Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Establecer límites en cuanto a los periodos y evitar que haya políticos de carrera.
  • Transparencia y sencillez en el gobierno. ¡Todos deben saber lo que pasa en el congreso y entenderlo!
  • Atención al veterano. Necesitamos dejar de producir veteranos interviniendo menos en el extranjero, pero dar atención a nuestros veteranos es una prioridad fundamental.

Biografía

Alexander E Appleby was born in Gilroy Ca, but raised in the Central Valley where his upbringing directly influenced where he would practice his life's work. As a youth in Northern California, Alex experienced poverty, and extreme financial hardships. At one pivotal moment, as he scrounged for discarded food; 7yr old Alex made a personal vow to never live like this again. Alex had his first job at 14; due to family circumstances he became emancipated at the age of 16 and immediately began supporting himself with 2 jobs. Alex showed what hard work and dedication looks like by running his own business as a minor and graduating from high school simultaneously in order to serve his country in the United States Army.

Private First Class Appleby excelled up through the ranks until being given the honor of a combat promotion to Sergeant in Iraq at age 20. Through two enlistments, five deployments and fifteen different countries, Alex received 14 awards and decorations to compliment his honorable discharge. Among other notable awards, SGT Appleby was acknowledged as an “expert” Small-arms Marksman, and a Longarms “Sharpshooter”. His love for Country has extended itself beyond his time served, as he expresses fervently, to this day, his personal tagline - Honored to serve.

The most recent chapter in Alex’s life began when he took the passion that developed in the military with him to a “confrontational politics” meeting locally in Stockton. The exposure was a call to action for Alex. He took the education, experience and networking connections he had made as a financial advisor and began to plan for his own campaign. Alex believes that the most fundamental changes are started from the ground up, and made a bold move to run for the congressional seat within his very own district. The unprecedented call to action bolstered the support of the Libertarian Party, as well as his professional work associates. Alex remains grounded to his roots in the community, through building personal connections at his church, and constant business related outreach. 

Alex believes that we can find real, personal, and financial freedom by taking things back to the principled framework that the founding fathers provided for us in the Constitution. Just like the dedicated soldier who enlisted as a minor into the armed forces, Alex would be honored to fight for you in the U.S. Congress. Among others, his platforms biggest push is going to be for reform of the Veteran Affairs system, and to establish a three term limit on incumbents currently occupying Congressional seats.

Once again, I am honored to serve.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (4)

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why.
Respuesta de Alex Appleby:

We need a simple process for legal immigration. Health check, background check, done.

The political climate in Washington, D.C. has been extremely partisan in recent years. In that kind of atmosphere, what would you do to get things done while in office?
Respuesta de Alex Appleby:

This is why I think we are ready for 3rd party Representatives to rise up more than ever before! As a Libertarian I believe in the best of both sides, let's have small governemnt and be fiscally responsible, but let's also fight for individual freedom and be socially accepting. I can be the fresh perspective to work with everyone and get the job done. I represent the people, because I am one of the people. 

What, if anything, does the U.S. need to do in order to address national security and terrorism? Please explain your answer in detail.
Respuesta de Alex Appleby:

I think we need to have more of our soldiers home and not be trying to police the world. We have created many of the problems we have with excessive foriegn intervention and nation building. Keep our military trained, but keep them home unless they are REALLY needed. We could talk HOURS about this topic!

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?
Respuesta de Alex Appleby:

We need more water storage as well as water desalination technology

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

First off, I’d like to say that my goal is to create an environment where people of all kinds are responsible for themselves, and no one is forced to compromise their values for the benefit of others. I believe that respecting individual rights is necessary for prosperity, and true freedom. That’s simply the only way for us to prosper.

As a result, I will defend any person’s right to participate in any peaceful and honest activity, and I welcome the diversity that this act produces. The world I would like to build is one that allows people the unhindered ability to follow their own dreams to fruition. 

I stand for Less Government and More Freedom!
