Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Soy el candidato que está contra la guerra. Yo retiraría las bases de ultramar, detendría los ataques aéreos ilegales y me opondría a las políticas de cambio de régimen. La guerra contra el terror es un estado de guerra permanente. No podemos costear
  • Yo detendría las redadas del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE) y les daría plenos derechos a los inmigrantes. Dejaría de convertir a los inmigrantes en víctimas expiatorias y reuniría a las famili
  • Los EE. UU. necesitan un sistema de atención médica de pagador único. Los costos de la atención médica son la causa principal de la bancarrota y son responsables de 18 a 20 mil muertes prematuras cada año. La atención médica debe ser un derecho, no u

Biografía

I've been living in the 49th since 1980. I went to Vista High. For the ladst 18 years I've taught Public Speaking and Debate at Southwestern College. I spend most of my free time as an organizer for the ANSWER coalition and the Peace and Freedom Party. You can usually find me either participating in or organizing marches against war, racism, xenophobia, and the Trump agenda. Some voters aren't comfortable voting outside of the 2 party system, but people who do political activism on ther street can vouch for the work we do at ANSWER.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de KPBS and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (6)

Family reunification is a process that allows immigrants already residing in the U.S. to bring in additional family members. Do you support limiting this process? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Jordan P. Mills:

I support allowing immigrants to bring their families. My mother had a green card from the UK until I was 35. Immigrants make America function. I support all workers, immigrant or otherwise. I oppose scapegoating hard working immigrants and their families.

Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Jordan P. Mills:

No. The wall is an expensive symbol of intolerance. It won't work, the cost is astronomical, and it can be circumvented easily. The net migration flow from Mexico is negative right now--the wall would actually keep people IN. It is a cynical symbol of anti-immigration ideology NOT an actual working immigration policy.

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Jordan P. Mills:

Some. I like gun safety classes. I oppose the militarization of the police. I think its a shame that the NRA--a manufacturing lobby--basically writes gun policy in the US. The extent to which these companies arm the world is appalling. I also support the student movement against school shootings. That being said, confiscation is an unrealistic idea, and working people have the right to defend themselves. School shootings are largely a subset of the growing fascist/white supremicist threat.

Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Jordan P. Mills:

If Mexico wants to violate NAFTA to protect poor farmers and workers, I support them. And I deny the utopian "free markets solve everything" logic behind NAFTA. That being said I don't support economic protectionism here. Trade wars and sanctions are aggression. 

Do you support raising the federal gas tax to improve the national transportation infrastructure (for example roads, train tracks, and bridges)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Jordan P. Mills:

I don't support regressive taxes. A millionaire spends a tiny fraction of their income on gas; a working mother spends a huge chunk. I believe that redirecting war budgets and taxing the 1% is a better way to pay for infrastructure.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Jordan P. Mills:

I support HR 676 and the Sanders single payer bill. Health care is a right. The private insurance system is killing us and bankrupting the economy.

Filosofía política

I'm a socialist. An actual, real, living, breathing socialist. Most of the things you've been taught about socialism are a lie. We don't believe in "free stuff"----workers make all the stuff of life and deserve to control the fruits of their labor. We aren't against freedom--we think the Capitalist/Imperialist system brings restricted expression, mass incarceration, and censorship with it. We don't think Socialism fails. It's Capitalism that collapses into depression like clockwork every generation. Its Capitalism that needs war and racism to function. Socialism works! That's why they hate it so much. Socialism means full employment, peace, environmental protection, gender equality and freedom for the oppressed nations within the US borders.
