Jill Stein: Time To Reject The ‘Lesser-Evil’ & Stand Up For The Greater Good ?

The presidential campaign season is upon us, and the corporate-aligned, two-party duopoly is dominating the conversation taking place in American media. In turn, the corporate-funded media is selling only candidates whose agendas align and don’t disrupt commercial fundraising.

In this winner-take-all system, voters are left to choose between the lesser of two evils.

And Americans are growing weary of the status quo. Indeed, over 58 percent of Americans believe a third U.S. political party is needed because the Republican and Democratic parties “do such a poor job” representing the American people.

Support for endless war, crony capitalism, the Orwellian police state, apartheid in Israel and much more — the establishment that drives these policies is not only ignoring the cries for an alternative that will bring about real change and real peace, but it’s purposely leaving third-party candidates out.

As the fight for a viable third party rages on, Dr. Jill Stein announced her presidential campaign on June 22. She’s running on the Green Party ticket — the only party to not accept corporate funding. And her platform prioritizes people, the planet and peace over profits.

I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Stein about the struggle for a third party in the United States and hear her take on issues that matter most to the people. Take a look.
