By Dr. Lynn S. Kahn independent candidate for President

During the October 19 2016 Debate (last question asked is at the top of the list)

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

[Why should people vote for you?] My vision is an America that works for everyone with no one left out; my vision is a government that restores trust by delivering results. I have a very clear platform - Fix Government and Build Peace - that means transform our broken federal government agency-by-broken-agency while building peace here at home and around the world.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Raising taxes on the wealthy is not the source of economic growth -- and will not happen in the next 4 years! Cut waste and non-performing programs to pay for Social Security plus jumpstart jobs and strengthen public education and public health systems. CUT TAXES by reclaiming the hundreds of billions of dollars of waste sloshing around in our bureaucracies.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Focus on jobs and jobs and jobs by cutting waste and use savings to jumpstart jobs and build partnerships to - yes jumpstart jobs. Provide true incentives for American companies to bring back money parked overseas and jumpstart jobs. Stop growing non-performing bureaucracies and close tax loopholes to reduce the debt!

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Our foreign policies and international interventions have been disastrous for decades as arms dealers and defense companies and militaristic adventurers have captured decision making in our foreign policy agencies. American values are called into question when our government continues aggressive interventions around the world.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Stop drone attacks; stop bombing in the mid-east; stop sending arms and fighters into conflict zones; do not put American troops on the ground in the mid-east; and convene or support conversations now about the political and economic structures that will be built once warfare stops.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

My 5 point doctrine on war and peace building in the 21st Century; 1) We must be strong to build peace; 2) the role of the military is to defend the homeland and the role of the US Department of State is to build peace; 3) building peace does not mean being stupid; 4) we must make wiser foreign policy decisions and demand integrity from our international partners; 5) we must tilt Washington DC toward peacebuilding.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Trust in politicians and government and conventional media are at all time lows; only integrity in government and cutting waste to invest in our families and communities will start to restore trust. See my series of videos on dealing with the failures of each major government agency - start here: Video 6: Fix the US Department of Housing and Urban Development

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

This election is about integrity - demanding honesty from our political leaders and demanding truth from our federal departments and agencies. We the People are frustrated and angry at the overall failure of our government and the utter inability of our agencies to deliver results.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Instead of trash talking - how about more discussion about the epidemic of domestic violence in America - measure the truth and support programs that directly address this problem including school based programs that prevent violence and support peer mediation. Call out political leaders who demean women and families.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

The strategic pieces of the 21st economy include 21st century infrastructure - all of it: roadways and highways; waterways and ports; bridges and tunnels; airspace and airways; pipelines and waterlines and an integrated and energy efficient electric grid.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Immediate need for jobs include: 100 thousand new Jobs Corps and AmeriCorps slots with expanded Green Energy Corps; 200 thousand new teachers for expanded early childhood education; 200 thousand new jobs for coaches and mentors in justice reform programs.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Take one trillion dollars of waste out of our bureaucracies and use the savings to invest in our communities. YES we must hold to a goal of 25 million new jobs over the next 10 years. YES we can jumpstart jobs by cutting waste and non-performing programs.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

100 million Americans living in or near poverty cannot wait for tax policy changes - and Congress will never lower taxes on the wealthy.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Two pieces to grow the economy and create a true 21st century economy – (1) the strategic level where we put the pieces in place; and (2) the on-the-ground reality where 100 million Americans live in or near poverty

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

To grow the economy start by measuring the truth - unemployment is between 11% and 24% and poverty in America is 34% - one in three Americans struggle every day with hunger and homelessness and economic insecurity.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Time to bring discussions and costs of maintaining nuclear stockpile into the open - we must move onto the road of dis-armament and diplomacy; we must sign nuclear nonproliferation treaties; and we must recognize that there is no such thing as a "smart" nuclear weapons.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Yes I believe Russia is trying to interfere in our elections. And yes I believe we cannot sweet talk a bully.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

In my 5-point plan for war and peace building Rule #3 says: Building peace does not mean being stupid! Terrorism is a real concern whether we can trace motivations of terrorists to our military operations or not - we have to pay attention. We must have strong border control. Separate immigration from border security.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Immigration: take care of America first; give border agents tools and training needed; demand coordination and communication across law enforcement agencies that manage our borders; stop deporting people here for years; redefine role of ICE and take Family Detention Centers out of Homeland Security; support the DREAM Act and establish legal path to citizenship for people who have lived and worked here

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

Questions that demand one position will never lead us to solutions: I am pro-solve the problem. Eliminate the root causes of the problem: why do women and girls get pregnant when they do not want to have babies? Solutions include: access to free birth control, honest sex education, better benefits and policies to support new parents and parents of young children, and deal with the issues of domestic violence which include rape and incest.

Lynn S Kahn for President 2016

I don't like the assumption behind the question "Where does the Supreme Court" lead America? We the People choose our political leaders through elections. The role of the Supreme Court is to interpret our Constitution in the context of current realities. Recent cases have leaned towards Big Business and damaged our republic.
