    To be truly free you need economic rights as well. ... When I talk about 'Democratic Socialism' is to make sure in the richest country in the history of the world ... that everybody has at least a minimal standard of living and some dignity as a result of that.

    The spirit of our country … doesn’t rest in the President. I mean, the President is important. But the spirit of our country rests in the neighborhoods – in the people[.] We’re the ones who need to change the world. We’re the ones who need to fix education [and] deal with the problems of the poor.

    You should be able to live, work, and raise a family anywhere you choose. To ensure that every American has a solid foundation for success - wherever they choose to live - I will double funding for Early Head Start and make pre-k universal for four year olds, enact free community college, and support telemedicine and Medicaid expansion.

    Life is foundational. In fact, as you look at the Declaration, that ordering of unalienable rights, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I think it’s a very deliberate ordering. Without life there is no liberty, and without liberty there is no pursuit of happiness. That each builds upon the other.

    I strongly support this. The fireworks are in the constitution itself.
