Embracing and Safeguarding Democracy at Home and Abroad

"Our democracy has been purposely systematically dismantled over the last five years and continues to be by several Republicans in Congress. We have to get to the bottom of right-wing efforts to thwart our democracy and need to use all federal resources to combat domestic terrorism in all its forms."

I believe in democracy. I also believe our democracy has been purposely systematically dismantled over the last five years and continues to be by several Republicans in Congress. We have to get to the bottom of right-wing efforts to thwart our democracy and need to use all federal resources to combat domestic terrorism in all its forms.

I would like to use my investigative skills by serving on the 1/6 Select Committee or other future related committees. It is time to take a stand and strengthen the House’s subpoena power by establishing steep financial fines and criminal convictions for those who deny House subpoenas, our Constitution, and act above the law without consequences. Enough already! This should be a multi-partisan, American effort.

The United States was once the beacon of democracy and I think it can be again. I support the United States’ effort and programs to develop democracies around the world. I believe in this is best accomplished using diplomacy and fully funding our State Department, foreign embassy and consulates, U.N. and NATO partners.
