As an independent candidate for President of the United States, my solutions for reducing and preventing violence are the heart of my campaign platform – Fix Government, Build Peace
When I read about trade deals, I wonder: Will international corporations always get the better bargain? Do American citizens have a constitutional right to protect our air, land, water and other environmental and cultural resources? Where is our democracy?
On March 30, 2015, I announced that I am an independent candidate for President of the United States of America. My primary reasons for making this decision are discussed here.
I believe in the overwhelming power of face-to-face dialog. In terms of strategy and actions, building peace requires fixing government. In terms of lifelong transformation, changing hearts and minds only occurs through face-to-face dialog.
My presidential platform combines fixing our broken government and building peace at home and around the world. I believe we have to reduce and prevent violence here at home before we can make much progress building world peace.
Turn anger and hatred to solutions through ceasefires, face-to-face dialog, community justice and working together on shared projects that solve shared problems
What we measure is what we get. Measure what matters; focus on outcomes not paperwork; and reward genuine achievement not the number of pages in a report. If we can’t get the numbers right we will never understand why 45 million Americans live in poverty
The American people and the federal government are not having the kinds of conversations that matter. I don’t mean screaming at each other or watching people on television
We have no mechanisms to support partnerships across agencies. Indeed, we have laws and policies that prevent cooperation even for programs where different agencies work together in the field
In Conversations with America, every department and agency will re-establish their true purpose and priorities. I do not mean listening sessions. I mean the American public will drive how we define the new purpose and priorities of our government
