Isn’t it time to try Democracy?

I believe humankind faces a choice.

Will the malignant forces who profit from global destruction use each new crisis to tighten their stranglehold on our planet?

Or can we rise up to defend the common good -- allow the acceleration in productivity and transparency of the information revolution to unleash a new age of abundance and collective responsibility.

Isn’t it time...

… Congress cared about people?

… to end the blank check for war?

… to deal with climate change?

… for universal healthcare?

… to stand up to corporate predators?

… to hold drug makers accountable?

… to take money out of campaigns?

… for everyone to have food, housing, and the freedom to pursue a productive and happy life?

I wish to provide that choice to Vermont in the Democratic Primary on August 14

Vermont Edition

Incumbent U.S. Congressman Peter Welch has two challengers in the Democratic primary this election season. One of them is Ben Mitchell of Westminster West. He’s a longtime educator and self-identified democratic socialist. He’s made other runs for state and national office in the past as a Liberty Union candidate.

Memorial for my father.

On March 16th, 2010, Civil Unions passed the VT. House by a vote of 76-69, setting the stage for all that followed; he described this as one of the most magnificent moments of his life. To be able to serve the country that had welcomed him as an equal, and then to participate in extending that welcome, to enact laws that hold us to the truth of our values -- Mark Mitchell died halfway through his third term in the House; he died serving his country with honor and integrity.
