Vote Green in 2016

It should be clear by now the Democratic Party has no interest in allowing progressives to win the nomination of their Wall Street and Pentagon funded billionaire’s club.

After a firewall crash in a shared DNC database exposed Clinton campaign information to the Sanders campaign, the DNC responded by blocking the Sanders people from accessing their own voter files.  Access was only restored after the Sanders camp filed a lawsuit. 

This follows DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz limiting debates and scheduling them for weekends--  reducing the ability of Sanders to get his message out to the public.

But this is nothing new for the Democratic Party.  The Democratic Party has a long history of shutting out voices from the left, notably, Dennis Kucinich, Howard Dean, and Jesse Jackson.

Howard Dean, gaining traction for his anti-war message in 2004, was made a laughing stock, with help from the corporate media, over the now infamous “Dean Scream” which was a childish personal attack.

Dennis Kucinich was kept out of the MSNBC debate despite his ability to meet all the requirements put forth, because MSNBC had the “1st amendment right” to invite, or uninvite, any candidates they saw fit, showing what a fraud the debates are.

Jesse Jackson’s campaign was similarly squashed, despite widespread popular support, and was subject to a smear campaign led by DNC insiders.

The question that Bernie Supporters should be asking themselves, (and that Greens should be asking them as well) is this:

When the DNC and the corporate media finish their campaign of “death by 1,000 cuts”-- and when Hillary, or some other corporate candidate becomes the DNC nominee, will Bernie’s supporters fall in line behind the Democratic Party’s lesser evil?  Or will they break with the Democratic Party fully and finally, and work instead to build an independent political party?

This is the reason the Green Party exists.  We are not a group working within the Democratic Party. We understand that the Democratic Party has no interest in pursuing the policies of the 99%, because of their financial ties to Wall Street & Pentagon contractors.

The Green Party doesn’t need to engage in the tightly controlled public relations event of the DNC primary. We run our own candidates, like 2012’s Jill Stein / Cheri Honkala ticket, or 2008’s Cynthia McKinney / Rosa Clemente ticket.  

Please share this message with your friends, and commit to vote Green Party in 2016.

    Also I would like to break the lie that a Third Party can not win and you must vote Dem to keep out the Rep. Less then 50% of registered voters are registered into the Dems or Reps, which means if all Dems and Reps voted for their own candidates the other 50% voted for the Third Party candidate the Third Party candidate will win. But they are so afraid of the third Party that at the 2012 debates they had Jill and her VP candidate, who just come to hear the debates taken to an undisclosed place where they were handcuffed to chairs for 7 hours till the debate was over and the media gone and they just dropped them on the side of the road at night to find their way home. Who gave these people the right to keep any of us from knowing who is running for President and who to vote for? And why do we believe their lies without even trying. We have run Green Party candidates every time and some times the Dems win and some time the Reps, so, no, voting Green has nothing to do with who of the 2 corporate candidates get voted in. Stop the lies. games and madness. Vote Green.

    It's stunning to me that almost everyone that I talk to dislikes the status quo in American politics yet will not take the leap of faith to do anything to change that system that we're forever stuck in.

    We need Mainers to follow Jill's amazing lead and speak to national and international issues as well as local. Maine Greens have generally been too tame and not enough outside the box in thinking. Want ideas? ASK!
