ENGAGED DEMOCRACY

Engaged Democracy

I promise to faithfully promote the Green value of engaged democracy and decentralization of power to let citizens have more local impact in their neighborhoods and communities. Our country was founded on the principle of stripping power away from a small powerful few in far off capitals which disregarded their citizens pleas for fair representation. I will fearlessly fight corporate, government, media and partisan consolidation of power and decision-making away from the people, and will call for renewed efforts to promote antitrust regulation against corporate monopolies and the return of the airwaves to the people from corporate profiteering and information control schemes.
