A message of change, on which real hope depends

Please forward this video to your friends and family, and make a donation

In this first video message from Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate addresses the White House's recent agreements to violate the 6th, 7th, and 8th Amendments to the Constitution, to speed up the timetable on the Keystone Pipeline, and to eliminate the national health care standard.

In the message, Dr. Stein says that, "I'm taking about real hope for deep change -- the kind that's breaking out all over. Because so many people like you are standing up and refusing to accept this unprecedented state of inequality, austerity and perpetual war that we're in. Instead, you are demanding the peaceful, just, green future we all deserve. And that's the real source of hope, not only for the holidays -- but for every day, going forward to a better future that's within our reach."

Yes, Jill Stein has long been a leading advocate for single-payer national health care, which is what she means by single-payer Medicare for all.

Dear Jack – Jill Stein is a strong supporter of Move to Amend, and will be taking part next week in Occupy the Courts at the U.S. Supreme Court building. You have your candidate!

Hi Harold – What will you do if Ron Paul doesn’t win the Republican nomination? Support Jill Stein in the general election?

I agree with most of the comments here and would suggest that you ask those who offer some good ideas on how to improve the website, etc. to help you, become part of your volunteer staff.

I am in full support for the green party candidate Jill Stein. If the world shall have green leaders, we shall have a just society full of democracy, respect to human rights, social justice and be able to sustain our environment. If the world will have such leaders, then we shall have no wars, no violation of human rights no weapon of war which destroy mankind and every person shall be ready to listen to each other. We shall all be friends and just to everyone.

I am hopeful today that I heard this message! Please discuss in more detail your opinions and actions that we can hold you accountable too if you are elected. Long term goals, short term goals, and how you will not only change SOPA, Indefinate Detention and Corporate Personhood, but Education, Student Debt, Housing crisis, and Healthcare! I know in my city (mayor Stephanie Minor) We have an abundance of empty buildings, and hotels, – I am curious why, with our huge numbers of homeless people (!), they cannot be used to house the homeless and poor? I also think many cities have this issue. More then 30,000 children are homeless in Michigan and California and almost all states are facing this crisis, hasen’t anyone looked into all the buildings that can be reformed social living economies?

Hi Misha, see:

Jill Stein is committed to protecting immigrant rights, including the rights of undocumented workers.

What is controversial to one person is common sense to another, and there are certain to be issues important to you, and to Dr. Stein, which appear controversial to others who support this campaign.

Hi there Misha -

Thank you for the feedback. We are going to do a complete overhaul of the website in the coming weeks, and will be soliciting input at that time. Very helpful. We may use the logo you saw, or a variation of it, or several images at different times. Glad you like it! (I do too).

re: Spanish — we will making an effort to make our website and materials bilingual. There is a long history of bilingual and trilingual political campaigns in this country, especially for progressive independent parties. My grandparents and great grandparents came to an American in which they were greeted by the Socialist, Progressive, Communist, and American Labor parties in their home language — Yiddish. Today, one in six Americans speaks Spanish as a primary language. These voters and communities have been treated terribly by Washington D.C., and they deserve a voice in our politics.

I hope the web changes will make you happy, even if our commitment to bilingualism disappoints you.

Voting for an alternative to the Duopoly political machine of the corporate Dems&Reps is a first step toward forming a vision of a new future based on rational & humane values, institutions and societal goals. We have a long way to go, but until we replace every link that keeps us chained to profit as motivation and rationale for every decision made by the collusion between Corporations and State……we will keep repeating the failed reforms- we now accept & endure—shackling our children & their children to problems of every imaginable kind. It can only end when We the People make the needed choice and vote for the world and society we want and NEED. A vote for status quo gets us nowhere, only further behind. Jill represents a new voice. Vote Green and beyond.

I got my info. both here – & on another blog. If this is incorrect, then I stand corrected. The reality is that we have an untrustworthy government.

Here’s my reading of the NDAA to refute yours. "Additionally, this legislation codifies in law for the first time authority to detain Americans that has to this point only been claimed by President Obama. According to subsection (e) of section 1021, “[n]othing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.” This means the president’s widely expanded view of his own authority to detain Americans indefinitely even on American soil is for the first time in this legislation codified in law. That should chill all of us to our cores.

The Bill of Rights has no exemptions for “really bad people” or terrorists or even non-citizens. It is a key check on government power against any person. That is not a weakness in our legal system; it is the very strength of our legal system. The NDAA attempts to justify abridging the bill of rights on the theory that rights are suspended in a time of war, and the entire Unites States is a battlefield in the War on Terror. This is a very dangerous development indeed. Beware." This statement is by Ron Paul. Now I’m no fan of Ron Paul by any means, but if you look around at references to section 1021, you’ll find similar interpretations. Draconian indeed.

This is terrific! Powerful statement, well-presented — and lays out what many of us who have been “silent” believe!

I totally support the Green Party as an alternative to the one party system in America. But we must be accurate in our criticisms of others to be credible. From what I have read, the NDAA excludes Americans from its draconian measures to lock people up & throw away the key. That does not justify it or the Patriot Act, but it is important to not come off as ignorant of the facts on any issue. Please do the research on the issues to not appear to be driven by internet rumors. That being said, the NDAA is just as bad as implied for treating ANYONE on Earth as convicted criminals without charging them & allowing them to defend themselves. The War on Terror is a sham foisted on the World by our own little evil-doers in Washington.

As the expression goes, “Let’s Get This Party Started”. :-)

As a Green a fundamental moral principle I embrace is that the earth is the birthright of all persons, equally. Sadly, the lesson of history is that monopolization over nature is in every nation (including the United States) institutionalized under law. Government has been the instrument by which privilege is secured and protected. The last time in history that a movement arose to peacefully end land and natural resource monopoly was in the late 19th century in response to the writing, lecture tours and campaigning of the reformer Henry George. In my view, Henry George’s proposals held the essential key to achieving true equaity of opportunity as well as sustainable use of our natural resources. I urge my fellow Greens to examine Henry George’s ideas on how government ought to raise its revenue. Our Green colleagues in Ontario, Canada have already done, as well as Greens in Australia.

Henry George developed a system of political economy that built on observations a century earlier by Thomas Paine and Benjamin Franklin that the control over land (and nature generally) is a privilege for which the beneficiary owed to society just compensation. Paine and Franklin learned their political economy from the Physiocrats of France, who attacked landed privilege in their own country as the reason why so many suffered poverty. What they termed “ground rent” (i.e., the annual potential value of land in all its forms) is the legitimate property of all — the common fund with which to pay for public goods and services.

Today, because our government collects so little of this common fund, our economic system is plagued by land hoarding, land speculation and despoilation of our natural resource-laden lands. Thus, a central Green policy ought to be principled tax reform as called for by these great reformers of our past history.
