GOING GREEN

15493811_10209306972845290_6297777138775196797_o.jpg

When asked why don't I run as a Democrat again in a Democratic stronghold like Los Angeles' Congressional District 34, I tell them because the people of Los Angeles are tired of establishment Politics by the Democrats and Republicans. 

I WAS a Democrat and even ran as a Democrat for Congress in the 2016 Primary as a Write-in and garnered 1,177 write-in votes with 2 months of campaigning. Now things are different... OUR eyes are opened. 

What we fear will happen, HAS ALREADY HAPPENED under Democratic leadership. 

From record level deportations of 2.5+ million undocumented immigrants, to more war and regime change (Syria & Libya), drone strikes, mass incarceration, privatization of Healthcare, Wall Street deregulation, disastrous free trade agreements like NAFTA, weakened unions by not passing the Employee Free Choice Act, not fighting for universal healthcare through single payer, receiving billions of dollars from corporations and Wall Street who influence legislation, destroying our planet with fossil fuels and natural gas, to not taking a stance on #NODAPL. The list could go on.

We tried to give the party a chance when we saw an actual public servant like Bernie Sanders join the party. But the Democratic Party shut him down AND our countless hours of blood, sweat, tears, and hard-earned $27 donations. 

Bernie Sanders left the Democratic Party and is an Independent, but his values are truly "Democratic - for the people". That is why I joined the Green Party, because their values and their platform align more with Bernie Sanders and are more "Democratic" than the Democratic Party itself. 

These are the Green Party's Ten Key Values:

1. Grassroots Democracy
2. Social Justice And Equal Opportunity
3. Ecological Wisdom
4. Non-Violence
5. Decentralization
6. Community-Based Economics
7. Feminism And Gender Equity
8. Respect For Diversity
9. Personal And Global Responsibility
10. Future Focus And Sustainability

We are an eco-socialist party. We believe that healthcare, education, and housing are human rights. We believe in criminal justice reform, a welcoming pathway to citizenship, and grassroots democracy in our political process. We believe in protecting our environment over profit and that we should transition to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030. Most importantly, we don't receive money from corporate interests. 

This Summer 2018, we're hoping to earn your support and your vote in California's 34th Congressional District of Los Angeles. We have the opportunity to break the status quo, the 2-party system that has controlled our lives since day 1. 

Please join in, and let's continue the Political Revolution and BREAK the status quo, NOT SHAKE UP. 

Our campaign will put the most vulnerable people FIRST: the working class, the disappearing middle class, the poor, the homeless community, immigrants, people of color, the senior citizens, the disabled, and LGBTQ Community because when millions of people come together from all backgrounds, we can accomplish anything!

    When you realize how great your platform is without poisoning people with drugs…you will then gain all the advantages of education and a clean conscience…until then the reverse is true.

    There is nothing smart or romantic about “dope”…especially when you consider how it is used by other illicit narcotics syndicates to traffick in black market slavery…“laced” addiction…& rape…no campaign, however pure it’s intentions, is worth the loss of democratic political power’s future, for a momentary collapse under “cartel socialist” rule…totalitarian vice is not exused for the excesses of it’s regime change over free thought and individual decision…your marijuana policy will be the “choke chain” to control you like a dog “before & after” gaining power to make you powerless… just like your “primos”…lost in quicksand….

    Man, you’ve inspired me. I too want to run for Congress but I have no idea on how to do it. I just moved to the Palmdale area and I feel that I can bring about real change, realistic and innovative ideas. If you have any contact information that would be great, and godspeed with your success.

    Love what you are doing! I feel the same and cannot support the DNC. Nothing but Goldman-Sachs with a rainbow flag. I live in LA but not in the 34th. I can’t vote for you but can spread the word!
