Campaign themes

The following issues were listed on Olson's campaign website. For a full list of campaign themes, .

  • Pro-Life: Justin Olson is blessed to be the father of eight wonderful children and to have had the opportunity to bear witness to the wonder and joy that accompanies the birth of a child. He is committed to working towards a day when each and every unborn child is guaranteed the unalienable right to life.
  • Government Spending and the National Debt: Justin Olson is a principled economic conservative who will tirelessly fight to reduce government spending and stop the borrowing. Unlike most politicians, Justin’s commitment to smaller government and a balanced budget are more than just talk.
  • Immigration: Justin Olson is committed to real border security and strong enforcement of our immigration laws. He understands that when the politicians choose to turn a blind eye towards illegal immigration, the situation only gets worse.
  • Reforming Washington: Justin Olson is running for Congress because, like you, he understands that Washington is broken. Instead of fighting for the interests of their constituents, far too many politicians are more interested in cozying up to the lobbyists, unions, and big spending special interests that seek to control our government.
  • Taxes: Justin Olson is committed to lowering the burden that taxes place on our families and businesses.
