Eight Great Reasons to vote McKINNEY in DC instead of Obama, Nader, McCain
DC voters: Make your vote count on Election Day, Nov. 4, by voting for
Cynthia McKinney for President, Rosa Clemente for Vice President, and
the DC Statehood Green Party slate of candidates!
Here’s why:
(1) Barack Obama doesn’t need your vote!  We already know that Obama
will get a large majority of votes in Washington, DC, and will get all
three of DC’s Electoral College votes.  You can vote for Cynthia
McKinney in DC without worrying that John McCain will win.
(2) Let’s put John McCain in third place in DC!  We can send a
powerful message by making Republicans the ‘third party’ in DC, if
Cynthia McKinney gets enough votes.  If McCain comes in third behind
Cynthia McKinney, it’ll show how strongly DC voters reject the
Bush-Cheney-McCain-Palin agenda!
(3) Ralph Nader is running as an independent candidate.  A vote for
Mr. Nader will have no effect after Election Day.  A vote for Green
candidate Cynthia McKinney is an investment in America’s progressive
antiwar party.  It will pay off for years to come, building the DC
Statehood Green Party locally and the Green Party nationally.
(4) Cynthia McKinney, Rosa Clemente, and the DC Statehood Green Party
do not accept corporate campaign contributions.  Democrats and
Republicans take millions of dollars from corporations that have their
own agenda and put profit ahead of human needs.  The Green Party
represents We The People, not powerful big-business interests.
(5) Cynthia McKinney is a former six-term member of Congress (from
Georgia) with a record of standing up for human rights and equality,
leadership on the environment and foreign policy, speaking out against
the Bush White House while most Democrats remained silent, speaking up
on behalf of poor African American people in New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina.
Ms. McKinney was the first member of Congress to introduce a motion
for impeachment of President Bush for high crimes and abuses of power.
Rosa Clemente is a long-time community activist and Hip-Hop
journalist.  As two women of African ancestry, Cynthia McKinney and
Rosa Clemente are uniquely dedicated to the interests of DC residents.
(5) The Green Party supports DC statehood — real democracy,
self-government, full representation in Congress, and equality for
residents of America’s ‘Last Colony.’  Democratss removed the goal of
DC statehood from the Democratic Party’s national platform in 2004 and
2008.  The Republican Party has never supported democracy for DC.
When you vote for Cynthia McKinney, Rosa Clemente, and the DC
Statehood Green slate, you vote for DC statehood and democracy!
(7) Do you oppose the Bush-Cheney agenda: continuing US occupation of
Iraq and Afghanistan, threats to invade Iran, the anticonstitutional
USA Patriot Act, the $700 billion bailout for Wall Street that doesn’t
help working Americans, immunity for telecomm companies that allowed
spying on US citizens without warrant?  Barack Obama and his fellow
Democratic leaders support these Republican policies — Obama even
voted for increased war funding, the Wall Street bailout, and telecomm
immunity.  Obama opposes real universal health care
(Single-Payer/Medicare For All).  Like Republicans, he wants to leave
for-profit insurance companies and HMOs in charge of our health care.
While Obama promises "change we can believe in," an Obama presidency
will maintain many of the worst Bush-Cheney policies.
A vote for Cynthia McKinney is a vote for a real opposition party.
It’s a vote for bringing US troops home now, a strong social safety
net and livable wages for middle- and low-income Americans, real
universal health care, our constitutional rights and freedoms, solving
America’s fossil fuel addiction, an end to the disastrous ‘war on
drugs’ and record incarceration of US citizens, and a lot more.
Millions of people who plan to vote for Obama actually agree more with
Cynthia McKinney, Rosa Clemente, and the Green Party.  A vote for
McKinney will send a strong message to the next White House on all
these important issues!
(8) DC needs a strong opposition party!  Mayor Fenty and his fellow
Democratic leaders have sold out to major developers, real estate
moguls, and the Federal City Council (semi-secret roundtable of
big-business lobbies).  They’ve tried to take over the DC Public
School system and privatize public property — selling off valuable
public land occupied by public schools, libraries, parks, housing for
the needy, etc.  Mayor Fenty & Co. are giving this land to big
developers at firesale prices and displacing DC’s current
majority-black middle-income and low-income population.
There’s only one DC party that’s standing up for DC residents and
opposing the Fenty-Evans-Federal City Council privatization plan —
the DC Statehood Green Party.

GP RELEASE Greens to progressive, antiwar, Obama & Nader voters: Invest your vote in McKinney

Greens appeal to progressive, independent, antiwar voters: invest your vote in McKinney & Clemente on Election Day
• Greens promote ten videos of McKinney speaking on major issues; Green leaders stress ‘Green Imperative’ of building a progressive US party
• Obama doesn’t represent the views of millions of his own supporters who want real change in US politics; voters who seek a permanent alternative to two-party politics should vote for Green McKinney instead of independent Nader
WASHINGTON, DC — Green Party leaders are urging progressive, independent, and antiwar voters to invest their votes in a growing progressive, antiwar party on Election Day 2008 by voting for the Green Party presidential ticket: Cynthia McKinney for President, Rosa Clemente for Vice President.
Greens are making a special appeal to Obama and Nader supporters to vote for the ‘Green Imperative’ on November 4.  Ms. McKinney is currently featured in ten online videos in which she details her positions on major issues, including corporate bailouts, foreign policy, health care, the rights of Katrina survivors, and the Green challenge to two-party dominance.  Links to the clips are listed below.
"Millions of Americans who favor the Green Party’s positions on the wars, health care, global warming, and other important issues plan to vote for Barack Obama, who doesn’t share their views.  It’s not enough just to defeat John McCain and the GOP agenda," said Green vice presidential candidate Rosa Clemente.
"Democrats have retreated over and over and voted for Bush-Cheney policies — war funding, the unconstitutional US Patriotic Act, telecomm immunity, corporate handouts and taxbreaks, the death penalty, record incarceration rates, and a $700 billion Wall Street bailout that doesn’t help working Americans.  The only way to reverse the dangerous direction of US politics is to build a real opposition party.  Voting for Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente will strengthen a party that’s dedicated to ecological, antiwar, and truly democratic values and doesn’t take money and orders from corporations," Ms. Clemente added.
Greens stressed that votes for the Green presidential candidates, as well as for Green candidates for state and local office, will also help some state Green Parties achieve or keep official party status in their states.  For example, Iowa requires 2% in a presidential race to maintain a party’s ballot line, Arkansas requires 3%, and Minnesota and Rhode Island each require 5%.
Green Party leaders praised Ralph Nader for his strong political positions and have argued for his inclusion in the presidential debates (along with Ms. McKinney and other excluded candidates).  But they said that votes for Mr. Nader would have no effect after Election Day, since he’s running as an independent.  Mr. Nader’s Green run in 2000 helped put the Green Party on the political map, but his independent campaigns in 2004 and 2008 leave no lasting legacy.
"A vote for the McKinney-Clemente ticket is an investment that will continue to pay off as the Green Party grows and challenges bipartisan corporate-money politics in the years to come.  A vote for an independent like Ralph Nader is a valid protest vote, but does nothing to establish a permanent political alternative.  The Nader campaign will be over after Election Day, while the Green Party is a permanent political fixture with the hope of achieving major party status in the coming years," said Sanda Everette, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States.
