Why is Alex
Miller running for US Senate?
Our legislative process is presided over by our representatives;
competent, qualified, judicious, reasoned, charismatic and attractive,
in short, all of the things we demand from the conservators of our
constitution and our civil society. In November we will
choose another qualified, competent, judicious, reasoned representative
to shoulder the responsibility of carefully crafting the legislation
that we live by.
There exist some parable or allegory that will enlighten even the most
obdurately obtuse believers in a government Santa Claus. I am
running to find it and tell it.
Our current representative in the office of US Senator may as well have
said “If elected to represent you, I will covet the wealth of others
beyond all else. I will adopt the thinking of wealthy eastern
elitists, and work to remake American society in a way that enshrines
their financial and social advantages into law for all time. I will do
this in the hope they will grant me and mine first access to the table
scraps of real wealth and power. I will pass legislation they
provide me without reading it or considering the effect on or the
wishes of the people I represent. I will indulge my ego by pretending
to belong to the imperial class, and play power broker in Washington
and use the currency of my state’s interests to purchase offerings of
even more power and advantage for those whose wealth and power I so
love. I will embrace“ that devious, sinister, evil influence

to the teachings of my religion. I will forsake my humanity
love for my fellow man in pursuit of such favors from the ultra-wealthy
as I enrich them further." But, I am running to stop that.
For me running is: Fighting the evil that our representative has
embraced; telling the emperor that he is naked before he forces us to
buy from the same con men; awakening my neighbors from the thrall of
greed; spreading the truth that you cannot vote yourself rich, you can
only vote yourself the chance to be rich, or vote for no chance at all
What we are being told is essentially “The upper middle class won the
lottery and they don’t deserve the prize of 200 million
wealthy government elite should take all the winnings and divide it
among all the people, not just the ticket buyers. That way, everyone
continue to buy tickets and to bring us all wealth. And, the government
elite won’t keep
anymore for themselves than they give us." I am running to
promote fairness. If you buy a ticket, by working and helping your
employer, or by starting a business and helping your customers solve a
problem, and you are successful and 'win', you deserve to keep the

you can never become a respected, prosperous person by stealing.
When a thief steals from a working person more than once, the
working person may find it profitalbe to stop the stealing. How many
thieves are industrious and educated enough to outcompete an honest
person for that person's earnings? Thieves may one day find that it is
easier to get a job or start their own business.
Freedom and thievery are incompatible in society. If you are
thief, you are dependant upon the inattention, kindness and generosity
of others, which you must abuse. By stealing, you divert the
attention of honest folk from their pursuit of happiness and profit as
well converting their generosity to suspicion and mistrust.
result is that with fewer kind and trusting people your profession
becomes harder, and society becomes meaner. I am running for
kinder, more generous society.
The manner of theft is irrelevant. Whether by guile or gun
results are the same. If you choose to be a thief, you are
limited by the amount of wealth your target has accumulated and your
success endangered by your target's increasing vigilance. You

of all that any of us can truly own, our lives and our freedom to
