Peter Lumaj decided to run for the United States Senate because he is concerned about the future of Connecticut and of our country. He sees the United States quickly moving towards socialism. Because of his experience and exposure to other governments not receptive to American style democracy, he understands the importance of maintaining a free society where its citizens are guaranteed sovereign rights as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as stated in the Declaration of Independence.
Lumaj disagrees with the “liberal elite” belief that America’s best days are behind us. Their view that the government is the solution to our problems is ludicrous. Clearly, the government is not the solution; it is the problem. The United States of America and the American people are exceptional and, therefore, our best days are still ahead of us… as long as the government is kept within its constitutional limits.
