‘We Americans need to start standing up; we have the power’ – Green Party’s Dr. Jill Stein
Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who announced her candidacy for the 2016 Presidential race Tuesday, gives an interview to RT in which she talks about her campaign plans, how she will bring in more voters and make sure she is included this time in the presidential election debates, something third-party candidates have been denied for years in the US. Stein was actually arrested when she tried to get into the televised debate for the 2012 elections. She discusses the current state of American politics negatively impacting the nation, including aggressive external policies, connection to Israeli lobby, terrorism/ISIS and more. Both Republican and Democratic Parties are controlled by big money, Jill Stein says.
Part of her plan is the green economy and nationalizing the FED. I’ll vote for that.
I personally refer to the stifling, dead-end US two-party system as a ‘two-headed one party system.’ At least when the USSR had a one party system, they were honest about it and didn’t pretend they had two bogus parties. US desperately needs its own “perestroika,” a complete overhaul of its outdated and bought-and-paid-for election and political system. But as Stein correctly points out, it’s all under tight control of big money, and therefore, any overhaul is not in the interests of the elites.
Sadly, it will be impossible for her to actually win these elections due to big money dominance, voter inertia/overwhelming ignorance, and election fraud in the US. But it’s still a great idea for third parties to voice their alternative positions. Little by little, they will make SOME people think differently, thus fostering the eventual change, so desperately needed in the US.
