Hello! Well, I lost 2 offices in the primary election in Vermont BUT I won 5 (yes, FIVE). I (Cris Ericson) am on the Nov. 3, 2020 official election ballot for the general election in the glorious State of Vermont for FIVE (5) offices for the PROGRESSIVE PARTY, a relatively NEW MAJOR PARTY in VERMONT.
Here are my home made socially distancing political campaign videos:

So, to summarize, you can go to the Vermont Secretary of State Elections Division online and download the qualified candidate listing, and I am on it 5 (FIVE) times for Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Auditor of Accounts and Treasurer.
I am NOT (boo hoo hoo) on the ballot for Representative to United States Congress and I am NOT on the ballot for Governor of Vermont.
I COULD HAVE BEEN on the ballot for 7 offices as an independent candidate, but after emailing arguments back and forth, the Secretary of State refused to allow me on the ballot for BOTH independent and Progressive Party, so I had to chose, and I chose to be on the ballot for 5 offices for the Progressive Party.
Now, you may ask HOW did THAT HAPPEN?
This took a lot of thinking. I have 2 dogs, and one turned 17 years old in August. Meanwhile, on the Howie Carr Show on talk radio, Howie was in tears one day crying live on the radio because his dog Gooner died at age 18 1/2. I decided to give my little 13 pound poodle-chiwowa-long haired silky terrier the last days of her life in her home she's always lived in - also because the Veterinarian said her life expectancy is age 18. I struggled thinking, can I carry this little dog all over the HUGE U.S. Congress building if I win? Will I get too tired carrying her around? She does walk, but only so much each day. Then, there is my other dog, the poorly behaved growling, snarling "Daisy". After thinking, I decided to run as a Progressive Party candidate for just the 5 (five) statewide offices I won in the primary, and NOT SWITCH, as I could have, to Independent for the general election.
Well, no one ran against me in the primary election for 5 offices, only for two, and I lost those two (US Congress and Governor).
So, how many of you think I can win at least ONE of the FIVE offices I am on the general election ballot for?
ENJOY MY VIDEOS!

PBS is involved in a lot of political candidate debates.
PBS may be involved in determining the criteria of which candidates are included, and which candidates are excluded from political candidate debates.
This issue is now at its height with the majority of candidates for President of the United States of America being excluded from the next January 14, 2020 Democratic Party political candidate debate.

Because the majority of Democratic candidates for President are being excluded from this debate, the public should sit up and take notice!

What can the left-out candidates do?

Cris Ericson is a perennial candidate in Vermont and she was left out of Vermont PBS debates in 2018.

In 2019, she filed a complaint to the Federal Election Commission and received Matter Under Review M.U.R. # 7619. About 2 months after her complaint was filed, the Republican FEC Commissioner resigned.
Because there are now only 3 Commissioners, the FEC laws which were invented by the U.S. Congress for the benefit of the incumbent members, does not allow the FEC to vote to either dismiss her complaint, or to act on her complaint. Because 120 days have passed since her complaint was "filed" legally and properly with all of the legal requirements in late June 2019,
and the FEC has not acted on it,
she now has "legal standing" to re-file her complaint in the United States District Court in Washington, D.C.

WOULD ANY OTHER CANDIDATES FOR FEDERAL OFFICE, SUCH AS ANY DEMOCRATIC PARTY CANDIDATES FOR PRESIDENT, BE WILLING TO "JOIN" CRIS ERICSON'S COMPLAINT, BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO GO THROUGH THE 120 FEC WAITING PERIOD TO RE-FILE IN U.S.D.C., AND CRIS ERICSON HAS LEGAL STANDING TO DO SO,
SO WHY NOT "JOIN" HER COMPLAINT ABOUT PBS? This would require a very motivated pro-bono attorney who is licensed before Federal Courts and has multi-district litigation experience and complex litigation experience.

CHANGING THE CULTURE OF PBS WHICH THINKS IT SHOULD HAVE THE POWER TO DISCARD CANDIDATES WILL TAKE WORK!
HAS YOUR FAVORITE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THE
JANUARY 2020 POLITICAL DEBATE? WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT?

WILL THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY EVER BE ENTIRELY INCLUSIVE AND FAIR?

Could Democratic Party candidates for President of the United States of America, who have been excluded from debates jointly controlled by PBS, join the complaint of an independent candidate for U.S. Congress against Vermont PBS?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
WILL 2020 BRING FAIRNESS TO POLITICS?

I want all Democratic Party candidates for President of the
United States of America to sit up and pay attention because
you know that PBS is constantly asking for viewer donations,
and you know that PBS most likely contributes to the
manipulation of the
criteria for debate participation, so ask yourselves,
how many of their donations are from foreigners, and
how much influence do the foreigners have in the manipulation
of criteria for debate participation?

Isn't that foreign influence in our elections if
that is what is going on, even if it is a small part?
Cris Ericson filed her complaint to the Federal Election Commission
last summer 2019 before the Republican Commissioner resigned,
leaving the FEC without the necessary Quorum of four Commissioners
required to vote to send a complaint to the U.S. Attorney General
or to vote to dismiss a complaint or to vote to take action on a complaint.

