‘RAC the vote’

Midterm Position Paper by Joey Racano

Sept. 20th, 2018

1. Climate Change: Climate change is real, it’s happening now and occurring all around us, and accelerating at a break-neck pace. I consider the warming of our planet to be the paramount issue facing us today. Long term solutions won’t matter unless somebody has the fortitude to enact short term action. These include a switch to all-electric cars, trucks, trains, planes and military/construction equipment powered via home and business rooftop solar arrays. If it isn’t sunny where you live, we will send you electricity via our already existing power grid.

2. Military Budget: I have always disagreed with the idea of having to fight two wars simultaneously. All wars are questionable, but fighting two at a time makes you a trouble maker. The United States doesn’t have a military budget per se’; rather we have a runaway military budget. This budget siphons from much needed social, medical and educational programs. I propose cutting the military budget from 700 billion dollars every 6 months to 700 million dollars every 12 months. This can also offset growing storm costs which are sure to continue escalating.

3. Judge Kavanaugh, the two-party system and the Supreme Court of the United States: Lifetime appointments are too weighty to consist of jurists selected by a single President with a political agenda and ideology. Therefore, I propose all judges be chosen on the merits of their actions and opinions from the lower court cases they have presided on. Political activists need not apply.

Recently, the democratic party shunned the candidate of choice by rigging the game against Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 democratic primary. This caused a cascading catastrophe, a giant snowball that is still rolling and growing, and goodness knows where we and our republic will be in 20 years.

Like many Americans, I am concerned. Much as the Trump administration is attempting to fire and pardon their way out of coming prison sentences, the democratic party has escaped their 2016 primary malfeasance by virtue of their being nothing more than a ‘club’; yes, the Democratic Party is just a private club and so answerable to no one! A private club that chooses a candidate for public office! This must change, along with ‘Citizens United’, corporate funding of elections, revolving-door politics from private industry to public office and back to private industry lobbyists.

In conclusion, I invite all interested folks to send me your questions if I have missed issues important to you, and I thank you all for your activism. We can save the world!

With much hope for the future,

Students Take it Lying Down

Arm the Students

The leaders work for the breeders
The army works for the smarmy
The Navy ain’t gonna save me
The National Guard will come down hard

Kids look up your world is dying
Time to fight and stop the crying
You’re so caught up in getting laid
You’re not aware you’re being played

The Air Force is a force for chemtrails
Mass graves swallow conservationists entrails
Absent is a gentile discourse
To stand and fight your only recourse

Forests leveled Constitution beveled
Bill of Rights once great disheveled
Politics is no solution when you’re drowning in pollution
Learn what revolution means:demand your own AR-15’s
