REVEALED: Roseanne Barr's Candidate Questionnaire (PDF)

REVEALED: Roseanne Barr's Candidate Questionnaire 

http://www.roseanneforpresident.com/

 Roseanne Barr

Outreach and exploratory questionnaire for the 2012 GPUS presidential

nomination

1. Are you interested in seeking the Green Party 2012 presidential

nomination? Are you considering seeking the nomination, but have not yet

made up your mind? What factors are you taking into consideration?

I am 100% committed to seeking Green Party 2012 presidential

nomination and look forward to competing for the nomination while

promoting the values and ideals of the Green Party to our fellow

Americans. 

2. What do you believe the goals should be of the 2012 GPUS presidential

campaign? If you were the GPUS presidential nominees, how would your

campaign work to achieve them? (Will your campaign succeed?)

The goals of my presidential campaign are to speak to the needs of the

99% and support them in their struggle for economic justice and true

representation that is not influenced by outside corporate forces.

Corporations are not people. Both the Democratic and Republican

parties are bought and paid for by corporate America and cater to the

needs of the highest bidder as opposed to the people they claim to

represent. I cannot be bought. I have been a tireless advocate of

Occupy Wall Street since Day 1 when I delivered my campaign

speech in Liberty Plaza on September 17th, 2011. I have considerable

access to mass media as a result of spending the greater part of my life

in show business. I look forward to utilizing that platform during this

campaign for the GPUS nomination and reaching a wide audience

while speaking to the needs of the 99%. I will take my campaign for

the GPUS nomination to ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News, the

Internets and beyond, thus changing the course of the conversation

surrounding the elections at large. I will barnstorm American living

rooms. Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more

importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average

Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election. My commonsense

approach will have heads exploding inside the beltway and eyes

lighting up in households across the country. With the majority of

Americans sharing our values and with my passion for fairness and

uncompromising honesty, the people will have a crystal clear choice

between Washington politics as usual and the Green alternative. We

have had it and we are ready for true change. Behold the Greening of

America.

3. Please list five issue areas that you feel are most important and what

would you do about them. (Who are you?)

1. OBLITERATION OF THE “TWO PARTY” SYSTEM – I will

achieve this by becoming the first Green Party President of these

United States as a result of our victory in the 2012 general election.

I also believe it’s essential to do away with the Electoral College. 

2. CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE – I will introduce a

Constitutional Amendment that will end corporate personhood and

remove the unfair advantage that corporations have in influencing

the decisions made in Washington. If it doesn’t think, breathe and

bleed, it’s not human. It’s not even a dog. I will then take this one

crucial step further and embrace current efforts to remove all

money from our electoral process.

3. ECONOMIC JUSTICE – As President of the United States, I will

reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 as well as bringing back

the financial transaction tax that, for pennies on the dollar, will be

a windfall for social programs in danger of being cut. I will remove

the immoral cap on FICA tax for the rich. I will rewrite labor laws

so that U.S. companies are bound by them even when they try to

skirt them by shipping jobs overseas. This will effective  roadblock mega-corporations from outsourcing production to

countries with immoral, inadequate and nonexistent labor laws.

Our jobs will stay here in the United States of America where they

belong. I will close the loopholes that allow some of our nation’s

most profitable corporations to get away with not paying any taxes

at all.

4. HEALTH CARE NOT WARFARE – Not only will I bring home

all U.S. troops from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya,

Mexico and the Horn of Africa, but I will also permanently shut

down the 1,000-plus foreign U.S. military bases around the world.

This would save more than enough money to implement a singlepayer health care system in the United States. Guantanamo Bay

will remain open and that is where I will send anyone who opposes

this plan. Just kidding on that last part.

more here:

 4. What parts of the GPUS platform do you feel most closely aligned with?

What parts do you disagree with, if any? Are there parts you would improve

upon and how? (Who are we?)

