AN AMERICA THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE AND UPHOLDS OUR VALUES
click to expand
+ STOPPING CRYBABY TRUMP
None of this can happen if we allow 4 more years of this madman destroying our democracy. As a comedian, Gleib has the best chance at stopping the Heckler-in-Chief. Cautious politicians won't get the job done, and the traitor will win again. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT???
+ WORKING TO CLOSE THE INCOME & WEALTH GAP
Fighting for a living wage and affordable housing for all. Because if you can't live on the money you make, then what is the damn point of working? Being able to live is pretty key. So is being able to save, but you can't with NO MONEY LEFT OVER! We will give middle and working class people a "Cost of Living Tax Refund" every month.
+ HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY
Every rich nation on earth can do it. It's time we protected our own. But it must be a combination of expanding medicare to those who can't afford insurance, while also keeping private health insurance alive.
+ NOT LETTING THE ROBOTS TAKE OVER
Fighting to protect American jobs from the onslaught of automation. Some jobs will be automated of course, but we cannot allow entire work forces to be eliminated. Call me crazy, but I value humans. Have you not seen every science fiction story ever? Letting the robots take over DOES NOT END WELL.
+ SAVING OUR ONE PLANET
Finally taking this dire issue seriously. Because we can't breathe on Mars. When the consensus of the scientists of the world say that we have just 12 years left to reverse course or DESTROY EARTH, I kinda feel like WE SHOULD LISTEN. Are Republicans not brave enough to step up to this fight? I thought you guys were supposed to be tough.
+ COMBINE WHITE COLLAR PRISONS & BLUE COLLAR PRISONS
Want to stop corporate crime? That’ll do it. White collar crime hurts millions of people, that's far worse than someone who just sold weed in their neighborhood. So why does the worse criminal get to go to a super chill country club jail? No more of that. Also we will end private prisons, because you shouldn't make money from incarcerating people. Choose a better business, bro.
+ FINALLY TAKING CARE OF OUR VETERANS
We gave them our word, and for us they risk their lives. I will make sure we honor them by finally funding the VA properly, and providing the care they deserve. It’s unacceptable this has not already been done.
+ MODERNIZING OUR SCHOOLS BECAUSE, UM, IT'S OUR CHILDREN, HELLO?
We have exponentially evolved yet our schools are still chalkboards and dusty textbooks. We will teach real life skills, financial literacy, and schools will have things called "the internet" and "computers".
+ TAKE BACK OUR DEMOCRACY
Outlawing gerrymandering, paper ballots only because EVERYTHING DIGITAL GETS HACKED EVERY FIVE MINUTES, ending the electoral college, and STOPPING FOREIGN INTERFERENCE (which for some reason is not of interest to our treasonous president.)
+ BIG MONEY OUT OF POLITICS
It's ridiculous how we have sold our government to the highest bidder. Big corporations dictate our policy. It's even insanely expensive to run for office and try and change it. But we will. No more revolving door. No more Citizens United. No more "Corporations are people" because, um, they are not. People are people. That's just basic understanding of words.
+ STUDENT LOAN BAILOUT
The big banks got bailed out, and they wronged us. Knowingly. Yet college graduates, our future, simply wanted an education. This advances our society. We will thank them by forgiving a majority of their debt.
+ GUNS ARE COOL, KIDS ARE BETTER
I will always support the second amendment. But that doesn't mean our children should fear being shot at school. School is annoying enough. We will register all gun sales, even private sales. It shouldn't be easier to get a gun license than a driver's license. Again, because obviously. We will have thorough background checks, fully analyzing both criminal history and mental health. You shouldn't be able to get a gun faster than you can get toilet paper on Amazon Prime. No more loopholes. Loopholes are easy to shoot through.
+ TREATING ALL HUMANS HUMANELY
We can keep our nation and streets safe AND treat all people with dignity. They are not mutually exclusive. Why would they be? Are we monsters? We will protect our borders AND those that come here seeking a better life will not be demonized. WE CAN DO BOTH. And if you were brought here as a child, and haven't, you know, broken laws, you will become a citizen. Because you are an American.
