“I am running for the United States Senate here in Arizona because as a citizen I am gravely concerned with the lack of direction, lack of principles and lack of citizen representation in our country. I am in a unique position which enables me to shift my business interests into the hands of others focusing my energies on giving others like me a voice I feel we do not have. I see too few leaders in Washington standing up for the people. The people deserve leaders who will be direct with where they stand on issues and what they plan to do. After that, the leaders must be accountable to their promises. I will be direct, I will be honest and I will be accountable to the people for my promises.”
Former Arizona State Legislator Lori Klein is endorsing Mr. Meluskey for United States Senate in 2016
“I am honored to be one of the first Arizonans endorsing a run for U.S. Senate by Alex Meluskey. Alex is the State Director of Arizonans for Fair Tax, which I started back in 2000. Alex is a man of integrity, vision and embraces our founder’s views of individual liberty, limited government and economic opportunity. Alex will be a breath of fresh air in Washington, and will be a citizen legislator who will represent us well. I think we are all tired of pandering politicians with their fingers in the wind making disastrous policies limiting our freedoms. Alex is all about solutions and standing up for what is right. He is a real Reagan conservative who is not for sale. He will fight for our Republican Platform values in Washington, and that is what we need—real men with guts and courage to speak the truth, standing for the principles that made this country great, allowing us to live the American Dream.”
Mr. Meluskey’s Concerns for Arizona
OUR GOVERNMENTS FAILURE TO SERVE OUR VETERANS
The men and women who sacrifice their lives to protect us deserve nothing less than our best work ensuring they are given the best care when they come back to civilian life. We can do that, so therefore we must.
THE EVER EXPANDING ROLE AND SIZE OF GOVERNMENT
Our Federal government is here to protect us from foreign threats at home and abroad, and also to punish those that seek to do us harm. After this, the government should get out of our way so we can self-govern our actions within the rule of law.
THE STRUGGLES OF SMALL BUSINESS & AMERICAN WORKERS
Bad Regulations, bad laws and a bad international corporate competitiveness rating create an environment hostile to the great American Dream.
FAILURE OF CONSERVATIVES REACHING OUT TO MINORITY COMMUNITIES
It is “We the People”, not “Some of the People”. One of the greatest strengths of our great Nation is our diversity. All good people coming to the table guaranteeing all voices are heard. There is no reason for those who believe in the Founder’s Principles, to not come to the table offering intelligent discussion bettering our nation.
VIABLE TAX REFORM THAT ELIMINATES THE INTERNAL REVERNUE SERVICE
Simply put, our Tax-Code is a monster and, it needs to be eliminated so the people do not have to suffer through the immoral nightmare of the IRS and the income tax.
BORDER SECURITY THAT MAKES SENSE
We are neglecting the safety of all American citizens when we ignore our border problems. This is unconstitutional and immoral.
IMIGRATION POLICY THAT STREAMLINES THE PROCESS
Our immigration policy is flawed. Amnesty is not the answer because it encourages those that break the law, and also enslaves them into the system without answering the problem. Coupled with a strong border policy, we can then proceed to fix the flawed immigration policy, not unlike the policies we had in place 100 years ago.
THE SECOND AMENDMENT
The right of self-preservation and self-protection is inherent in all persons, communities, and societies, which is why I will defend the indispensable provisions of our second amendment. Shall not infringe means, shall not infringe.
Judeo-Christian values, as articulated in the Declaration of Independence, are the foundation of our republic. I will defend the defenseless from conception to natural death and oppose any attempt to redefine marriage.
