“Wherever the truth is injured, defend it. You are there on that spot within hearing of that word, within sight of that action, as a Witness, to the end that you should speak for it.” Ralph Waldo Emerson, March 28, 1834
America has more problems than it deserves, more solutions than it applies, and more truth than it defends.
We are standing on the threshold of a new awakening in the public consciousness about the need for dramatic change. You know our economic system is rigged. You know our political system is rigged. You know we are facing the global catastrophe of climate change. But we don’t have to stand by helplessly. We don’t have to suffer economically, tolerate candidate bribery or live in a world without a sustainable future. We don’t have to live in poverty anymore; without education, without health care and without hope. As Alfred, Lord Tennyson once wrote, “Come my friends, Tis not too late to seek a newer world.” We can create the world anew and that is what this campaign is all about.
