CD1 Candidate Casper Stockham supports
National Right to Try Act signed by President Trump

Denver, Colorado: yesterday President Trump signed into law the National Right to Try Act giving access to experimental treatments for terminal illnesses. This legislation is already legal in forty states and bills have been introduced in the remaining ten states.

Stockham – “Each of us know friends and relatives who have lost loved ones to terminal illnesses and know the pain, suffering and hopelessness that these deaths cause. We want the opportunity to not just save our loved ones from these hideous diseases but also have the opportunity to have their lives accomplish something positive in respect to what are now considered experimental treatments. We want to move that research forward.”

According to the Right To Try website, www.righttotry.org/about-right-to-try/ “Over 1 million Americans die from a terminal illness every year… Many spend years searching for a potential cure, or struggle in vain to get accepted into a clinical trial. Unfortunately, FDA red tape and government regulations restrict access to promising new treatments, and for those who do get access, it’s often too late.”

Stockham – “I heartily support President Trump in signing this bill. It is an additional example of this Presidents effectiveness in breaking through the status quo and getting relief to individuals and empowering alternative treatments instead of the large Federal Bureaucracy of the Food and Drug Administration. It is vital the patients who seek such treatments are well advised as to the consequences of their decision, but that decision should be theirs alone.”

CD1 candidate Stockham proposed an initiative in 2016 and now
ALL 4 Democrat candidates for CO Governor are pressed to agree!

Denver, Colorado: Charles (Casper) Stockham ran for Congress in 2016 in Colorado’s 1st Congressional District. He received 28% of the vote against 20-year incumbent Diana DeGette. He announced during that campaign that as part of his Planting Seeds of Purpose platform he would propose a Citizenship Restoration Initiative to end institutional slavery and child and sex slavery. In addition it would allow for Restoration of ALL Constitutional Rights after completion of their sentence and probation for every NON-violent Felon in America!

Stockham – “Slavery is wrong in any form and the fact that it is still happening in America is unacceptable. My hope is that this measure will help free and restore ALL citizenship rights laid out by the constitution and integrate these individuals back into becoming productive members of society.” This is the restorative justice that is needed in inner city and rural communities around the nation.

In 2014 the Colorado legislature unanimously agreed to a No Slavery No Exceptions ruling to change an amendment wording that allowed for institutional slavery throughout correctional facilities. This bill was strongly supported by the NAACP and CBWPA. The Citizenship Restoration Initiative will seek to take that local measure to the US House of Representatives in Washington DC.

Stockham – “Last week ALL 4 Democratic governor candidates announced to the NAACP and CBWPA group that they would support such a measure. Now it’s time for them to put it in writing. If elected to represent Colorado’s CD-1 I will sponsor this bill in the US House of Representatives. The Republican Party started the freedom process over 150 years ago and now it’s time to complete the work. I welcome the Democratic and Republican Party’s support on this initiative.”

The Citizenship Restoration initiative would direct resources to current and future organizations like Our Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) and Blossom Care Network (B.C.N.) who are on the front lines fighting these issues every day.

How The Black Panther Movie Will Help Us Reboot Our Community
By: Casper Stockham Casperforcolorado.com 720-257-9461

$172,000,000 is a lot of cash.  And that’s on the low side of estimates of opening week-end ticket sales for the blockbuster movie, Black Panther.  Wow!

Last week, Marvel Comics released its first Black Panther movie.  I hope there are more.  My wife, Cheryl, and I saw the movie on Monday and we plan to see it again before it leaves the big screen.  The movie has a positively powerful message of justice, purpose, pride, strength and hope.

I care deeply about our children and our community.  We tell our children that our ancestors were kings and queens, however, we glorify gangsters, drug dealers and twerkers.  We can do better!  Black Panther exemplifies all that I do at my non-profit organization, Seeds of Dignity Coalition.  We are actively helping each child fulfill their unique destiny, purpose and success.  Just like the Black Panther, we encourage YOU to be the best YOU can be!

Seeds of Dignity is rebooting our community’s efforts to fight crime, drugs, sex trafficking and unemployment.  These unresolved issues are hurting out kids.  For much too long, we’ve relied on politicians and bureaucrats to fix the challenges that we face in our neighborhoods.  They have let us down.  We cannot look to Washington and City Hall to solve these important issues.  Just like the Black Panther, we must look to the strength within us.

