Our New President: Dr. Jill Stein

DSC_0635-copy.14236.widea.0“My Power to the People Plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.

It offers direct answers to the economic, social, and ecological crises brought on by both corporate political parties. And it empowers the American people to fix our broken political system and make real the promise of democracy.

This plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes, it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”

Peace and Human Rights:

Empower the People:

Abolish corporate personhood.

“If you are tired of wage theft, slave labor and working poverty…  abandon the corporate cons anpeacedovemiddled war-profiteers who have brought us twenty seven unnecessary wars, joblessness, and recession while sacrificing the peace to please munitions contractors.  It is time to stand firm.”

This next election, we must send a message.  Write letters, provide options, explore solutions, let us know what our tactics must be to take back the nation.
