Biography

Sare is a political organizer and fundraiser for organizations affiliated with the Lyndon LaRouche movement for the last 25 years.[2][6] Her resume also includes local efforts to promote music among young people and in the greater community. She has formed and directed children's choruses in Washington, D.C., and now directs a community chorus in New Jersey.

She graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan in 1983, and spent one year in Sweden as an exchange student followed by another year at Hamilton College. She transferred to New England Conservatory to study music education and trombone performance.[2][7]

In a biography Sare submitted to Ballotpedia, she described her political philosophy: "The United States must return to the principle of a credit system, as understood by our first Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. That means the immediate reinstatement of the original 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, breaking up the big banks, and the formation of a national bank system of public credit to fund great projects such as NAWAPA XXI, other urgently needed infrastructure, like storm surge barriers for New York and New Jersey, and the space program for defense of the Earth from asteroids, among other concerns."

Campaign themes

2013

In a biography Sare submitted to Ballotpedia, she described her political philosophy as follows: "The United States must return to the principle of a credit system, as understood by our first Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. That means the immediate reinstatement of the original 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, breaking up the big banks, and the formation of a national bank system of public credit to fund great projects such as NAWAPA XXI, other urgently needed infrastructure, like storm surge barriers for New York and New Jersey, and the space program for defense of the Earth from asteroids, among other concerns."[2]

She continued, "Since the assassinations of both Kennedy's and the Warren Commission cover-up, our nation has been in a state of moral and economic decline. Lyndon LaRouche has been absolutely correct in identifying the 'green' movement, with its hatred of human creativity as a major factor in this. The re-election of Nero-style dictator Barack Obama, who takes pleasure in personally selecting targets for drone assassinations on a weekly basis, is evidence of the moral depravity of a substantial portion of particularly our younger generations. Only a commitment to the future of mankind could restore the optimism and sanity of our population."[2]
