    Why a torch? Because we are the party bearing the light forward. We believe that our brighter days lie ahead, not that we’ve arrived to the pinnacle of greatness

    It’s not that I think the Speaker is a bad man or that he’s unfit to lead. I just think his policies are wrong. It’s ok to disagree. But I plan on working WITH the party opposite. If Republicans put up good bills, I’ll be more than willing to give them credit

    Ward Takes Questions at Townhall in Pittsburgh

    Yes ma’am I’d be glad to. We have had teachers for years say they need funding for facilities and higher pay. I’d like to see our schools funded so that they can do that. This isn’t an issue that individual states can solve, this is an every state issue. Republicans passed No Child Left Behind which set funding according to test scores. Well anyone with half a brain can tell you that when you take money away from schools that need improvement, your making the problem worse. It’s the old adage “it’s the math stupid”. Well that failed. We turned out some really good test takers and stressed out teachers, but we hurt our schools that were underperforming. I believe we should teach our students to be functioning adults. We should be preparing them for life, not test taking. Now, some Republicans are suggesting that we need to take more money out of the system and give it to private schools or religious schools. I’m a Christian and think religious schools serve a great purpose. But I don’t want public tax dollars going to fund religious schools. I also don’t want to pay corporations out of public funds to teach our kids. It’s the same idea of a toll road. We have great roads in this country. Not perfect. But go to Haiti or a third world country and see how great our roads are compared to those. If you want to drive on a private toll road, that’s fine. But public money shouldn’t go to private enterprise and we shouldn’t be funding corporate education

    Ward: Better Together

    Calvin Ward From a speech in Dearborn, MI ”One of my proudest moments in Congress was what we accomplished with bipartisan healthcare. We showed that when we set aside the squabbles and stop acting like one party has a monopoly on the good ideas. There’s been good bills come from the Republican Party. I’ve never been afraid to show that I’m bipartisan. I want to work across the aisle as often as possible. I want bipartisan bills debated. We do better when we work together. As President, my goal will be to work with our colleagues, not ram bills down their throat.” View full PR

    Tony I have to admit, it’s a great feeling. Usually Arkansas gets discounted. We’re small, rural. Most folks see a Southern Democrat like a spotted elephant these days. But there’s a lot of folks from Arkansas that some of y’all up here can relate to. In my state, we have farmers who get up before dawn and they work the rice fields or cotton all day the same way steel workers and factory workers work from sun up to sundown every day. The concerns are the same: are my kids getting a good education? Am I going to be able to put food on the table? What happens to my family if something happens to me. This is why I believe that government works best when it works for everybody. Government isn’t a pest to swat, and anyone who says that ought not get involved. I’m not talking about doing nothing. But I’m not talking about government doing everything either. People ought to work hard. But we owe it to the American people not be do nothings but to be active and help this country

    A Place of Hope

    Calvin Ward Excerpt from a speech in Detroit, MI. “I have met many people in my time campaigning in this great country. I’ve seen more people than I ever have before. But I’m being asked a question from so many average Americans, “Are you afraid of what will happen to the country if Speaker Macmillan wins?” The plain answer is no. No I’m not. Because the Speaker isn’t this big bad boogeyman, he’s a human being. He’s not incompetent, to say so would be slanderous and lying. It’s not that he’s a bad man, he just has bad ideas. We disagree about the direction to go. But do not vote for me out of fear. Fear makes us do irrational things. Fear causes us to believe that banning Muslims is a good idea. Fear causes us to be afraid of Hispanics. Fear causes us to turn inside ourselves and ignore our allies. When we lash out in fear, we’re focused on surviving, not growing. But I reject fear, and instead embrace Hope. Not the “flip a coin and see what happens” form of hope. But rather a hope that calls us to love those who have lost their homes. It’s the hope of a new dad, saying “this little girl is my second chance. Part of me yet without all the mistakes.” It’s the hope of farmers who know that hard work pays off. That when things go sideways, it’s time to roll up the sleeves and push harder. It’s the hope of children, going to school and growing as people. So we embrace hope, not fear. We choose to believe that there is a better America and a brighter day than one we stand in today. We choose Hope” View full PR

    So you’ll join me in a pledge to not accept any PAC money?

    CalvinWard4America

    You didn’t answer the question about PAC money so is that an evasion or just ignoring it?

    Also sir Mold

    CalvinWard4America

    And the PAC money??
  21. Jsawrie

    CalvinWard4America

    And yet. We have one. Also, it’s easy have funding when you get bailed out by the establishment and take PAC money. Just saying

    “We’ll release our platform....eventually” You’ve had the entire primaries to lay out solid plans sir. With all due respect, ribs don’t take that long to smoke
