Why I’m Running

We have a problem in America, and it goes beyond Donald Trump. Don’t get me wrong, Donald Trump is a traitor to the United States. He is a crook whose only option for financing his corrupt and failing business empire was through Russian criminals. He became so indebted to them that he allowed them to run a campaign of disinformation and outright election fraud to aid him in becoming their puppet. The Russian criminals have succeeded. They have a wholly-owned puppet occupying the most powerful office in the world. Yet, Donald trump is not the worst of our problems. That dubious honor belongs entirely to the Republicans in Congress who allowed this to occur and enable its continuation.

Trump only holds office with the willing acceptance of Republicans.

The Democratic Party at its heart– its liberal, progressive, caring heart– stands for three things:

Fair Play, Compassion, and the Common Good.

Democrats must be aggressive and unwavering in their opposition. We must be as as fierce in telling the truth as the Republicans have been in lying. We must quit playing with the pretense of compromise. We cannot compromise with criminals, we cannot compromise with rule-breakers, and we cannot compromise with those without human compassion.

Better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference.
