From 1994-2000 Howard Kaloogian had served the people of California as
a member of the California State Assembly. Kaloogian, a Republican has
been a leading activist in establishing fiscal responsibility, gaining our
individual freedoms, and upholding conservative values. Howard is a
conservative political leader who is a successful businessman, educator,
and attorney. He has established national recognition by managing current
events which face our country and state. The Honorable Howard Kaloogian
has lowered the income tax in the state and is fighting to develop a
California Flat Tax. Selected as Assistant Republican Leader, he
campaigned and gained support across America as the leader of the Defend
Reagan Committee. Supporters swarmed the offices of CBS and their sponsors
to prohibit an anti-Reagan Production that was later banned from
television. As the Chairman of the Recall Gray Davis Committee, Kaloogian
was able to terminate the Democratic Governor. The position was then
filled by the Republicans and the successful achievement can be associated
to the dedication of the Assemblyman. Howard has addressed economic issues
and the negative effects of over regulation as a radio and documentary host
as well as a convention speaker. As a candidate for the upcoming Senate
election Howard Kaloogian understands what California needs to flourish.
Kaloogian opposes President Bush’s amnesty proposal on immigration.
He says, “It is not right to allow others to cut in line ahead of others
who are obeying our laws.” In the 1986 amnesty the problem of immigration
was promised to be solved. At the time there were only 3 million illegal
immigrants but current estimates are now at about 13 million. Kaloogian is
working for real immigration reforms to deserving individuals. He realizes
the desire to flock to our country and embraces it. However, he knows this
process must be done legally and through hard work it can be done. Taking
this standpoint can fix our current unworkable amnesty which solves
nothing. Under his proposal jobs would be available to Americans rather
than illegal immigrants. Furthermore it is unsound to reward illegal
individuals that have the opportunity to apply legally as others have done.
Candidate Kaloogian is proposing a real-time access for law enforcement on
every alien seeking admission into the country. Democratic Senator Barbara
Boxer has done nothing to address this crisis. Republican Candidate Bill
Jones supports temporary work visas, which of course would only take jobs
away from Californians. Also until the country implements a real-time
system probably half of the immigrants would manage to stay in the country
after their visa expired.
Howard Kaloogian is fighting hard to turn our budget deficit into a
surplus once again. By controlling spending through a tough spending limit
on discretionary spending this is very accomplishable. According to his
plan if the President will line out excessive spending in congressional
appropriation bills we can produce a growing economy. Kaloogian has
proposed the reinstitution of the Gann limit in California which has been
destroyed. Howard feels that above all we need a Constitutional Amendment
to minimize the excessive spending in congressional appropriation bills.
Candidate Toni Casey wants to bring $58 billion dollars to California to
support our infrastructure. How she plans on accomplishing that goal is
unknown because she offers no plan, just a large figure of money.
While Senator Barbara Boxer defends the horrible procedure of
abortion, Candidate Kaloogian is meeting the needs of women who feel they
have no other choice. Howard will address the needs of pregnant and
parenting women by drawing a blueprint to make positive changes. By
engaging leaders in all aspects of society this can be done. Society’s
failure to help women has to change before more women are emotionally
scared after an abortion. Studies show that women after an abortion have a
higher risk of cervical, breast, and uterine cancer. To not address these
health concerns as Barbara Boxer continues to do is an injustice to women.
Howard believes “women deserve something better.” By informing women about
the impact of abortion and discovering the root causes of so many abortions
will aid in giving women alternatives. Challenger Bill Jones, during the
March primary tried to hide from the issue by saying “Women in California
are concerned about safe streets, national defense and keeping our borders
secure.” By hiding from the issue, the needs of women are ignored and the
problem only worsening.
Another issue concerning our country in which Candidate Kaloogian has
addressed continuously is our National defense. Howard feels military pay
continues to lag behind civilian jobs in the private sector. To defend our
American interests Howard understands the need to keep a modernized
military. He feels strongly that to achieve this Congress must invested
more money in special operations and reconnaissance. Having served four
years in the U.S. Marines Corps elite force reconnaissance community I
observed first hand this need Howard is addressing.Lack of advanced
technological communication equipment and electronic warfare assets has
lowered our defense capabilities. Candidate Kaloogian understands the need
for more money to help increase our capabilities and provide competitive
wages to retain members of the military.
An issue that Republican Contenders Bill Jones, Toni Casey and
Rosario Marin have neglected to speak out about is there position
concerning marriage. Candidate Kaloogian has not been so timid and has
stated that he is opposed to same sex marriages. Howard feels, just as the
President does that the Constitution needs to be amended to specifically
state that marriage is between a man and women. With a current threat,
predominantly in the state of California of same sex marriages, Howard
Kaloogian is taking a stand to end the debate over the acceptance over such
Candidates in all areas of politics during their campaign often
promise tax cuts to stimulate the economy. The problem lies in the
candidate’s lack of a plan to accomplish the cuts. Howard Kaloogian will
not fall victim to this because he has created a tax system that he says
“Is fair, simple, efficient, and understandable.” Howard is going to
create a loophole-free flat tax. The outcome of this would be an increase
in federal revenue and the growth of our economy. Supporting a candidate
that has a solid plan to aide in the advancement of California is vital.
Other candidates have the same desire as Howard but offer very difficult
implementations to accomplish this goal. This fair tax system Candidate
Kaloogian is proposing is both simple and fair.
While all of Howard’s opponents are admirable individuals they lack
in creating the systems necessary for growth in California. If you want an
individual to help President Bush fight to improve our economy by lowering
taxes and creating jobs then you can find that individual in Howard
Kaloogian. With a proven track record in accomplishing his goals, Howard
is dedicated to providing the highest level of service to Californians.
Howard Kaloogian is knowledgeable and a proven leader who can advance
California to a level no other candidate can. His vision is not only one
that he speaks about, but one that will be implemented when in office. If
you want to observe California experience positive changes then vote for
Howard Kaloogian on Election Day.
