Women are especially clamoring for the first female president ever. For progressive women, Hillary, Carly and Bernie do not fit the bill! Greens stand strong for women and for all who have been over-looked in this country for too long.
The election year excitement takes it’s toll. It costs those involved energy, time and money. Greens regret seeing people throw it away on Bernie, because the track record of the Disappointingacrat Party has been well proven over the years. Come November of 2016 Jill Stein will be on the ballots, for sure. We sincerely welcome everyone back to support of Jill Stein and appreciate it, but the costs of the Bernie mania will certainly be a hit for the progressive voter.
In 2012 there were only 4 candidates on the presidential ballot that each had enough potential electoral votes, in enough states, to have won. These candidates were on enough ballots in bigger states, even though not on every state ballot. The two you may not have known about were the Libertarian Gary Johnson and The Green Party’s Jill Stein. Thank the corporate media for leaving that out. Thank the overly tough ballot access laws requiring absorbiant amounts of signatures to get on the presidential ballot — if you’re a “third party”.
While Bernie Sanders declares that he is for the people, he has aligned with the “lesser evil” and Greens do not agree that this is strategy. It’s what we have seen over the years as sheepdogging the herd to keep the progressives split in a false hope. To have gotten in this position, rest assured, Bernie WILL owe someone. As we already know, he has vowed to support Hillary if she wins. Where do you go then? If you must go all out for Bernie, at least have an escape plan. We, Greens, will be working overtime, but we will succeed. So you’re welcome to return anytime and help us.
As Greens, we stand strong against the corporate parties and have removed ourselves from them. So we offer the voter a clean and honest vote for progressive values that can’t be bought and we have had well planned solutions in the Green New Deal. If you go to www.Jill2016.comyou can view these for yourself. If you go to www.greenshadowcabinet.us/you can see the sort of new direction Greens would have and the wonderful people filling these positions. Never will you see the revolving door of corporate boardroom members or CEO’s deciding for the wealthy against we the people.
So we can only agree with Dr. Jill Stein when she quotes Alice Walker: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” We won’t give up.
Former co-chair of the Green Party of Florida

Thanks, Bruce Wright, Poor People’ Economic Human Rights Campaign, My Place In Recovery, The Fight for 15, and the Green Party, and Green Shadow Cabinet. Join our Fight for 15 in Florida! We believe that low-wage fast food workers are short-changed every day that goes by that they’re not making a living wage from fast-food companies that are profiting billions per year. We believe that no matter what you’re doing, if you’re working hard and still can’t afford to live then there’s a major problem going on. The fast-food industry caters to the growing tourist economies in Florida, and these workers are the life-blood of these stores. It’s time past-due that we treat them with respect and give them the opportunity to make a living wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.
Enough is enough; communities and workers in FL, it’s time to end the fast-food struggle by joining the movement to improve the quality of life for thousands of exploited workers in the fast-food industry in Florida.
