Richard Weiss Is Green Party Senate Pick
By Bob Small
Richard Weiss is an attorney who has the Green Party nod for Pennsylvania’s U.S. senate seat. He ran before for attorney general and a judge.
He has a number of issues for which he proposes green solutions.
One solution he proposes for the Covid controversy is that “we could have hours of operation for those who want masking”. Further on, he proposes that we could have “mask-only buses and mask optional buses”.
These may or may not be practical solutions, but they’re at least possible solutions.
He believes that we should seek to negotiate peace in the Ukraine and revoke the authorization for use of military force (AUMF) instituted on Sept. 18, 2001 in response to the 9/11 attacks.
He wants to reduce overseas bases to pre-911 levels, bring troops home and spend that (my italics) money at home. He supports the Stop Arming Terrorists Bill proposed by Tulsi Gabbard”, and wants to free Julian Assange.
He wants to end civil asset forfeiture and qualified immunity, and ban fracking
During an extensive electronic interview he said supports approval voting which he says would eliminate any spoiler effect, backed criminal justice reform and single payer healthcare, and explained why he is running as a Green.
“The Green Party is in favor of ending forever wars, closing oversea bases, and bringing troops back home,” he said.
Full disclosure. I’ve been affiliated with the Pennsylvania Green Party for almost a quarter of a century.
They represent enough of my values that I continue to support them. If I wanted a party that supported all my values, I’d have to form one.
