I ran as an independent candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election cycle and I came in number 15! Many of you have asked what’s next. I am thinking about running for office again.
I am in favor of all forms of election reform: open primaries, non-partisan redistricting, term limits, public financing of elections, and overturning Citizens United.
Imagine four Presidential candidates in the United States of America supporting and advising each other in 2016! Imagine that partnership and our ability to see beyond personal goals toward a roadmap for achieving national goals
I am an independent candidate for President of the United States with a very specific platform: Transform Government and Build Peace. This means fix our broken government agency-by-agency and build peace here at home and around the world.
Ballot access for independents to get on state ballots in time for the next national or state or local election is backwards. The rules are completely different than running as a Democrat or Republican.
While still competing with each other as Presidential candidates, we agreed we would create a new alliance to inform Americans about credible and experienced independent Presidential candidates
I am honored and delighted that California’s Peace and Freedom Party has put my name forward to appear on the June 7 California Presidential Primary. The slate they sent forward to the California Secretary of State is all women!
That was an amazing week – historic I’d say! What would happen if the independent movement grew even stronger as the most credible Presidential candidates joined forces to spread the Independent and 3rd Party message?
Throughout the week, I had several private conversations as I decided which states to run as an individual independent candidate and where I would “actively seek the nomination of” specific third parties. I decided not to make these conversations public
I spent all week in Nevada talking with veterans, working to get on Presidential ballots, and starting to prepare for the January 28 Independent Presidential Debate in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
