While we’re still waiting for Arnold Schwarzenegger to put out a platform, Gallagher has done it. According to his official website, his philosophy is:

The problem with politics is that it is too lucrative. If you vote for something you get paid. If you don’t vote for something you still get paid. Anybody in their right mind would go into it. What we need is people who are not of their right mind to get things done!

He has a point.

Also, he’s a family values kinda guy:

If you are against gay sex, then let gay people get married,
that kills the sex everytime!

His 14-point platform is a mix of conservatism, populism, and pandering.
