There’s been a media blackout about any of the third parties running for president this year, but thankfully Bill Moyers interviewed both Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala on his show. They are both running on the Green Party ticket for President and Vice President.
This is Jill Stein on MTV for about 5 seconds (it feels very overedited). I’m glad she got some exposure, but the questions were generic. So funny that they had squealing guitar noises in the background during the “interview”.
The first ever online presidential debate will take place Oct. 18 at 7pm EST/4pm PST and will include Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein.
This is a revolutionary idea that includes the use of social media to keep the people interactive. It will be available through Google+ hangouts and the 5th topic of discussion for the evening will be determined based on user response.
Finally, the alternative (and stronger) options for presidency will be heard. Spread the word.
6 p.m. Central Time Thursday, October 18.
Jill Stein has proven herself not only a capable debater, but a strong, vital one—watching her against Romney in the 2002 Massachusetts Gubernatorial race is something special. We need a voice who can a) ACTUALLY ANSWER QUESTIONS (Democratic and Republican candidates alike will take one word from a paragraph-long question to prompt unrelated tangents that make their platform sound interesting, not to address an issue), and, b) intelligently oppose the corporatocracy of Obama-v-Romney, offering alternative solutions to the mainstream hoopla. If Jill Stein makes it into the Presidential Debates voters across the United States will be forced to confront the pick-your-poison-ism of the two-party system, and some will certainly realize that other options are available to them. Voting Green will catch on like wild-fire if only Jill got the media attention she (and her INCREDIBLE campaign) deserve. My series “A Case for Green” is ever-drafted and never published. I won’t let this election season go by without more updates, though, and in the meantime I urge you to help us Occupy the CPD.
—”You know, they always say, Piers, in the private sector competition is good, right? Isn’t that what we always hear? Well, how come competition isn’t good for president? Why has it been 20 years since we’ve seen any third voice in a presidential debate? Because these two parties will — they make the rules and they will not let anyone else win.” GOV. JESSE VENTURA

Here’s my result for the political compass test that has been going around Tumblr. I’ve done these tests before, so I wasn’t surprised by the result until I clicked the option to see my position along with the positions of the prominent candidates for U.S. President.
I am dismayed. I thought maybe somebody might be at least on the same side of one axis with me. You know, that “lesser of two evils” guy? The two party system is soooo far from representing my needs!
