Peace and Justice – those are the main themes of the congressional campaign of Gary Swing. When Swing speaks of peace, he means it. Swing supports the legal prohibition of war. He seeks the abolition of weapons of mass destruction – including the massive arsenal of nuclear weapons held by the United States. He advocates the removal of American soldiers from all foreign nations, and their reassignment to purely defensive positions within U.S. borders.
Swing also advocates the radical political reorganization of the American political system. He suggests: “Eliminate presidential elections, which are meaningless shams, and decentralize political authority. Switch to a parliamentary system with a weak chief executive selected by Congress.”
Abolishing the Presidency is not enough for Swing. He also wants to close down the U.S. Senate, and “elect the U.S. House of Representatives by the proportional representation voting method used to elect Australia’s Senate. Voters could either cast a simple vote for their favorite party or rank individual candidates in their order of preference.”
Swing is campaigning to represent the first congressional district in Colorado. That district is currently represented by Democrat Diana DeGette.
