In tandem with my candidacy, I began a movement called One of US. It is based on the need that our nation has to start having our representatives in government at all levels and in all branches actually be representative of the majority of Americans, the so called 99%.
In 2015, the median US income was $56,516. That means that anyone who made more than $60,000 in 2015 could only represent less than half of Americans. That is not the majority and thus not democratic! This movement seeks to elect only Senators, Congresspersons, and a President whose incomes are each below $60K and whose networths are each no more than about the value of owning one modest house and one basic automobile.
