It all started when...
I became a Bernie Sanders National Delegate from Iowa who was inspired to be involved for the first time in my life politically. The corruption that occured at the Democratic National Convention was disheartening, but we had another option.
Jill Stein and the Green Party opposed the corruption and collusion that the Democratic Party threw at Bernie and us delegates. She gave us an honest option to believe in again.
I am running a Grassroots campaign inspired by these two advocates.
We must end the war on drugs by decriminalizing them and start treating addiction as an illness, not a crime.
We must stop funding endless war and go back to the belief that violence must be the last resort only. People, Planet, and Peace over profit.
We must stop funding terrorism, but first we must recognize that we are.
We need Single Payer Healthcare.
We need tuition free Higher Education.
We need to raise the minimum wage to a livable wage of at least fifteen dollars an hour. In Iowa we are struggling in some counties to increase the minimum wage even today.
We need to get big money out of politics and overturn citizens united. I refuse to take superPAC money.
We need to strive for a Green Energy source and as leaders in alternative energy, Iowans need to move away from fossil fuels.
I would also like to push against some of the stigma surrounding out LGBTQIA community. The shooting in Orlando was very personal to me, as a homosexual man. I would like to lift the ban on homosexual men giving blood as there is no evidence to back up the prejudice belief.
As Iowans, we are not directly impacted by fracking on our own land, but those in Northern Iowa are moving closer to a ban on frac sand mining. This is something statewide we need to support and make law.
If you believe, like Bernie, Jill, and myself, in these ideals than please consider supporting our campaign.
