Support for Jill Stein


Is Hillary Clinton less dangerous than Donald Trump? Hillary is the ultimate militarist who promoted the Iraq war and the toppling of Kadafi in Libya, which have led to death, chaos, and ISIS in the Middle East. Let’s not forget her support of the military coup that ousted the democratically elected president of Honduras, making that country one of the most violent places in the world — so many have been killed, including internationally acclaimed human rights activist Berta Cáceres. And the no-fly zone over Syria, Hillary could get us in major conflict with Russia, a nuclear power.

People who are afraid of Donald can support Jill Stein and then go back to Hillary if Jill doesn’t get high enough in the polls. They can use their bargaining power with Hillary, who is getting most of her campaign money from Wall Street and other wealthy interests. Voters can hold her feet to the fire and demand she not take this dirty money, that she release her paid speeches to Wall Street, and that she stop promoting fracking.

Let’s support Jill, who’s for the people, the middle class, and the environment. Voters can always get back on the Hillary or Donald train.
