WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO ME
Non-Human Animal Rights
I will seek, through legislation and the introduction of an existing proposed amendment that I recently sponsored, the end of the slaughter and mutilation of non-human animals and grant legal person-hood to all sentient beings.
Democracy for America
I will introduce an existing proposed amendment, that I recently sponsored, for vote by Congress to replace the electoral college with pure democratic elections.
I will defend our air, land, and water resources against further contamination and depletion through a focused effort to preserve existing ecosystems, executive sponsoring legislation that will protect the remaining species who inhabit such ecosystems, and, where possible, revitalize such ecosystems.
Genetically Modified Organisms
I will seek, through legislation, a data driven approach to exposing the malignancies of certain inhumane, scientifically indefensible, and economically unsound practices, to ban 'genetic modification' of animals, products, by-products, and food.
I will leverage the executive office to introduce legislation that will end the non-emergency-based use of toxic, hazardous, and economically untenable fuels and energy production methods including, but not limited to, "fossil" fuels and nuclear fission.
I will enhance our national security by eliminating systems and practices that create profit motives to engage in war; tactically execute a peaceful, skillful, and resolute foreign policy strategy that encourages collaboration with influential human beings of foreign nations who are aligned and agree with humane values.
I will leverage the constitution, the executive office, and new legislation to eliminate and end inhumane and fiscally unsound criminal investigations, trials, sentencings, and incarceration systems and practices, including, but not be limited to:
Repeal of "Three Strikes" laws and other inhumane mandatory sentencing laws;
Repeal of the "Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act", "Ag-Gag" laws, and other laws and policies designed to suppress speech, expressive conduct, and political dissent;
Elimination of the death penalty; and
Elimination of systems and practices that create profit motives to incarcerate people or keep them incarcerated.
I will deliver a data-driven approach to a balanced Federal budget, with a focus on a decrease in military spending, as well as corporate taxation reform.
I will seek legislation, through the introduction of an existing proposed amendment that I recently sponsored, that will ensure unilateral equality under federal, state, and territorial law, including, but not be limited to sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, and marriage equality.
