OFFICIAL POLITICAL PLATFORM of
Cris Ericson for US Congress 2018
Cris Ericson for Governor of Vermont 2018
TAKE BACK YOUR YOUR GUN RIGHTS,
THE U.S. CONSTITUTION
IS THE ONLY GUN PERMIT YOU NEED!
Remember the Native American Indians
were forced off their land because
they had no guns to protect themselves
from European Settlers, and
the Black people of Africa were
kidnapped and made Slaves
because they had no guns,
and Hitler herded people onto
trains and into death camps
because they had no guns.
PROTECT OUR BORDERS, BECAUSE
WITHOUT BORDERS, WE ARE NOT
UNCONSTITUTIONAL RULES and REGULATIONS
Rules and regulations written by non-elected
government administrators are un-Constitutional
because only elected officials
can write state and federal laws that put you
at risk of your life, your property,
your freedom and your children.
HEALTH CARE for ALL AMERICANS
2 million homeless American citizens have
little chance of securing employment to pay
for health insurance. Health Care will only
cover all Americans if it is NOT insurance based,
but instead, paid for by taxes funding clinics
and hospitals and prescriptions. We should
require all medical schools receiving state and
federal funding to require students work for
government run free clinics to pay back
the taxpayers for their investment
in the students’ education.
PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICES
We must demand taxpayers own 50% of the profits
for all prescription drugs for which taxpayers paid for the research, design and development.
The government shouldn’t be handing out taxpayer dollars to
profit-making corporations without a return on our investment!
REFUND ON YOUR TAX DOLLARS
Taxpayers pay taxes, then the U.S. Congress
votes to give billions of dollars of your taxes
to the N.I.H., National Institute of Health,
and then the N.I.H. gives millions and millions
of your tax dollars to the
mega-wealthy pharmaceutical companies
for research to create new prescription
drugs and medical devices.
The pharmaceutical companies claim
the ownership of the Patents for all of the
drugs and medical devices they invented
using your tax dollars
to pay for all of their research; but, under
work-made-for-hire Patent Laws,
the taxpayers should rightfully own
50% (50 percent) of the profits of all sales
of all of the prescription drugs
and medical devices sold which were
invented using taxpayer dollars.
The N.I.H., National Institute of Health,
has co-conspired for years, with the number
one crime gang in the world, the United States Senate,
to deprive taxpayers of their right to 50%
(50 percent) of the profit on all prescription drugs
and medical devices that they paid for the research for.
The incumbent U.S. Senators have quietly stood by
and profited from this scam because they
get kick-backs in the form of
campaign contributions from the PACs,
Political Action Committees, of pharmaceutical companies
that received funding from the N.I.H. which
received the funding from the U.S. Congress
which took the money from taxpayers.
YOUR RIGHT TO CLEAN DRINKING WATER
STOP DUMPING TREATED SEWAGE INTO LAKE CHAMPLAIN
and re-route it to industrial uses and south to the Atlantic Ocean because one-third of Vermonters
draw their drinking water from Lake Champlain.
STOP the construction of any NATURAL GAS PIPELINE
within 150 miles of Lake Champlain
from which one-third of Vermonters draw their drinking water. Natural gas pipelines are in the news
nationwide too frequently for explosions and leaks!
STOP DUMPING CHEMICALS TO “TREAT” INVASIVE SPECIES
in Lake Champlain from which one-third of
Vermonters draw their drinking water.
Why should poor and low income Vermonters
who can’t afford bottled spring water,
be treated like “invasive species”?
OUTLAW MOTORBOATS in Lake Champlain
from which one-third of Vermonters
draw their drinking water.
New York doesn’t allow motor boats
in their drinking water reservoirs because
drops of oil and gas are harmful to our health!
Canoes, sail boats and kayaks provide plenty
of healthy recreation, so use them instead!
FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION
If you elect Cris Ericson, she will sponsor
a Bill in the U.S. Congress to make
a public library online with every single
college level text book on every subject
for which the copyright has expired so
that the public can use these freely.
This will create the first really
free college education by encouraging people
to study text books independently.
Then we need places for
independent students to take tests
to prove they have learned the knowledge from a text book,
such as testing facilities at
taxpayer supported colleges. This has to include all
text book levels of
medical school and law school subjects.
It is especially important to be able to certify people as having learned and passed all of the subjects necessary for a law
otherwise we are just pawns of the rich and wealthy.
