The Governor outlines his platform for presidency - if, and only if, he were to run in 2016.
My platform would be simple:
- Rebuilding our country: focus on alternative energy sources, and fix our infrastructure.
- Getting out of the wars.
- Legalizing and ending the war on drugs.
- Get the money out of politics and work towards reforming campaign financing.
I would say if you are able to accomplish two out of those four issues, you would go down in history as a great president.
I follow the teachings of Major General Smedley Butler, who wrote:
“To summarize: Three steps must be taken to smash the war racket. 1. We must take the profit out of war. 2. We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to decide whether or not there should be war. 3. We must limit our military forces to home defense purposes.”
We have so much work to do here in the United States. I’m tired of seeing our resources being used abroad. Let the world handle their own problems, when it’s clear we have so many of our own. If we did that, we could fully implement all of Bernie Sanders’ propositions.
