We need a revolution. A revolution needs revolutionary change. These ideas are just that.
Global Warming is a Crisis
Climate change caused by global warming could be the greatest threat to the planet. We must find alternative forms of energy other fossil fuels if we are to survive. The Green New Deal is just one of the ways we find a solution.
Single-payer, in particular Medicare-for-all, are essential to bringing to an end a healthcare system that leaves millions of Americans to die or go bankrupt
End Gun Violence
There are too many guns in too many hands. And it's devastating our communities.
Racism, Sexism, LGBTQ, and Religious discrimination must be stopped
None of us can be free when some of us our not. Fighting discrimination is vital if we are to survive as a just society.
Everyone who wants to work should be able to do so. And they should be able live on the wages they are paid. Real Wages have not gone up in decades. It's time to change that.
Stop Police Brutality
Too many of our citizens, especially African-Americans, are being brutalized by law enforcement.
End the Mass Incarceration State
Too many of our citizens are being arrested and thrown in jail for non-violent crimes. Or they are falsely arrested and accused. Then they are stuck in prison--even if innocent--and are unable to pay for bail. Then they are stuck with paying for a bond even when they are not charged.
Protect Abortion Rights
Currently the right of woman to seek an abortion is under attack by the Trump administration, Republicans in general. and the Supreme Court
Free College Education
The survival of this country, and the planet, will depend on how many of our citizens get a college education. It is also a major part of the remedy in ending income inequality and class division. If only the rich can afford education then that means the 99 percent are left inferior choices in life. If means only democracy itself is endangered. An education populace is a free one.
End the Military Industrial Complex
We are currently fighting in seven wars. We have military bases in 70 countries. The U.S. Spends more than 1/3 of the world's military budget totals. That means our budget is about the size of the next 7 largest countries put together. That total is unsustainable.
