A Call To Courage:

While politicians run against a villain like immigrants or corporations or automation, we are running against ourselves and the courage we owe ourselves. We know politics is about power, but here are just a few policies we'd exercise.

21st Century Priorities

Reparations & Black People's Equity

As a Black man from America married to a Black man from Venezuela living in Central Harlem on Malcolm X BLVD, JFK holds these policy priorities nearest and dearest. His efforts in “personal data” policy have been solely rooted in his will to turn Black bodies into an unattainable type of property by other entities, meaning it would be impossible to be owned neglected or deprived of the political, economic, socio-cultural and technological demands that one’s dignified autonomy and choice requires, per our Constitution’s Right to Life. These are at the root of his Inclusionism and they can be achieved with both legislation and litigation. That stated, JFK has adopted the entire platform of the Movement for Black Lives with the caveat to focus on differentiating programs for the American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) from Black people as a whole. JFK acknowledges The Black Tax from 1619-Present at somewhere above 104 Trillion US Dollars without wholly being adjusted for inflation. He acknowledges that there is some 600 Billion US Dollars worth of value taxed away from Black Lives every single calendar year of the past decade in this 21st Century, and notes that as a consistent tax in the form of not only: teachers, lost equity, prison population, employement gaps, subprime lending, and discrimination. The solution set is multi pronged, but must be sustainable in the face of undying racism both locally and globally. In the doctrine of Shawn D Rochester, author of The Black Tax, JFK is advocating for the paradigm of Purchase, Hire, and Deposit (PHD). This adoption also advances JFK’s notion that Black people are in need of a bio-political system more tailored to the dynamism of individuality than systems of old: left-wing bio conservatism, right-wing bio conservatism, libertarian transhumanism, democratic socialism, fascism, and communism. He rejects all brands of conservatism, and thinks they stifle inclusion of the most disenfranchised. All of these systems create a big political tent by diluting the discovery of the individual’s identity. JFK states that “individuals are at their best when they identify with a community, and communities are only at their best when they identify all of their individuals.” meaning that we require a dynamic system of applying tangible evidence of inclusion to the people we identify among us. By tangible, he is always talking about property and capital that we are owed. In a world where we are measuring the existence of humanity at an increasingly micro level, it is absurd to do away with assigning more micro ownership to the means of production people and instead assign them to a large body alone or a state or a class. He rejects how the liberal democratic party talks about working-classes and others classes alone and is rebranding social order as “the working people own it”, to acknowledge that toiling itself is not at the core of our bio-political or socio-economic problems; it is however, the failure to properly allocate property and capital that is derived from that property to its rightful owners. JFK is in no way an advocate for the zero-sum nature of economics currently simplified for the American public but a leader in the movement for dynamic equity and decentralized democratic inclusion. For these reasons he is in support of:

  • An Immediate End to the Criminalization and Dehumanization of Black Youth Across All Areas of Society Including, but Not Limited to, Our Nation’s Justice and Education Systems, Social Service Agencies, Media, and Pop Culture
  • Reparations for the Systemic Denial of Access to High Quality Educational Opportunities In the Form of Full and Free Access for All Black People (Including Undocumented, Currently, and Formerly Incarcerated People) to Lifetime Education Including: Free Access and Open Admissions to All Public Universities and Colleges, Technical Education (Technology, Trade, and Agricultural), Educational Support Programs, Retroactive Forgiveness of Student Loans, and Support for Lifetime Learning Programs
  • A Reallocation of Funds at the Federal, State and Local Level From Policing and Incarceration (JAG, COPS, VOCA) to Long-Term Community Based Safety Strategies Such As Education, Local Restorative Justice Services, and Employment Programs
  • A Progressive Restructuring of All Tax Codes at the Local, State, and Federal Levels to Ensure a Radical and Sustainable Redistribution of Wealth
  • Democratic Community Control of Local, State, and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies, Ensuring That Communities Most Harmed by Destructive Policing Have the Power to Hire and Fire Officers, Determine Disciplinary Action, Control Budgets and Policies, and Subpoena Relevant Agency Information
  • An End to the Criminalization of Black Political Activity Including the Immediate Release of All Political Prisoners and an End to the Repression of Political Parties
My Thoughts: Blackness has been the most persecuted identify either taken or given in documented human history because of the effort to differentiate Whiteness. Our political leaders have to love and care for the people on the margins and those people are always the Blackest and or most Queer of the Black folk in any community. I’m running against an incumbent and a system that has consistently and systematically disregarded us. In the journey for inclusionism I often talk about the spiritual power of universality and the indemnification of people for all of their inputs to society, but the most dangerous thing that we could do as a society, is to fail to reconcile with those of us who have been exploited as capital and neglected as citizens for our entire existence. Creating a system where American Descendants of Slaves and Black identifying people (including Haitian, African, and Afro-Latinx people) are made whole for historical and modern attacks on their humanity is central to my focus in the national capital.


