Filosofía política

CJ believes that we need a government that doesn't take money from corporations. CJ believes that our current government in Washington is broken and that we need to get in new progressive candidates that refuse corporate money. He believes that our government should be serving the people. Government should be there to serve their people and to make their lives easier. We shouldn't be using taxpayer dollars to continually be at war with other nations. Instead we must provide our country with Medicare for All, Education, Safety, Basic Human Rights, Jobs, Economic Rights, Infrastructure, and a Sustainable Planet. CJ believes we can achieve all this.
