Green Party U.S. Senate Candidate Says Prop 14 is a "Power Grab" By Big Business Interests
Duane Roberts, Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate, says Prop 14 is a "power grab" by big business interests that will disenfranchise millions of Californians by limiting their choices at the polls. Roberts urges voters to reject this "unprecedented attack on democratic rights."
Major Campaign Themes
I support driving private health insurance companies out of business and replacing them with a single-payer "Medicare-for-all" type health care system, ending overseas wars to pay for tuition-free higher education for all students, oppose nuclear power, and back the legalization of marijuana and hemp for medicinal, recreational, and industrial purposes.