New York and many other states are legalizing recreational use of marijuana and as they do, we have to have regulations that ensure that the systemic effects of criminalizing both buyers and sellers for so long must be reversed. It's a daunting task but JFK is endorsing a movement to rise to legalize in New York and taking those New York values to DC.

  • Structurally reinvest profits from marijuana businesses back into the community.
  • Expand access to medical marijuana programs into communities of color and align with universal healthcare reforms.
  • Provide business opportunities and capital investment for women and minority owned businesses.
  • Create a sustainable workforce through the development of urban agribusiness development.
  • Develop community based education initiatives through CBOs (community based organizations)
  • Expunge the records of non-violent offenders of antiquated laws from the "war on drugs" era.

Climate | Green New Deal

The Green New Deal includes investments not only in communities and public infrastructure, but also in private industry to enable a sweeping transformation of our entire economy – with the public receiving appropriate ownership stakes and returns on its investments. The plan calls on and enables our whole society to participate in a single great national aim: the rapid transition to a forward-looking society of broad opportunity, equal justice, productive prosperity, and environmental sustainability.

  • Achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers;
  • Create millions of good, high-wage jobs; and ensure prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States;
  • Invest in the infrastructure and industry of the United States to sustainably meet the challenges of the 21st century;
  • Secure clean air and water, climate and community resilience, healthy food, access to nature, and a sustainable environment for all;
  • Promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing the historic oppression of frontline and vulnerable communities.
A national mobilization of the size and scale of the Green New Deal presents an unprecedented opportunity to not only combat the climate crisis, but also to eliminate poverty in the United States and to make wealth, prosperity, and security available to every person who participates in the transition. Thus, the goals of the Green New Deal represent both what is needed to effectively address climate change and what is needed to transform our current economy to one that is just, prosperous, and sustainable for all Americans.

Cyber Jobs

The world is a supply-chain. As an engineer, JFK knows people's personal data is the natural resource with which we build all of the technological infrastructure of our lives. Like all infrastructure you require reinvestment to ensure that you are sustainable. Tech Zones and Cyber Zones are two distinctly different types of equity building initiatives that stop the extraction of people's value by institutions and start reinvesting in the people who have given so much to the current economy. These are initiatives that are separate from the work in the Green New Deal, and specific to non-green technologies.

  • Fintech (Financial Technology)
  • Gene therapy
  • Drones
  • Self-driving cars
  • Drugs and medical devices
  • Cyber Security
  • InsurTech (Insurance Technology)
  • RegTech (Regulatory Monitoring)
  • AdTech (Advertising Monitoring)
These two investment initiatives are no different than when Americans invested in creating the interstate system. We will make the investment from tax payer dollars and take the ROI (return on investment) as a measure of how many financial/consumer transactions people can make using this new workforce infrastructure. Technological progress in the U.S. is stagnant. America’s technological stagnation is responsible for both the decay of our global technological leadership and the increasing concentration of industry in a few geographical hotspots. Our burdensome and increasingly outdated federal regulatory system bears some responsibility for this slowdown. The modern American administrative state was built during an era in which most innovations came from large, slow-moving corporations, at times in conjunction with the government. But this is no longer the case, and as the nature of innovation changes, so too must our regulatory system. Reversing course requires a bold, new regulatory framework. My thoughts: These two investment initiatives are different than economic empowerment zones, because they won't be complete tax breaks for new companies to come into the area without an equitable dividend on productivity created from our investment. More dense populations of people, like New York City will benefit from these "zones", but they can be applies to regions where more space is necessary for enterprise to thrive. "One of the most dangerous things we can do as Americans is invest again in huge companies like we did in GM & Tesla after the 2008 crisis without keeping a dividend on their prolific productivity". - JFK


