Jess Phoenix—The Dark Side of Grass Roots

Jess Phoenix—The Dark Side of Grass Roots

What does it mean to be a grass roots candidate?

What does it mean to be a Grass-Roots candidate like Jess Phoenix, the scientist running for California’s 25th Congressional District?  On the most basic level, it describes a process that utilizes collective action on the local level in order to effect change—it functions as a bottom-up rather than a top-down model.  As a Strictly Grass-Roots candidate, Jess does not accept money from corporate donors.  Her campaign receives money only from you, the people.  And she has done phenomenally well by this metric—she’s attracted over 7,000 donors, each giving an average of $45!  In a very real sense, this structure ensures that Jess will answer only to you, her future constituents.

 

That bears repeating: She won’t be at the beck and call of assorted businesses or political organizations; she will work only for you.

You have the opportunity to elect someone who isn’t beholden to outside interests

The opportunity to elect someone who isn’t beholden to outside interests is an amazing gift.  Too many politicians have sold themselves to the highest bidder.  That makes the prospect of a smart, independent Congresswoman who truly cares about her constituents irresistible.

 

That’s the good news.

 

Here’s the bad news: when you eschew big corporate sponsors and huge lobbying groups, you give up a lot.  Jess can’t afford to bombard every neighborhood in the Simi, Santa Clarita, and Antelope Valleys, with an endless succession of glossy, promise-packed mailers.  She can’t afford slick, professional, obscenely expensive commercials on major cable networks.    Tragically, all she can afford is me.

 

Like Blanche Dubois, in A Streetcar Named Desire, Grass-Roots candidates have always depended on the kindness of strangers.  That means that the poorly-crafted, annoying, pseudo-art film attached to this blog is as close to promotional video as this honest, hard-working woman can get.  It’s not really fair—what Jess deserves are expensive ad campaigns, glossy mailers, and unforgettable catchphrases, like “I’m Lovin’ It!”  What she has is a free YouTube video.

 

Save Jess Phoenix from the travesty of pseudo-advertising.  Support and reward her honesty—DONATE to Jess Phoenix today!  The entertainment world will thank you.

Jess Phoenix–Genuinely Nice

Jess Phoenix–Genuinely Nice

Upon her election to Congress, Jess Phoenix, the Democratic candidate for California’s 25th Congressional district, intends to do something nearly unprecedented—she plans to be nice.  In today’s toxic, polarized political climate, her ability to be warm and amiable might qualify as subversive.  Her compatriots, on either side of the aisle, may be wholly unprepared for behavior of this ilk.  But Jess is all about changing perceptions and shattering stereotypes, so this is the kind of innovation she hopes to foster.

Send someone nice to Congress- Jess Phoenix

Granted, good nature is not a pre-requisite for political service.  If it were, our nation’s capital would be the biggest ghost town since Bodie, California.  But wouldn’t it be awesome to re-introduce pleasantness to Washington, DC?  Concepts like “give and take,” “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” and “live and let live,” are on life support. Courtesy is a dying art.  And collegial politicians are on the endangered species list.

We all agree that Congress would benefit from a dose of common sense—as a scientist, Jess will bring that to the table, too—but perhaps an injection of congeniality would be just the sort of revolution we could all get behind.

If Jess can simply act as a “carrier” of this condition, spreading decency through her example, it’s possible an outbreak of compassion or agreeableness might follow.  And—really, in the spirit of equal opportunity—don’t we want to bring some token kind people into our government?  Isn’t that what the concept of integration is all about?

Take a stand for diversity. Send someone nice to Congress.  It’s SO crazy, it JUST… MIGHT… WORK…

Jess Phoenix–Someone Who Understands

Jess Phoenix–Someone Who Understands

No one should ever experience the heartache of a school shooting.  No one from any walk of life deserves that kind of pain.  Jess Phoenix, the Democratic candidate for California’s 25th Congressional district, has experienced this nightmare first-hand.  Nineteen years ago she was on her way to Columbine—the high school her boyfriend attended—to participate in a track meet, when the earth-shattering tragedy occurred.

