NJ Greens oppose South Jersey gas pipeline

The Green Party of New Jersey stands in strong opposition to the new gas pipeline project proposed by South Jersey Gas.

This pipeline would run 22 miles through protected areas of the Pinelands National Reserve, in sensitive forest areas in Cumberland, Atlantic, and Cape May Counties.

The risk the pipeline poses to the environment and human water supplies greatly outweighs any benefit that may come from its construction.

DC Statehood Green Party calls for Electoral College vote proportional to popular vote



Party cites the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The DC Statehood Green Party is calling on Electoral College members in eleven states to assert their constitutional mandate by proportionally allocating their electoral votes for president.

Statehood Greens cited the Malapportionment Penalty Clause of the second section of the 14th Amendment (http://constitutionus.com/#x14s2) pursuant Title Two Section Six of the United States Code (2 U.S.C.§6) in their appeal to electors in the eleven states who are pledged to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

Rocky De La Fuente to file lawsuit in Florida alleging election fraud

GreenPartyRadio.com has learned that within the next few hours Rocky De La Fuente, 2016 Presidential candidate of the American Delta and Reform Parties, will file a lawsuit in Federal court alleging "massive absentee ballot election fraud within Broward County in the 2016 Florida general election".

De La Fuente, who was a guest on The Green Party Radio Show on Sunday, is also challenging a Florida election law which states that an automatic recount cannot occur unless the margin of victory is less than 0.25%. De La Fuente claims that this encourages election fraud because election officials can be reasonably confident "that the challenged statute will prevent any examination and/or discovery of their unlawful conduct absent the existence of extraordinary third party testimonial evidence."

De La Fuente files for recount in Nevada, mainstream media ignores effort

Roque De La Fuente and his family (Courtesy Rocky2016.com)

Another recount has been filed, this one in Nevada, but the mainstream media is ignoring it. Could it be because Clinton won Nevada?

FT. LAUDERDALE, Florida, November 30, 2016 – After withdrawing his presidential recount petition in Wisconsin, “Rocky” Roque De La Fuente almost immediately filed for a recount in Nevada. De La Fuente was the first to file for a recount in Wisconsin but withdrew his petition when Jill Stein duplicated his effort and the estimated cost of the recount soared to more than $3.5 million. He has already posted payment for the recount in Nevada.

Early recount results in Wisconsin - Jill's vote total up 242.9%, Castle votes switched to Trump and Clinton

by Don Ellis
Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

It's still early, in fact only one town, but the Wisconsin recount is already showing shocking discrepencies in the vote totals. Jill Stein and Gary Johnson votes simply didn't get reported, while another third party candidate who received 3 votes in the town had his votes switched to Trump or Clinton.

The town of Menominee breaks down its results in two reports: Ward 2, and Wards 1 and 3, 4, and 5. The Ward 2 results were almost perfect, they missed one vote for Gary Johnson. OK, not too bad.

But the vote totals for Wards 1 & 3-5 underwent a shocking change:

Trump went from 259 votes to 257 votes.

Clinton went from 821 votes to 820.

Jill went from 0 votes to 17 votes.

Johnson went from 0 votes to 11 votes.

In Menominee, Jill went from a total of 7 votes to a total of 24 votes.

That difference right there, while only covering 1,308 votes, gives all the proof anyone should need as to why a recount was needed.

The official story was "different by 17 due to human error. Wards 1,3,4,5 didn’t get added to tally sheet." They forgot to mention that 3 votes for Darrell Castle got credited to either Trump or Clinton as they only give an "explanation" if there was a mistake of 10 or more votes.

How do votes for a third party candidate get credited to the candidates from the Violet Party? "Human error"? If you believe that, the dam across the street from my house is for sale, I can give you a great deal on it.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission has provided a link to the spreadsheet reporting the official recount totals, CLICK HERE to go to the page where the link is posted.

A whole lot of Greens owe Jill a huge apology right about now.



Dr. Jill Stein blasts Trump campaign’s effort to delay Michigan recount at taxpayers’ expense

Photo courtesy GP.org
In response to this afternoon’s filing of an objection to recount nearly 4.8 million votes cast for President in Michigan, Dr. Jill Stein’s campaign, which filed the historic request yesterday, blasted the objection as a “shameful” and “outrageous” attempt to undermine democracy. The objection from Donald Trump’s campaign will add significant costs and confusion to a recount that is already being obstructed by some in order to keep voters from verifying the accuracy, security and integrity of the election.

