I confess that for me is very difficult to speak of a person linked to US policy based only on a video of 9 minutes. I prefer to abstain. Thank you Darren, anyway, for having introduced me Jill.

Gustavo, there is plenty of footage available on YouTube of her being interviewed.

Visit www.youtube.com OR www.google.com and type in Dr. Jill Stein.

She is worth your invested time, as she's a real candidate.

A wasted vote is one where you are voting for somebody you don't want to vote for.

Darren, I spent about 4 hours watching YouTube videos where Dr. Jill is being interviewed or speaking. She is consistent with what she says. I'm not sure how it is in the UK (I spent 3 years in England when I was really young) regarding higher education. Do students have to incur a mountain of debt when they go to college or university? In America, the student loan debt is around a trillion dollars. The good paying jobs are not easy to find; but, there are jobs in food service and retail. Jill Stein has a plan to cancel student loan debt that does not require an act of Congress. You see, the President gets to appoint the Federal Reserve Chairperson. With a stroke of the pen the Chairperson can cancel student loan debt. Jill Stein is gaining supporters. Many of them used to be Bernie supporters.

If you look at Jill2016.com/plan you can see that even her foreign policy takes human rights into account. It's even better than the foreign policy that Bernie Sanders had in his plan.

I lived in MA where it speaks of many things that she has done. I've known of this woman for many years and she is a tireless advocate for first her patients, then the citizens of MA, and now she would be for the Country as well as doing a better job in foreign policy.

I am gladly voting for her.

Top Sanders supporter considering Green Party VP offer: report
http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/289949-top-sanders-supporter-considering-being-green-party-vp
Nina Turner, a former Ohio state senator and a prominent surrogate for Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, is considering an offer to run for vice president on the Green Party's national ticket, cleveland.com reported Sunday night.

Green Party presumptive nominee Jill Stein reached out to Turner, and she’s expected to make a decision in the new few days.

That's excellent news, Roxy.

For those who don't know or are riddled with attitude and a fixed mindset over how politics is run in America, if you cling to the mindset of someone NOT standing a chance of winning, because IN YOUR MIND, they cannot, YOU are contributing to a passive status quo of how politics and democracy IS right now.

How dissatisfied have you got to get, before you start to do something about it. . .?

She has been endorsed by me and others who wish to give peace, justice and a healing planet a chance. Thanks Darren, so very much, for presenting this grand introduction for those who haven't "met her" or would care to know why there's such a large faction who are supporting and backing her. **************Green Star Shower. As most Care2 members gather here daily, to support many "Green" issues---and as Care2 describes itself as being pro-Green---one would think that we would naturally flow toward Dr. Jill Stein.

If Nina Turner accepted Jill Steins offer to be her VP, that would be a super team. Nina has so much energy when speaking to a crowd. She really knows how to rally. Nina is definitely more progressive than Hillary and Tim combined.

This is a good introduction to Dr Stein. I am not, however, convinced that she has a viable chance of even coming close to winning. I agree that we need a viable candidate who will stand up for the people and not corporate interests. I just don't think that there is enough time before the election to get Stein's message out and garner enough support to win the presidential election. There are only 100 days until the election.

Janis I remember. I also know Jill Stein is just another politician who is quite obviously being self-serving instead of the greater good. She knows she cannot win, but will hurt Hillary's chances.

Darren, I appreciate your passion, but I'm afraid you are looking at all this from the view of someone who has not grown up in this country and lived through the issues in this country. It's easy to look from the outside and make snap judgments about politics. I wouldn't presume to encourage you to vote my political feelings in your country.
 

Darren Woolsey (218)
Monday August 1, 2016, 11:54 am
Sorry, Carrie, I disagree with your analysis of Dr. Jill Stein.

If you've lived through the issues of your country, what makes you think Hillary Clinton is going to actually contribute to making things better. . .? You think Hillary Clinton stands for the greater good? Does Hillary Clinton stand for the Minimum Living Wage of $15 an hour, given so many Corporates on Wall Street can earn that in the blink of an eye? What's her attitude to Fracking, Climate Change, War?

I support both Bernie Sanders and Dr. Jill Stein, as they're against further War, in favor of doing something to curtail Climate Change, and both are against Fracking.

There's no snap judgment here. . . I support Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the U.K. He's also Anti-War, Anti-Austerity, and also PRO-renationalization. Privatization hurts the ordinary citizen, especially, when wages are squeezed whilst profits are taken by the elite.

If you're in favor of Hillary Clinton, please demonstrate what her positive qualities are, given she lectured to one audience wearing an expensive suit, about inequality. She, and Bill and Chelsea don't know the first thing about how ordinary everyday citizens have to live, whilst they indulge in multi-millions.

The two-party duopoly wants us to think that third party candidates don't stand a chance. As we now know, Hillary got the nomination because of tactics employed by the DNC. The Clintons are no strangers to corruption. But, instead of doing something about the corruption within the duopoly, the corruption gets ignored or swept under the rug, so to speak. There are things that a President can do that do not require an act of Congress. One of those things is cancelling student loan debt. I wonder why our current President has not done it. He could have issued the order to the chairperson of the Federal Reserve and with a stroke of the pen, the student loan debt would be cancelled. I doubt Hillary Clinton will do it. There are 43 million students in America struggling with student loan debt. I would vote for Jill Stein just for that. I have been a proponent of student loan forgiveness for a very long time. What is the current student loan debt? Over $1 trillion.

Darren, when I was young and not as much of a realist I might have voted for Jill Stein, but now I am realistic and I know that a vote for Stein is a vote for Trump.

