Position Papers
Bring Congress Home to Work
At the very center of my platform, is a smart, high tech solution to a very serious problem that plagues our Congress. The problem of lobbyist's and special interest's influence over our elected officials in Washington D.C... A problem, which makes solving all other problems a losing battle, together, we can change that.

Bring Congress Home to work is a telecommuting solution for our times; one which I believe would produce the kind of shift we need to balance our political system.

Civil Liberties
The Spirit of Occupy is all about civil liberties, it is the spirit that celebrates our most vital first amendment rights, to convene and redress our grievances with our government; it is a real life test to the health and well being of our of our most basic founding principles which are so vital to our democracy.

The spirit of Occupy also means taking part in the grand tradition of our great nation, to stand up when it is the right thing to do.
