Vote Green Party for a New Deal

The choice between Trump and Clinton was no choice at all. Both are pro-war.

Neither of the war parties represent the American people. These profiteers are not on our side.  The late George Herbert Walker Bush… along with Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and now Don Trump… have the same party platform:  Dozens of wars of unprovoked aggression for extraction, exploitation and extortion. This is not working.

Obama, the lying Democrat, promised peace and health care, but took us from 4 avoidable Republican wars of choice into 30 Democratic wars of aggression for extraction, exploitation and extortion. Instead of the universal health care he promised, Barack gave us forced payments to insurance cartels delivering the most expensive and least effective health care among all developed nations. And this left 31 million people out.

The United States healthcare system is the most expensive in the world, but when it comes to health outcomes, it performs worse than 11 other similar industrialized nations, according to a new report released by the Commonwealth Fund.


Now Trump has embraced these unprovoked wars and continues to spend trillions

killing millions for billionaires, munitions cartels and war-profiteers. Our dysfunctional insurance cartel-based health care denial system continues to bankrupt America while bankers seize our homes.

If we allow the war parties to continue to drag us into their gutter, economists predict that before 2030 the economic bottom will fall out.

 

The fall of the American dollar will trigger global depression and American military and intelligence resources will be retreating from dozens of wars and more than 800 bases while toxic oceans rise to flood nuclear reactors, cities and human developments on all shores.

We can reject the corporate war parties. They have failed us for 45 years.  We can embrace the Green Party’s New Deal.
“Our nation – and our world – face a “perfect storm” of economic and environmental crises that threaten not only the global economy, but life on Earth as we know it. The dire, existential threats of climate change, wars for oil, and a stagnating, crisis-ridden economic system require bold and visionary solutions if we are to leave a livable world to the next generation and beyond.
These looming crises mean that the question facing us in upcoming elections is historically unique. The fate of humanity is in our hands.  It is not just a question of what kind of world we want, but whether we will have a world where we can survive.

Building on the concept of FDR’s New Deal,
we call for a massive mobilization of our communities, government and the people on the scale of World War II – to transition our energy systems and economy to 100% clean, renewable energy, including a complete phase out of fossil fuels, fracked gas and nuclear power. We propose an ambitious yet secure economic and environmental program that will revive the economy , turn the tide on climate change, and make wars for oil obsolete – allowing us to cut our bloated military budget in half.
The Green Party New Deal is not only a major step towards ending unemployment for good, but also a tool to fight the corporate takeover of our democracy and exploitation of the poor and people of color.  It will provide a just transition, with a priority on providing resources to workers displaced from the fossil fuel industry, low-income communities and communities of color most impacted by climate change.

The transition to 100% clean energy will foster democratic control of our energy system, rather than maximizing profits for energy corporations, banks and hedge funds. It will promote clean energy as a human right and a common good. It will include community, worker and public ownership, as well as small businesses and non-profits.

We will cut military spending by at least half to bring our troops – currently stationed in over 800 bases worldwide – home to their families, deploying our valued servicemen and women in their own communities to build up our country’s future and prosperity here at home. Maintaining bases all over the world to safeguard fossil fuel supplies or to shore up repressive oil monarchies could no longer be justified as “protecting American interests.”
The Green New Deal not only saves us from climate catastrophe. It also pays for itself through health savings alone, from the prevention of fossil fuel-related diseases – which kill 200,000 people every year and afflict millions more with asthma, heart attacks, strokes, cancer and other illnesses. This program not only addresses the greenparty2urgent crises facing our society, but puts America’s leading role in the world to work in a constructive way: to build a just, sustainable, and healthy planet for our young people and future generations.”

Vote Green for a sustainable future.

Leave the war parties behind!
