Why Trump AND Clinton are both wrong

By Terry Connolly There is no imminent fascist takeover of the government, in fact, the Republican presidential candidate probably isn’t going to win the election. That doesn’t stop Hillary and the Democrats from trying to scare you into voting for her. Recently, even though the polls indicate a Hillary victory in November, the Clintonistas have continued and even increased their attacks on Jill Stein. The attacks on Jill aren’t just from the blogosphere and the professional media, but include Democratic politicians, including the president. They range from vitriolic screeds to rhetorical hyperbole. The rationalizations for voting for her are somewhat…


The Best Ballot Plan Now? ‘Strategic’ Voting for the Stein-Baraka Green Party Ticket

truthdig By Kevin Zeese October 26. 2016 Editor’s note: Kevin Zeese is co-director of Popular Resistance and a senior adviser to the Green Party’s Jill Stein-Ajamu Baraka campaign. Donald Trump is campaigning to win 40 percent of the vote for president—and he’s close, with recent polls showing him in the high 30s. But his final performance will not help. Trump is focusing on topics that will prevent him from broadening his base, such as the women he accuses of lying about his alleged sexual assaults, and what he calls the rigged election. He is fighting with other Republicans, like Paul…


A Good Year to Go Green (Party)

The Hill By Scott McLarty, contributor October 24, 2016 We were treated to a double “October surprise” on Friday, Oct. 7. The video of Donald Trump crowing that his celebrity status entitles him to assault women slightly eclipsed Hillary Clinton‘s leaked speeches. But we still learned that Clinton holds “public and private positions,” that her populist promises regarding free trade, preserving Social Security, and checking the power of Wall Street probably won’t survive Inauguration Day. Millions of voters have figured out that the two major parties don’t represent them. They’re right. It’s not a two-party system, it’s a two-party racket….


Why a vote for Jill Stein is not a “wasted” vote

Green Party of Ohio By Bob Fitrakis & Suzanne Patzer September 29, 2016 Voters beware! Don’t let mainstream shills for the Democratic Party masquerading as non-partisan progressive journalists or pundits bully you into believing you can’t decide for yourself or that the fallout from your vote will topple our nation. First of all, let’s get something straight. No vote is a “wasted” vote. Anyone who tells you this does not have respect for you or our democratic system. All Votes Matter. A person who takes time to think about issues or candidates and goes to a polling site to cast…


Why “Lesser Evilism” Is a Loser

Against the Current September-October 2016, ATC 184 AGAINST THE CURRENT interviewed Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for president in 2016 following its convention at the end of July. The Green Party vice-presidential candidate is Ajamu Baraka. Against the Current: How do you answer the question that the only thing that counts is beating Trump? Jill Stein: That’s the question we get every election. It’s the question we get most in this election. It’s what the Democrats said in 1964 about Goldwater. “Part of the way with LBJ.” Goldwater lost in a landslide but the Democrats escalated in Vietnam and…
