Campaign themes


Alas' campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Liberty: "America was the first nation founded on the principle of natural individual rights. We all have equal rights which cannot be taken away. It is this foundation of personal freedom and individual liberty that created the most prosperous and powerful nation in history."
  • Jobs: "Jobs are not created by government politicians. The government can only destroy jobs. Productive jobs are created by a free market. A healthy, growing business climate is the best creator of good jobs. High taxes and unnecessary regulation combine to place a high burden on our job creators."
  • Immigration: "Hard-working immigrants from around the world strengthen our country, enrich our culture, and raise the standard of living for American citizens. We should celebrate our immigrant-friendly traditions as a country, and work to build a legal immigration system that reflects our values, respects our security interests, and serves our economic needs."