This movie is important for every child, especially those of color.  Seldom, in a cinematic feature film, do black children see positive role models portrayed on the movie screen.  Fighting evil is a noble cause.  Just as the Black Panther fought evil, we must take a stand for good.

Purpose!  We are not part of the random cosmos.  Each of us is here for a reason.  Just like the Black Panther, we must ask, “Who are we, why are we here and what are we to do?”

This movie touched my heart and here is why:

• Black Panther is black and a superhero.  It’s about time!

• As King of Wakanda, Black Panther represents justice, purpose, pride, strength and Hope.  All great examples for children.

• The beautiful imagery of Africa is reflected throughout the movie.

• The actors/actresses show real examples of hard work and purpose.

The movie ending was inspirational when the Black Panther bought several buildings in the community to start an education and technology center.  Boom!  Seeds of Dignity Coalition has already been working on that.

Now I know that I don’t look like Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman, physically.  However we have the same heart.  We both have the courage to stand against leaders who want to control our lives.  We both believe that each child, especially those of color, must realize that they are unique and Treasured.  And, we both know that each child has destiny and purpose to be the best they can be!

My non-profit organization, Seeds of Dignity Coalition, is so moved and impressed with this movie, that we’ve started a campaign, https://www.gofundme.com/blackpantherchallenge-denver, to take as many as 200 inner city youth to see it.  Our motto at Seeds of Dignity is “Planting seeds of dignity and purpose throughout the nation.”  Join us!


OP ED – Diana DeGette Does Not Stand For You
By: Casper Stockham February 10th, 2018
 
Diana DeGette does not stand for you. DeGette and her fat cat cronies have been getting wealthy while our communities suffer. She shows up at election time for our votes and, once elected, quickly returns to Washington to vote for bigger and bigger government programs that make her & her friends rich & powerful and keep us and our families down.
 
I, Casper Stockham, stand for you!
 
It was shocking to watch Diana DeGette disrespect our neighborhoods during the State of the Union speech. DeGette sat as the parents of two young girls, who were viciously murdered by MS-13 illegal immigrant gang members, were recognized from the platform. Seeing these parent’s tears for their dead daughters broke my heart. And DeGette sat as these black and brown parents received a standing ovation from everyone but the Democrats at the Capitol. Diana DeGette stands for keeping violent illegal immigrants in our communities.
 
I, Casper Stockham, stand for the safety and prosperity of our neighborhoods.
 
Diana DeGette does not care about our Veterans. She sat when Trump said, “And we are serving our brave veterans, including giving our veterans choice in their health-care decisions. Last year, the Congress passed and she signed, the landmark VA Accountability Act.” If Diana DeGette truly cared about our veterans, why would she sit? If she truly cared about our Veterans, she would have demanded transparency and accountability regarding the new VA Hospital in Aurora. Early estimates for the facility were around $528.5 million with completion in 2014. Current projections are that the hospital will cost at least $1.7 billion, three times as much. And, unbelievably, it is still not open. Just think how many homeless veterans we could have helped as DeGette was looking the other way while cronies and bureaucrats were getting rich.
 
I, Casper Stockham, stand for our Veterans.
 
As your next representative, I will work to ensure that we have 0 homeless veterans and 0 veterans in need of services who are not getting them. NO veteran should have to travel past excellent facilities only to have to wait in line for help or services.
And while we have more hard work to do in creating jobs and opportunity for our black and brown communities, Diana DeGette sat as Trump recognized that African-American unemployment stood at the lowest rate ever recorded, and Hispanic American unemployment also reached the lowest levels in history. She talks about jobs and opportunity, however when we start to finally make progress, she sits.
 
As your next Representative to Congress, I will launch several SBA micro business purpose centers and place them in the inner cities and rural communities to help equalize the unemployment rate statewide. These centers will equip our youth and workforce for the jobs of tomorrow. Diana DeGette sits for you.
 
I, Casper Stockham, stand for you! I stand for safe & prosperous neighborhoods. I stand for honoring our Veterans. I stand for jobs and opportunity for our children and our communities.

 


Congressional Candidate Casper Stockham makes rare endorsement in the Colorado’s gubernatorial race!

Denver, Colorado: congressional candidate Charles (Casper) Stockham is making a rare endorsement in the Colorado’s 2018 gubernatorial race by endorsing a candidate before the general election!

