Mitt Opens the Door for Green Party Candidates, Dr. Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala

Posted: Updated:

Who on earth is Dr. Jill Stein?

Answer: Dr. Jill Stein is the Green Party's presidential candidate, she is challenging the voters in the land of the free and the brave to act beyond the status quo of two-party politics at the eleventh hour.

American voters have an opportunity to change the course of political history in this country by electing Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and vice presidential candidate Cheri Honkala in November, yet will we be brave and free enough to do so?

Why is the mainstream media utterly ignoring these brilliant women who have created a platform, The Green New Deal, that encompasses the truly significant time sensitive challenges that we are facing with interconnected sustainable solutions to our most urgent problems?

Dr. Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala are not "camera-ready" politicos; they are powerful, intelligent, dare I say "ballsy" women, who are showing the world that "Yes We Can" get the important solutions implemented without corporate American back-room deals with the good 'ol boys. Jill and Cheri are proving that 'Yes We Can" pay for these sustainable solutions with transparency and common sense. Only when and if Wall Street and corporate interest via lobbyists are immediately stopped from controlling both science and politics in this country .

Throwing away our votes on Mitt or Barack, "the lesser of two evils," only furthers America's impotency, while countries like Brazil and Germany are showing great stamina doing what it takes to move forward on the main issues of energy, education, and health.

Will grassroots Green Party politics be the October surprise?