We should use education taxdollars to make
movie videos for grades K – 12 and for each
standard college subject. Because these
movie videos would be paid for by taxpayer dollars,
the American public would own all rights
to these videos, and they could be distributed
to every classroom in the United States for each grade level.
REDUCING THE NATIONAL DEBT
Our biggest expense is what it should be,
our national defense. But, this valid expenditure
for our U.S. Military has made some defense
contractors mega-multi-millionaires, and
even billionaires. That’s the part that makes
no common sense, particularly since our
war Veterans are lacking a lot of medical and
dental treatment, and many are homeless.
Taxpayers pay taxes, the U.S. Congress votes
to give billions of tax dollars to the Pentagon,
then the Pentagon gives millions and millions
of your tax dollars to each defense contractor
for research and development of
new weapons systems and improvements of
existing weapons and jets like the F-35 strike fighter jet series, which is designed to be dual capable to
carry nuclear weapons, even though you
thought that the public decided a long time ago
to end nuclear proliferation.
Defense contractors which receive your
taxpayer dollars from the Pentagon which
receives your taxpayer dollars from the U.S. Congress,
which pays (your taxpayer dollars) to their PACs,
political action committees, and
also millions to their lobbyists; and the
PACs give your money to U.S. Congresspersons while
the lobbyists wine and dine your U.S. Congresspersons
(House of Representatives and U.S. Senate).
So, your tax dollars have come full circle
and lots and lots of them have ended up in the
pockets of U.S. Senators and Congressmen
Does that sound like a money laundering scheme to you?
It certainly sounds like
a money laundering scheme,
and it is costing you so much money
that it deepens the National Debt,
year after year, lobbyists paid for by
defense contractors who got the money from the Pentagon
who got it from the U.S. Congress
who got the money from you, the taxpayers,
are wining and dining your
U.S. Senator and Congresspeople
on shrimp and the most expensive wines,
vodka, and whiskey in Washington, D.C.
We can’t afford this money laundering scheme
any more, it has to stop. It isn’t just the Pentagon,
it is every group the U.S. Congress
votes to give your tax dollars to, whether it be
Planned Parenthood or any other group which
receives taxpayer dollars and then uses part
of those dollars to hire lobbyists to wine and
dine the members of the United States Congress,
House and Senate, and also
uses part of your taxpayer dollars to pay their PACs,
political action committees, to give campaign
contributions to members of the U.S. Congress.
DEFINE “NON PROFIT”?
Did you know the CEO of Planned Parenthood
makes a larger annual compensation
than the President of the United States of America?
Did you know that the top 18 employees
of Planned Parenthood each make
more annual compensation per year
than the salary of the
Governor of Vermont?
Define “non profit”!!!!!
YOUR TAX DOLLARS ARE BEING SPENT!
Low income people who apply for benefits
like food stamps and medicaid, must divulge all of their bank
accounts and assets under penalty of perjury;
so rich people who run non-profit organizations and universities
colleges and defense contractors and highway construction
contractors should be held
to the same standards as poor people when taxpayers fund their
Also, any entitity or corporation or non-profit or university or
college that receives taxpayer dollars
should not pay anyone anyone a salary higher than the equivalent
salary paid to a government employee.
For example, why
does the University of Vermont receive millions and millions of taxpayer dollars and pay the President of UVM a higher
salary than the President of the United States of America?
SCHOOL SHOOTINGS – GUN CONTROL
The United States Constitution is your gun permit.
I will propose a Bill to pay for every single school building to have
National Guard Troops,
metal detectors and drone surveillance until we can go ten years
without one school shooting.
Our obligation to our nation’s children is to keep criminals, and
those with bad intent,
out of schools, not to deprive law abiding citizens of their right to
Many people studied history and found out
that the Native American Indians were out-gunned by the
and they lost their homelands; and in Africa, people were
out-gunned and taken as slaves;
and in Germany, Hitler’s soldiers out-gunned the Jews; so the
bottom line is, you have the people
who have studied history versus the ones who didn’t study it that
and the ones that did, they think that it is far more cost effective to
have metal detectors and
National Guard Soldiers at every school building door.
HOMELESS MILITARY VETERANS
State and federal prison labor, men and women,
should be sent to forests with instructors to build log cabins with
solar panel roofs for each
and every homeless war Veteran, and space them on two acre
forest sections for privacy,
and give the Veterans gardening tools, a small barn, a cow, two
hogs and some chickens.
