On Civil Rights: Ratify anti-gender discrimination treaty

The Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) has yet to be ratified by the United States since President Carter signed it in 1977. It is a disgrace that the most progressive nation in the world is the only industrialized nation and one of twenty-one countries who have not ratified the treaty. 170 countries have done so and we absolutely must.

On Education: Increase resources: children and teachers are first concern

A sound education system that provides the very best to every child should be the #1 goal of our nation, each state and each school district. Sometimes, I question the amount of power local school districts have. I am very concerned that certain schools and school districts do not seem to have the resources needed as children and their teachers should be our first concern.

On Energy & Oil: No nuclear waste shipping -- look for alternative energy

I believe the waste, wherever it is, should stay where it is! It makes little sense to me to dangerously transport such hazardous materials across our country and then to have it all at one very dangerous location. This is a very difficult issue with no easy answers. It makes one feel we should be looking for alternative sources of energy, doesn’t it?

On Homeland Security: Pacifistic abhorrence of war: don't babysit the world

“A strong offense is our best defense,” so they say. Personally, I am pacifistic by nature. I abhor war. It is my opinion the US will always be drawn into conflict because we have set ourselves up as the “baby-sitter” to the world. If we keep all nations subjugate to our power, we will always be in conflict. Perhaps it is time to examine and to change our world view. Perhaps it is time to help other nations gain respect for us by showing respect for them by letting them “grow up.”
