Barr – who found fame with her 1990's sitcom Roseanne – has filed the official documents needed to become the Green Party's nominee for President, reports TMZ.

Barr wrote on Twitter yesterday: "I am running for Green Party nominee for POTUS… I am an official candidate. I am4 the Greening of America&the world. Green=peace/justice."

At Twitter.com/therealroseanne, she said of her policies: "i will institute single payer health care within the first 100 days. #Europeanstyle" and "I will forgive all student loans and ALL HOMEOWNER DEBT AND ALL CREDIT CARD DEBT".

She preceded this by explaining: "the green party offers the only hope that exists on this planet. To rid ourselves of war and injustice, done in the name of money. UTOPIA!"

Roseanne Barr headed up Roseanne from 1988 to 1997. Last year she appeared in the show Roseanne's Nuts, about her macadamia farm in Hawaii.
