The popular notions of economic development must
We have developed a society based on materialist
greed and
wasteful consumerism. That must change. We need to
build a society that embraces a sustainable future,
one that
balances our ecological needs with our financial

Communities are recklessly
being destroyed by rampant development. This
development has brought too many strip malls, Mc Mansions, etc and not
enough economic development which produces
quality, living wage jobs.

Cooperatives are businesses owned by employees.
They are run on a democratic basis and fulfill
economic and social needs.

Our future must contain a greater degree of
cooperative enterprise. We must develop and build
cooperatives so people can have quality jobs that
sustain them.

The advantages of cooperatives are that they are
democratic, self sufficient, equal, give equity,
provide a living wage, and are ecologically sound.

There are many cooperatives that can be developed.
Worker-owned supermarkets, energy companies,
phone companies, social needs co-ops, etc.

Co-ops should be developed in place of welfare,
they can alleviate poverty, re-develop
communities, and sustain the natural environment.

This would give people the ability to control their
own work. Employees would have control of the means
of production. It would also eliminate the mindless
mind numbing jobs entrenched in Taylorism and
workfare programs which pay slave wages.

We need a welfare system that will give people
freedom, and not manage poverty. We can change
so every person can live a happy, fulfilling life.

One of the best systems of co-op enterprise is the
Mondragon system of Spain's Basque region. Co-ops
are not a dream, we have real-world examples to
guide us.

We have co-ops in America that provide inexpensive
food, and were the first in product labeling and
consumer conciousness in providing quality products.

We need a better system of work environment. In
Europe and Canada they have:

1. Six weeks paid vacation.
2. National Health Care.
3. Social programs that work.
4. A Living Wage.
5. Free Continued College and University.
6. Ecological Development

By cutting back on government waste and corporate
welfare programs we could literally afford all of
this for our nation and share with developing

Transforming our attitudes away from the coldness of
todays thinking, we could develop a society
where we develop more compassionate, charitable
mentality. Where the national wealth is shared and
put an end to the torture of poverty . When I am in
Washington, I will fight for the right for everyone
fulfill their aspirations.

I am a candidate because I wish to transform

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.
