I just gave $27 to Jill Stein. You should too. As Hillary advocates for more fracking, and Trump says global warming is a hoax, Stein is pushing for a "Green New Deal."
Above: Now that Bernie has conceded to Hillary (after Hillary and the DNC conspired to undermine our democracy - see my last blog posts), progressives and independents must choose who they will support. Something to consider, is that Hillary is a promoter of fracking, which is highly damaging to the environment, and Trump has called global warming a hoax. Both of these stances indicate that our two major candidates don't take environmental problems too seriously - despite the clear evidence that man is indeed making the planet warmer and warmer by constantly spewing fossil fuel exhaust into the atmosphere. Contrast that with the Green Party's Jill Stein, whose platform includes the following:
"Enact an emergency Green New Deal to turn the tide on climate change, revive the economy and make wars for oil obsolete. Initiate a WWII-scale national mobilization to halt climate change, the greatest threat to humanity in our history. Create 20 million jobs by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030, and investing in public transit, sustainable agriculture, conservation and restoration of critical infrastructure, including ecosystems."
Consider giving Jill Stein a $27 donation, as I just did, to continue the fight to clean up the environment, make employment a right, and get money out of politics (http://www.jill2016.com/). Send a message to Hillary, the DNC, Trump, and Republicans, that you don't support plutocracy or fascism.
