In His Own Words

“I’ve been saying around the country the first thing I’m going to do is get people 1,000 bucks a month…But I will actually amend it all to say the first thing I will do is put democracy back in the hands of the American people. Then the second thing I am going to do is get you that money.”

“The big problem right now with running for office is that you have to get the money on your side and the people on your side, and these are two different things. Imagine if every American had $100 Dollars to give to their favorite candidate—then if you get 10,000 people behind you, you’d get $1 million. You could then act in the best interests of the people you represent instead of sucking up to rich people and companies. Calling rich people for money is soul-crushing. We’d all be better off if politicians just needed to worry about representing the people that elected them rather than hustling for money all of the time.”
