The Green Party Manifesto - Jill Stein

Jill Stein - The Green Party Manifesto

Read the full manifesto

If you are a pissed off Bernie Sanders supporter, or an independent who looks at the choice between Trump and Clinton and just want to blow your brains out,then have you considered the Green Party?

They are on most ballots in the country and despite Jill being disallowed from entering the Presidential debates due to not having the 15% poll numbers needed (because she isn't even on most polls!), then you may want to know a bit about her policies.

She is not a crazy, left wing, socialist, commie as you may have heard. She is just someone that actually wants to help US citizens.

She doesn't want your jobs off shored by the "NAFTA on steroids" that she calls the secretive TTIP trade deal that was only broken by WikiLeaks and allows for international corporations to sue national governments if laws introduced affect their bottom line.
She has a plan for getting off oil, making the US energy independent as well as creating tons of new green based jobs for all the millions of people out of work due to Obama and Bush.

She wants free health care for people - it costs less than the convaluted system the US uses at the moment and it would help people in the long run by removing the fear of going to see a doctor or enter hospital if they have no money. A fit person is one that can work and pay taxes.

Read her manifesto and let me know what you think.

She calls it the Power To The People Plan.
“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.”


Key points of the Power to the People Plan:

A Green New Deal:
Create millions of jobs by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030, and investing in public transit, sustainable agriculture, and conservation.

Jobs as a Right:
Create living-wage jobs for every American who needs work, replacing unemployment offices with employment offices. Advance workers rights to form unions, achieve workplace democracy, and keep a fair share of the wealth they create.

End Poverty:
Guarantee economic human rights, including access to food, water, housing, and utilities, with effective anti-poverty programs to ensure every American a life of dignity.

Health Care as a Right:
Establish an improved “Medicare For All” single-payer public health insurance program to provide everyone with quality health care, at huge savings.

Education as a Right:
Abolish student debt to free a generation of Americans from debt servitude. Guarantee tuition-free, world-class public education from pre-school through university. End high stakes testing and public school privatization.

A Just Economy:
Set a $15/hour federal minimum wageBreak up “too-big-to-fail” banks and democratize the Federal Reserve. Reject gentrification as a model of economic development. Support development of worker and community cooperatives and small businesses. Make Wall Street, big corporations, and the rich pay their fair share of taxes. Create democratically run public banks and utilities. Replace corporate trade agreements with fair trade agreements.

Protect Mother Earth:
Lead on a global treaty to halt climate change. End destructive energy extraction: fracking, tar sands, offshore drilling, oil trains, mountaintop removal, and uranium mines. Protect our public lands, water supplies, biological diversity, parks, and pollinators. Label GMOs, and put a moratorium on GMOs and pesticides until they are proven safe. Protect the rights of future generations.

Racial Justice Now:
End police brutality and mass incarcerationCreate a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to understand and eliminate the legacy of slavery that lives on as pervasive racism in the economy, education, housing and health. Ensure that communities control their police rather than police controlling our communities, by establishing police review boards and full time investigators to look in to all cases of death in police custody. Demilitarize the police.

Freedom and Equality:
Expand women’s rights, protect LGBTQIA+ people from discrimination, defend indigenous rights and lands, and create a welcoming path to citizenship for immigrants. Protect the free Internet, legalize marijuana/hemp, and treat substance abuse as a public health problem, not a criminal problem.

Justice for All:
Restore our Constitutional rights, terminate unconstitutional surveillance and unwarranted spying, end persecution of government and media whistleblowers, close Guantanamo, abolish secret kill lists, and repeal indefinite detention without charge or trial.

Peace and Human Rights:
Establish a foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law, and human rights. End the wars and drone attacks, cut military spending by at least 50% and close the 700+ foreign military bases that are turning our republic into a bankrupt empire. Stop U.S. support and arms sales to human rights abusers, and lead on global nuclear disarmament.

Empower the People:
Abolish corporate personhood. Protect voters’ rights by establishing a constitutional right to vote. Enact electoral reforms that break the big money stranglehold and create truly representative democracy: public campaign financing, ranked-choice voting, proportional representation, and open debates.

Personally I don't see anything nutty or mad in that at all. It's the MSM that keeps cutting her elegant speeches into nonsensical sound bites that make her seem crazy and that's something that should set big red flags in your brain flying. If the MSM don't want any alternative to the duopoly then they have a vested interest in keeping the status quo.

Considering half of the news anchors are on the pay books of the CIA and other agencies to give you the news the masters want you to hear it would spoil their party if they actually had someone on that could really debate the issues and call them out on their hypocrisy.

So if you are thinking of an alternative to the lesser of two evils then why not think outside the box, poll for Jill Stein, get her numbers above 15% and see her debate the two headed monster on TV!

Just by trimming back the biggest military in the world a tad would save so much money you could give everyone a free degree and bump up the minimum wage. The problem is that means the big military industrial complex companies don't make their billions from the death the US war machine causes. 

Instead normal people have a chance to be educated and get a decent job to feed their family. What's wrong with that?
