Issues you care about most or see as most critical to solve
I'll say it flat out: I am interested in seeking the endorsement of the Citizen's Party for the presidency of the United States.
I believe in your party's platform, though the devil is in the details, of course.
But, more than that, I have a plan to get there based on tried and proven policies ranging from Lincoln to Henry George to Ellen Brown as inspirations. See my book, "America is Not Broke!" americaisnotbroke.net.
P.S. There is not much time to register with the FEC.
