Once, Americans could complete a course of free public education, which prepared one to get a 40-hour per week job that paid enough to have a really good life & retire at 60.
That is gone now — as people struggle to make ends meet with two or three jobs — but Americans can take it back!
America’s greatness is not in its ability to kill and destroy. Our unity, values and aspirations to improve are the hallmarks of our greatness. From the American Revolution to our pursuit of ‘the Great Society’ Americans are unique in the history of the world because we value one another as equals.

Lisa McCormick is a transformational political talent, with the tenacity to forge ahead despite overwhelming opposition in pursuit of the restoration of democratic equality in America. Her goal in 2018 is to recruit a team to challenge the political establishment that refused to impeach Donald Trump, collaborated with the corrupt administration of Republican Chris Christie and sold out working class New Jerseyans to do favors for rich political contributors, even when they were robbing taxpayers.
