Marcia Squier on Government Reform

 

 


Easier voter registration; restrict superdelegates

Q: Do you support easier voter registration?

A: Strongly support.

Q: You posted on CrowdPAC on July 13, "Michigan's voice didn't matter because each superdelegate vote negated thousands of votes." How would you change the superdelegate rules?

A: I am not a Democrat, so I would have no pull within that party to change their rules, but I would support legislation that forced the Democratic Party to pay for its own primaries instead of the states if they continue to weight the vote totals this way.

Dem. superdelegates cheated Michigan voters of their choice

[Marcia Squier's posting on CrowdPAC.com, "Why you should support Marcia Squier"]: I had never belonged to any party, but had been an active voter for over 20 years. I joined the green party in the summer of 2016, after it was revealed that the Democratic Party had a solid candidate for president, but they cheated him at every level imaginable. I ran as a green party candidate against a superdelegate in Congress who, along with every other Michigan superdelegate, voted unanimously against the candidate [Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT] who won the Michigan democratic primaries. I felt like Michigan's voice didn't matter because each superdelegate vote negated tens of thousands of votes.

Repeal Citizens United; publicly fund campaigns

Q: Would you support a Constitutional amendment repealing Citizens United?

Marcia Squier: I would wholeheartedly support an amendment that would repeal Citizens United. We desperately need to get the money out of politics. Campaigns should be publicly funded. Campaign donations should be strictly limited and enforced. Broadcasting stations and journalists should should be banned from making donations, as well as the companies that produce anything related to the electoral process, such as the voting machine manufacturers, which by the way, I believe should be banned in favor of hand-counted paper ballots, or at the very least, open-sourced coding software with audit-able paper trails and independent oversight. For my campaign, I am not soliciting campaign donations at this time.

Rep. Brenda Lawrence (Dem.): Yes, I firmly believe we need campaign finance reform.
