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."

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.
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.
The Bill of Rights has no exemptions for âreally bad peopleâ 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.
As the expression goes, “Let’s Get This Party Started”. :-)
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.