StockhamThe 2018 gubernatorial race in Colorado is going to come down to big money on the left or right and we the people! We can choose the status quo and see very little to no change for the better or We The People can choose to move our state forward in a positive and beneficial way!

For far too long the people of Colorado have been divided by politics in the capitol. The establishment elite of both parties have continually played us against one another: Left vs. Right, Front Range vs. Western Slope, rich vs. poor, Environmentalists vs. Agriculture and the list goes on. We must reject their premises and unplug from the noise Stockham says. It’s about all of us!

Stockham – Un-affiliated voters now make up almost a 3rd of the voters in Colorado. Many have left the Republican and Democratic Parties due to a high degree of mistrust and belief that the parties are 2 sides of the same coin.

In addition any candidate on the Republican side will be linked to Trump and unfairly branded as a racist. Sadly few of them have any solid plan to combat those attacks. This is why I believe Greg Lopez is our best choice for governor!

Mr. Stockham believes there is only one republican candidate who can garner a large portion of Hispanic, Black, unaffiliated and soft Democratic voters to win Colorado and that candidate is Greg Lopez!

Mr. Lopez is former military, former mayor of Parker Colorado, business owner, has government executive experience, lots of common sense and the heart needed to keep Colorado strong and moving in the right direction! As Mr. Lopez states
“It’s about all of us!

Please review more information about Greg Lopez at his campaign website www.lopezforgovernor.com – END –

Former Congressional Candidate Casper Stockham weighs
in with positive solutions regarding gentrification!

Denver, Colorado Former Congressional Candidate Casper Stockham weighs in with thoughts, insights and positive solutions regarding gentrification in the Black and Brown communities!

StockhamAfter watching the Ink! Coffee protests in the historic Five Points area it has become clear that government and city officials have failed our community once again. Instead of creating real solutions to address the issue, they have made it worse with political policies that have negatively affected and failed families in our inner cities and across our great state.

If the protesters win, we lose a viable business in the community. If the winds of gentrification win, we lose diverse communities that the city was built upon.

Gentrification without community opportunity has citizens at odds with the very same policies and political leaders they vote for year after year. Gentrification never affects healthy communities, so a healthy community should be the focus.

Stockham There is a better community solution that is a win-win for all involved, including local businesses. We can provide real community solutions to the problems that have plagued our inner cities and rural communities for decades, but we must address the problem, not the symptoms.

If I were the governor of Colorado I would release a 5-point plan that would provide real solutions to problems in the inner city and rural communities like: high unemployment, high crime, homelessness, sex trafficking and the lack of access to resources and prosperity. See below.

  • Identify a community solutions director and staff.
  • Identify organizations and resources that are already doing good work.
  • Work with local community leaders who want to see real positive change.
  • Create Empowerment Purpose Centers in the inner city and rural areas.
  • Remove government red tape that would stop any of the above from happening.

Former Congressional Candidate Casper Stockham
weighs in on Colorado’s gubernatorial race!

Denver, Colorado: Former congressional candidate Charles (Casper) Stockham weighs in on Colorado’s 2018 gubernatorial race with thoughts, insights and solutions from a “We The People” prospective!

StockhamThe 2018 gubernatorial race in Colorado is going to come down to big money on the left or right and we the people. We can choose the status quo and see very little to no change for the better or We The People can choose to move our state forward in a positive and beneficial way!

For far too long the people of Colorado have been divided by politics in the capitol. The establishment elite of both parties have continually played us against one another: Left vs. Right, Front Range vs. Western Slope, rich vs. poor, Environmentalists vs. Agriculture and the list goes on. We must reject their premises and unplug from the noise Stockham says.

Stockham – Un-affiliated voters now make up almost a 3rd of the voters in Colorado. Many have left the Republican and Democratic Parties due to a high degree of mistrust and belief that the parties are 2 sides of the same coin.

We need to launch (P.S.A.C’s) Problem or Opportunity, Solution and Action Committee’s across the country. CLICK HERE for more details.

Our state needs a S.P.A.R.K, System, Plan, Access, Resources and Knowledge.

So when I vote for governor in the great state of Colorado these are the TOP 10 Issues my preferred administration would address and solve!

