Why don’t we have the very basics? Affordable housing, Healthcare for ALL, Living wages, Debt-free Education, True Democracy… There is no excuse BUT there is a reason! The billionaires and their corporations have bought out both parties and are running OUR country. Raise your expectations, Use your power, Apply pressure, Demand more … Vote for Green Socialism and the Green Party, we are more than an alternative, we are the imperative!

I received many different reactions from people when they first heard I had won the June primary write-in campaign and would be facing Barbara Lee in November. As you can imagine, some people were shocked that anyone would challenge the most progressive congressperson in Washington. Others, however, immediately started sharing with me their everyday struggles and challenges

System Change Not Climate Change On a personal level, it seems I have always been reluctant to characterize myself as anything ending in “ist”.

Serve the People Not Corporations How do you get the government to serve people and not corporations? One way is to change the laws.

Green New Deal

A platform of integrated policies Why was there a New Deal in the Great Depression of the 1930s and none in the Great Recession that started in 2008, the year Obama was elected president? In the 1930s there were huge organizations that were on the side of regular people. They applied pressure on Franklin Roosevelt

Tax the Rich and End the Wars There are solutions to the problems we face, and they often cost money. Right up front, however, we need to say real solutions donotalways cost more.

We Won the Write-in! Let’s have a debate!

Tags : 

Our democracy is based on GOTV, Getting Out The Vote, and we did it! Most of the grand total of 5,239 write-in votes went to cartoon characters, dogs, or others who did not do the paperwork. Of those who did become “qualified” write-in candidates, I received 832 votes, followed by a Republican with 178 votes,
