2016 woke so many Americans to the issues in our government. Bernie Sanders led the way in opening many people’s eyes to a better alternative. He also unintentionally showed us the level of corruption in our political system. Many Americans are standing up and saying “No more!” Various groups have banded together to form the Peoples Platform. It is a platform popular with the majority of Americans and is the platform I believe in.
It is time for all of us who are scared for the future, passionate for justice and tired of not being heard to come forward and heed the call. Principled people are stepping up and running for office under the banner of no corporate or PAC money, and I stand with them.
I want to announce that I am running for Congress as the Representative for the 8th District in Washington.
I have lived all over the country and have met people from all walks of life. We have far more in common than we are different. People are sick of the corruption in our government. People want to have good, secure jobs. People need proper healthcare. People want to feel safe and secure while they live their lives. People want clean water and air. Parents want to have a safe and happy future for their children. When large corporations just want to make obscene profits, they are against these programs. As long as wealthy interests have such a strong influence on our elections, there will be a large disparity in what the people want and what our government actually does.
From my personal experience I know how close so many Americans are to bankruptcy or homelessness. This is especially true of Millennials. Millennials grew up in a time where college moved from an option to a mandate for jobs that pay more than minimum wage. This is the same time period in which college got so expensive that many students could no longer simply work their way through college, saddling most students with outrageous debt. At the same time, over the last 10 years we have seen housing prices skyrocket, especially in my district. According to Zillow, many cities in District 8 have seen their housing prices double since 2011. High college debt, high rent and low wages leave many unable to get ahead without a good amount of luck.
It is time we start taking the American Dream back. We need to stand up for our democracy and revolt against this growing oligarchy.
I am running for Congress here in District 8 because too little is getting done, and much of what gets done is against the people’s interest. We cannot let the DNC pick the candidate or we will just end up with another 2016 election. This is not something I can do alone. This is something we must do together. This is our fight. This is our future on the line. Let us stand together and reclaim our democracy. Support my campaign at VoteRobertHunziker.com.
