The United States of America has historically been an economic superpower and an innovator of technology. We harnessed electricity, invented the light-bulb and the television, but what have we produced lately?
The United States is in dire danger as we are being surpassed by other countries on the industrial front. We developed the first railroad system, but China, Germany, and Japan are developing trains that float with no moving parts. We industrialized around the steam and internal combustion engines, but remain stuck in high gear on fossil fuels. Meanwhile the international community is closing in on energy production through fusion, and guess where the first operating plant is being built -- not in the U.S.A. The Chinese are gearing up to clean our clock economically with no oil dependence at all.
Other countries are now surpassing the United States with innovation. We need to have the courage to reverse this trend.
This site is not intended to be an official pronouncement of policy endorsed by Pete Ashdown. Instead, it is public forum where we, the public, can create what we feel is good policy. Each page can be edited by you or anyone else, and each edit is tracked, so Pete and anyone else can view all changes and input to each discussion, no matter what content gets changed or overwritten. Pete (and his campaign staff) monitor these pages to help keep vandalism out, and Pete uses the input from these pages to form his official policy, which can be found on his official campaign web site at http://pashdown.org/issues.