The Green Party platform is a straightforward, commonsense

approach to the central issues facing America today and this is why I

look forward to knocking on doors, lighting up Twitter and taking to

the airwaves to promote our values and message.  As a mother and

grandmother, and as someone who has spent a career in a maledominated and chauvinistic industry, GPUS’s views on feminism

strongly appeal to me.  As someone who lives and works on a farm

and cares deeply about our environment, I’m very passionate about

issues related to sustainability and how we treat our planet. As

president, I would insure environmental protections for the Earth and

the biosphere by implementing a Green New Deal for America.

Which is not to say we are in total agreement, nor that we should be;

any political party must allow for, and I embrace, differences,

conversation and inclusiveness. One point of contention, for example,

that I have with the Green Party platform pertains to criminal justice.

While I wholeheartedly agree that most prison sentences should be

replaced with treatment and rehabilitation and that prison time should

be reserved for violent criminals, I would add that in some cases

prison sentences should actually be expanded – for instance, the

violent crimes of those on Wall Street who have defrauded the

American people of trillions of dollars. They should be prosecuted and

placed in prison. For the most part I agree with the Party's platform

that people should be treated with compassion, but for criminals as

terrible as these, I believe only the harshest punishment will do.

 5. What in your background qualifies you to be a credible presidential

candidate? What assets would you bring to your campaign in addition to

those already existing within the Green Party? (What do you have to offer?)

From the very beginning of my career as a stand-up comic in the

purple state of Colorado, I have been using comedy as a vessel in

which to wrap my advocacy with a spoonful of sugar. I have been

fighting for working class families and women for decades.  My frank

talk is second to none and I have earned America’s respect with my

brutal honesty. I am able to express myself in a way that is intelligent

and articulate but doesn’t put my audience to sleep or make them slit

their wrists. My experience as a public figure and my ability to handle

media scrutiny and criticism is great preparation for a national

campaign and the national political spotlight.  I’m no stranger to

political organizing and campaigning, either.  I’ve participated in voter

registration drives, voter outreach, canvassing, including work with a

wonderful organization that used to go by the name of ACORN.  From

neighborhoods in Miami Dade County to college campuses from Ohio

to my home state of Utah, I’ve campaigned, not as a politician or a

spokesperson, but as a mother, grandmother and concerned citizen

who cares deeply about this country.

6. Presidential campaigns are legally independent entities from the political

party whose nomination they received. Yet most successful political

campaigns meld candidate and party synergistically. If you were the GPUS

nominee, how would you envision that working relationship? (How can we

work together?)

I have an existing network of grassroots supporters and the Green

Party has an existing infrastructure of state and local parties.

Synergizing these two powerful groups will be the key to my

candidacy. Many of my existing supporters are newcomers to the

political process. They live in the wide pockets of America

traditionally overlooked by the two party corporate system and are

difficult to reach by insurgent third parties. My campaign will focus

its efforts on empowering these good Americans. I will work closely

with the Green Party to engage them and welcome them to the

existing army of Green Party supporters. The success of my campaign

will be determined by our ability to activate the tens of millions of

voters who've given up on the traditional process as well as the tens of

millions who still take part even though they feel like they have no

choice. I am welcomed into the living rooms of tens of millions of

blue-collar Americans, many of whom appreciate the work I did in

honestly portraying their plight on network television. As they have

welcomed me into their homes, I will welcome them into the Green

Party.

7. Do believe that an independent party like the Greens can succeed in the

US? How would you define such success? How can it happen? (Will we

succeed?)

I would not be running for President if I did not believe I could win. I

would not be answering this question if I did not believe the Greens

could succeed in the U.S. The “two party” system is clearly broken.

The 1% has two political parties – Democratic and Republican – but

the 99% only has one: The Green Party. We are in a unique position

this election to bring millions of new voters into the fold. More and

more Americans see that every day. On both the right and the left, and

also in the center, Americans are waking up and realizing that

something must change. Whether it is the Tea Party or the 99%,

people are taking matters into their own hands and changing the

debate. The Green Party is already well-positioned as an existing party

and with the right candidate, the underlying sanity of its platform can

not only reach new ears, it can change both the course of conversation

in America and the course of this country itself. With the rising tide of

discontent expressed and embodied by the Occupy Wall Street

movement, the time has never been better to convert this energy into

success in the voting booths, thus breaking the stranglehold the “two

parties” have on American politics. 