  1. Facilitate the reduction of Homelessness by at least 90%
    Problem: Homelessness is a 90 – 100% solvable problem in Colorado when the right methods of access to work, accelerated independence and accountability are applied.
    Solution: The next governor could solve this problem in a very short period of time by tapping into current innovative working solutions and get the number one problem out of the way and that problem is the government itself. Get Help!
    —————-
  2. Provide better Veteran services ensuring 100% are served
    Problem: Our veterans deserve all the help we can possibly give them.
    Solution: The next governor should make sure we would have 0 homeless veterans and 0 veterans in need of services who are currently not getting them. NO veteran should have to travel past excellent medical facilities only to have to wait in line for help or services.  Get Help!
    —————-
  3. Facilitate more Jobs in the inner city and rural areas
    Problem: Our Statewide unemployment rate is pretty good however in rural communities and our inner cities the unemployment rate is unacceptable in the double digits.
    Solution: The next governor should launch several SBA micro business purpose centers and place them in the rural communities and inner cities to help equalize the unemployment rate Statewide. These centers would equip our youth and workforce for the jobs of tomorrow.  Get Help!
    —————-
  4. Facilitate more and cleaner Energy options
    Problem: Colorado is a net Energy producing state. It is core to our economic future. We are a leader in Coal, Natural Gas and Alternative energy sources of wind, solar and hydro-electric power. It is essential that continue.
    Solution: The next governor can no longer tolerate the politicians in Denver preventing energy development pitting environmental activists against energy companies. We must have the safest protocols for our energy development but no longer allow the derailing of our resources. The Jobs created by Energy Development is essential to our Western Slope and rural citizens.
    —————-
  5. Aid in better parent control and Educational choices
    Problem: Colorado has done well when it comes to educational choice
    however we can do much better.
    Solution: The next governor must ensure there be more school choice and a system ensuring ALL parents, including the inner city and rural communities, have the means to send their children to the school of their choice. They should also support home school and home school cooperative options as well.  Get Help!
    —————-
  6. Provide safer and faster legal Immigration policies
    Problem: We are a strong nation of legal immigrants. However over the years we have allowed our immigration system to fail us. Our City governments have selfishly subverted our Federal Government enforcement of illegal immigration by granting sanctuary city status to municipalities in our state. Immigration support service is poorly run and administered which forces people into the shadows instead of giving them the opportunity to succeed.
    Solution: The next governor should make it easier for legal immigration while protecting our Colorado citizens from criminal and gang elements that have profited off of the illegal immigration and sex trafficking market. This means we would reduce the regulations on the development of small business and vigorously prosecute those who take advantage of disadvantaged immigrants.  Get Help!
    —————
  7. Promote better and less expensive Health-care choices
    Problem: ACA has left us with higher cost and fewer choices in health-care. 150 – 200% increases in health-care are coming to Colorado very soon.
    Solution: The next governor should seek out free market solutions like Direct Care, Preventive Care, Alternative Care to include, Chiropractic Care, Massage, Acupuncture, and HAS’s to make sure we get the best care at the lowest prices available. In reality health-care should only cost an average family of 4 around $200 a month.  Get Help!
    —————
  8. Facilitate innovative Infrastructure improvements
    Problem: Colorado’s population is growing faster than most states and our roads and bridges are not capable of handling the new growth. For decades the State Legislature has given us a bait and switch with highways and transportation. We have spent billions on RTD and I-25 has been used as an incentive for the taxpayers to spend more money on transportation but our government has failed to deliver on improved maintenance and capacity for I-25.
    Solution: The next governor must immediately expand I-25 from The Wyoming border to South of Pueblo. Also work with private transportation innovators to make sure we are ready and able to meet the transportation demands of the future. In addition CDOT must be reformed with new leadership to meet the transportation needs of Colorado Taxpayers and not the expansion of their own fiefdom.
    —————
  9. Provide better Housing and slow down gentrification
    Problem: Colorado has had a housing issue for years and yet it never seems to get any better. AND when new money shows up it turns Black and Brown suburbs into Gentrified communities in its wake.
    Solution: The next governor must support efforts to keep people in their family
    homes and make sure their neighborhoods stay safe, intact and prosperous.  Get Help!
    —————
  10. Promote Federal Term Limits in DC
    Problem: DC is corrupt and dysfunctional. We can improve Colorado but the real problems will always come from DC.
    Solution: The next governor should support term limits for ALL federal elected and
    appointed officials which would include the Supreme Court as well. Even the person with great intentions tends to get corrupted over time.
