Born and bred in Santa Monica, CA! I'm a Californian Progressive Technocrat and believe the purpose of government is to expand opportunity and provide during times of struggle. I believe that all people who live in California are citizens of California regardless of documentation status. It is the duty of government to end institutionalized inequity, provide a realistic living wage, and provide housing for all. As a rule, all regressive taxes will come to an end where people who spend all there income will cease to be burdened the most. I view all social welfare through an economic viewpoint and find that it's easily justified as the most viable solution both as a human and fiscally. By the end of my office I will require California to be entirely self sufficient in its water and energy needs, energy that will be 100% renewable and redundant. I love the line,"life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" and see it as all the reason we need for government to justify social welfare reform. No one should ever go hungry, cold, or without internet. Yes, Internet is a necessity in our modern republic.