The FEC has 120 days to take action on a complaint,
and if they do not do it within that time frame,
then the party complaining can take legal action
in the United States District Court in
Washington, D.C. if they want to. Otherwise, they
sit and wait for the Federal Election Commission
to take action one way or another.

The file cabinets at the FEC might be full of
complaints asking questions about
foreign influence in elections,
but they might not be heard right now
because there is no Quorum of four Commissioners
to vote on the complaints that might exist or
to vote to send them to the U.S. Attorney General.
Isn't it important right now to get any questions
about foreign influence in elections out for the
public to hear?

Cris Ericson's complaint
has been sitting at the Federal Election Commission
since last summer, well over 120 days, but
she can not afford to take her complaint to the
United States District Court in Washington, D.C.
and the only way it could get there would be if
other candidates for Federal Office "join"
her complaint by filing with her to the
United States District Court in Washington, D.C.
with a pro-bono attorney representing them.

How many Democratic Party candidates for
President of the United States of America
are now complaining about being excluded
from political candidate debates which are
partly funded by PBS, which receives federal
tax dollars, and therefore should not
exclude any candidate from debates?

Could Democratic Party candidates for President of the United States, who are being excluded from political candidate debates by PBS, join a Vermont independent candidate who filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Vermont PBS for excluding her from 2018 political candidate debates even though she was on the official election ballot for the general election Nov. 6, 2018 in Vermont?

Isn't the issue the same for all excluded candidates, that PBS is funded by tax dollars and therefore no candidate with ballot status, whether it is the primary election or the general election, should be excluded from any debates which are funded by PBS which is funded by taxpayer dollars?

www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/top-democratic-candidates-ask-dnc-change-debate-qualifying-rules

Democratic Presidential candidates are complaining about debate exclusion by PBS News Hour & Politico.

What can be done?

Maybe they could "join" Cris Ericson's complaint to the Federal Election Commission, which has not been resolved yet.
Matter Under Review, M.U.R. #7619

Cris Ericson was excluded from Vermont PBS
candidate debates in 2018 even though she was on the Nov. 6, 2018

House of Representatives (and for Governor of Vermont as allowed by Vermont laws).

PBS is involved in all of these candidate complaints of debate
exclusion for federal office, so even though Cris Ericson
is an independent candidate,

The FEC is like a secret court

until it is settled. When the complaint is settled,
the public can search the outcome by searching
"closed enforcement matters" and entering

To protect the interests of those involved in a complaint,
the law requires that any Commission action on a MUR
be kept strictly confidential until the case is resolved.
These provisions do not, however, prevent a complainant or respondent
from disclosing the substance of the complaint itself
or the response to that complaint
or from engaging in conduct that leads to the publication
of information contained in the complaint.
Nevertheless, information about a Commission notification of findings
or about a Commission investigation may not be disclosed,
unless the respondent waives his or her right to confidentiality in writing.
Because the public has the right to know the outcome of any enforcement proceeding,
a redacted case file is made available to the public in the Press Office and Office of Public Records within 30 days after the parties involved have been notified that the entire case has been closed.

2020 candidate Cris Ericson for United States Congress invites Cory Booker, Michael Bloomberg, Julian Castro, and all other un-invited Democratic Presidential Primary Election candidates to "Join" her legal action against PBS. Keep in mind that Cris Ericson's complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission for being excluded from Vermont PBS debates in 2018 has passed the 120 day mark allowing her to file in United States District Court in Washington, D.C. if she wants to - but she can't afford to - and the only way to do it is if some other candidate for Federal Office has a valid complaint against PBS and "Joins" her complaint. Because Cris Ericson has passed the 120 day mark in her complaint to the Federal Election Commission, she has "legal standing" to proceed in U.S.D.C. in Washington, D.C. but the Democratic Presidential candidates who have been excluded, or will be excluded from debates, apparently have not filed with the FEC and do not have time before the Primary Elections, so their best bet might be to "Join" Cris Ericson and provide her with pro bono legal aid.

We need more money for healthcare,
education, and low cost housing and
other programs for people living with
disabilities and senior citizens and
families with children.

We need a lot more money, so,
where will Cris Ericson get more money
for Vermont?

Here are three (3) ways Cris Ericson will get
more money for Vermont to keep
Vermonters safe and happy and healthy
and educated and living well.

(1) If Cris Ericson wins the election
for Representative to the United States Congress,
she will sponsor a new Bill
to demand that taxpayers own a share
of the profits for all of their taxpayer dollars
the U.S. Congress votes to give to the
N.I.H., National Institute of Health, which then
gives millions and millions of dollars to
various pharmaceutical corporations
for research, design and development of
new prescriptions and medical devices,
which the pharmaceutical corporations then
sell worldwide for trillions of dollars in profit
which they are currently keeping for themselves,
making the rich richer, and the poor poorer.
We, the taxpayers, paid for the research,
design and development of these new
prescription drugs and medical devices
so we deserve a return on our investment,
"R.O.I."

When a person buys shares of stock
in any of these pharmaceutical corporations,
they get a return on their investment called a
dividend.

