Why I am Running
Our nation has lost its moral compass and we are divided more than any time in half a century.
Washington is dysfunctional. The wealthiest 1% put 97% of the money into elections, and blind Congress to the needs of working families and threats to the planet. Our civilization is a force of nature which threatens our security. This is the ultimate taxation without representation on future generations. The Founding Fathers feared any faction overcoming our checks and balances. For me, silence is betrayal. We must restore the American Dream and protect families- not corporate interests. The wealthy must pay their fair share of taxes so that we can responsibly invest in America. We must rebuild our infrastructure, invest in early childhood education, make college affordable, lead the word in sustainable energy, make the minimum wage a living wage, pass Medicare for All, develop reasonable gun control laws and refocus the war on drugs. I see this as common sense for the common good.
