Political Experience

1967 March on Pentagon protest against the Vietnam War

1968 Campaigned on behalf Eugene McCarthy

1982 Ran for MN State Representative, Libertarian Party

The Grassroots Party, renamed Grassroots-Legalize Cannabis Party for ballot purposes, has been the Guardians of the Garden since 1986. 

Our permanent platform is the Bill of Rights of the United States and Article 13, Section 7, of the Minnesota Constitution which says, “Any person may sell or peddle the products of the farm or garden occupied and cultivated by him without obtaining a license therefore.” 

As your Representative, I will lead the effort to remove all federal impediments to: First, speech, free from censorship by government chartered entities; second, assembly, unfettered by tendentious medical martial law with mission creep; third, security, in our “persons, houses, papers, and effects” from mass surveillance and civil asset forfeiture; fourth, trial by jury, rather than administrative proceedings conducted by various licensing boards; and fifth, purchase and enjoyment of agricultural products as implied by the growers right to peddle.

America has more problems than it deserves, more solutions than it applies, and more truth than it defends.

You know our economic system is rigged. You know our political system is rigged. But we don’t have to stand by helplessly.  We don’t have to suffer economically, tolerate candidate bribery or live in a world without a sustainable future. We don’t have to live in poverty anymore; without education, without health care and without hope. As Alfred, Lord Tennyson once wrote, “Come my friends, Tis not too late to seek a newer world.”  We can create the world anew and that is what this campaign is all about.

"Let us come together as patriots to restore our rights, reform our laws, and reveal to a doubting world what America still can be. I will serve all the residents in Minnesota's 1st Congressional District and fight for your rights."
