My name is Angel Sides. I am a teacher and activist. I am running for the House of Representatives. 
     The issues that effect all issues are: to get big money out of politics, election integrity and our corrupted media. I have produced political commentries on how corrupted our media is for the last 10 years.  The only independent media left in our country is Free Speech tv. It is on Satellite television and livestreams online. PBS is no longer independent and NPR is now underwritten by corporations. This is scary and in my opinion; Orwellian.        Secondly, concerning election integrity, there were large discrepancies in the exit polls and the election outcomes during the 2016 Presidential Democratic Primary. When law suits were threatened, the media then announced they would just cancel the remaining exit polls and many states did not have exit polls!! We need to move to hand ballots and hand counted ballots. We also need rank choice voting, where a voters second choice will count, if the first choice was not a viable candidate. I am asking groups from District 13 to go in and talk to their County Clerk about participating in an audit of the upcoming primary elections. We need to move to hand ballots and hand counted ballots.
     Lastly, concerning big money in politics, there has been a group of Americans that have been fighting to get big money out of politics. I joined them and  much like Martin Luther King, hundreds of us were arrested during Democracy Springs. I was proud to be arrested along side Wolf Pack, Code Pink and TYT. Go to Move To Amend and sign the petition.
     I support expanding Medicare (HR 676). HR 676 saves the average family of four, four thousand dollars a year.  It eliminates the middle man (the greedy insurance companies) and retrains the workers within the new system. The CEO's make over 160 million dollars/yr while everyone's premiums sky rocket! This is the big money I was arrested for... insurance companies lobby congress and get laws put in place to make themselves more money. It has got to stop and it has no place in our healtcare system!! Call Dick Durbin and ask him to cosponsor HR 676. (217-492-4062)
     Also, issues that are dear to my heart are to address global warming (federal environmental jobs program) and the continual radiation leaking from nuclear power plants and the threat of nuclear annihilation from nuclear weaponry.
     The upcoming primary is March 20th and all funds will be used to inform the public of the information just described by going door to door, commercials, emails and mail outs.
     No matter what happens on March 20th, I will be so grateful to be able to inform the community, perhaps even influence Dick Durbin and or other candidates. Information can change our community and our world.  God Bless the people of Illinois!!