8. There is some interest within the Green Party of 8. There is some interest within the Green Party of having the party's

nominee run together with a Green Cabinet, that would feature prospective

cabinet members and federal agency heads that would serve in your

government, should you be elected president. Such an approach could

demonstrate what a Green government might be like and would do so during

the election, promoting transparency. It could expand the number of people

campaigning, with Cabinet members on the road and in the press in addition

to the nominees. What do you think of this approach? Who might hold

positions in a Green Cabinet? How would you see your candidacy

interacting with those individuals during the campaign? (How might weconnect the dots?)

What better way to dovetail my campaign with the existing Green

Party infrastructure than to work with those most familiar with it? I

will consult with the Green Party in effort to build a Green Cabinet I

can regularly consult with and refine my platform based on their

feedback. Running for president is a collaborative effort. Building a

Green Cabinet would help amplify our message and show the

American people what a Green administration would look like.

From Green Party Watch

by Ron Hardy

Green Party Presidential Race, Delegate Counts, & Ballot Access

With the official certification of the Illinois Green Party primary results, Jill Stein has locked in 22 Delegates to the Presidential Nominating Convention (PNC), Roseanne Barr has 5, Kent Mesplay 2, and 2 are Uncommitted.

These numbers are based on a Delegation Formula that is currently being voted on by the Green Party’s National Committee, with the vote concluding this Sunday. The allocation is currently passing by a 43-9 margin, however there is an effort to defeat it and vote on an alternative. If this allocation is passed, there will be approximately 350-400 Delegates allocated, with the largest Delegations to the PNC coming from California (65), Illinois (31), New York (16), Michigan (16), Maine (13), Texas (12), Massachusetts (11), Arkansas (10) and Connecticut (10). The full list of proposed Delegation sizes is listed below.

The only other state besides Illinois that has held a State Convention to determine Presidential Delegations so far is Ohio, which may be allocated 9 Delegates. Given that Jill Stein won 90% of the vote there, she likely will receive 8 or 9 of Ohio’s 9 Delegates, while the 9th Delegate could wind up either Uncommitted or going to Roseanne Barr, who won 4.7%.

Minnesota’s caucuses earlier this month were largely a straw poll, and apparently not binding on Delegate support. The final numbers of that straw poll bear witnessing though: Stein: 92, Barr: 26, Mesplay: 22. If these proportions of support eventually turn into Delegates, Minnesota’s 7 Delegates might go 5 for Stein and one a piece for Barr and Mesplay.

Considering Illinois and Ohio only, at this point Jill Stein has 30 Delegates, Roseanne Barr 5, Kent Mesplay 2, and 3 Uncommitted or Unknown.

The next Primary for the Green Party is in Arizona on February 28, where six names appear on the Green Party ballot: Kent Mesplay & Jill Stein, who are both running nationally, along with Gary Swing, a Congressional candidate from Colorado, and three Arizonans: Gerald Davis, Richard Grayson, and Michael Oatman. Roseanne Barr had not qualified for the Arizona Primary ballot in time, but given the 18% write-in vote she received in Illinois, gaining votes, and delegates from Arizona is not impossible. Arizona would be allocated 5 Delegates under the proposed plan. A debate in Arizona this weekend features Kent Mesplay and Jill Stein.

Over the next three weeks, many more State Green Parties will be holding Conventions and Primaries to determine Delegates for the candidates seeking the Green Party nomination. While Jill Stein appears to be the early on favorite, it is too early to tell whether she will secure enough Delegates prior to the Presidential Nominating Convention to become the presumptive nominee. Stein’s success so far can be attributed in part to her organized campaign, and her willingness to campaign across the States such as Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, California, Arizona, Wisconsin, New York, Vermont, etc. meeting with “Greens on the Ground.”

