“We’re talking about breaking up the banks.”
“We’re talking about electoral reform to get the money out of politics so that our votes will not be bought.”
“We’re talking about health care as a human right.”
“We’re talking about putting a moratorium on foreclosures.”
“We are calling for bringing the troops home now.”
“I also want to talk about forgiving student debt, because we should be bailing out our students, not the big banks.”
“In our campaign, we are not just talking about environmental justice, and economic justice, and racial justice. We’re also talking about generational justice because young people are getting the short end of the stick on the cost of education, becoming indentured servants.”
Who’s talking, here? It’s certainly not Mitt Romney. You won’t hear Barack Obama talking like this, either. Those big campaign donors on Wall Street don’t like to hear President Hope talking about economic justice.
It’s Jill Stein doing the talking in the quotes you see above, at a meeting with voters this month in Brooklyn, New York. Jill Stein is running for President with the Green Party in 2012, and she’s probably already on the ballot where you live.
Dr. Stein has a lot more to say, too. Check out a sample in a video of her speech there.
