Rodolfo Barragan, PhD running for Congress
A lifelong Democrat, Rodolfo left the party after 2016, when it became clear that the Democratic Party is a party that is owned by the same corporations that own the Republican Party. It's time for new political parties in this country. Rodolfo supports the full repeal of the Patriot Act, which is actually an anti-Constitutional takeover of Americans' 4th Amendment rights. He also supports the abolishment of the CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI, and all prisons. We are supposed to be "the land of the free"—but these institutions conspire against that.
