Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Pamela Elizondo

Candidate for
United States Representative; District 1

This information is provided by the candidate

I am Pamela Elizondo, and I am proud to be the Green primary election winner here in the 1st District with the support of over 2,100 Green Party voters. My race for U.S. Congress is intended not only to unseat Mike Thompson, but to encourage respect for diversity, and to offer solutions that reach across party labels to the ideals we all share.

Please join this campaign to offer 5 simple changes to save the Earth and its inhabitants:

1. For an increased tax base to retire our national deficit and debt, charge ONE CENT tax Federal, State, & County for every dollar transaction. Currency and derivatives speculation must be directly taxed to put human needs before private greed.

2. Governments should BUY the necessary resources to function through the free market, rather then spend trillions of taxpayer's war dollars STEALING them from other nations. The United States military must withdraw from its occupation of Iraq immediately.

3. Taxpayer's dollars now wasted on taxpayer's NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS (such as defense space research, military aid to other countries, unneeded buildings such as sports arenas), should be diverted to a new 2-year grant program which would create a full-employment economy centered on green technology research & development, and environmental restoration work in every watershed.

4. Businesses & Landowners should get tax exemptions & deductions only for money spent employing & benefitting people restoring OUR Earth. Cut tax loopholes for rapacious developers and job exporters.

5. Legalize and tax hemp & marijuana, PROFIT from growing as a substitute for current sources of paper, food, fossil fuel products, and hydroelectric and nuclear energy. Widespread legal growing of cannabis plants can provide shade for young trees, clean dirty air by removing carbon dioxide, and prop up a failing economy & environment.
