A Message from Bill
I’m on the Missouri Democratic ballot for president March 10th.
I’m the best candidate for president you’ve never heard of.
Look out Donald, I’m coming for you.!!!
This is the real deal. I have a path to the nomination!
If I get 15% in a congressional district in Missouri’s primary March 10th, that gets me a delegate to the convention, and that gets me into the debates.
I filed with the FEC in December of 2018, 50 years to the month that I first told my Uncle Wil that I was going to be president one day.
My rescue dog Elvis and I took a road trip to Des Moines, Iowa last march and held a town hall at Drake University, and did ads in Iowa and New Hampshire to warm up for the Missouri primary.
Once I’m in the debates, I’ll know what to do. I’ve been preparing for this 50 years.
As Benjamin Franklin said, we must hang together or assuredly we’ll hang separately.
Democrats need to stop criticizing each other and start criticizing Trump! Whoever wins the nomination, we must work together to win the election, and when we win the election, we must work together to make this the country we deserve.
I expect to get support from my performance in the debates, and be the consensus nominee, a moderate with a progressive heart, on the 2nd ballot in a brokered convention, especially if President Obama endorses me and Michelle agrees to be my VP. That’s the winning play no matter who is the nominee!
I’m about people not politics, and it’s been my dream to be president, so I can help others’ more simple dreams come true.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
The Issues Bill Stands For
A critical issue we need to address in an affordable way with carbon tax and/or carbon exchange. I will also work to lower our reliance on fossil fuels (before it’s too late)!
Early Childhood Reading
All children need to be reading at grade level by third grade or this country will go nowhere! I’d like to see the Republicans try to stand between me and the money for early childhood reading. It won’t be pretty for them.
Affordable, Comprehensive Healthcare
Move toward Medicare for all/Single Payer by lowering buy-in age for Medicare to 55 and lock in pre-existing conditions.
Violence Prevention Public Service Announcements and Hotline
Public service announcements 24×7 and a dedicated hotline asking people about to hurt themselves or others to come in from the cold and call to ask for help. We need to have that help ready!
Entitlements: Social Security & Medicare
Prevent Republicans from outsourcing Social Security and Medicare to vouchers and privatizing to pay for the deficit they’ve created by giving massive tax breaks to their rich contributors.
Tuition Aid & Student Debt Relief
End current loans after twenty years; money for new loans will be repaid by a percent of your income over the next twenty years.
Senior Care and Child Care
Ombudspersons required for senior care and nursing homes and other residential living facilities. I will work toward an increase in federal funds for these services, making sure our senior residents are properly cared for and protected from abuse.
Common Sense Gun Laws
Ban on high-capacity magazines, universal background checks, increase gun purchasing age to 21, and have serious discussions involving a complete ban on all assault weapons.
Immigration: Invest in Northern Mexico
Our money is better spent on this than a wall.
End Animal Abuse on Factory Farms
Pretty self explanatory here. This needs to END!
Severance for Workers Displaced by Outsourcing & Automation
If companies are laying off workers because of mergers, acquisition or automation, they shall be required to give those workers a fair severance based on years of service. If they can’t afford it, then they shouldn’t merge, acquire, or automate.
Corporate Tax Breaks
No federal tax breaks for sports teams or other companies playing one jurisdiction against another, cities or states. No more threatening to move if they don’t get money.
I am in favor of legalizing cannabis for medicinal purposes, including traumatic brain injuries especially for veterans.
I am also in favor of states and cities voting on whether to legalize cannabis.
Thirdly, I support the FDA reclassifying the drug category of cannabis and the Justice Department not enforcing any federal cannabis laws against states and cities who choose to legalize.
We need to invest in our infrastructure. This will create jobs and help to ease income inequality.
There are many ways to address this complicated important issue – and we will find them! That’s a promise.
I will propose a constitutional amendment requiring that a man and woman both be elected from each congressional district, even if that means half as many districts. It would make a great difference in the Congress and, therefore, the country.
Safe, legal, and rare. Affordable and accessible.