The U.S. Military Veterans risked their lives for us, now it is time to
do something for them.
They don’t spend their monthly
disability or pension checks on
apartments because they have a problem.
Accept that and give
them a home.
Our moral obligation is to help war refugees
get out of war zones to the closest safe location, and there are
many unpopulated areas
on planet Earth which could be inhabited.
There is no moral obligation to admit them into the
United States of America where we already have a problem of 2
million homeless American citizens,
which we have to take care of first!
It is hypocritical to say that America is a land built
by refugees. The truth is, it is a land
we originally over powered and took
from the Native American Indians and then used some
Black African Slave labor to build.
I think that we have to start at the very
beginning to bridge the racial divide, and that means that city and
town police officers should only
be allowed to work in the zip code that they reside in.
County sherrifs should only be allowed
to work in the county they reside in.
White policemen from a different county
going to “invade” a neighboring county that has a majority of
residents who are not white,
is just plain wrong.
STUDENT DEBT CRISIS
Under-age minors can be tried as adults
in criminal courts; so college students should be held liable for
their college debts. I
t is a matter of equal treatment under the law.
Make marijuana legal and lawful under
all state and federal laws.
It is written on our currency, “In God We Trust”
and so that is a contract we must keep.
Old Testament, Holy Bible, Genesis, Chapter 1, Verse 29,
“God gave us every seed bearing plant.”
God gave us wine grapes,
beer hops and marijuana because a man’s got to relax!
Women need to relax, too!
Marijuana has proven to be much safer than doctor prescribed pain killers, so marijuana should be legal under federal laws.
YOUR TAX DOLLARS GIVEN TO NON-PROFIT
The Supreme Court of the United States wrote an
Opinion that “corporations” are “persons”.
We must require all non-profits and universities
be treated the same as persons and reveal
their bank accounts, assets and foreign
bank accounts under penalty of perjury like
persons applying for food stamps or fuel assistance
under federal laws. No entity or non-profit
receiving federal funding, our tax dollars,
should be allowed to pay any employee more
than the equivalent pay rate for U.S. Government employees.
F-35 STRIKE FIGHTER JETS
Stop the F-35 strike fighter jets from being based
in Chittenden County because they are designed
to be dual capable to carry nuclear bombs
and do not belong in a highly populated
We must demand taxpayers own 50% of the
profits of sales of F-35 jets to foreign allies
because taxpayers paid for the research,
design and development of these Jets
and we should not be handing out taxpayer dollars
to corporations without getting a return on our investment!
Vermont Yankee Entergy Nuclear Power Plant
has closed down in southeastern
Vermont. The people who were laid off
from their jobs know how to work with
nuclear material. Should this region of Vermont
be polled to see if they would
like to have the F-35 Strike Fighter Jets there?
President Trump is Commander
in Chief of the U.S. Military and can order
the U.S. Military to build a new
airport near where the Nuclear Power Plant operated
Some of the material from
the nuclear power plant can
be re-used for military purposes.
KEEPING SCHOOLS LOCAL
We must allow all certified teachers to be
independent contractors and
home-school local children at the
rate per child that the State,
which receives federal funding,
claims is the cost of education per child.
GETTING OFF OF “BENEFITS”
We must provide low income recipients of
telephone “lifeline” benefits with
wifi and broadband to encourage
online at-home employment. This
is particularly important for low income
Vermonters who can not afford
a car which can pass the new
Vermont vehicle inspection laws, and
live in rural areas where there are
no buses or taxis.
We must require a transparent EB-5 program
where anyone can post their idea for a new
business on the government website in a list
that foreigners can read and contact anyone
in Vermont who wants to start a new business
and needs investment money.
END PLEA BARGAINS
OUTLAW PLEA BARGAIN DEALS
Too many innocent people are forced into plea bargain
deals and “admit” to crimes they did not do because
of family and financial problems they can’t take care of
when the bail is too high for them to get out of jail.
Too many innocent people are forced into plea bargain
deals after a Jury has found them innocent 11 to 1 guilty,
or innocent 10 to 2 guilty, and then the person is still
held in jail for a second trial, or a third trial,
with bail too high to get out and take care of
family and financial obligations.
It is un-Godly for a prosecutor and a Judge to hold
someone for a second trial after 11 Jurors found that
person innocent, and one juror may have been paid off.
This system of filling up private for profit prisons is
