THERE ARE SOLUTIONS

From Single Payer to Article the First, We Are Claiming Our Democracy.

My Platform in an Extremely Small Nutshell

Although I’m running as a progressive, and with the progressive party, I’m essentially what’s often referred to as a “Sanders Democrat”.  My platform is the 2016 Bernie Sanders platform with a slight emphasis on representation and a more constitutional (from both sides of the spectrum in my opinion) position on gun control.

Universal Health Care

From the Preamble: To provide for the common welfare. It's one of the many things we came together to do. Just like roads, bridges, sewer and clean water, it's a basic need and for a modern society, it's a human right. So long as the dollar has more value than the people's health in the eyes of those in charge, the people will never thrive.

Article The First

The effect of freezing the size of the US House at 435 members and the fact that the population has grown causes each citizens vote and access to their representative to diminish. The argument is that in order for our system of government to function correctly there needs to be an adequate number of representatives for the citizens.

Responsible Use Of Military Force

We are indeed powerful. And yet with that power comes huge waste and untold suffering. How much good can be done when we have transparency, integrity and empowered usage of our arsenal? The responsible use of our military is the core solution, as well as the core problem, in many of our failing systems.

Sustainability

Sustainability is a mindset. Applicable in every moment at every level of life and society. It’s how I chew my food, and how to breathe when I type. It’s the compost system, the car I’d prefer to drive and the place I choose to work. It’s also the core principle in solving the climate crisis as well as economic stability, again at every level.

Currently, 63% of our electorate are in favor of this legislation. When one considers the consensus we would have if corporately owned media would cover the issue accurately, this would be a non-partisan issue. @RepDerekKilmer must co-sponsor HR-676.

#NationalAvacadoDay

Here's the testimony I just gave before @KCCouncil on the hypocrisy of how we address homelessness:

Someone asked me why I said the GDP being high doesn’t mean jack squat.

Well.

Here you go.

80% of American workers live check to check and we are supposed to laud CEOs for record profits and bonuses they give themselves while we struggle to make ends meet? No thanks. https://t.co/ja5sEFu424
