I heard an interview with him today on NPR Seattle (KUOW) and I like what I heard. I went home and have been looking over his web site and have watched one of the videos and he sounds very progressive. He was a democrat but is fed up with the corporate dominance of both parties.
- The promotion of the public interest through the defeat of the systemic corruption that has caused massive failures in public policy.
- An immediate end to the on-going wars
- Essential health care coverage for all citizens
- Urgent international leadership by the U.S. to prevent against the most catastrophic consequences of climate disruption
- Adequate revenues to balance the budget through fair taxation
- Treatment of substance abuse as a public health
- Rather than criminal justice, issue
- Control of the Federal Reserve by the Treasury Department and Congress
- A balanced budget (or a surplus) except in times of war or major recession
- An end to the legal concept of corporate “personhood”
- A constitutional amendment to overrule Citizens United and to allow limits or prohibitions on the corrosive impact of money in our electoral system
- An end to the stranglehold on our government by the military-industrial complex
I'd suggest checking out the site, watch some videos, read his bio. Pretty damn progressive.
