LUIS GUTIÉRREZ
for PRESIDENT

We believe that America is never greater than when we protect the rights we have won, and strive to make real the call of our founders to create a more perfect union. We are never more American than when we demand that all people are treated with dignity and respect. We are never more patriotic than when we see a group of people being cast aside and demand the aggressors to stop. In America, we do not tolerate anyone being treated unfairly. We are truly American when we live up to our original promise of liberty and celebrate those quintessentially American words, "all men are created equal."

My friends, America faces a stark choice.  Immigrants, children, workers, teachers, the people that make our country so diverse and awe inspiring need bold, progressive leadership in the white house. Their future will be decided by whoever comes on top in the Presidential race.

For these reasons, I announce my candidacy for President of the United States.

Now, the road will be long and tough. We must work hard and diligently to win this primary. We must knock on every door, call every voter, and organize our voters to come out and win this for our immigrants, our working class, and our children. We have the capability to create real, substantive change in this country, we have the resources to overcome these obstacles and fight for common sense progressive values, we can accomplish these things, but I need your support.

If you feel that the working class should be able to move up in this society, join us! If you feel that children and our young people should have access to a free, world class education, join us! If you feel that our immigrants should have an easier pathway to citizenship, join us!

We can do the impossible, as we've shown time and time before. America is the birthplace of technological innovation; the internet, something which was once thought of as impossible. Americans created the automobile, people could only dream of that technology. America landed a man on the moon, something no man fifty years prior would have imagined possible.

My friends, mis amigos, we can accomplish anything if we're united in our causes...and we're going to stand united as one people, as one America.

Thank you and God bless!

Quote from: Excerpt from speech
The current Republican congress has blocked so many things that would be so beneficial to our most vulnerable Americans. From cutting food stamps to refusing to extend unemployment benefits has hurt our working class far too much while aiding the most wealthy Americans. The fact that they're putting preference for their donors over their real constituents is saddening. I will fight for our hard working people, not those who already have it made.

Quote from: Advertisement
We have shown throughout our history that we can overcome obstacles and achieve the impossible in this great country. We were the country that fought for public education. We were the country that landed a man on the moon. We were the country that claimed independence from the strongest empire in the world.

We have shown time and time again that we can achieve the impossible, and, for that reason, I ask you to join me in my bid to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

We will fight for education reform. We will fight income inequality. We will work tirelessly to bring our country into a new golden age, where no family will have to choose between paying the electric bill or the food bill, where no high school graduate will have to abandon their dreams of going to college, where no family must be split apart because they had dreams for their kids and decided to come to our country.

With your support...we can achieve the impossible.

-Rally in Iowa City, IA
Quote
We cannot return to the Republican policies of the past. We cannot roll back regulations on corporations, cut funding from schools, raise taxes on the middle and working classes and lower it on the rich. Those policies were the ones that led us to the great recession, and I'll do whatever it takes to make sure that we keep funding for our kids, that we give a fair shot to middle and working class families to move up in this country. This election will determine our future, and I hope you stand with me and fight for the ones who are most vulnerable in our society.

Quote from: Interview
Look, I've got all the respect in the world for SOS Clinton, but the fact of the matter is that progressives need a real choice in this election. One that is proven to win and dig inroads to various constituencies, and I believe I am the one to do that.
