Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2004
Kennedy was very well received in Los Angeles last week while meeting with Hollywood producers, directors and leaders in the Gay community to promote his presidential campaign which includes Gay Rights and support of same sex marriages. Kennedy is also calling for the strictest prosecution for perpetrators of hate crimes, especially against gays.
"I am angry that gays in America are being murdered, violently assaulted, discriminated against and treated as second class citizens. As President of the United States I will do all that I can to restore the dignity, safety and privacy of every gay man and woman in America. Some of the brightest lights and most creative and brilliant minds on this planet just happen to be gay. Wake up America and stop this hate-filled discrimination against our gay brothers and sisters!'' Kennedy said.
UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE/HEALTH:
It is appalling that the richest nation in the World has 44 Million Americans without Health Care. Affordable Health Care for All! As President, I will also fight to find a cure for A.I.D.S. I will support and promote the ultimate care of A.I.D.S patients and those afflicted with the HIV virus both in America and globally. I will lift the ban on stem cell research. Right the Wrong!
RESTORATION OF OUR CIVIL and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS:
As President, I will totally repeal the fraudulent ÂPatriot ActÂ, with a special focus on individuals Rights to Privacy. I will institute constitutional law, restore all individual rights of privacy and autonomy that is the birthright of every American citizen. We must never forget who stripped these from us! It was not only the Republican Bush family administration, but also masquerading Democrats, including Senator John Kerry, Senator John Edwards, Ms. Hillary Clinton, et al. I will re-design the abusive Social Security system (there is nothing "secure" about your SSN) with its criminal and flagrant abuse of our individual rights to privacy, by issuing every American citizen a new Personal Security Number (PSN) and abolishing the SSN as we know it today. I will start with a clean slate. Every American deserves this. Furthermore, I will continue to expose the secret government and black box budgets and make the government transparent, accountable and responsive to the US citizens. I will stop the intimidation of US citizens. I will stop the fear tactics by the Bush family administration and US government. I will re-direct military spending to domestic programs of health, homelessness and create a new infrastructure to support and finance humanitarian programs for the handicapped and under-privileged.
I support all civil rights for ALL people and whole-heartedly support the legal recognition of same-sex marriages and I will also fight to stop hate crimes, especially against our gay brothers and sisters. Equal rights for ALL humankind. Right the Wrong!
