“Nothing to be proud of” President Trump's accumulation policy, by a small part of Americans, is not a story that our government can be proud of. The coronavirus crisis has shown that our government adopts policies that promote asset-building among some while denying it to others. This favoritism is made largely on the basis of class. Creating a society with enormous injustice and inequality. The question is, then, what can be done to provide equal incentives and rewards to give to those who have-nots the same havers' opportunities. The answer is remarkably simple. Governments should support people who promote social circular economy processes. They provide the basis for transforming our society and will have in a strong democratic ticket, led by Biden, the presidential candidate who makes Americans around the world proud again to lead the world with dignity, justice, and fairness.
I believe Joe Biden and the team he will assemble around him in numerous positions provides a strong counterpoint to the current lunacy we're amidst. And as our Democratic nominee for President, I proudly support him as we all seek ways to work together, come together again, and elect him in November. We can and will talk policy, economics, climate change, health care, education- it's a longer list isn't it? And I hope to be one of your voices who engage in these conversations at the convention as we set our platform out. And in doing so represent not just Biden voters but all Democrats, frankly all Americans, abroad and at home, to be the hopeful, innovative, successful nation our enshrined democracy destines us to be.
I am excited to be participating in my first presidential election as a member of Democrats Abroad and proud to be running as a delegate in such a significant and consequential election. I grew up outside of Washington, DC and have always had a great interest in government and politics. During high school I volunteered for the Kerry-Edwards campaign before attending the University of Rochester to study Political Science. After living and working in the Washington, DC area and later Boston, MA, I moved to London, UK in the fall of 2017 where I currently reside. As a young liberal minded pragmatist I am deeply concerned about the future of American politics and about Americans', both domestic and abroad, faith and trust in the system and would be proud to stand up and help elect a candidate such as Joe Biden become our next president.
