Goal: dignity for white people

No, I am not a white supremacist. I do feel, however, that white people have gotten a bad rap in the United States. They are subjected to the insulting concept of “white privilege” and historical guilt and unflattering images in the media and in entertainment productions. This serves to demoralize white Americans, rendering them incapable of resisting bad leadership in our country. U.S. politics is defined by racial division - minorities favoring the Democrats and whites favoring the Republicans. As a Democrat sympathizing with whites as well as minorities, I hope to help bring about a healthier politics centered upon issues affecting everyone.

Instead of displaying passive-aggressive resentment, white people need to affirm their positive racial identity. Be open and cheerful about it. No legislation is required to stand up for your white ancestors and yourself. Join me in a “white man’s walk” where we walk together and discuss race, gender, politics, or anything else. Your participation does not imply any particular social or political views. We need not demonize each other over questions such as this. Race relations can be openly discussed and all points of view will be respected. See: http:www.billforpresident.org/walk.html

Goal: a 4-day, 32-hour workweek (also see other side)

I am in favor of federal legislation to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act reducing the standard workweek to 32 hours from 40 hours and making certain other changes to allow working hours actually to be reduced. Why? Because it will become hard to sustain human employment as robots and other machines assume economic functions. No other candidate is talking about this. I have expertise and a track record on this issue. See website: http://www.shorterworkweek.com.

We need shorter work hours to counteract the labor-displacing effect of year-to-year increases in labor productivity which has increased four-fold since the Fair Labor Standards Act was passed in 1938. Economic output per worker hour has increased four times. This is not a short-term fix but a sensible long-term adjustment. If organized labor will not champion shorter work hours, government has to do it. The U.S. Senate actually passed a 30-hour-workweek bill in 1933, but government staffers and outside business interests killed it. Instead of working to feed the government, we would be happier and no less prosperous in working only four days a week. Market forces would maintain the level of wages. You would have more time to live in your short life.
