Today's Rolling Cyber Debate Question for John Hagelin
My own worst quality? I am an idealist and a perfectionist--qualities some say are not well suited to the political world of compromise. As a scientist and a lifelong educator, I have spent my life researching and promoting solutions to the many pressing problems we face as a nation. With my commonsense solutions, we can save the lives of millions of Americans who die each year from preventable illness. We can protect our environment against irreversible devastation, global climate change, and other critical challenges. But we have to act fast, and we have to act decisively. We cannot waffle, and we must not compromise where our future is at stake. Some would say that these feelings are just not "politic."
As always, I invite all my fellow presidential candidates to steal my platform. I say, "Take these ideas and commonsense solutions, and incorporate them into your vision. These ideas will help you get elected, since they have the overwhelming support of the American people. And, after November 7th, one of you may be in a better position than I will be to implement these crucial solutions."
Any candidate who does so would receive my endorsement were I not running for President.
