LOVE THE EARTH PROTECT THE EARTH CHANGE EVERYTHING CAMPAIGN PLATFORM

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Human beings need a healthful environment in order to experience full, happy lives.  The most important endeavor of government is environmental protection.  Protecting the Earth from releases of pollutants and habitat destruction must become the number one priority of national government.

ENDING WAR

War is a highly negative and damaging activity.  In the Modern Age, war has become extremely destructive and involves the release of tremendous quantities of pollutants to the environment.  War must no longer be practiced.  The United States federal government must set forth a declaration that prohibits the involvement of the United States in any warlike activities.  The only exemption to this prohibition is self defense in response to outright attack.

ENERGY USE

Americans use a very large quantity of energy in the everyday pursuit of their lives.  This must change.  Energy consumption has become an extremely significant part of the impact of human existence upon the Earth.  Energy conservation must become the main focus of our nation’s energy policies.  Tar sands exploitation in the United States must be prohibited.  The United States must stop purchasing fuels that originate in tar sands exploitation.  High volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) must be prohibited in the United States.  Oil and gas utilization activities must be subject to the provisions of the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act.

ANIMAL RIGHTS

Animals have the right to live natural and normally healthy lives. Factory farming must be outlawed in our nation.  Using animals to produce food with no consideration of their suffering is wrong and our society must bring an end to such activities.

EQUAL RIGHTS

Women have the right to do everything that men have the right to do. In order to insure that women’s rights are not abused, we need to create an amendment to the US Constitution that guarantees women’s rights.

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY

The people of the United States want to have representation in the federal government.  The people of this nation want to have a voice in making decisions at the federal level.  Our government has become fully controlled by corporate influences.  So as to throw off that control and to insure that no such control ever comes to exist again, prohibitions against campaign contributions from corporate entities must be established.  Federal political campaigns must be conducted solely with the use of public funds.

HONORABLE AND EFFECTIVE GOVERNMENTAL REGULATION OF CORPORATIONS

Corporations have the capacity to harm the environment and the general public.  As a step toward countering the harmful effects of corporations, we must prohibit the employment of people with corporate connections and involvements in the federal government.  Government regulatory agencies have been taken over by the very corporations that they were created to control.  Corporate aligned individuals must be removed from their positions and replaced with people who have no such affiliations.
