Statement: After a career in clinical medicine, I am now practicing
political medicine, running for President to help heal our ailing nation. In this historic moment, people are standing
up like we haven't seen for generations, calling for an America and a world
that works for us all. We face unprecedented crises that need transformational
solutions that put people, planet and peace over profit. We must break the
stranglehold of billionaires and their parties that have thrown us under the
We the people have the power to end unemployment,
poverty, and rampant inequality; to liberate a generation trapped in predatory
student debt; create a welcoming path to citizenship; and end racism in
policing and beyond.
We can create a Green New Deal establishing 20 million
living wage jobs that provide 100% clean renewable energy by 2030 - reviving
the economy, halting climate change, and making wars for oil obsolete. We can
create an improved Medicare for All system, public higher education as a right,
and save trillions ending corporate welfare, catastrophic wars, and tax favors
for the wealthy. We can protect women's rights, Indigenous and LGBT people, our
civil liberties and the Internet. And
create a foreign policy based on international law and human rights.
My running mate, Ajamu Baraka, is a human rights
defender whose experience spans four decades of domestic and international
education and activism. He is a veteran grassroots
organizer whose roots are in the Black Liberation Movement and anti-apartheid
and Central American solidarity struggles.
It's time to vote for what we believe, not against what
we fear. To reject the lesser evil and fight for the greater good, like our
lives depend on it. Because they do.
