David Cobb on Civil Rights

Green Party nominee for President


US history is constant struggle for more democracy

The Cobb '04 campaign believes in equality and justice for all people. The history of the United States is in large part a history of the constant struggle to make this imperfect democracy more democratic, more inclusive, more just.