“The recount in Michigan, which has been driven by an outpouring of grassroots support in the state – will go forward,” said Dr. Jill Stein, the 2016 Green Party candidate for President. “The Michigan Board of State Canvassers and Director of Elections has been a model of professionalism in moving this recount forward in an efficient, transparent manner. Yet the Trump campaign’s cynical efforts to delay the recount and create unnecessary costs for taxpayers are shameful and outrageous.”

Five big reasons to support the recounts, with one criticism and one suggestion

GPUS Media Coordinator Scott McLarty

by Scott McLarty
ScottMcLarty@yahoo.com

(1) Greens have an interest in defending election integrity, especially as an independent alternative party that faces unfair rules and practices like anti-democratic ballot-access laws in many states and exclusion from debates.

The Green Party is an independent political party that has no connection with the Democratic or Republican parties, but it's not so independent that it has no stake in the integrity of elections in which Green candidates participate.

Jill Stein Green Party recount campaign explained


By Don Ellis
Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

Our effort to recount votes in those states is not intended to help Hillary Clinton. - Jill Stein

Jill Stein and the Green Party are finally getting extensive coverage from the mainstream media, due to the Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign's efforts in raising money to finance a recount of Presidential votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The question many members of the Green Party keep asking is "Why is she doing this? All she can do is help Hillary get elected."

If you think that all this recount can do is get Hillary elected, you are being incredibly naive. There are several ways in which this recount effort will help the Green Party - but before covering those, I should point out that the one thing this recount won't do is get Hillary elected.

The Green Party of Pennsylvania declares victory in the general election



The Green Party of Pennsylvania's status is elevated from Political Body to Minor Party as a result of the General Election. Row Office candidates Kristin Combs, Treasurer and John J Sweeney, Auditor General, reached 3% of the vote total in their respective races.

This will place the Green Party option on voter registration forms and allow the Green Party of Pennsylvania to place a candidate on the ballot in the event of a special election.

"We entered this race with a very specific goal: win 2% to make sure we start 2017 in the best position possible," said State Treasurer candidate Kristin Combs. "Thanks to Pennsylvania voters, we not only met our goal; we nearly doubled it. I can't wait to get working on the next round of local elections."

"At least 165,000 people voted Green. That is the largest vote total the Green Party has ever achieved in Pennsylvania," said Auditor General candidate John J Sweeney. "I was shocked when I discovered it exceeds Ralph Nader's 2000 total by over 60,000. That is 60% more than Nader's 103,392 votes."

The Green Party of Pennsylvania is independent political party that stands in opposition to the two corporate parties. The Green Party of Pennsylvania stands for grassroots democracy, social justice, nonviolence, and ecology.

Green Party sees need for sustained protest and organizing under Trump



WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party has compiled a set of talking points on the need for intense and sustained protest during the next four years.

• Greens support sustained protest and community organizing against the Trump Administration's expected policies, actions, and appointments. Greens across the U.S. are participating in various protest actions.

"The Green Party and Green candidates and activists represented political revolution throughout the 2016 election year. We'll continue to do so during the next four years and beyond," said Jill Stein, the Green Party's 2016 nominee for president.

Stein/Baraka Campaign calls for immediate resistance to Trump and the failed Two-Party System



The Stein/Baraka campaign calls for sustained and organized resistance to president-elect Donald Trump and the rise of right-wing extremism in the United States. They expressed their solidarity and empathy with those who are traumatized by the election results, and called for an honest and sober reckoning of the collusion between the political establishment and corporate media that led to Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton.

"A New York Times poll reveals that 82% of Americans are literally ‘disgusted’ by this election," said Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party presidential candidate. “This election is a reaction to what voters see as a toxic and corrupt political establishment and represents a wholesale rejection of it. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sabotaged Bernie Sanders, who by all accounts would have easily trounced Donald Trump. Because of Wikileaks, we also know that the DNC actively colluded with corporate media to elevate Donald Trump as a ‘Pied Piper Candidate’ to encourage the most extreme elements of the Republican party,” she said.

Jill Stein files FEC complaint against Trump, Clinton for illegal Super PAC coordination



Today, Monday November 7th, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein filed a complaint at the Federal Election Commission in Washington, DC, against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for illegal coordination with their Super PACs.