We, the taxpayers, must demand equal rights,
a return on our investment, "R.O.I."
Our share, as taxpayers paying for the R&D,
research, design and development,
could be paid to the 50 states
for health, education and all needs of
the people.

The legal argument for this is that the
general intent of U.S. Copyright
and U.S. Patent Laws
is that the people paying for R & D
(research and development of new products)
should own the Copyright, which is the
design or drawing of a new product,
under US Copyright Law work made for hire laws,
so then they have a right to ownership in the Patent
for the product built on the chemical design or
drawing of a physical object,
and then in the products which are sold,
so they have a right to the share of profits!

The government shouldn't be handing out
our taxpayer dollars to profit-making corporations
without a return on our investment!

AMERICANS HAVE A RIGHT TO A PROFIT ON OUR TAX DOLLARS
WHEN THE CORPORATIONS THEY ARE GIVEN TO
USE THEM TO PROFIT!

(2) Our biggest expense is what is should be, national defense.
But, this valid expenditure for our U.S. Military
has made some defense contractors
mega-multi-millionaire, and even billionaires.
That's the part that makes no common
sense, particularly since our war Veterans
are lacking a lot of medical and dental
treatment, and many are homeless.

Taxpayers pay taxes, the U.S. Congress votes to
give billions of tax dollars to the Pentagon,
then the Pentagon gives millions and
millions of your tax dollars to defense contractors
for research and development
of new weapons systems
and improvements of existing weapons
and jets, drones and bombs.
Then the defense contractors sell the new weapons
to our allies worldwide and make trillions of
dollars of profits for themselves.

If Cris Ericson is elected to be the new
Representative to the United States Congress,
she will sponsor a Bill to demand that
We, the taxpayers, are treated with equal rights
like people who buy shares of stock in the
defense corporations and receive dividends,
we must demand a
a return on our investment of our taxpayer
dollars given to defense contractors, "R.O.I."

Our share, as taxpayers paying for the R&D,
research, design and development,
could be paid to the 50 states
for health, education and all needs of
the people.

The legal argument for this is that the
general intent of U.S. Copyright
and U.S. Patent Laws
is that the people paying for R & D
(research and development of new products)
should own the Copyright, which is the
design or drawing of a new product,
under US Copyright Law work made for hire laws,
so then they have a right to ownership in the Patent

so they have a right to the share of profits!

our taxpayer dollars to profit-making corporations
without a return on our investment!

AMERICANS HAVE A RIGHT TO A PROFIT ON OUR TAX DOLLARS
WHEN THE CORPORATIONS THEY ARE GIVEN TO
USE THEM TO PROFIT!

(3) If elected to be the new Representative
to the United States Congress,
Cris Ericson will sponsor a Bill to
require that:
(a) Any entitity or corporation or non-profit or
university or college that receives
taxpayer dollars
should not pay anyone a salary higher
than the equivalent salary paid to a
government employee; and
(b) because, under current law,
low income people who apply for benefits
like food stamps and medicaid must divulge
all of their bank accounts and assets
under penalty of perjury,
therefore,
people who run non-profit organizations
and universities and colleges
should be held to the same
standards as poor people
when taxpayers fund the non-profit organizations,
colleges and universities;
so they should be required to also
reveal all of their assets, property,
and bank accounts in order to qualify
and prove they actually need taxpayer
dollars to fund their organizations.

If Cris Ericson is elected Governor of Vermont
she will call a Governors Conference of all
Governors in all 50 States and ask them to sign
a Petition to ask the United States Congress
to submit a Bill proposing the above three
Bill proposals written by Cris Ericson.

Just in case I can't figure out how to make a new listing for myself in time, and I am busy right now in the end stages of a lousy campaign because Vermont PBS refused to allow me in the political debates they held, and some of the community access television stations in Vermont won't air videos made at other community access stations, which violates voters freedom of association to know who the candidates on the ballot are, and absentee voting already started awhile back, so this feels like the most corrupt election cycle I have ever been in, and I have been on the ballot every two years starting 2002, and every two years I have been abused more and more and more. So, in case I can't figure out how to make a new 2018 listing here at ourcampaigns.com and I already have given up trying to update the old listing, here is my 2018 main platform, I call it Cris Ericson's NEW DEAL:
OCTOBER 2018 OFFICIAL POLITICAL PLATFORM

The first thing Vermonters ask is:
"How are you going to pay for that?"

Finding ways to fund Vermont state programs
and federal programs is critical to

Hello! I am on the official election ballot for the Nov. 6, 2018 election ballot in Vermont for Representative to U.S. Congress and for Governor of Vermont. I am listed on the Vermont Secretary of State website, 2018 candidate information guide. I have tried over and over and over again to update a previous listing here of my previous campaign, under the U.S. Marijuana Party. I am now an Independent candidate, and this website is not letting me update. crisericson7@gmail.com is my current email. My previous email, usmjp@aceweb.com allows me to log in, but does not allow me to change or add any data, when I click preview and post, it just disappears. That previous email is no longer valid. I can not receive mail there. Cris Ericson [Link] and [Link]
