DOUBLE LOUISIANA EXPORTS TO JAPAN

LIFT EMBARGO TO CUBA

“Within 2-6 months after being elected as your Senator, I will vigorously coordinate the lifting of the embargo to Cuba. This will create a $2-4 Billion/year immediate revenue to Louisiana Farmers & manufacturers ready to export to Cuba within 30-60 days. It will enable Louisiana to purchase organic produce from Cuba. a. It will also serve as Medical Research Collaboration that includes Cancer.”

Justice REFORM

“We need criminal justice REFORM for BOTH criminals AND police. We must create a Uniform Code of Police Justice (UCPJ), WHEREIN all police abide by the code contractually. This new code will specifically include, but not be limited to the Police departments. This new code will be similar to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), herein all military employees know the rules and regulations.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE
O+

CAMPAIGN CORRUPTION

“Since Corporations are considered PEOPLE, they should have the same campaign contribution limits as the AMERICAN PEOPLE have. They should only be allowed to contribute up to $2700 to any individual candidate or Political Action Committee (PACs). This is the first step to stop government corruption at the State and Federal Level. All donations should be disclosed and a matter of public record.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Income Inequality and Living wage

“I support EQUAL pay for EQUAL work for women and the includes a woman becoming the President of the United States as well as making sure the U.S. SUPREME COURT is composed of 5 women and 4 men so that all women receive a fair treatment when making decisions about women.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Minimum Wage

“It is my belief that in order to improve the quality of life and take Louisiana out of poverty, we must consider increasing the job market more construction and high tech jobs that can pay up to $15 per hour.”

NOT APPLICABLE
N/A

GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION

“The root of the problem with Louisiana Legislature and the U.S. Congress is very simple. 1. Politicians can hold office for as long as they live in many cases, and I propose a 12 year cap for all legislature positions at state and federal level. 2. If Corporations are PEOPLE then they should only be able to contribute up to $2700 to any candidate or to any Political Action Committee (PAC).”

Obamacare

“FIX OBAMACARE BY ELIMINATING MEDICAL & MEDICINE PRICE GAUGING like the EpiPen or mouth wash for blisters being sold at $2009.00 with a genetic over the counter at $7. Medical providers should inform patients of cost of treatment to them and to Medicare/Medicaid. Incorporate the Humana Small Business Healthcare Plan for business owners, employees and their children up to 26 years of age. ”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

LEGALIZING HEMP

“The industrialization of hemp is critical for more durable construction materials like HempCrete which can last more than 100 years and is as strong as concrete; This is the ideal solution to rebuild flooded homes by installing hempcrete on the walls and then stucco or tile which will save reconstruction in the event of another flood thus creating millions of jobs for a self-sustained economy!”

SUPPORT

INTERNATIONAL AID

“It is okay to lift third world nations out of poverty but to provide billions of dollars to Israel to provide free healthcare and education at the expense of millions of Americans without healthcare, hungry and homeless isn't smart. Reduce International Aid by 20%. Use funds instead to invest in relief to flood and disaster victims, and to provide food/shelter to starving and homeless AMERICANS.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Immigration & Deportation

“Within 90 days of becoming your next Senator, I will introduce a Bill for Comprehensive Immigration reform. However, we must identify all criminals and deport them ASAP. Additionally, we must enforce current laws and fine employers $500-$1000 1st. offense per employee. Those that have been in the United States over 5 years with clean records and paying taxes should receive work permits.”

Gun Control

“Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Gun sellers should check the buyer's records before selling a gun or assume responsibility for their crimes.”

STRONGLY OPPOSE

FOREIGN POLICY

“We should NEVER USE MILITARY force to prevent other governments from possessing a nuclear weapon and/or to steal their oil production. The Bush/Cheney Administration invaded Iraq to steal their oil and to enrich Halliburton Oil and we cannot continue that stupidity as Donald Trump has suggested to take over their oil again. It cost us the lives of more than 4,500 U.S. Soldiers & $3 Trillion +.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

FEMA GRANTS

“As your next Senator, I will seek up to $6 billion of Federal Funds for individual assistance to flood victims in Louisiana; Up to $150,000 in grants for individuals & small businesses.”

LEGAL AGE

“If an 18 year old is old enough to vote & join the military and die for his/her country as an "adult," he or she should then be able to drink and gamble at age 18.”

Social Security

“I pledge to support and protect Social Security Program as it is now, and to restore the solvency of the trust fund. New individuals entering the program should have an option to create a tax free IRA of their choice in addition to their contribution to social security. ”

Agriculture & Farms

“We need to increase smart farming in America and we can only accomplish that by ending subsidies to big corporations and invest those funds in small and urban farms. Instead of giving people a fish for the day--we need to teach them how to raise fish and vegetables so that they can grow their own food each day and feed their families and the local community!”

Economic & Tax Policy

“I strongly support a TAX REFORM where we REMOVE ALL THE JINDAL/TRUMP CORPORATE LOOPHOLES that enable THEM to NOT PAY any TAXES or PERSONAL DEBT at OUR EXPENSE. Additionally, I propose a 10% flat rate for all Non-Profit organizations. Last, we must end FEDERAL, STATE & LOCAL POLITICAL CORRUPTION with a $2700 POLITICAL DONATION CAP per individual or POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE--END CITIZENS UNITED.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Education

“Investing in education is perhaps the best investment that America can make. We must uphold responsibility at all levels of education. Everything that we do must have a check and balance so that we can determine whether the return on investment warrants the continuation of investment in that program. Those States and school systems that go the extra mile to do better should receive incentives. ”

Fracking

“I support increased development of clean and renewable energy such as solar, wind, geothermal & hemp biomass for heating. The root of the problem with fracking is The Federal Water Pollution Act -- the modern Clean Water Act and the Halliburton Loophole manipulated by Vice President Dick Cheney's legislation introduced in the 2005 Energy Policy Act giving fracking a free ride. I will repeal it.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Criminal Justice Reform

“We need criminal justice REFORM for BOTH criminals AND police. I recommend we create a Uniform Code of Police Justice (UCPJ), WHEREIN all police officers will know the rules and regulations and will abide by them, contractually, and with consequences. On the other hand, we also need to keep guns away from convicts, mentally ill and those on the federal no fly list. Background check is a must! ”

A Women's Right To Choose

“ A woman should be entitled to make her own decision with regard to reproduction. This includes abortion, particularly when they have been victims of rape, incest and/or when the life of the mother is in medical danger. As your Senator, I will establish a Community Parish Forum (CPR) for each parish within Louisiana composed of 11 democrats, 11 republicans and 11 independents with 6 women/group.”