American leadership and innovation will require investment in people — our children, our workers, our veterans, and our seniors for continued education. A degree alone is not a golden ticket in the 21st Century. That’s why we’re fighting to:

  • Make Pre-K a free standard.
  • Increase techers income with a $13,000/year Basic Income for and equity stake of their input to everyone's productivity. This is a separate income from my UBI proposal.
  • Making tuition free at public colleges and universities.
  • Leverage Community Colleges to fill the skills gap.
  • Stop privatizing school through the expansion of charters. they should be innovators not standards.
  • Eliminate student debt for victims of predatory lending.
  • Substantially cut student loan rates.
  • Create a Student Exchange program to incentivize students from Urban, Suburban, and Rural areas to attend schools in more foreign locations within the US.
  • Federally fund digital skills programs that are successful across new york and america.
  • Tax capital and financial market transactions to pay for education.
My Thoughts The 20th Century was successful for American (aside from WWII) because of over overhaul of investment in people through education at all levels. We have to look at the social good as a measure of our ability to increase and enhance literacy across all demographics. I also think that we have to lead the world in education foreign citizens, as our ability to export American ideals of autonomy and choice through education is the best way to export our stances on the human rights of the individual. I like to call these stances Inclusionism, and they are simply that people have an intrinsic value and that we must honor that morally and economically.

Medicare For All

America has the highest healthcare costs of the developed world. without our health we are nothing.​ That's why we're fighting for:

  • A universal way of billing
  • A better brand than "single-payer". medical expertise is not aid and it's not just care. it's essential to our nature. Single-payer sounds like someone who couldn't get a date to the movies 🤑 .
  • Acknowledgement that healthcare is a human right.
  • Acknowledgement that all health data is personal data.
  • JFK would support Bernie Sanders and any series of bills to get closer to Bernie's plan.
My Thoughts: Healthcare is not a product or an option, it is an infrastructureal must. America has built a system where socialized versions of healthcare have been proped up via corporations for nearly a century, and now the complexity of those systems is too complex to reign in. That stated, I am 100% in support of systems that help Government gain the confidence of an segmented society in order to make healthcare inclusive and about care. I haven't published an extensive healthcare policy platform, because I'm not running for President, and that would be a ridiculous waste of time. My values are rooted in inclusionism, which I outline in detail on this campaign website. I'd encourage everyone to give it a look. I'm a vote towards universality.

Human Rights

America has to remain at the forefront of human rights priorities, in order to claim moral leadership while scaling international peace. We must protect personhood and choice above everything else.​

  • We're fighting to ensure that:
  • White supremacy never trumps the civil rights of anyone.
  • All women's rights are rooted in prioritizing their choices.
  • Pay equity means a leveled playing field for people of male female and trans experience.
  • ​LGBTQ rights are rooted in prioritizing their choices.
  • Freedom of religion cannot warrant discrimination.
  • Ownership of personal data is with the individual contributor.


America is a product of immigrants, warlords, and slaves. It is immoral to deny the world access to the freedoms and ideals of our melting pot. ​That's why we're fighting to:

  • Dismantle inhumane deportation programs and detention centers.
  • Pave the way for a swift and fair legislative roadmap to citizenship for the eleven million undocumented immigrants.
  • Ensure our border remains secure while respecting local communities.
  • Regulate the future flow of immigrants by modernizing the visa system and rewriting bad trade agreements.
  • Enhance access to justice and reverse the criminalization of immigrants.

