town's most blighted mobile home neighborhoods with new Green-certified low-income housing.

Reduce government regulations that smother American business
Mark will work to get government out of the way of our economy. One of his top priorities will be to reduce government regulations that are smothering American businesses.
He will also work to promote a streamlined tax code which will reduce the burden on families and corporations, which will encourage economic growth.
In addition, he will work to put an end to wasteful spending and get the national debt back under control. Our ballooning debt is hazardous to our economy and to our national security, and the spending spree must come to an end.
Mark will support a constitutional amendment requiring our national budget to be balanced.

Scrap the Federal Reserve
Haugh and D'Annunzio are the first Libertarian candidates for US Senate to appear on a primary ballot in North Carolina. They agree on dramatic cutbacks in government reach, strong Second Amendment rights, staying out of the Russia-Ukraine imbroglio,
repealing ObamaCare, and scrapping Common Core curriculum standards, the Patriot Act, and the Federal Reserve. But Haugh and D'Annunzio hold different views on abortion, legalizing drugs, the scope of US military action, and immigration controls.
