Green Party LogoIf You Have Hope For Real Change, Then Vote Green Party On Election Day, Tuesday, November 4th

The Green Party candidates for president and vice president, Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente, are an historic ticket. These two women of color, a former six term Democratic Congresswoman from Georgia and a journalist and founder of the National Hip Hop Caucus have teamed up to bring a message of peace, democracy, justice and ecological sanity to the 2008 national elections.

Never in recent history has the momentum and engagement in a presidential race been at this level, but registered voters and Obama volunteers are not the only numbers that are at a record high. So is the gap between rich and poor, foreclosures have risen dramatically, unemployment is on the rise, our planet is in more danger than ever before.
Why should you vote for McKinney & Clemente on the Green Party line?

Because both the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates will continue to spend precious resources – our young people and our money – on war and the military. McCain will bomb his way to victory in Iraq while Obama will redirect resources from Iraq to Afghanistan.
Neither candidate has a convincing plan to control emissions.  And both support new coal and nuclear power plants.
The Green Party candidates, Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente, will drastically cut military spending, stop the building of new nuclear power plants and implement a bold plan that will provide real oversight and control over the Wall Street robber barons.
By voting GREEN this Election Day you’ll be saying:

YES to total withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan!
YES to universal, single-payer health care!
YES to national living wage!
YES to reducing emissions to 25% by 2020
YES to renewable solar power and wind energy!
YES to a crackdown on corporate crime!
YES to ending the drug war!
YES to restoring Constitutional civil rights!
YES to abolishing the death penalty!
YES to electoral and campaign finance reform
YES TO PEOPLE’S NEEDS AND NOT CORPORATE GREED!


Here in New York State, the Green Party is the only party that runs candidates who adhere to these values – your values. When we encourage you to vote for candidates on the Green Party line – you can be sure that what our candidates say and do is based on our party’s platform.    
While both Democratic and Republican candidates have spent record breaking amounts of money on this election from big corporate donors and special interest groups, the Green Party takes no corporate donations. So please show your support by making a secure donation on line at gpnys.org.