Data Bill of Rights

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and after four years of preparation and debate the GDPR was finally approved by the EU (European Union) Parliament on 14 April 2016. It was enforced on 25 May 2018 – and organisations that are not compliant could now face heavy fines. The GDPR has sister legislation across the globe including Singapore's Personal Dat Protection Regulation. JFK has been at the center of all international relations and policy design for data protection over the past ten (10) years. In public speeches he regularly states "our digital lives are not separate from our lives, and as that is a fact, all international relations must include thought leadership on digital barriers or sovereignty by the individual, institution, and state." JFK was first to establish a Data Bill of Rights outline based on language he lobbied in data protection regulations in the US and abroad. When in office we will finally have the leadership to establish American regulations that lead the world again. We can do better than Europe & Asia's GDPR by harnessing the American ethic to autonomy & ownership. That's what JFK calls Inclusionism.

  • The Right to Data Erasure: or to be forgotten.
  • The Right to Data Portability: or to move either originals or copies.
  • The Right to Data Restrictive Processing: or decide how analytics are leveraged.
  • The Right to Data Education: or acquiring knowledge and skills needed to make decisions.
  • The Right to Data Redress: or receive a fair settlement of just claims against processors.
  • The Right to Data Ownership: or possession of property, regardless of the processors.

Gun Control

Gun Control is presented as a complex issue, but I think that it is more about the process with which we bring departments together to protect our communities. In congress I would enforce the following holistic approach through a licensing program that surveys:

  • Permitting
  • Domestic Violence
  • Background Checks
  • Minimum Wage
  • Mental Illness
  • Drug Abuse
  • Criminal History
  • Military History (both domestic and foreign)
My Thoughts: So many people feel hopeless about their ability to affect change with regards to run access and rights. I've lived in multiple states where carrying a concealed weapon has been permitted and where it has not. I'm not anti-gun and I've been to the range as a child and adult to understand the power and responsibility of carrying arms. It is a responsibility that no child or teacher or concert goer or random pedestrian should have to worry about. They especially shouldn't have to worry about their neighbor who is having a bad go of life stripping them of their autonomy or choice to live. We need aggressive gun and insurance laws that exceed that of automobile laws, because the risks are too high. My data driven holistic approach is an effort to prevent the people who pull triggers from ever getting close to one.

Stop Police Violence

In the continued fight for criminal justice reform, JFK is dedicated to doing something impactful about the number of lives, especially Black, Brown, and Queer lives being taken at the hands of officers of the law. On a trip to Schenectady, NY, with the widow of Andrew Kearse, a man who was allowed to die while crying out for medical help recorded by officer's dash-cam, he confirmed the types of inhumane conduct that he grew up accustomed to in Detroit. With the Andrew Kearse Act, we demand:

  • A camera on every cop
  • Prosecute officers who falsify information during an investigation
  • Mandatory and immediate medical response for suspects/subjects who complain of illness or injury
  • Reinstate American incarcerated and formerly incarcerated citizens right to vote
  • Establish national day of remembrance for victims of police violence
  • Create comprehensive national database of shootings, including police shootings
  • Establish an independent unit of investigators and prosecutors for all police shootings of civilians
My Thoughts: The core problem here is that citizens are having their dignity stripped away from them when engaging with law enforcement at the local, state, and federal level. The pervasive fear and lack of trust has tons of less sophisticated nations who fail to keep their democracy in the fashion that Benjamin Franklin told his fellow American's they'd have to keep. The solution is transparency, and creating more jobs for compassionate citizens to jockey for the public's trust as a measure of real justice. The solution is also restoring human rights to all humans, even those in violation of the law.

Universal Basic Ownership (Income)

With New York & American values in mind, JFK would implement a Universal Basic Income (UBI), the ‘American Value Act', starting at $1,000/month ($12,000 a year) for every American adult. This will be independent of Americans' work status or any other factor including incarceration. JFK has worked his entire career to structure laws for this moment of properly distributing equity to the American people as a measure of their input to the productivity of the economy. This UBI is not a tax.

