Between now and August 6th, 2016, please “vote” for me for V.P. at
I chose the Green Party in 1995, after being disgusted with the other two “corporate parties,” as they should be called.
More than just Ecology, the Green Party upholds Justice and demands Responsibility and Diversity. A nice mix of values: TEN of them we refer to.
Here is the platform of the Green Party of the United States:
Responsibility, future-focus, ecological wisdom: these are traditional Tribal perspectives, as well. With a seventh-generation perspective, one tries to not take the options away from future generations.
One also should consider “all our relations”: the other life on this planet. Mitakuye Oyasin.
Generosity trumps economic barbarianism. Few cultures that last are as selfish as the U.S.A. We need a culture shift, ASAP. A great nation can do much better.
Local and Global Responsibility pertains to everyone: even the out-sized political elephants stomping about.
Local solutions are best. We value Decentralization: another value. Cutting the cords and the control.
The Green Party encompasses a range of values and types. Together, we are Progressive.
But, in order to progress, we must first survive. We must move fast and dig in for the long haul. Local, sustainable solutions improve our emergency readiness, and lower our impact on others.
We MUST convert to localized sustainability very quickly, for our own good and for that of others. Get back to the Garden.
When I first entered the presidential race in 2003, I was concerned about climate change. Still am.
I was also concerned about Indigenous people being able to survive harsh outsiders and climate change. Still am.
I was upset that we have political corruption and poor governance. Still am.
I WANT legalized bribery out of politics, and policy-making done by science and reason and compassion.
I look at the Super-Delegates and the sham of corporatized politics, the chicanery, and I understand why people don’t vote.
I am heartened that at least one faction of a half of the duopoly openly wants substantive change to the system. They will fail (noted: Bernie out; 7/25/2016).
The elections are rigged, broken, fixed. Even so, please do not sit out this next election. Proudly vote Green for a change.
That said, we cannot WAIT for political change, for solutions to trickle down from on high! We must be the change and enact the change.
We must turn toward being a more sharing, open-source society.
We can end or circumvent institutes of oppression, and we will create and support a public sovereign money system to promote fairness and stability.
I am tired of war. I know we can have Peace, and end war. There are steps. It takes some effort. It is NOT impossible to achieve Peace and good governance.
One step you can make is to register Green as a Vote for Peace.
The donkey party is the place where progressive politics goes to die (like an elephant burial ground).
The field is fertile for real change to take hold in this country. Most people WANT a viable alternative party. There are two.
Most of each mainstream candidate’s supporters are not supporters. They are blockers, intent on blocking the “other” candidate.
Neither candidate would be a good president. Please do not vote to block. Only vote to support.
Please do not stay away from voting, as a way of voting your non-support and your disgust with our rank-and-vile political system.
Nonvoters have the greatest say, now…provided they turn out to vote, and that they vote Green. Seriously! Arise. Resist. Revolt (and keep it peaceful).
There is something we can do together, this campaign season, that will change politics and embolden people to actually vote their hopes and not their fears.
There is a way to vote early that nobody has talked about. It is legal. It is effective. It will work. It is a game-changer. You are key to this.
Here is the challenge. Between now and August, I would like everyone to do an experiment that WILL have an effect. Don’t be shy.
If you are someone intent on voting to block a lousy presidential candidate, please “vote” by registering Green or helping us get on your state’s ballot, if you can’t register.
You don’t even need to switch back before November, if you are on the fence about this.
If you are someone who will not vote, or who will write in someone’s name, please register Green to show that you are awake and you want your vote to count for real change.
If you are someone with student debt, “I feel your pain.” After graduating with a Ph.D. and languishing with student loans for years, I know what you are going through.
You count around 43 million in number. Please register Green.
If you are sick of how alternative candidates are kept out of the presidential debates, register Green ASAP.
Do you get the picture? Our numbers are huge. Once we show each other this, it will be much easier to vote in a courageous manner, come November.
Please vote for the Green nominee. But, “vote” early by registering green.
Oh, and don’t forget to support THIS candidate. Please donate. Small amounts add up! I appreciate the help.
