|1. Peace. The two parties had two wars to advance their political ends and lost both of them, as all responsible authorities predicted they would. The promoters of war in government and in the mass media must be repudiated, so that peace can be restored.
2. Government accountability. Government now operates as a racketeering enterprise, with the two parties complicit in corruption. Corrupt government officials must be identified, removed, and prosecuted.
3. Corporate accountability. Government has quit regulating the big, anti-national corporations that control public policy, resulting in the widespread abuse of workers, poor quality goods, mass export of jobs, declines in public health and personal quality of life, environmental pollution, the concentration of wealth in a few hands, and a failing economy. It is urgent that Americans undertake the reregulation of corporate conduct.
4. Constitutional rehabilitation. The two parties have trashed the Bill of Rights, undermined the rule of law, and effectively repealed all checks and balances on executive power. The people must restore the Constitution.
|Why Vote For Stephen Fournier:|
|I'm a troublemaker and whistleblower. The only government body I served on, the Hartford Board of Education--whose corrupt activities I opposed at every turn--was so compromised that it had to be dissolved by an act of the Connecticut General Assembly, an unprecedented move that was partly attributable to my short tenure. Cleaning up Congress will be a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. |
