Isn’t it time to try Democracy?

I believe humankind faces a choice.

Will the malignant forces who profit from global destruction use each new crisis to tighten their stranglehold on our planet?

Or can we rise up to defend the common good -- allow the acceleration in productivity and transparency of the information revolution to unleash a new age of abundance and collective responsibility.

Isn’t it time...

… Congress cared about people?

… to end the blank check for war?

… to deal with climate change?

… for universal healthcare?

… to stand up to corporate predators?

… to hold drug makers accountable?

… to take money out of campaigns?

Is it possible…

… to question the “free market?”

… to prioritize the general welfare?

… for public banking to serve communities?

… to invest in renewable energy.

… for everyone to have medical care, food, housing, and the freedom to pursue a productive and happy life?

… for Vermont to elect a Representative committed to transformative change?

I wish to provide that choice to Vermont in the Democratic Primary on August 14

Ben Mitchell talks about the F-35

Driving to Montpelier to turn in the signatures to get on the ballot, I recorded some thoughts on my phone. I was officially the first candidate on the ballot for the August 14th Democratic Primary.

Why Isn’t That Murder?

The pictures are chilling and unambiguous. Israeli snipers, shooting from safely defended, distant positions have been killing and maiming unarmed Palestinian demonstrators for weeks now. The snipers shoot from behind a barbed wire border fence into throngs of men, women, and children. As of May 14, Israelis had killed 55 people while suffering zero casualties themselves.

US immigration agents boarding busses in violation of the law and arresting people in violation of the US Constitution, that’s a description of fascism.

To be a decent nation within the norms of common decency and the intent of the US Constitution, we must resist and reject bigotry is all its forms.
