The Largest Minority
January 16th, 2008
Rest assured that we will continue to hold Disney/ABC and General Electric/NBC accountable for their exclusion of Dennis Kucinich from the last two debates. So rather than give last night’s Democratic “debate” (perhaps “Democratic” ought to be in quotes too) any more coverage than it’s already gotten, I present to you a debate with serious candidates actually talking about real issues – the Green Presidential Debates.
If you want to know what the slight differences are in the rehashed Nixon healthcare plan being proposed by Clinton, Obama, and Edwards, you can find plenty of lengthy filler on YouTube. I’m sure you’ll also be able to hear the word “change” used as a marketing device to sell their conservative platforms, and even learn what their favorite colors are too. Over here on the genuine Left however, we have real discussions and aren’t apologetic about it. The 2008 Green Presidential candidates are Jared Ball, Kent Mesplay, Cynthia McKinney, Kat Swift, and Jesse Johnson. Cindy Sheehan and Ralph Nader are also featured. Hat tip to John Geraghty for the vids.
American hero Ralph Nader has not decided to run yet, so he is not a declared candidate for the Green Party Presidential nomination at this time. However, he was invited to speak since he’s a fucking rockstar and advocate for democracy.