Hillary is much more hawkish than I like, but sh is also the MOST qualified person to ever have run for president. I also believe that for every negative about her there are two positives. I also know that her policies will do more for families than Trump policies. Hillary has done much good in her life, and I find it deplorable than so many will ignore that for idealistic and unrealistic ideas. Even if Stein could be elected she would get nothing done because congress would not allow it. She would become the laughing stock of the country and world as congress gobbled her up and spit her out as soon as possible.

Hillary will accomplish much more than any other candidate could. What you and others don't realize is that you are not really supporting Stein ~ you are supporting Trump. Tell me how that will help anyone.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Darren.

Yes, a very good introduction. Although I agree with her on all the issues (especially regarding war), the video was very informative, and I was glad to learn more. I did know that she 'puts her money where her mouth is' and has been arrested for protesting---kudos for that.

BTW, I also read earlier that former Gov. Gary Johnson got a big jump in recent polling as the Libertarian Party pres. candidate, and hopes to break that 15% mark very soon----so he can be included in the debates. He is also getting more support from those in the GOP who are denouncing Trump. So, the Republican movement away from Trump is gaining ground fast. That party is also split.
I'm hoping this will also start a trend for Stein. This could turn out to be a very interesting election.

I'm not meaning to offend anyone, but Clinton has shown us Progressives that we are not important.....repeatedly. It's not just the emails that proved the Dem party was going to sideline Bernie any/every way they possibly could.
It's not just the fracking or her wishy-washiness on the TPP.
And, sure she got rid of DWS, but it was way too little too late (then she re-hired her for her campaign).
But, it was insult on top of insult. Her pick of Kaine didn't help---in fact it did hurt.

So, it seems she really doesn't need us. Many of the convention speakers just reinforced support for the wars and the military funding. There was a strong reach-out to Republicans, who are accepting that. They will vote for her; their numbers are climbing.
And, I have previously stated that I believe Clinton will squash Trump in the debates.
So, she doesn't really NEED us; and I feel that my thinking is upside-down from what Carrie posted above. I have previously voted 3rd party in past decades; and I beg to differ that Nader was a 'spoiler' because that election was so engineered by the GOP (especially FL).
But, now that I have less elections ahead of me than behind me, I have to vote with my head. My principles matter more than ever before. I will be voting for Dr. Jill Stein.

Two months ago, Jill Stein was polling at 2%; now she is at 6 or 7%. If her poll numbers can double she will get to be in the Presidential debates.

For anybody who is equating Jill Stein with Ralph Nader, I want to state that she is not Ralph Nader. I like Ralph Nader and even voted for him. But, people really love Jill Stein. Here's an op-ed that describe 7 key ways that Jill Stein is not Ralph Nader: http://www.inquisitr.com/3359928/seven-key-ways-jill-stein-is-not-ralph-nader/

Jill Stein is NOT who we need. Foreign leaders and Congress will NOT respect her in the extremely unlikely event she should be elected. As I said in a different post, a vote for Stein is a vote for Trump since we have a 2 party system here in America. Try to look long-term, 4 years of Bernie doing his progressive magic and a dream ticket of Sanders/Warren is possible in 2020.

Carrie's point, in her first response, here, has to be given much consideration!
I may be an outlier here, but, focusing on what may have happened to Bernie, which is not about to be changed, and, thus, voting for Jill Stein, or any other 3rd party, can have dire consequences for all that Bernie stands for!!!
The Buddha said that the source of all suffering is craving...craving for things to be different than they are. Right now, THIS MOMENT, Hillary is the only way to keep Trump out of the white House!
Bernie has endorsed both Hillary, and the idea that people need to keep working for the changes he still stands for...once the election is won by Hillary!

No vote that is cast is wasted. Voting for the lesser evil is what has gotten us to this point. We are close to a tipping point. Do we continue over the edge and fall to Tyranny or do we embrace Liberty?

I can not (at this point) support Jill Stein due to her positions on growing the Welfare state which is the opposite of what we need which is Liberty. Sanders was bad but Stein has went beyond him on economic ignorance. She even thinks "free" education and "free" healthcare is a basic human right which makes no sense.

She is at least good on foreign policy and wants to shrink the Military industrial complex which is the other half of the problem.

We can not afford either the Warfare or Welfare state. If you think the solution to too much government intervention is more government intervention then take a vacation to Venezuela, I'm sure the weather is nice.

The Green Party could be great if they learned economics and understood why their fantasy is unreachable.

But the Green Party should still be in the debates as without 3rd parties there is no real debate.

No vote is wasted. That is a lie told by the Oligarchy and main stream media to discourage people from voting for real change. It does not matter which wing of the 2 party system wins as both support the Oligarchy.

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” -James Madison

“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.

"If a person wants to vote for Jill Stein in order to signal concern for the environment and disgust with the major party candidates, it’s perfectly sensible to do so. The same is true for the person who wants to vote for Gary Johnson to show support for individual liberty and free markets. It’s even sensible to vote for the perennial write-in favorite Mickey Mouse, to indicate dissatisfaction with American politics. And, of course, one can always follow H.L. Mencken’s advice and not vote at all."

The naysayers amongst you aren't even passionate enough to persuade. . . maybe try harder.

What CAN Hillary Clinton offer. . . ?
What CAN Donald Trump offer. . . ?

What DID Bernie Sanders and DOES offer. . . ?

Have you actually listened to Dr. Jill Stein speak, or do you get your news and views from mainstream media.
