I want to inspire America to take anew path, a different direction.
I envision an America which has the capacityto reconnect with the heart of the world; anAmerica which proceeds in the worldoptimistically and courageously. An Americawhich understands that the world isinterdependent, that it is inter-connected, andthat what we do today impacts futuregenerations.I want to break the shackles of fear whichhave deprived our citizens of rights. We needto change the way this country valueshumanity, so that instead of fear and lies, wecan live our lives based on principles of peaceand hope. We need to regain the trust of theAmerican people and we need to have agovernment which trusts the American people.It's time for America to resume its glorious journey; time to reject shrinking jobs andwages, disappearing savings and rights; timeto reject the detour towards fear and greed. It'stime to look out upon the world for friends,not enemies; time to counter the control of corporations over our politics, our economy,our resources, and mass media.It's time for those who have much to helpthose who have little, by maintaining a progressive tax structure. It's time to tell theworld that we wish to be their partner in peace, not their leader in war. Most of all, it istime for America to again be the land wheredreams come true, because the government ison the side of its people.Dennis J. Kucinich

1. Universal Health CareDennis Kucinich is the only PresidentialCandidate with a plan for a UniversalSingle Payer, NOT FOR PROFITHealthcare system.MEDICARE FOR ALLThe plan in embodied in HR 676 theConyers-Kucinich bill, written by DennisKucinich & John ConyersThe plan covers all healthcare needs,including dental care, mental health care,vision care, prescription drugs, and long-term care - at NO extra cost!Kucinich's plan, HR 676, is supported by 78Members of Congress, 250 Union Locals,and 14,000 physicians and is endorsed bythe New Hampshire Democratic Party. 
"Health care is an essential safeguard of human life and dignity and there is anobligation for society to ensure that every person be able to realize this right." 
Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, ChicagoArchdioceseOur health care system is broken, and H.R.676, the Conyers-Kucinich bill, is the onlycomprehensive solution to the problem. It isalso the system endorsed by more than 14,000 physicians from Physicians for a NationalHealth Program. Nearly 46 million Americanshave no health care and over 40 million morehave only minimal coverage. In 2005 some41% of moderate and middle incomeAmericans went without health care for part of the year. Even more shocking is that 53% of those earning less than $20,000 went withoutinsurance for all of 2005. In fact, the NationalAcademy of Science's Institute of Medicineestimates that 18,000 Americans die each year  because they have no health insurance.The American health system is quite sick.Pulitzer Prize journalists Donald Barlett andJames Steele, in their stunning analysis of thehealth care industry, Critical Condition (2006Broadway Books), insist that "... U.S. healthcare is second-rate at the start of the twenty-first century and destined to get a lot worseand much more expensive." Considering thefollowing facts from Tom Daschle's article for the Center for American Progress: "PayingMore but Getting Less: Myths and the GlobalCase for U.S. Health Reform":
Americans are The Healthiest Peoplein the World.
FACT:
Citizens of 34 nations livelonger than Americans.
The U.S. is the Best Place to Get Sick.
FACT:
The World Health Organizationranked the U.S. 37th in the world for health system performance. Countrieslike Australia and the United Kingdomrank above the U.S. Americans havelower odds of surviving colorectalcancer and childhood leukemia than3