  • This UBI is a corporate productivity dividend, similarly to a joint-stock company it's not an expense, it's an after tax profit among stakeholders.
  • This is a fraction of one's derived input to economic productivity. American's community of data is the core input to all corporate productivity.
A UBI is a commencement of economic inclusion. This level would permanently grow the economy's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) between 12% - 13% or about $2.5 trillion by 2025—and it would increase the labor force by 4.5 to 4.7 million people. It should be noted that the GDP is actually a measure of economic transaction and still how we derive overall economic health. Putting money into the hands of people is how to guarantee their choice with social autonomy in the market. It is not socialism it is inclusionism for people who are owed capital: #WeOweUs My Thoughts: Consider this simple logic with me. In 2019 corporate America will produce ~ 7.2 Trillion Dollars in profits. When I write productivity, I'm talking about revenues. Profits are after expenses of sorts. From those profits ~ 25% will go into savings for reinvestment and ~ 75% will be paid out in a dividend to shareholders of those corporations. That's ~ 5.4 Trillion Dollars. It pays to own something, and we owe it to ourselves to demand half, so that we can reinvest in us. That's why I saw "We Owe Us". My approach to UBI is about ownership. By granting everyone's community and equity stake in the data that is mined from their individuals to produce the products & services that are productive, we are effectively creating a new class of stakeholdership to parallel shareholders. I'm convinced that this is how we start fixing the poor distribution of value in this economy and influence the world towards a more democratic future. This is what my Data Dividend is all about.

Voting Reform | Quadratic Voting

Quadratic voting (sometimes abbreviated QV) is a collective decision-making procedure, where participants express how strongly they feel about an issue rather than just whether they are in favor of it or opposed to it. Quadratic voting is claimed to achieve the greatest possible good for the greatest number of group members, although other proponents of Quadratic Voting state that this is only true approximately. It addresses issues of voting paradox and majority-rule. Based on market principles, each voter is endowed with a budget of “vote credits” that they may spend influencing the outcome of a range of decisions. If a participant has a strong preference for or against a particular decision, additional votes can be allocated. A vote pricing rule determines the cost of additional votes, whereby each vote increasingly becomes more expensive.​ The quadratic nature of the voting means that a voter can use his or her votes more efficiently spread across many issues. For example, a voter with a budget of 16 vote credits can apply 1 vote credit to each of 16 issues. However, if they feel strongly about a single issue, they can apply 4 votes at the cost of 16 credits to a single issue. This will use their entire budget. This also means there is a large incentive to buy and sell votes, although using a strictly secret ballot gives some protection against vote buying as the purchase cannot be verified. My Thoughts: The problem of our democracy today is that the priorities of leaders don't match the priorities of the people. In turn we have less democratic operations than we previously did when Ben Franklin stated that American's have "a Republic if you can keep it". I think that We Owe Us a democracy and that stated, more democracy as out population and complexity increases. Quadratic Voting is the most innovative way that I've seen trigger my favorite term inclusionism through the weight of individual priority versus leadership's oratory.

Blockchain dot gov

The world is a supply-chain, but our government isn't. As an engineer, JFK has implemented workforce security technologies locally and internationally under the guise of age old business process methodologies like Lean Process Management, Six Sigma and Information Technology Information Library. Process is key in supporting a more democratic government so that both constituents and watchdogs can peer in to the government that they are paying for. This is a step towards true "open data" initiatives of the Federal government. In order for departments to open up their bureaucracy, they'll have to have some reassurances that they can meet the quality standards set by their constituents. After doing the work of mapping out the business processes that guide our government, it will be necessary to add technologies of transparency, so to ensure that open data can continue to evolve and become more robust. Blockchain on top of good processes is our opportunity. We can leverage the business consulting industry to assist the Federal government to transform how it operates while ensuring that there are jobs mandated for the people who contributed their processes initially. We don't want to automate people, we want to automate with people and pay them for the pleasure while legislating the following:

  • Lean Process Management
  • Lean Six Sigma
  • Building of Service Catalogs
  • Implementation of Transparency Measures
  • Implementation of Blockchain Technologies
  • Enhance Democracy by Allowing Public Vetting of Processes.
My thoughts: As an engineer, I have worked from inside city, state, and federal governments all over the world to implement business process designs that keep them current with the technological and business culture of our times. The US government and its federal of smaller governmental entities are poorly equipped to conduct a risk assessment of their assets and ready them for threats of extreme and other sorts. We can do better, and the best part is that it will create tons of jobs to try and do better. One of the earliest things I could create in congress is a bill to sure of governmental department functionality and insource talent from the best functioning private sector players to expand the business that is our government.

