"I offer a positive vision of a better future for America and Americans," Reiger says. "In the last 25 years or so America has abandoned many of its traditional ideals. Fair play, peace, equal justice, civil rights, and other virtues have been compromised or abandoned."

"Today many Americans live in fear and uncertainly. It doesn't have to be that way. We can change directions. We can create a better America for ourselves and our children."

Bring the Troops Home

Our current occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan is illegal and immoral. It is killing Americans and lots of Iraqis and Afghans, tarnishing America’s reputation in the world, creating more enemies, and bankrupting our nation.

Health Care for Everyone

We need a single-payer type national health care system; one that covers everyone. We can do it for less money than we spend on the current broken system - and it would improve the public health in this county.

Expand Democracy: Count Every Vote

Recent elections have shown the need for improvements in American democracy. Let’s join the rest of the democratic world and use proportional representation(PR) and instant runoff voting(IRV). We also need public financial of campaigns to eliminate to influence of big money donors.

Welcome Immigrants

We should be welcoming these honest, hard-working folks into our society. Let’s find a way to help them become citizens, if they wish, and stop the current climate of immigrant bashing.

End Discrimination

Fifty years after the beginning of the modern civil rights era racial discrimination is still a fact of life for many people in America. Other kinds of discrimination continue to exist. These blots on our national character must be rooted out.

Protect a Woman’s Right to Choose

We need to support women’s reproductive rights, along with family planning, education, and good medical care.

Double the Minimum Wage

The living standard of working Americans has declined over the last forty years. We must reverse this trend and ensure a decent wage for all workers. Labor unions must be strengthened and supported.

Marriage Equality

This is the civil rights test for modern America. Everyone should have the right to marry the person they love, with all the legal benefits and recognition that goes with marriage.

Fair Trade, not Free Trade

“Free Trade” is not free. International “free trade” agreements hurt workers in all countries. They hurt less developed countries. They hurt the environment. We must replace “free trade” agreements with fair trade agreements that protect workers, consumers, and the environment.

End the Death Penalty

The death penalty is immoral and barbaric. It is ineffective as a deterrent to crime. It is prone to errors, yet it is irreversible. It discriminates against poor people and minorities, and it is also very expensive.

Defend the Environment

No other problem looms larger than our need to reverse the damage to our environment. We must begin a massive program to stop global warming and switch to responsible uses of our environmental resources.
