Dr. Jill Stein, 2012 presidential nominee of the Green Party of the United States offers her response to the 2013 State of the Union address by President Barak Obama.
The following remarks were made by Jill Stein on February 12, 2013, before a national video audience in response to the official State of the Union address.
It’s an honor to be here to talk about the real state of our nation. President Obama just finished his speech before Congress. As usual, it was full of inspired, high flying rhetoric, and rosy promises for the future. But it’s important to separate the reality from the stage show. We need a real discussion of where we are, so we can set our priorities right and secure the future for our imperiled families, communities, country and planet.
Georgia Greens are urged to participate in this event Wednesday night:
American democracy is in crisis. The election of Tuesday, November 6th, 2012, is today, and certain aspects of that election are already perfectly clear. Millions of Americans may be denied their inalienable right to vote. Millions more will be denied the right to vote for the candidate of their choice. And the vast majority of Americans will have their votes tabulated by unverifiable electronic voting machines. Meanwhile, the power of a tiny, wealthy minority is greater than ever, causing private campaign funding to reach previously unimaginable levels and making this the most expensive election in U.S. history.
You can do 3 important things to protect the 2012 elections from being stolen:
Livestreamed here tonight at 7:30 pm Eastern, get the rest of the debate. Free and Equal have invited each Presidential candidate on enough ballots to win the Electoral College. Due to a secret (but leaked) agreement they signed between each other, Obama and Romney are refusing to meet their opponents in this debate.
Please consider that when you go to the polls on Tuesday. Please watch the debates tonight. If you have missed the past inclusive debates you can find them archived here.
The Commission on Presidential Debates (a private corporation controlled by the Democrat and Republican Parties, funded by Annheuser Busch and run by a lobbyist for the gambling industry) negotiated a Memorandum of Understanding between the corporate parties to guarantee that their candidates would refuse to debate any other of their opponents seeking your vote in the 2012 Presidential race.
Even so, a number of organizations have organized inclusive debates designed to better server the American electorate. Democracy Now went so far as to stage a debate between the corporate party candidates and those of the emerging political parties, involving the corporate parties in spite of the CPD's deal written to keep voters in the dark on the full range of options before them. Then they did it again. Free and Equal has scheduled two final debates before the polls open Tuesday morning -- Sunday night and Monday night. Stay tuned to this site for details on how you can tune in.
