VOTING is the mechanism by which we legitimize the existence of our government. The systems we build and use to handle our elections must be transparent and honest. [ideas]

EARTH is the only home we have, this planet and its environment, a fragile balance of life we find ourselves the stewards of. At a basic level, if we want clean air and water, we need to think hard about the amount of pollution we currently and historically have put into both and stop as best we can.

Fellow Americans, our foreign policy as a nation should support Democracy worldwide as a means by which we ensure liberty for all. If we want to be a pillar of democratic light on this planet, we must act like it. [ideas]

[policy ideas]
