Reasons & Objectives
Why I Am Running for Public Office

full representation in both houses of Congress. We need to have autonomy over our budget; we need to have control over our local legal system; in other words, we need to be like other American citizens -- We need to be equal -- We need to be a state !

This is why I'm running for Shadow Senator

A recent nationwide poll showed that 82% of the American people support our right to full representation. We need to find ways to use this support to put our fight for equal rights on the national agenda. We need to start a revolution and we need to start it today.