Criminal Justice Reform

Justice reform means creating a system where it is attainable. JFK thinks that it is an outrage that while acts of injustice are down historically, that the repetition of injustice, now viewable on social media are now arguably more traumatic that their precedessors. While we felt that this topic needs to be addreses separately rom the others, actual policies that affect criminal justice can be further elaborated in other areas on our policy ieas. Dismantling our carceral state:

  • End for-profit prisons and jails.
  • End the “cash bail” system.
  • Legalize marijuana at the federal level.
  • Appropriate federal funds for more drug treatment and mental health facilities in lieu of jail.
  • Establish a federal review board within the Department of Justice for all officer-involved shootings.
  • Enact legislation that establishes a national, federally funded program to train police officers in de-escalation tactics, techniques, and procedures.
  • End the “1033” Program which allows local police departments to procure surplus military equipment.
  • Reinvestment in felon re-entry for the nearly +25 million Americans have felony convictions.

National Security

“Progressives don’t talk about national security enough” and as those reasons can take many forms, JFK is prepared to offer a series of stances that require our attention in a 21st century where the world is ever more interconnected and risks are even more shared.

  • Establish formal assertions of our active Cold Cyber Wars
  • We must lead in establish international diplomacy around digital transactions
  • We must lead in establish global standards for digital human rights
  • We must “come out” as corrupt in socio-economic areas to lead other nation/states through discovery and recovery
  • We must hold all human rights nearest and dearest, even when it threatens our comfort
My Thoughts: National security starts with data rights. The world is being broken down into data points. Life itself is being broken down into data points. If the 19th Century was about Empires, and the 20th Century was about Nation States, and the 21st Century is about Cities, the 22nd Century will be about interconnected communities without borders taht question sovereignty based on culture. As leaders we must have a long term view of where the world is going and how to manage the reconciliation and peace of those places, aside from what we are experiencing today. Foreign relations are wholly about reconciliation and should not be reserved for the dichotomy of war and peace times. We should always be scaling our ability to reconcile our differences to add more character to what actually binds us together. Further, our national security interests are more about spreading our culture of classical progressivism (not meant in the modern political stance) to a world that is becoming increasingly hostile to forced integration; forced per climate change, forced per economic change and forced per political change. Our moral objectives to preserve these progressive values of autonomy and choice and even freedom for all people must be at the core of our insistence to defeat both nationalism and communism as alternatives to an open and integrated society that is both increasingly inclusive and equitable for all. I thnk that we achieve this by giving more people ownership of the productive property that drives each individual economy. We have to tie our moral objectives to some tangible distribution of buy-in. That's results in ownership of sorts across the PEST (political economic sociological and technological) spectrum. I call it Inclusionism.

Housing For All

In urban and rural cities New Yorkers are showing New York values by fighting for the rights of residents to live with dignity and free from fear. Our Housing Justice for All campaign is fighting for a legislative agenda that would stabilize neighborhoods and eliminate the control that corporate landlords have over housing in New York State, but our JFK Organizers are taking it to Washington DC because these are broader American state issues, and yet another opportunity for progressive New Yorkers to lead.

  • Fully Fund Federal Housing and NYCHA (NYC Housing Authority), prioritized in a democratic way using TAs (Tenant Associations).
  • Pass new “good cause” eviction legislation
  • Eliminate permanent rent hikes caused by major capital improvements
  • Rent control relief, as a measure of the local Universal Basic Income.
  • Investment to end homelessness in each state, starting with New York.
My Thoughts: As Americans move to cities like NYC, LA, CHI, ATL, HOU, PHL, and others homelessness becomes a nationwide crisis. New York’s rental affordability crisis, combined with a lack of state action and federal support has resulted in a rapid expansion of homelessness. There are over 89,000 homeless people living across New York – a number that has increased 36% since 2010. Homelessness has declined nationwide but continues to spike if big cities like LA and the others mentioned. We've got to invest where the people live.
