Palmer’s Pillars

Presidential candidates are lucky if they are remembered for one thing. On rare occasions, presidents can accomplish three significant things during their presidencies. Our administration has much more ambition than that. Our federal government needs a serious upgrade–in so many areas. The following three pillars of our strategy, with 25 policy focus areas, will be expanded with more detail over the coming months as we build our team and movement. As these pillars inspire you, we invite you to Join Us.

1. Conscious Capitalism

Over my thirty-year career, I’ve had the honor of working with thousands of entrepreneurs and tens of thousands of small business owners. I firmly believe in the power of small businesses and mission-driven founders to make the world a better place, regardless of tax status. Inspiring leaders who make the world a better place start and run for-profit companies, non-profits, and other forms of organization. Small businesses are the lifeblood of the US economy—according to the Small Business Administration, small businesses account for 67% of U.S. job creation.

2. People First: The New Talent Economy

Together, we can rebuild and upgrade the American Dream. In tech circles we call this process a “2.0 iteration”. Ours will be a multi-partisan effort that incorporates the best ideas and people from all corners of the political spectrum: Democratic, Libertarian, Progressive and Conservative. There is no “us” versus “them” in this vision. We will work together for the common good—even when we disagree. Our campaign will be positive, focused on inspiring and engaging young people. Our goal will be to move the Democratic Party toward becoming more pro-freedom, pro-liberation, pro-innovation, pro-growth, and pro-technology.

3. Modernizing the U.S. Government

Our government is highly dysfunctional and needs a major upgrade. Bureaucracy has been built upon bureaucracy, and the vast majority of laws and processes haven’t been upgraded for decades. We need a turnaround leader. My administration plans to dramatically reform our federal government by overhauling our federal government’s human resource function and attracting top talent from business and industry to a new calling in public service. Our goal will be to transform the federal government to run more like a high-tech, highly-efficient, well-respected business that puts its customers’ needs first.
