DescriptionPARTY OVERVIEW

The Cool Moose party is dead set on "breaking down the ideological barriers that have kept common sense out of our government," and their candidate, Robert J. Healey, Jr., means to do this by shaking Rhode Island loose from its entrenched two-party system. The views of the party are outlined in detail on the official site, but they never answer the question that burns our curiosity the most. Why the moose? Is Rhode Island some hotbed of moose habitat and we just don't know it?

SOCIAL CONCERNS

Social policy is best made without the involvement of government. This does not mean that the government has no role in the determination of social policy, but it means that a government's role, when appropriate, should be well defined, explicit as to its implementation, and with a predetermined point at which such a role will achieve its objective and cease. The failure to provide defined outcomes for social policy has made government involvement in social areas a political game rather than a worthy endeavor. Based on these principles, the Cool Moose Party supports the following legislation: Welfare reform, Abortion, Gambling, Minority rights, Crime, Public health, The Rhode Island lottery, The judiciary, Political parties, Banking, The legislature, Elections, Quasi-public agencies, Local government, State government, Federal government, Ethics, Arts, Environment, Fisheries and aquaculture, Energy, Historic preservation, Libraries, Solid waste, Insurance, Labor, Health care and related matters, Transportation, Constitution, Taxation, Education, Economic development, Voter initiative.
