Peter “Pete” Andrew McMillan is running as a Libertarian candidate for Arizona State Representative – District 12 [formerly District 18]

and asks for your support to place him on the ballot for the Primary Election to be held on
August 02, 2022.  

Note: AZ Secretary of State accepts District 18 electronic ballot petition; E-Qual for Legislative candidate petition signature collection in the 2020 district [District 18] will remain open until Maricopa county begins importing the 2022 redistricting map [District 12] into the voter registration system, which is expected to begin around March 5, 2022. 

Pete is a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer who served with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration for twenty-four years. He is also a retired Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army Reserve with twenty-eight (28) years of Honorable service including a tour of duty in Iraq. His education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from The Citadel – The Military College of South Carolina (1989), and, a Jurist Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law (1995).  Life experience and education forged a man who is a stalwart defender of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.  

The turmoil of the 2020 election requires government accountability and the honest return to “Government of the People, By the People, For the People.” Libertarians are practical. We know that we can’t make the world perfect. But, it can be better. The Libertarian Party is the only political party that truly respects your rights as unique and competent individuals. We want a responsible system of government that citizens can trust and by which all people are FREE to choose what they want from life – that lets us live, work, play and dream our own way….together.  

Peter Andrew McMillan’s Legislative agenda: 

  • Amendment to the Arizona State Constitution declaring it a sanctuary for the Bill of Rights in particular the 1st and 2nd Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. 

  • Balanced Budget Amendment to the Arizona State Constitution. Citizens balance their budgets; so must the government. Build and maintain public infrastructure to promote and sustain the livelihood of all citizens. 

  • Amend the Arizona State Constitution to require a Proposition voted on and approved by citizens to raise taxes; the Arizona State legislature can lower taxes, but, never raise them.  

  • Abolition of State Income tax in favor of Fair Tax Amendment to the Arizona State Constitution: a single rate tax at the point of purchase on all new goods and services that will eliminate all state income taxes (including alternative minimum tax, corporate income taxes and capital gains taxes) payroll taxes, gift taxes and estate taxes, replacing them with a single consumption tax on retail sales that will increase savings and investment, ease tax compliance, increase economic growth, increase incentives for interstate and international businesses to locate in Arizona and increase Arizona's competitiveness in trade, provide transparency for funding the state government, increase civil liberties, benefit the environment and effectively tax illegal activity. It's your money; you earned it. And you are free to spend it or save it as you see fit.

  • Blue sky anti-fraud voting law requiring Constitutional voter ID, pre-election voter record audits and county election officials to provide unrestricted access to observers at polling places and county election bureaus, as well as, as a prohibition on the use of non-USA manufactured electronic voting machines and artificial intelligence software in any voting related matter and specifically the tabulation of votes.  

  • Amend the Arizona State Constitution’s term limit: Eight (08) years total and out – regardless of breaks, respite or service in different Houses (Senate and House of Representatives).

  • Pledge that as a member of the Arizona state legislature I will cosponsor, vote for, and defend the resolution applying for an Article V convention for the sole purpose of enacting term limits on U.S. Congress.

  • Pledge that as a member of the Arizona state legislature I will cosponsor, vote for, and defend the resolution applying for an Article V convention for the sole purpose of enacting a balanced budget on U.S. Congress.

  • Energy reform which provides property owners the freedom and incentive to install natural environment friendly solar and other alternative power systems with battery back up and EMP protection which are self-sufficient and entirely off the utility grid or dual use systems which allow owners to sell excess energy to the utility or operate off-grid in the event of emergency.  Energy independence promotes Civil Defense. Property owners who install alternative power systems with battery back up and EMP protection will receive Fair Tax credits.

  • Reasonable healthcare regulation at the State (not Federal) level to ensure affordable access to medical care and prescription medicine based on fair market place competition not predatory/monopolistic pricing. The Tenth (10th) Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights for for a reason; the Founding Fathers had wisdom: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” 

  • Public education: stay focused on classic education – the four (04) R’s: Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Individual Responsibility. Reform school boards in favor of parental oversight. Adopt Junior High School (7th thru 9th grade) to address overcrowded high schools and age differences. Identify and redistrict mismanaged school districts to ensure quality and economy of scale. Good pay for teachers, uniform per capita student investment and uniform State (not Federal) curriculum will promote e-QUALITY which is the key to developing educated citizens who understand, respect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness by a Government of the People, by the People and for the People in God We Trust. Parents who exercise their freedom to choose home schooling or private schools will receive Fair Tax credits. 

  • Pro-Life from conception until natural death. Respect for Life is fundamental to a peaceful society: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. As citizens, we have a duty to aspire to the Golden Rule: compassion, understanding and support for mothers in crisis, the unborn, the handicapped, the elderly and the infirm.  

  • Legal immigration: E Pluribus Unum (out of many, one) – the motto of the United States of America. The National goal is to build a stronger Union. All People seeking to become American citizens deserve an opportunity to properly identify themselves, follow a reasonable immigration process and pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. And to the Republic for which it stands. One nation, under God. Indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

  • Secure international border. There is no United States of America (or any other Nation for that matter) without defined secure borders. We the People have the Right to be secure in our Life, our Liberty, our Property and our Pursuit of Happiness. We are a Nation. National defense requires We the People know who enters our Land and their intentions; that is the essence of legal immigration.  

  • Prohibition on government mandates on vaccines and face masks. Arizona is one of the fifty (50) United States of America: the Land of Free and the Home of the Brave. The government does not own your body. People are FREE to wear masks – or – not wear masks. People are FREE to take vaccines – or – not take vaccines. The government does not have the authority to abuse executive orders (which only apply to government agencies) and licensing to force private businesses to do its bidding in violation of Strict Scrutiny which requires the legislature to pass laws that further a compelling government interest that are narrowly tailored to achieve that interest. Our police officers enforce the laws enacted by the legislature – not executive orders by the governor; as public servants their first duty is to protect and serve We the People: our Life, our Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

  • Demilitarize & End Qualified Immunity for Police; End Civil Forfeiture and Asset Seizure. I support (including funding) reasonable law enforcement. However, post 9/11 America has seen the proliferation of militarized / intimidating law enforcement (military uniforms, infantry weapons, armored vehicles and electronic surveillance)  which is contrary to a Free People. Benjamin Franklin said, “a Republic if you can keep it.” That requires ALL citizens to abide by the U.S. Constitution. Police officers are citizens certified / licensed by We the People to Protect and Serve. The Police are public servants who should be respected, properly trained, equipped and funded but not feared as they are equal before the law: no special treatment. The Police should not be granted special protections against being sued or prosecuted for violating people’s Constitutional Rights..

  • Home Economics, Driver Education and Gun Safety made part of High School curriculum. Knowledge is power. A responsible society teaches civics including proper nutrition and financial responsibility, as well as, the proper use of motor vehicles (by AZ DMV certified instructors) and firearms (by AZ National Guard instructors) so citizens can be healthy, fiscally sound and responsibly exercise their license to drive and Right to keep and bear arms. And to be clear: I stand against Explicit Sex Education to prepubescent children and Critical Race Theory.
