• Petition: An Open Letter to Green Party Presumptive Presidential Nominee Jill Stein

     

    Dear Dr. Jill Stein

    Our respectful opinion is that you disregarded the Green Party 10 Key Values and 4 Pillars by acting as the Green Party’s presumptive nominee and pandering to Bernie Sanders to join the Green Party’s presidential ticket. There is a primary, and several other excellent candidates are seeking the Green Party’s presidential nomination.

    How can you possibly support a war criminal like Bernie Sanders? Are you willing to sell out the Green values of nonviolence and social justice in a desperate effort to win enough votes to secure federal funding for a future election? This is not building an alternative; it is creating just one more corrupt political party that is willing to sell its soul for votes.
    We want to help grow a Green Party that remains true to the values that it claims to represent. We want Green Party candidates to earn millions of votes, but not if we have to accept a Green nominee who has consistently voted to finance the murder of millions of people throughout his career as a member of Congress. We reject a politician who has welcomed and subsidized the military-industrial complex as a job provider. We reject a politician who has had the police arrest peaceful protesters who opposed his support for genocide. We reject a politician who supports the repressive apartheid regime in Israel. We reject a politician who has dismissed the idea of reparations to the descendants of African slaves who built this nation and its wealth, and who have been persecuted, oppressed, and marginalized for centuries.

    There are no short-cuts to a revolution against the ruling class through the Democratic Party. The Bernie Sanders campaign is a get-rich-quick scheme that can’t succeed.

    You seem to be disconnected from the implications of your actions.

  • Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front

    By Wendell Berry

    Love the quick profit, the annual raise,
    vacation with pay. Want more
    of everything ready-made. Be afraid
    to know your neighbors and to die.
    And you will have a window in your head.
    Not even your future will be a mystery
    any more. Your mind will be punched in a card
    and shut away in a little drawer.
    When they want you to buy something
    they will call you. When they want you
    to die for profit they will let you know.

    So, friends, every day do something
    that won’t compute. Love the Lord.
    Love the world. Work for nothing.
    Take all that you have and be poor.
    Love someone who does not deserve it.
    Denounce the government and embrace
    the flag. Hope to live in that free
    republic for which it stands.
    Give your approval to all you cannot
    understand. Praise ignorance, for what man
    has not encountered he has not destroyed.
