If you were inspired by Sanders’ talks about economic equity, Jill Stein has been carrying that banner for several years.
Stein walks the talk.
The Democrats and Republicans will continue supporting wars for profit: 27 or more simultaneous, unprovoked and expanding wars on nations who did not attack us is bad policy. This is what created ISIS. We need to shut down the wars and rebuild the nation.
History has not been whispering, she has been shouting in our ears for decades:
Any candidate who refuses to secure the peace is the wrong leader during this revolutionary transition. We must challenge the pro-war clowns and profiteers. Trump and Hillary are two peas in a war pod. We cannot afford to continue spending trillions to kill millions for billionaires. Unprovoked aggression against smaller and less powerful nations, for corporate profit, is destroying this nation.
“… Clinton and Trump support a continuation of the Obama policy of unrestricted assassination of individuals targeted by the White House for extermination.” This is illegal, immoral, unconstitutional and one of the many ways our unprovoked aggression helped to create ISIS. When we are on the attack, people will continue to fight back.
Wars of agression are the same tragedy we have endured for 36 years. But this year, we have an opportunity for change. Change takes courage. Settling for the “lesser evil” does not work.
“Obama has governed like a right winger at home and abroad. And we are paying the price.”
The “lesser evil” Obama took us from Bush’s 4 wars and bombing 4 nations to Obama’s 27 wars and bombing 7-10 nations who did not attack us. Obama has also claimed the right of kings to murder Americans at will, without charges or a trial, and has done so. , Trump and Clinton have endorsed rendering Americans for torture, rape and murder as well as dozens of avoidable wars.
We need real change.
“Just being slightly less worse than the worst possible scenario is not acceptable. We have to be willing to stand up and throw off those chains of powerlessness. In the words of Alice Walker, ‘the biggest way people give up power is by not knowing they have it.’
We have it.”
Stein is younger, more progressive, better-educated and smarter than Clinton, Trump and the last five presidents. As she continues winning the debates this fall, she is communicating with millions who have already rejected the corporate parties. The American people are sick of war. We can make this change, this year. 80-92% of the electorate already reject Trump and Clinton.
Change is in our hands. Dr. Jill Stein does not offer platitudes or empty promises. She understands the issues and delivers real and attainable answers. The only way we can move from exporting terror, munitions and war to the export of knowledge, technology and peace… is to face facts and stop pretending.
Victory is within our grasp.
“If the 40 million students whose debt will be erased, and the 31 million Americans who will receive universal nonprofit healthcare, and the untold millions of Americans who can profit from ending 27 corporate wars, regulating the banksters and rebuilding the nation… can join together in an act of mass civil disobedience, we can take back the nation and begin building foundations for a world no longer at war to feed cons, profiteers and criminals.
The struggle continues and we must organize, educate and agitate for real and effective social justice and human victories of the heart. We do not have to take it anymore. We can refuse by finding the courage to stand firm. We have only yet begun the fight. And I remain willing to fight for the greater good instead of surrendering to the disasters we have suffered for 36 long years.”
It is time, with this new declaration of independence from the corporate cons, that we take back this nation, and our lives, from these pretenders. Viva la revolution!
