Ricky believes in an America where every human being is entitled to the following inalienable rights:
Ricky believes in an America where these are inalienable rights, that all living human beings deserve them, and that they must unequivocally apply to everyone, without regard to race, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, income, genetic information, disability status, national origin, religious belief (or lack thereof), and social or citizenship status.
Anyone with clear eyes can see that liberal democracy—otherwise known as neoliberalism—has failed. Therefore, Ricky believes that it is time to transition into a socially democratic global system, one that will do away with laissez-faire economics and place power back in the hands of the people, and not the privileged few. A better world is possible, necessary, and inevitable.
But there's more to a people's social movement than a mere list of beliefs.
Let's break it down.
Chapter 1: Justice For All
Chapter 2: Education For All
Chapter 3: Prosperity For All
Chapter 4: Health Care For All
Chapter 5: Nature For All
Chapter 6: Diplomacy For All
Chapter 7: Economics For All
Chapter 8: Citizenship For All
It's time for America to focus on policy again.
No matter the color of your skin, income level, linguistic proficiency, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation, you are entitled to equal justice. We must end systemic inequality.
American academia needs our help. Americans need more education than what is being offered from K-12, and it's time to make higher education tuition-free for everyone.
The PHCA will establish a universal health care system available to all U.S. residents, remove profit from health care, and establish a Health Care Bill of Rights for everyone.
The AJA will finally modernize labor standards and consumer protections, establish a living wage, and finally establish an American Workers' Bill of Rights for all workers.
The AMERICAN DREAM ACT will finally establish a modernized, humane, just, and sensible immigration system for all those seeking to migrate to the United States.
In these confusing times we live in, this is a very fair question to ask. We must remember the movements of the past and apply their truths. When we are kept apart, we are weak.
When we organize, form collectives, and become a union of citizens determined to change the status quo, we become strong--stronger even than the very powers that want us to remain apart.
Organizing and showing solidarity with our neighbor is one of the most important things we can do, but there remains so much more to accomplish before achieving our shared vision.
We must unite. We must rise from the ashes of an oligarchic plutocracy to restore prosperity to the everyday American and stranger within our gates. We must remember that we are stronger together, never apart.
We must use our collective voices to demand change. We must refuse to be silenced. We must take action and make them remember where the real power lies--in the ballot box. They know this well.
Will you join us in this fight for a radically better tomorrow?
The choice is yours.
