Alternative Visions – Interview with Jill Stein, Green Party Presidential Candidate – 11.04.16

Dr. Rasmus interviews Jill Stein, Green Party presidential candidate, discussing the real issues of the presidential election and her Party’s positions and solutions to the deepening political and economic crisis in the USA. Topics addressed include Green party proposals for tax reform. Reversing job destroying NAFTA, TPP, and free trade treaties. What to do about escalating healthcare costs and prescription drug price gouging. How to eliminate student debt and provide free public college education. Solutions to the growing retirement crisis and how to fund doubling of social security benefits and Medicare for All. Who Jill would appoint to the Supreme Court and reverse Citizens United. Her proposals for immigration reform. And Green party positions on preventing US military confrontation with Russia in Syria, East Europe and with China in the south China seas, toward which the US continues to drift. How claims of ‘lesser evilism’ to vote Democrat to oppose Trump is a dead end and why voting a third party is the only way forward.

David Korten – The Elephant in the Room: What Trump, Clinton, and Even Stein Won’t Mention

VINCENT EMANUELE – Liberal Antiwar Activism is the Problem

Every election season, veterans and their families are used as political pawns. During the Democratic National Convention in Philly, the Khans, the mother and father of a Marine Captain who was killed in Iraq, conveniently filled the role for Hillary Clinton and the Neoliberals. At the Republican National Convention, Patricia Smith gladly took the stage for the Neofascists and talked …

Adele M. Stan – 12 Ways Gary Johnson Is a Hardcore Right-Wing Radical

A recent NBC News/Quinnipiac poll reveals that more than a quarter [3] of young voters—many who had supported the presidential bid of Sen. Bernie Sanders—plan to cast their presidential ballots for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson.

Kevin Gosztola – Your Vote For Jill Stein Is Not A Wasted Vote

When Jill Stein ran as the Green Party’s presidential nominee in 2012, media attention to her candidacy was rare. Now, with two of the most unpopular presidential candidates in history, she has received widespread attention.

Bruce Melton – We Can Have a Healthy Climate With Zero Warming in Our Lifetimes

We can have a healthy climate — a climate with zero warming — in our lifetimes. The message for the last 20 years has been that we have to reduce emissions drastically to prevent dangerous climate change of more than 2 degrees C (3.6 F). This strategy would have likely worked when it was first suggested, but we have delayed …

David Weigel – Third-party candidates lose legal fight to get into presidential debates

A long-shot lawsuit by the Libertarian and Green Party candidates for president has been tossed out by a federal judge, lowering the odds of a third-party candidate making it into this year’s televised debates. “We are exploring our options, with the firm resolve that this case and the larger issue of fair debates are too important to simply allow such an arbitrary dismissal,” said …