Under current FEC regulations, Super PACs, known technically as “independent expenditure-only committees” and colloquially as “dark-money groups,” may raise unlimited sums of money from corporations, unions, and individuals, but are not permitted to contribute to or coordinate directly with parties or candidates. Such coordination would be functionally equivalent to an in-kind donation to the campaign from these dark-money groups.

Stein’s complaint outlined a body of evidence indicating that the Clinton campaign has illegally coordinated activities with Super PACs such as Correct the Record, Priorities USA Action, and American Bridge 21st Century, while the Trump campaign has improperly coordinated activities with Super PACs such as Rebuilding America Now, Make America Number 1, and Great America PAC.

Bernie Sanders write-in: DON'T DO IT!! (Bernie doesn't want you to do it, here's the video)

Hopefully this is the end of this discussion, as The Green Party Radio Network's own Chad Cushman asked Bernie directly if he supports people writing in his name for President. He doesn't (unless you are in Vermont, he said that's OK):





Here's the transcript:

CHAD: Can I ask one question though?

BERNIE: Sure.

CHAD: How do you feel about the write-in thing honestly?

BERNIE: In Vermont I think it's OK 'cause I think Clinton is gonna win. But in some states where it's close I want her to win. So if you want to write me in here I think it's fine. We're not gonna win you understand that?

CHAD: No offense, but I'm not for the write in. I think that you're going to be the best keeping you as my Senator.

BERNIE: OK (laughs loudly)

CHAD: I think you've done a great job as my Senator, I wish that you would have gotten the nomination, and if you ask for my vote and told me right now you wanted my vote I would do it.

BERNIE: Thanks very much, OK.

CHAD: You're a good man, thank you.

BERNIE: Thanks.

Green Party Radio Network founder Don Ellis announces run for KY House of Representatives, District 4

Don Ellis (photo courtesy Don Ellis for KY House)


Don Ellis, founder of The Green Party Radio Network and producer/co-host of The Green Party Radio Show, has announced his candidacy for the Kentucky State House of Representatives in the 4th District.

The 51-year-old Grand Rivers resident, who will be running a write-in campaign, recently filed the necessary paperwork with Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergren Grimes.

Don's general campaign will concentrate on the Green Party's four key pillars that make up the foundation of worldwide Green Parties:

  • Ecological wisdom
  • Social justice
  • Grassroots democracy
  • Nonviolence

More specifically, as a former Collective Bargaining Agreement Negotiator for the Service Employees International Union Heatlhcare of Illinois & Indiana, Don plans to implore his fellow Representatives to fight for more union jobs in Kentucky while also repelling Republican efforts to make Kentucky a right-to-work state.

Along with increased union membership, if elected Don plans to do everything in his power to make sure that all Kentuckians have the right to earn a living wage.

His first act immediately upon taking office would be to fight for a statewide $10 an hour minimum wage by the summer of 2017, increasing by $1.00 per year until reaching $13 an hour by July 1, 2020.

Don would also fight to eliminate Kentucky Income Taxes on families making less that $20,000 per year, making up the difference with a slight increase on anyone making over $150,000 annually.

As a direct descendant of a pair of Between The Rivers families, he would also fight the United States Forest Service if they make any attempt to deviate from "The Promise" that was made to the people who were displaced to create Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. He would also fight to increase funding for the maintenance of our cemeteries and the roads we use to visit them.

Don has never held public office, but as a single father to a 12-year-old son he understands the struggles of working families. His past experience as a Union Contract Negotiator and Employee Adviser make him uniquely qualified to fight for the financial well-being of the ever-shrinking middle class in Kentucky.

In addition to his duties as a single father and caregiver to his elderly father, Don is a sports official with the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. He has also volunteered as an umpire for charitable causes and as a coach for Little League basketball in Livingston County.

In addition to his duties running the Green Party Radio Network, Don is also a former local radio personality, having hosted The Outlaw Hours and The Saturday Night All-Request Show on 93.3 WKYQ in Paducah.

Local media outlets can contact Don Ellis by emailing Don@GreenPartyRadio.com. His website is GreenPartyRadio.com. He can also be contacted on his Don Ellis For KY House Facebook Page.

Don has already been endorsed by Arn Menconi, Green Party candidate for U. S. Senate out of Colorado, and is expecting several more official endorsements by the end of the week.

