AMA - Please define "sovereign government”?

This is a great question that was submitted from a local voter:

“Hi Mark,
Please define what you mean by “sovereign government”. For those who believe that only God is sovereign, saying the US is sovereign sounds elitist to me. Since I am a universalist, believing ALL people of the earth deserve quality of life, building walls and keeping those less fortunate stuck in their situations feels dehumanizing. Thoughts?” 

  • Sue Moore, Florida voter

“Thanks for the question! The working definition in the context for which it was used is a sovereign government, as in a government that operates its own independent nation without interference from foreign powers. Not meant to be elitist in its usage.”

  • Mark Gonsalves, Candidate for Georgia’s 7th Congressional District
