Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Proteger a nuestras comunidades mientras preservamos nuestra libertad, al ponerle fin a la confiscación de activos civiles, la militarización de la policía, las redadas sin notificación, la inmunidad calificada y la fallida y racista guerra contra las drogas. El primer día, indultaré a todos los infractores de drogas no violentos.
  • Traeré a nuestras tropas a casa. Haré que los Estados Unidos sean como una gran Suiza: armada y neutra. Estaremos en paz, pero armados y listos para defender el terreno y las costas estadounidenses.
  • Haré que los cuidados de la salud sean fácilmente asequibles eliminando las barreras para la competencia del libre mercado, reduciendo la burocracia y legalizando las clínicas gratuitas para la gente de escasos recursos.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California (3)

Health Care Quesstion

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the President.
Respuesta de Jo Jorgensen|Jeremy "Spike" Cohen:

The freedom to travel is fundamental to human liberty. We should be free to travel anywhere we choose, and free to host, house, or employ peaceful people on our own private property. As President, I will work to repeal arbitrary quotas on the number of people who can legally enter the United States to work, visit, or reside.

 

I would abolish ICE. It was not needed 40 years ago, and is not needed now. It is a threat to the liberty of immigrants and citizens alike.

Separating peaceful people from their children - as has been done by administrations from both old parties - is inhumane and beneath us as a nation. As President, I would end this practice immediately. Treating peaceful people humanely is the only ethical way for us to greet those who come to the U.S. in search of a better life.

The current administration's use of emergency military funds to build a wall was unconstitutional, a gross expansion of presidential powers, and will prove ineffective at stopping undocumented immigration. For fiscal as well as moral reasons, the project must be abandoned.

I will end the failed, racist War on Drugs, and create pathways to employment (with or without citizenship), both key elements of reducing border violence and the risk of labor exploitation. 

Infrastructure Question

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Government is too big, too bossy, too nosy, and it often hurts the people it's supposed to help. Generations of Republican and Democrat politicians have failed the people of America. Both have given us:

  • Over $23 trillion in debt, trillion-dollar deficits, plus trillions more in unfunded liabilities

  • Non-Stop involvement in expensive and deadly foreign wars

  • Skyrocketing health care costs

  • The highest imprisonment rate in the world; even higher among racial minorities and the poor

  • A broken retirement system unable to pay promised benefits

  • Tariffs that are destroying markets for American farmers

  • An endless immigration crisis

Big government mandates and programs created these problems. To solve them, we need to make the federal government smaller – much, much smaller.

That won’t be easy. The two dominant parties, both of which have massively expanded government over the last century, have created barriers to political competition. The mainstream media continues to pretend voters do not have the third option that Libertarians fight to bring every voter in every state.

But here’s the thing: the American voter is smarter, more principled, and more fed up than anyone in Washington suspects. The more voters see of the old parties’ representatives - the squabbling, the lying, the fear-mongering, the corruption and conflicts of interest - the more disgusted voters become. This opens the door for libertarians to show how individual freedom, real criminal justice reform, deregulation, slashing of taxation, and peaceful foreign policy will benefit everyone.

What appeals to voters most is a candidate who delivers the change they want and need for their families. A candidate who takes on the entrenched, bipartisan “establishment” which routinely squashes our civil rights; sends too many young people to die in needless wars; tears families apart and ruins business enterprises with irrational, racist policies such as the mandated minimum wage, welfare programs with perverse incentives, suppressive business-licensing laws, and the devastating and costly drug prohibition. A candidate who will end skyrocketing health-care costs by enabling a thriving, free market, with real price competition.

Voting Libertarian attracts more good Libertarian candidates and more votes: we are building up a movement, not just a single candidate or campaign. I am running to create real change for real people, bringing the core values of individual liberty and small, limited government back to the heart of America.