Write-in voting rules for President for all 50 states

SUMMARY: STATE LAWS REGARDING PRESIDENTIAL BALLOT ACCESS FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION 


GreenPartyRadio.com has compiled a list of ballot requirements for Presidential candidates for all 50 states. The list was compiled by NASS.

This list also contains the numbers of each relevant state statute.

This should, once and for all, eliminate any and all questions about whether or not a person can write in Bernie Sanders for President in his or her state.

Only eight states will count the votes of people who write in the names of candidates who have not filed the necessary paperwork to appear as a write-in candidate:


  • Alabama
  • Iowa
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont


In addition, Wyoming will count write-in votes if the candidate files paperwork within two days after the election.


Reviewed February 2016

This document provides a summary of the laws in each state relevant to the placement of a candidate for president on the general election ballot, and the requirements for a presidential candidate to run as a write-in candidate. Generally a presidential candidate nominated by a political party that meets certain criteria is placed on the general election ballot. This criteria is often based on a threshold number of votes cast at a recent election for a particular office or offices. A number of states provide an alternative mechanism for an organization to qualify in order to nominate candidates, for example by filing a petition or having a certain number of voters affiliated with the organization.

Additionally, all states have a procedure for independent candidates, and in some cases individual presidential candidates of a political organization, to obtain ballot access. Most states also permit a presidential candidate to be a write-in candidate, and many of these states require that the candidate file a notice prior to the election.

The summary for each state includes the timeframes for certifying the names of the candidates for president and vice-president and the names of the presidential electors; the requirements for a political party to be eligible to nominate a presidential candidate; the number of signatures required on a petition in order for a presidential candidate to obtain ballot access; a description of any additional ballot access methods where applicable; and the timeframes required for filing a notice in order to be a write-in candidate for president. It is important to note that the information in this document is based on a NASS review of relevant state ballot access requirements.

Beware Camilo Garcia and the "Jill Stein Activists" group on Facebook

by Don Ellis
Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

I have some shocking news to report, folks. I have been banned from a Jill Stein group on Facebook.

Yes, me. Banned. From a Jill Stein group.

I am in a state of shock as I type this, I was pretty sure that between running this website - Green Party Radio - and spending two hours a week hosting (and a hell of a lot more preparing for) a radio show called The Green Party Radio Show - that I was doing a pretty good job of showing my dedication to the Green Party in particular and the progressive cause in general.

Don Ellis will be hosting a brand new live podcast, "The Green Progressive" on General Public Radio starting Sunday, October 2 at 11 AM CT. Be sure to tune in!! 



I shared my extremely anti-Clinton and anti-DNC article "If the Democrats REALLY wanted to keep Trump out of office, they would have nominated Bernie" in the "Jill Stein Activists" group on Facebook. I posted it there not long after I posted it here on the website, and it was hugely popular. It had received over 100 likes and 25 shares in the four hours before I took a little nap this morning.

When I woke up, I posted it there again, because the group has over 14,000 members and people often miss posts. I never double-post any of our GreenPartyRadio.com articles, but this one was so popular on this particular page that I thought it warranted a re-post.

It again was loved by the group, getting 18 likes and a few comments in 18 minutes. Then a moderator named Camilo Garcia hopped into the conversation, telling me that she was going to delete the post and ban me from the group because "the post was inappropriate" and "this is a Jill group. Bernie is over."

This person obviously didn't read the story, or he/she would have known that it in no way said anything about Bernie not being over. It is clearly nothing more than an anti-DNC article defending us Greens from the attacks we are getting saying it will be our fault if Donald Trump gets elected.

Greens (and Independents and others reading this because you are voting Jill 2016), watch out for seemingly pro-Jill Facebook groups. If you get too popular there, you can be banned for writing anti-Hillary and anti-DNC news.

Stay away from the "Jill Stein Activists" group, whatever you do!!

If the Democrats REALLY wanted to keep Trump out of office, they would have nominated Bernie

President Bernie Sanders.

That's what everyone would have been calling him starting in early January of next year, if not for the Democratic National Committee and their insistence that Hillary Clinton be the party's nominee for the November election.

Before I go any further, I'm sure many of you are wondering why I am writing an article about "President" Bernie Sanders on a Green Party Media page. Actually, it started with my father.

My dad is a retired Ironworker and a life-long "vote blue, no matter who" kind of guy. I always respected him for it, for most of his life the Democrats were the party of the working class, and many of them were quite progressive. It was a given that all unions would endorse Democrats in every race in this country.

