From the Desk of Dr. Jill Stein
Green Party Presidential Nominee 2012
To the Ian Schlakman for Congress Team, Supporters and Voters:
A movement for democracy and justice is sweeping the planet, rising up to halt the neoliberal assault on our economy, ecology, peace and democracy. Green Party candidates like Ian Schlakman are the political voice of these growing social movements. Ian brings the energy and vision of the next generation back into the political process to make it truly "of the people". I hope you will join me in supporting his promising campaign.
When I ran for President in 2012, I promoted a comprehensive set of reforms designed to end predatory politics as usual and create a world that works for all of us. Since then the need for deep change has grown to historic proportions, as plutocracy pushes us ever deeper into economic disparity and decline, climate melt down, war profiteering, corporate trade, land grabs, and privatization of food, water, health care and education.