Another major force is the Stein Campaign’s serious commitment to Ballot Access. The Stein Campaign got the Vermont Green Party re-established and the Utah Green Party on the ballot, and is actively committing funds and resources to put the Green Party on the ballot in 46 states. This is a costly exercise, but a necessary one. States that benefit from the Stein Campaign’s efforts will certainly reciprocate with votes, and Presidential Delegates. Petition drives are costly, and the Green Party’s Ballot Access Committee has been starved for funds. The Green Party could use a wealthy donor to make a significant contribution earmarked for Ballot Access and the money would be very well spent.

The Roseanne Barr Campaign is by no means sitting on the campaign sidelines.Roseanne’s website prominently states “OCCUPY THE GREEN PARTY!” and encourages people to participate in the Wisconsin Green Party Primary, currently underway. Roseanne Barr’s entry into the Green Party race resulted in hundreds of mainstream press pieces, and her inclusion in a Public Policy Poll, where she polled at 6% versus Barack Obama (47%) and Mitt Romney (42%). Given that the California Secretary of State has added Roseanne Barr to the Green Party’s Primary there in June, and California’s possible 65 Presidential Delegates (16% of the total number), it is safest to say that anything can happen. If nothing else, Roseanne Barr should book herself a ticket to Baltimore in July, because she has earned a prominent role at the Green Party’s Presidential Nominating Convention.

Kent Mesplay is also running for the nomination, and despite setbacks such as being “un-recognized” by the Green Party’s Presidential Campaign Support Committee (PCSC) due to low fund raising numbers, Kent is campaigning as best he can given his limited resources. Mesplay and Stein will be debating in Arizona this weekend, and Mesplay has been clicking for votes in Illinois and Wisconsin via email and Facebook. He is still hoping to raise the funds necessary to become “re-recognized” by the PCSC, but the further behind he falls in the Delegate count, the harder it will be to raise those funds. Mesplay points out that he is on the ballot in Texas, California, Massachusetts, & Arizona, and that he is stumping for votes in other states that meet and vote by Convention.

Harley Mikkelson of Michigan has yet to receive a Delegate, and has not made a significant effort to appear on Presidential Primary ballots such as Arizona that require simply a signed affidavit expressing interest. Although he is not currently recognized by the PCSC due to several measures, he is on the Wisconsin ballot and will likely be on others.

Green Party Watch will continue to provide coverage and commentary about the Green Party Presidential race throughout the year.

Joe says:

Just out of curiosity, how does one determine the number of delegates from each state?

  • Ronald Hardy says:

    In the case of the proposal being currently voted on, the number of delegates per state is determined by the same formula that determines the number of Delegates to the Green Party National Committee, but with 400 as the total number instead of 150.

    Basically it establishes a minimum number of Delegates for each Caucus and State (2 or 4), and proportions the remaining Delegates by weighing campaign strength, membership strength, and presidential voting strength of each state, with population (sort of) substituted for membership strength at times.

    Here is the spreadsheet that has all the factors in it:
    http://www.ilgp.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/2012-Convention-Apportionment.xls

    Here is the proposal being currently voted on:
    http://gp.org/cgi-bin/vote/propdetail?pid=644

    I should note here that there are many who do not like this formula, and an alternative proposal has been submitted, but this one is currently in the vote queue and will be either passed or rejected by Sunday.

CBS News reports Rosanne Barr seeking Green Party nomination for President

Roseanne Barr seeks Green Party presidential nomination

 (AP)  

WASHINGTON - Roseanne Barr said Thursday she's running for the Green Party's presidential nomination — and it's no joke.

 

The actress-comedian said in a statement that she's a longtime supporter of the party and looks forward to working with people who share her values. She said the two major parties aren't serving the American people.

"The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants — bought and paid for by the 1% — who are not doing what's in the best interest of the American people," Barr said.

Roseanne Barr serious about running for president

Occupy Wall Street protesters popularized the "We are the 99 percent" slogan in their fight against economic disparity and perceived corporate greed.

Barr has submitted paperwork to the Green Party for her candidacy. The party's presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July.

Barr said she has been fighting for working-class families and women for decades.

"I will barnstorm American living rooms," she said in a candidate questionnaire submitted to the Green Party. "Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election."
