From a young age, I understood marriage and family as the essence of this life and the ultimate happiness. I have been married to my wife Zahra, my first love, for 13 years, and together we have 3 beautiful kids.
I was attracted to philosophy when I learned that it provides the deepest understanding for several aspects of our lives. Philosophy studies the foundations of our value system which is the base of politics. Unfortunately, our lawmakers lack such vital understanding that impacts all of us.
I am devoted to spreading peace in the world. The issue of wars and imperialism is, sadly, not a priority to many human rights activists. If the right to life is not protected, then what's the point of protecting the other rights?
"We will not be able to restore our democracy and the power of the people without getting all sorts of money out of our politics"

Why I am running?
It Is A Responsibility
Understanding that our democracy has been hijacked, the will of 'We The People' is no longer represented and the level of corruption that is being maintained is unprecedented, I believe that we are all responsible to restore our democracy, defend our constitutional rights and fight corruption
I See A Hope
I see hope for a change and a reform that I could not see previously. The past couple of years witnessed promising shifts in the public awareness of the reality of our politics, which is the cornerstone for any reforming movement. Let's grow it.
The two-corporate-owned-party system has dominated our politics for the past 100 years. This domination and the lack of choices allowed such a system to maintain corruption and distort democracy. ??
