As a leading member of the national slate of LaRouche Democrats, I am personally committed to never compromising on fundamental principles. Popular opinion, or 'more practical considerations' will never substitute for truth and what is right in my decision making. I along with the members of the slate, are running on national, and not regional or sectional interest. When someone takes an oath to hold federal office, they commit himself or herself to the interest of the nation, not a party or a local interest.
The complete failure of all presidential candidates, Obama and the Republicans, means our nation has no competent leadership in a time of existential crisis. Our slate is not running for President, but is running a Presidential policy. We commit ourselves to fighting as a real president would, for the future of this great nation.
I come from a lower middle class family. In 2011, I married the love of my life, Ian Overton, a friend and fellow organizer.
Together we are teaching young people about the science and art of real political statecraft, from J.S. Bach, to Johannes Kepler, and our American intellectual tradition. Prior to my bids for U.S. Congress, I ran a statewide campaign for Chair of the Democratic Party in 2006, with the theme "Out of the Bushes, Into the Future!"
When I am not running my own political campaigns for office, I work as a full time volunteer with the LaRouche Political Action Committee, continuing to push against these same problems and fight for these same solutions.

The first, immediate action we must take, even before Obama is fully removed from office, is the immediate reinstatement of Franklin Roosevelt's original 1933 Glass-Steagall Act. This has been an ongoing policy of mine for the past four years.
Glass-Steagall makes it illegal to bailout, or bail-in, Wall Street investments with the commercial assets of depositors. Reinstating this law will reveal that upwards of 98% of the world's money is really just worthless paper, and cause it to disappear, as if waking up from a nightmare.
Let Wall Street go bankrupt! Send the white collar criminals to jail! The American people shall be protected! We will not cut our own throats to protect thieves and scoundrels. Texas must redeem itself from Sen. Phil

I fully support the widespread revival of a Classical, truly human culture, one which cherishes and nurtures the creative spark of reason inherent in every individual human being through tasteful art, scientific discovery, and statecraft.
To get directly at the crux of the matter: human beings are not merely animals; but we are superior to animals; we are uniquely endowed by our Creator with the power to understand and wield universally true principles, also known as natural laws. Every single human mind and soul is born equipped with the powers of reason and agapic love, which compel us to understand and thereby improve, both ourselves and the physical universe around us. As such, we are capable of knowing things to be true or false, beyond

Now is the time to speak the truth, frankly and boldly. Unless the Democratic Party follows my lead, and immediately and publicly breaks with Wall Street, and crushes its fascist genocidal program, this nation will soon be lost. Obama can, and must be removed, immediately. Wall Street can, and must be crushed. I am rallying the American people to join me in forming an alliance of real producers -farmers, industrialists, scientists, and more- who will reassert the real American tradition of progress, not seen for 50 years, since the leadership of a real Democratic President, John F. Kennedy.

Once the design phase is completed and construction begins, it is feasible with an accelerated timetable and the application of new technologies, that pieces of the system could begin coming online only years after it begins, and the main trunk line completed in 10 to 15 years.
The runoff of the rivers shown above in Alaska, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and British Columbia is a portion of the total annual runoff flowing into the Arctic and Pacific. Adding the runoff of several Alaskan rivers, including the Nushagak, Kenai, Alsek, and Kusokwim, along with other coastal runoff of British Columbia, brings the total from 752 to approximately 1,300 MAFY of annual runoff for the region. Diverting approximately 20% of this runoff through

The entire, global monetary empire of Wall Street is hopelessly bankrupt and in the process of near term collapse. Immediate, emergency measures must be taken to protect the sovereign welfare of the United States citizenry, and protect the value of our currency from collapsing with Wall Street. These specific actions are:
Conduct a Glass-Steagall type audit of all banks chartered in the United States, including the Federal Reserve. Only bank divisions engaging in commercial deposits shall be protected and insured. All others, including Wall Street and the Federal Reserve, will be allowed to fail when shown to be bankrupt.
Using its authority under Art. I, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. Congress shall issue bills of credit legally

I am committed to bringing controlled thermonuclear fusion energy into use as fast as possible. Our nation needs fusion, both a source of electricity, and as a strategically crucial objective for the future progress of our nation. Such a revolutionary transformation as this could never be squeezed out of taxes. Our only recourse is to use the American Credit System to create a capital budget, outside of the year to year fiscal budget, specifically for bringing thermonuclear fusion technology online, as fast as possible. Specific technological goals include:
Controlled thermonuclear power systems by 2020. President Kennedy planned that fully 50% of our nation's energy should be from atomic power by 1970. The failure to fund and achieve this

Much of the rest of the world is ready and willing to cooperate with the USA on planetary defense, especially Russia. Such an existentially vital mission as this could never be squeezed out of taxes. Our only recourse is to use our American System of Constitutional Credit, newly freed from the stranglehold of a bankrupted Wall Street empire, to create a capital budget, outside of the year to year fiscal budget, specifically for bringing the requisite technologies online, as fast as possible.