Now he's retired and in his 70's, and he's all about keeping Trump out of office (which is a noble cause, of course).

I'm still registered as Dem when I voted for Bernie. I want to vote for Jill Stein. Can I vote for Jill in the General Election if I'm still registered as a Democrat?

by Don Ellis
Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

WARNING: Hillary trolls' new strategy 

I'm still registered as Dem when I voted for Bernie. I want to vote for Jill Stein. Can I vote for Jill in the General Election if I'm still registered as a Democrat?

I have seen this exact question copied and pasted to start a thread in several Jill/Green Facebook groups during the last week or so.

All it does is waste people's time, responding to the question, and having less-informed people wondering if they need to change their party affiliation before the general election.

You can vote for anyone you want in any general election in any state, it doesn't matter what party you are affiliated with.

Don't let anyone try to tell you any different.

And don't waste time that you could be using to promote Jill and the Green Party. That's what the HillBot trolls want, don't fall for their BS.

Other HillBot trolls will jump into the thread, telling you to change your registration to Green before the general election.

This is 100% not necessary, and all it can do is possibly leave you not registered at all in the general election.

Keep up the great work folks, keep spreading the word about Jill and the Green Party platform.

Don't feed the trolls.

Jersey Greens to meet October 3

Join your fellow progressive neighbors in Gloucester County, New Jersey and learn how we can build the Green Party in our area.

The Green Party is growing rapidly in New Jersey, and we are forming local chapters across the state that can organize and take the bold steps needed to end the domination of the 2 corporate parties.

At this meeting, we will also be recruiting volunteers for Jill Stein's presidential campaign.

  • Getting off fossil fuel by 2030 to stop climate change
  • A Green New Deal jobs program that would provide good jobs to replace and repair our crumbling infrastructure as well as protect our planet.
  • Making higher education tuition-free to all
  • Single-payer health care as a right

The buzz about the Green Party and Jill's campaign is growing every single day. Help us continue to keep this revolution moving forward. RSVP for this event today!

Dr Jill Stein, Presidential candidate of the Green Party, returns to Providence for a September 23 1 PM speech in Sapinsley Hall on the Rhode Island College campus in an event sponsored by the RIC Environmental Club. Dr Stein, fresh from standing with the Standing Rock Sioux confronting the Dakota Access Pipeline will have tales from the resistance to the fossil fuel companies all over the country.

Dr. Jill Stein, Ajamu Baraka speak out on police killing of Keith Lamont Scott



By Don Ellis
Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

Another person of color has died at the hands of a local police department in this country, and as would be expected, people are not happy about it.

Keith Lamont Scott, a disabled father of seven, was killed by the Charlotte (N.C.) Police Department on Tuesday. The official police story is that he brandished a gun, but a story published by U.S. News & World Report reports a different scenario:

But a woman who claims to be Scott's daughter live-streamed a video, where she said he was not carrying a weapon and that he was reading a book while waiting for the bus to drop his son off from school.  
"The police just shot my daddy four times for being black," the woman said.

The shooting has led to riots and protesting in Charlotte late Tuesday and early Wednesday, with about 12 police officers being injured in the violent protests, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The Green Party US and Green Party Korea issued a joint statement condemning President Obama's decision to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea and Japan.

According to the American government's Missile Defense Agency, "The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) element provides the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) with a globally-transportable, rapidly-deployable capability to intercept and destroy ballistic missiles inside or outside the atmosphere during their final, or terminal, phase of flight."

Contact the Debate Commission, tell them to include Jill Stein

 Commission on Presidential Debates

Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

The Presidential debates are now less than a week away, and so far the Commission on Presidential Debates has continued to insist that neither Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein nor Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson will be allowed to join the one-party oligarchy candidates on the debate stage.

While we certainly should protest by not watching the debates in their current exclusionary format, it is not too late to contact the members of the debate board and insist that they include all candidates who are on the ballot in enough states to win the Presidential election.

Stein, Green Party call for voters to protest Presidential debates

Green Party leaders are urging voters across the U.S. to express their anger in response to an announcement from the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) on Friday that alternative-party candidates would be barred from the debates.

"Voters deserve the right to know about all the candidates who'll be on the ballot on Election Day. The CPD has violated that right by rigging the debates. Americans should protest loudly and demand that control over the debates be taken away from the CPD," said Dr. Cecile Lawrence, co-spokesperson for the Green Party's National Women Caucus and 2010 candidate for U.S. Senator from New York.

