New Party, Presidential Candidate rising in Utah

Uprooting Entrenchment, a shift citizens crave
Excerpt, editing by Carolyn Bennett

As a nation, “we have been voting against our own interests year after year. …

Most Americans — whether they consider themselves on the right, left, center, whatever — understand that their interests have been undermined by these folks in Washington, both in the White House and in Congress, who are acting as if they’re on retainer with their largest campaign contributors rather than doing what's in the public's interest.…
“(Americans) want to see an alternative party. They recognize that these two militarist corporatist parties have brought us to this disastrous place where we are today.”

Rocky Anderson of Utah was giving a radio interview.

Anderson has organized the Justice Party and has filed paperwork for a presidential exploratory committee. Now the party enters the process of getting on election ballots nationwide where criteria vary from state to state.

Rocky (Ross C.) Anderson has championed national and international causes including climate protection, immigration reform, restorative criminal justice, GLBT rights, and an end to the ‘war on drugs’; and before and after the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, Anderson was a leading opponent of the invasion and occupation of Iraq and related human rights abuses.

Anderson was the only mayor of a major U.S. city (Salt Lake City, Utah) to advocate impeachment of President George W. Bush, which he did in many venues throughout the United States.

Executive Director of High Road for Human Rights, Rocky Anderson was a two-term mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah (2000-2008) and before that he practiced law in Salt Lake City and during a 21-year law practice was listed in Best Lawyers in America (rated A-V, highest rating) by Martindale-Hubbell and was chair of the Utah State Bar Litigation Section. Anderson was also Editor-in-Chief of and a contributor to Voir Dire legal journal.

High Road for
Human Rights
In forming the Justice Party, Anderson said in the Wednesday interview on KSL Radio’s Doug Wright Show, “The people are the ones who always bring about major change in this country and we need to provide that power to people throughout the country.”

Anderson reportedly sees the Justice Party as “a grassroots movement that over the long term will bring about the shift in American politics that citizens crave.”

Waking those dissatisfied with status quo

KSL reports Anderson saying he intends his campaign “to attract disenchanted members of both parties and independents.”

I just hope we can be involved in the debate because if we don’t we’re just going to be hearing a bunch of sound bites from people who, between their two parties, have colluded in so many ways in serving the interests of their campaign contributors, the wealthy and the powerful.…

The middle class has been decimated … [In the past decade], outrageous, expensive wars have wasted lives and tax dollars.… The government has driven up the deficit while cutting taxes for those most capable of paying taxes. … Leaders have failed to provide affordable, essential health care for all Americans.

[But if we] put together passion and organization, we can overcome any of these candidates who have all the money but really lack ideas.” [dromboy@ksl.com]
