As an Independent, as you may know, this campaign will also require a strong and organized grassroots movement for a representative government of the people, by the people and for the people.
I have already spoken with many of you, have carefully listened to your concerns, fears and expectations. I am eager to work with you and your friends. Committed volunteers are needed to share our grassroots movement for a representative government of the people, by the people and for the people for keeping families together, smaller class sizes for our schools, environmental protection for food security, renewable energy, genuine election reform by removing money from politics and so much more.
I also know as a veteran inner-city educator that universal education is a human rights issue. We have to eliminate student debt once and for all. All Californians deserve quality healthcare regardless of income. Universal healthcare is an investment in our human capital, and a healthier community is a more productive workforce for our economy.
Furthermore, I propose a controlled, safe, Christian amnesty pathway to citizenship for our undocumented daughters, sons, mothers and fathers living in California. We don't have an immigration problem; we have a human rights opportunity to show our better angles as believers in a higher calling. We are all Californians. It’s time for our former DACA recipients to have an honest pathway to legal residency and eventually Unites States citizenship.
As your next California Governor, I will lead the legislation in California and Congress on IRS tax reform to address tax evasion, and offshore tax havens. I am a proud supporter of our ICIJ and the Offshore Leaks Database. I will pledge to remain faithful to our Federal Constitution by working hard to protect and expand our First Amendment, Free Press Clause and Free Flow of Information Act.
I will say and do what is best for California and America when neither the Democrat or Republican party establishments will not. Such as the former NSA employee and whistle-blower Edward Snowden. I have and will continue to advocate that Edward Snowden is offered full immunity in return for full testimony. We in California have the most number of elected members of our United States Congress than any other state. I will work hard with our Congressional members to make an Edward Snowden plea deal a reality.
You might ask what one person can do? A lot, as a volunteer you can contact voters via social media, e-mail or telephone to arrange a meet-and-greet, besides canvassing door-to-door, to let voters know about our election. As you can imagine, I cannot do this alone. Both Republican and Democrat establishments do not want an Independent candidate in a debate asking and answering the difficult questions like SB 400 (state government pension obligations), funding for schools and more. That is why I am inviting Californians who want our government to return to what it originally was meant to be - a representative form of government for ordinary citizens like you and me.
Join our Independent movement and help make a real difference for California and America. Our democracy needs your voice more than ever to ask the hard questions and demand answers. We are not here to ask other people for their hard-earned money. We will not ever ask people for money that career politicians always do, that have done so much harm to our democracy, intentionally or unintentionally.
I am and always have been a self-funded Independent candidate. I will not accept money, directly or indirectly, from superPACs, lobbyists, banks, unions, or foreign governments. I am running for California Governor with my money so why can’t the other candidates do the same? Matter of fact, I am running a campaign that involves the entire geographical area of California; why can’t our other candidates running for elected offices like city council and Congress say no to outside money from superPACs, lobbyists, banks, unions, or foreign governments like I do?
I have family and friends that are Democrat and Republican. I have never belonged to the Republican nor Democrat political establishments. I had challenged both the Republican and Democrat establishments as an Independent candidate, when I knew and experienced injustices, and felt the clear and present danger to our families, democracy, national security, environment, and economy. We are proud to have volunteers that are from many backgrounds, faiths, and professions. We have volunteers that are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, and many others. It's time to put California first and not a political party, superPAC, lobbyist, bank, union, or a foreign government interest.
Be the change you want to be, be different, vote Independent! Thank you in advance for your encouragement and support. I look forward to hearing from you. As a volunteer, you will learn about policy making (legislation, domestic and foreign affairs), journalism (press releases, proofreading, etc.) and technology (web design, social media, etc.).
Thank you in advance for your encouragement and support. I look forward to hearing from you. Be the change you want to be. Be diferent. Vote Independent!