Green presidential nominee Jill Stein and running mate Ajamu Baraka have published a call for protest and civil disobedience at Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island, the site of the first debate on Monday, September 26.

"The debate rules aren't meant to block 'unviable' candidates. They're designed to stop alternative-party candidates from becoming viable," said Julia Willebrand, co-spokesperson for the Green Party's National Women Caucus and Green candidate for State Senate in New York's District 31.

UPDATE: Fox Business to host Town Hall Meeting with Dr. Jill Stein, Friday, September 23 at 9 PM ET



John Stossel, host of Stossel on Fox Business Network, will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting with Green Party Presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, the network announced today.

The Town Hall Meeting, which will be broadcast live on Fox Business Network, has been moved to Friday, September 23 at 9:00 PM ET. The meeting will be held in New York City, and tickets are free, according to a post on Stossel's Facebook page.

Stossel is a well-known backer of Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, so at least he isn't in the pockets of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

GPR will have a full recap of the meeting during our Sunday, September 25 episode, which will broadcast live at 9 AM ET on Blog Talk Radio.

Jill Stein Labor Day statement



Green Party Presidental candidate Dr. Jill Stein released the following statement on Labor Day Monday, September 5, 2016:

On this Labor Day, working people are experiencing an economic emergency. The economy is rigged to allow the rich to get richer while ordinary Americans are thrown under the bus. The economy is controlled by two corporate parties that have created an economic crisis, and a crisis in democracy. We need to reflect on what we must do to transform economic and political systems so they serve the people, not just the elites.

Unbiased poll shows Jill Stein at 20.8%

by Don Ellis
Don@GreenPartyRadio.com

According to a poll currently being conducted on icitizen.com, Green Party candidate Jill Stein is performing much better in a 4-way Presidential race than what is being reported anywhere by the mainstream media.

Our friend and comrade Mandy Kinney, host of #Just Sayin' With Mandy Kinney on the Berniecrats Radio Network, was kind enough to share this piece of information on the Berniecrats' Facebook page, and we owe her a huge piece of gratitude for doing so.

The poll started on Monday, August 29, and as of this morning when I placed my vote for Jill Stein, the race was extremely close:
  1. Hillary Clinton, 31.9%
  2. Donald Trump, 29.3%
  3. Jill Stein, 20.8%
  4. Gary Johnson, 16.2%
  5. Someone else, 1.2%
As I am typing this, there have been 5,179 votes cast in the poll. According to their website, icitizen is "a nonpartisan civic engagement app that facilitates open communication and collaboration between citizens and their elected leaders to shape the policies that affect their lives."

GPR Episode 2 - Sunday, 9 AM ET



Episode #2 of Green Party Radio will air live at 9 AM ET Sunday on Blog Talk Radio.

In honor of Labor Day, and because both Larry (International Brotherhood of Teamsters) and Don (Service Employees International Union) are former union contract negotiators, this week's show is dedicated to all of the hard-working Americans who make up the 99% that the Green Party and Dr. Jill Stein are fighting for.

Continuing the revolution under Dr. Jill



by Ashley Davis

Just over a month ago, we were gearing up to march our movement into Philly, with the president of the people leading the way. Leaders can always walk into a room and command an audience, but what Bernie Sanders did was give millions of young and old alike the courage to stand up ourselves and say, ‘Yeah, ya know we don’t like that. It’s not right, and we’re gonna fix it – together’. That is the fire we held. There was no talk of incremental change or the lesser of two evils. We don’t have time for that. In the words of the inspiring Nina Turner, “The cause is right, and the time is now”.

Millions of us are listening to a man who has gone back on his word. Sanders told us repeatedly, “We’re not a movement where I can snap my fingers and tell you or anybody else what they should do, because you won’t listen to me. You shouldn’t. Alright, you make these decisions yourself” (MSNBC Town Hall, 4/25/16).

Taking on the establishment is opening Pandora’s box, and we have to be willing to stand together in unity when the attacks come. A month ago no one was settling on Clinton or Trump, and we damn well shouldn’t be now. We are at a crucial time in our country’s existence. Our actions, or lack thereof, will have significant effects on generations to come. We don’t have 8 more years of failed criminal, economic, or social justice. We don’t have 8 years to sit around while we frack flames into every faucet in America.