Jess Phoenix has seen the tragedy caused by gun violence

“I was a seventeen year old high school student living in Littleton, Colorado in 1999 when the Columbine shootings occurred. I saw firsthand how gun violence shatters lives and tears apart communities. Since then, we have seen too many mass shootings with no end in sight. Domestic violence and suicide attempts are also made worse when guns are involved. We need common-sense gun reforms that will help prevent mass shootings, domestic violence, and suicides. This means closing background check loopholes, opposing Concealed Carry Reciprocity, directing the Centers for Disease Control to study the gun violence epidemic and fully funding their efforts, and forming a Congressional Select Committee to investigate the causes and solutions to our country’s gun violence problem.” – Jess Phoenix

Jess understands the complexities of common-sense gun reform—both of her parents are in Law Enforcement.  She respects those of differing viewpoints, she has lived on different continents, and she has learned to listen to people with varying opinions on every subject. She will work tirelessly to build consensus and effect positive change.

Throughout the ensuing years, Jess has lived life to the fullest.  But she has never forgotten the terror she witnessed.  Nor has she forgotten the beautiful friends she lost on that dark day—wonderful people full of joy and potential.

Through no choice of her own, Jess Phoenix comprehends this issue in a way that none of us ever should.  And she will use her hard-won understanding to keep her constituents safe.

Vote: Jess Phoenix for Congress–Scientist | CA-25 Candidate

We live in a strange day and age.  In today’s world, unlike in recent years, facts are under assault.  The nature of reality and the nature of truth are being questioned by some in our government.  Jess Phoenix, the Democratic candidate for California’s 25th Congressional district, provides the perfect antidote to this intellectual malaise.

“As scientists, we must be a light; we must be the beacon amidst the darkness.  That is our job.”—Jess Phoenix

Jess Phoenix offers evidence-based policy and solutions

Jess Phoenix is a scientist—a Volcanologist to be specific.  As such, she conducts her business in accordance with solid, verifiable information.  As a Congresswoman, her policy will be strictly evidence-based.  She will strive to answer questions with data and solve complex problems with input from multiple people and sources.

The same creative mind that led her to a life of Science will lead her to apply unique solutions to the many challenges that the 25th District faces.  Jess aspires to make the cities of her constituents a hub for Green Energy, utilizing the endless talents of local Aerospace veterans and entrepreneurs.  She hopes to bring a CalState University to her community to cultivate generations of future problem-solvers.  She dreams of hosting world-class concerts and big-ticket entertainment in her district, in order to expand the cultural and artistic profile of the Simi, Santa Clarita, and Antelope Valleys.  But she doesn’t intend to wish these advances into existence—she will make them happen by harnessing the facts, figures and copious research required to advance each of these plans.

Science provides a clear road map for accomplishment.  And, against an anti-fact canvas, Jess’ future accomplishments will provide hope.

Jess Phoenix Shares Your Values

In the final analysis, it all comes down to your values.  We all make choices in life and, ideally, our choices will reflect our values.  Similarly, the person for whom you vote needs to exemplify your belief system.  Jess Phoenix, the Democratic candidate for California’s 25th Congressional district is undoubtedly the person who will best represent the principles of her constituents.

Californians, like all Americans, are guaranteed Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness by our Constitution.  But without access to healthcare, people cannot enjoy those rights.  Towards this goal, Jess supports the expansion of Medicare, in order to provide excellent healthcare for all Americans.

We must do more to provide healthcare to every American

“As one of the strongest and wealthiest countries in the world, we must do more to provide healthcare to every American. I strongly support the ACA, but I know we can do more. The Trump/Knight plan is a disaster that would cause over 70,000 of our neighbors to lose coverage. I will be a strong advocate for Medicare for all Americans.” – Jess Phoenix

Additionally, she advocates for better care for mothers and infants to guarantee uniformly better outcomes.  She endorses the expansion of Medicaid coverage.  She eschews corporate donors, so Jess will not kowtow to Big Pharma. As a grass-roots candidate, she will maintain the autonomy and energy needed to lower premiums and prescription drug costs.  As a member of Generation X, Jess understands how difficult it is for young people today to obtain quality job benefits, so she will strive to ensure that children 26 and under can stay on their parents’ plan.  And because she cares about women and women’s issues, she will tirelessly defend Planned Parenthood.

Jess Phoenix shares your values.  And that will make all the difference.
