CNN hosts Green Party town hall on Wednesday night with the Green Party’s nominee Jill Stein and presumptive running mate Ajamu Baraka.

Stein and Baraka will discuss the party’s platform and answer questions from voters, CNN said in a news release.

As the Green Party’s 2012 presidential nominee, Stein won just 470,000 votes nationally, but she could gain additional support this year from supporters of Bernie Sanders who refuse to back Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee.

  4. With 80 days left until the vote, the Green Party and its supporters must become as bold and honest as humanly possible, holding nothing back, and -to use a sports term – “leave it all on the field”. Changing its political label from “It’s In Our Hands” to “We Are the 99%” would be only one example of the required boldness necessary to separate the Green Party, Dr. Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka from the rest, immediately energizing the campaign with a press conference announcing it, along with other creative initiatives to maximize the chances for success – such as announcing the Stein | Baraka “Transition Team”. In other words, the Green Party and all supporters of Dr. Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka must focus on putting the accelerator to the floor from now to November 8.

  5. Thanks for putting this up DS I am sending out to all and everyone!

    • Thanks, Rocket, glad you enjoyed it, too.

      • Truth is infectious…great post Lo. Astonishing and revelatory. Rocket’s cogent summation ‘stellar’ is entirely apt.

        It’s quite a shock to the political system for us to be introduced to real human beings, for a change ~ not only sober, considered, morally educated and socially developed, but deeply intelligent and profoundly coherent!

        I think I have followed something like six hours or more of Green P C coverage this past week, listening to all the participants, and have to say it has revealed a USA I never knew existed! I can actually say I’ve learned more about historical American ethnic orientation & grass roots from the Green convention than I thought was possible.

        The thing is, to where or how does it all move on from here? Power is a mighty beast. The US is a nation of such gargantuan extremes & global reach, it may be unwise to try and predict outcomes, and anyway, every outcome is a new start.

        I guess it all reduces to whether we go by appearances or substance. No matter what gloss or spin is put out by the ‘mainstream’ camps, the facts of (planetary) life will eventually call the shots.

        America “unbound” may surprise us all…

        • Thanks for taking the time to watch all the Green Party videos. There is much more sanity in the US than what is broadcast on TV. I don’t watch TV so I’m less effected by the corporate media and also live in a highly educated, mostly progressive small city. Here we have real Christians who provide food for the homeless and poor population every single night at a nearby church. I’m sure I would have culture-shock if I visited other parts of the US.
