Let’s Make America America Again!

Welcome to Aziz for America!

This campaign is about you, not me – about We, the people, and the ideal that government should be Of, For, and By that people. There is only one people – not red and blue, not liberal and conservative, not white and black. If we will it, we are Indivisible. We are One Nation.

America is Great. That is because America is an idea – it is the Proposition that certain truths are self-evident:

  1. all men and women are created equal
  2. they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights
  3. among the inalienable rights are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

What is America for? What is the purpose of our Nation? To create One Nation of citizens who believe in the Propositions above. How do we implement such a nation? By the Constitution, which was established with these specific goals in mind:

  1. establish Justice
  2. insure domestic tranquility
  3. provide for the common defense
  4. promote the general welfare
  5. secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity

The Constitution exists to achieve these goals. In achieving them, we attain our more perfect Union.

Today, we have fallen from these goals.

Where is the Justice, when People are shot for being the wrong color, or crushed by debt?

Where is the domestic tranquility, when People are fed fake news and outrage to turn them against each other?

Where is the common defense, when People are victims of drug epidemics or face killers inspired by violent extremist ideologies?

Where is the general welfare, when People can’t pay for medical treatment, or drink polluted water?

These are what we must regain, in order to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

These are what made America, and what we have lost.

America has never been perfect, hence it can always be made more perfect. We can make America, America, again. The first step is to understand who we are, and what America is.

Join me. We have a lot of work to do!
