Arizona Candidate LeAnn Hull challenges the status quo in politics

The state of Arizona remains in the news headlines and fresh in the minds of many Americans. When the dust of the controversy settles, the political curtain will open and a spotlight will shine to reveal a candidate unlike any other.

Traditionally, politics is the dirty business, where corporate interests, money and power essentially control the candidate whose election they bankrolled. This relationship that ties politicians to their benefactors as marionettes didn’t sit well with LeAnn Hull. This mother of four (two of her children are actively serving in the military) decided that the time was right for Americans to take back the government.

LeAnn Hull is bravely running without fundraising. She is planning to restore the government to what it was originally intended to be: a government of the people, for the people, by the people.

Hull describes herself as a “common sense Republican.” She said her campaign will mainly focus on the economy and jobs creation.

LeAnn said, “I am running because I have had enough. I know first-hand what the lack of leadership has cost Arizona businesses. We’ve tried doing it with lawyers, professional politicians, special interest groups and lobbyists and ended up with a broken budget and a country in the midst of a financial crisis that has negatively impacted every one of us. It’s time we tried something different.”

LeAnn Hull and her husband have owned a construction company for twenty six years. In the last year that business has been turned upside down. The challenges faced by the Hull family are similar to the challenges most Americans are facing. “As a small business owner I have balanced a budget and created real jobs. We have to quit spending more than we have, start helping small business owners create real jobs, and leave a country our children will be proud to inherit, not a bankrupt shadow of what we could have been,” Hull added.

Instead of the traditional fundraising she detests, LeAnn Hull promises to run an aggressive grassroots campaign. “Our objective will be to get our message to as many people as we can. Meeting with groups, knocking on doors and making sure we "listen" to the people of District 3 will be a key component in our campaign. We will make sure that we are letting them know our position on their concerns. We’ll Tweet and e-mail, be all over Facebook and offer inter-active blogs. This will be a people’s campaign,” Hull said.

LeAnn Hull is keeping her promises. On July 13, 2009 candidate Hull was exchanging ideas with her constituents at the popular event, Austin’s Who Is Who In Arizona (organized by Austin Feldman).

LeAnn Hull didn’t skip a beat and also mixed and mingled with politicians, local business owners on July 15, 2009 at the famous Politics on the Rocks, organized by Charles Jensen.

There, LeAnn Hull had a conversation with Governor Jan Brewer about the current state of affairs. Brewer encouraged LeAnn Hull to continue running for political office and wished her much success, in spite of the stiff competition.

I know there are many candidates, some with much higher name recognition than I have,” Hull said. “But name, ID and past political experience aren’t nearly enough to meet the challenges we now face.” As a Candidate for Congress, LeAnn Hull is dedicated to preserving liberty and constitutional rights for all.US Senator John McCain opines he has a great record to stand on. However, Senator McCain’s office stated the Senator was unavailable when asked for an on-camera interview to discuss his co-authoring a bill on March 4, 2010 entitled, “S. 3081: Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010” where Mr. Mccain (For himself, Mr. Lieberman, Mr. Inhofe, Mr. Brown Of Massachusetts, Mr. Wicker, Mr. Chambliss, Mr. Lemieux, Mr. Sessions, and Mr. Vitter) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary advocating stating in relevant part: "An individual, including a citizen of the United States, determined to be an unprivileged enemy… may be detained without criminal charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners in which the individual has engaged, or which the individual has purposely and materially supported, consistent with the law of war and any authorization for the use of military force provided by Congress pertaining to such hostilities."

S.3081 would eliminate several Constitutional protections, allowing Government to arbitrarily pick up Americans on mere suspicion - with no probable cause, Miranda warnings, charges or the right to be represented by an attorney. Any political opinions and statements that criticize U.S. Government could be used by Authorities to deem you a “hostile Enemy Belligerent”, thereby justifying your arrest and indefinite detention. S.3081 is so broadly written that any protesters or Tea partiers might be arrested and detained just for participating in demonstrations. Government can justify that by charging that attending demonstrations could be considered to have materially supported anti-government hostilities.

Full language of the bill appears to do away with the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh Amendments of the constitution, in addition to Statute 42 (1983) violations that correspond with infringements on the rights of US citizens who make complaints and report government corruption. Senators Lieberman, Vitter, Chambliss co-authored this bill to unconstitutionally detain US citizens indefinitely, deny them Miranda rights, constitutional rights, fair and equal protection under the law under the guise of national security issues where any US citizen would be prohibited from speaking against policies or the government.

If this draconian bill was to pass, Americans could be detained indefinitely for protesting against the unlawful use of taxpayers’ dollars. One of the examples would be the Department of Justice launching lawsuits against the State of Arizona at the expense of American taxpayers. Concurrently, various state Attorney Generals rally to support and defend Arizona’s efforts to defend American borders not simply from illegal aliens, but more importantly from terrorist organizations, drug smugglers, sex trade traffickers, illegal arms sales, criminals and border incursions by the Mexican military.

LeAnn Hul acknowledged that she is aware of numerous challenges facing Arizona and America as a whole today. The petite blonde beauty speaks quietly and confidently about changes for the people, the State of Arizona and the United States. Hull stated, “I am ready to lead my country in a new and healthy direction.” Those who have met this rising star of Arizona politics believe that this is yet another promise that LeAnn Hul is going to keep.
