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.
