Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in a government that works together for the greater good of all people. Our Founding Fathers set up our Constitution to provide for us to form a more perfect union, not to divide us. Sadly, political parties, campaign finance laws, and lobbyists have made it a government by the corporations for the corporations. It's time that the people demand that our democracy is restored and bring the power back to the people. 

Likewise, we need to invest in our future, which means making sure we make laws that protect our environment. We need to provide for our young by giving every citizen an equal opportunity to education without mounds of debt. We need healthcare that will no bankrupt our elderly and sick. 

We need to end chronic homelessness and provide more workforce housing for the people that make up all the systems that we count on.

Lastly, we need to restore hope, pride and a cooperative spirit for every American.
