Founded The Human Rights Party in 2012 to
give candidates and individual voters a new alternative that may be more
in line with their personal beliefs and convictions.
Statement: To ensure
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, both health care and education must be recognized as basic human rights for all Americans. The only cost effective way to provide
universal health care
is by providing a single national
insurance program, including removal of the responsibility from both employers
and employees (private and public sectors,
including education). Exclusion of private
insurance and advertising companies (and the IRS) from
health care would save the American
people trillions of dollars in unnecessary costs during the 21st century. Severing
the current mandatory
linkage between health care insurance and employment would create a major new and sustainable stimulus for job creation and growth of the American economy. For education, we need to recognize the essential role of post secondary training as part of our definition of basic education. Tuition fees in state college
systems must be drastically reduced
or eliminated. The only tax policy change
needed would be to begin taxing capital gains at the same percentage rates as earned
or ordinary income.
