My Bid For Governor

I am announcing my bid for the Governorship New Jersey . I am running an advocate for real change. My agenda has two sides. One for social change, and one for political change.The issue of Social change must be implemented and there must be allowance for it. Here in New Jersey, along with many communities, even in a global sense, A majority of people public policy that would Further the combat against poverty and social inequality. Many times the preferences of ordinary citizens are ignored for the sake in demands of powerful elements such as special interest groups, powerful investors, corporations, major investors and the affluent. Those people do not mind the high degree of inequality. The remedies of societies problems are possible. But frequently fought off with right wing mythology which states we will create more bureaucracies, smaller government is good, and Utopianism. The chief purpose of government is to pursue policies that benefit all citizens. Even Republican Abraham Lincoln supported the notion of a "Government For The People". These must include the fight against poverty and economic inequality. In fact these policies are efficient, effective, and freedom enhancing, rather than wasteful or freedom reducing. Social policy often meets Right Wing moral platitudes against those who need assistance or are suffering and defines them as the undeserved and burden to society. I call for a Political system of Compassion and open mindedness, rather than one of disdain and ignorance.We need to address those who labor, as the are the most important segment of society, since work defines most peoples lives.No more should the worker, nor those who contribute to society have unjust laws against them and be made to suffer the consequences of oppression. My campaign is all about "Labor and The People". I am running as a member of the Socialist Party USA. I am not a Marxist, nor Communist. As many who know, New Zealand, Canada, and Scandinavia are Democratic Socialist States or have had them, they are not neutral. All socialists should are acquainted with being business-minded and union-minded. Opposing capitalism does not mean opposing business or trade; we are not advocates of returning the world to a regressive state, we are advocates of advancing the human condition. That requires knowing the terrain in which modern are fought on behalf of the worker and society for a truer Democracy.The second part of my campaign is in Support of the Coalition for Free and Open Elections. Meaning I may run as a Socialist-but I support the Alternate Party movement and wish other would also-making a choice to have representation from anyone else then The Democrats or Republicans. I am running for the benefit of the Reform Party, The Greens, Natural Law, or any party which is in existence. In Europe there are ten parties on the ballot-and voting is done on Saturday. It is also treated as a National Holiday. These Countries have a 98% voter turn out. Instead of the 40% we have here.The Mythology of stealing votes, and more parties are hurtful are the cries of the two party duopoly who wish to maintain power. We saw what a fiasco the two party system has been in the last Presidential election and throughout the years. In a real Democracy people have what is called FREEDOM OF CHOICE.In a Democratic society people have the right to exchange ideas and have free and open exchange ideologies, and make choices based upon them.The real vote counts in November. I Hope you will vote for me.
