We are the Ian Schlakman campaign for President and we proudly present:

An OPEN REVOLUTIONARY SOCIALIST PLATFORM

    This presidential campaign is about creating a true international human rights focused agenda that's anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, & anti-colonialist. It's a platform based around what we need right now to end poverty at home and abroad. It's a platform that plainly states what our country must do right now to end the many crises and threats we've instigated. Finally we have a presidential platform that recognizes that we must abandon capitalism before it can cause any more harm and before it destroys us and the planet. We can, must and will create a new economy. Our campaign boldly lays out a framework for how to get there. 

    Anyone, including you, can add to and comment to this platform. We can't wait to hear your thoughts and ideas. So read it, vote for what pieces of the platform you like, add your ideas and then help us grow with more voices by spreading the word.

Domestic Policy

Domestic Policy: 

End Capitalism - Begin a Human Rights Based Economy and Government

Government has enormous power to define and control the economy. And despite claims to the contrary, the law defines the marketplace. We must use government to urgently switch from a capitalist economy to a socialist economy that is centered around the fundamental Human Rights of all people. We must take responsibility and make sure everyone has what they need to survive and thrive in this country.

Foreign Policy: 
End Imperialism - End Colonialism - End ALL Unilateral Actions
We need a foreign policy based on multilateral diplomacy, international law, and human rights. We can not be the world's police force and we must stop being the world's arms dealer. End the never-ending unauthorized wars abroad and drone strikes. Drastically cut military spending. Close the 700+ foreign military bases and bring our troops home. Permanently end the war on terror.
