Note: Cherished friend Paul Murray is South African, and lives in Australia. A keen observer of global events and even American politics, he was deeply affected by an article I shared, about falling in political love with Jill Stein.
So he wrote this:
The best thing to have come out of the Clinton/Trump presidential candidacy endorsements is that sane Americans are indeed starting to cast around for alternatives, knowing full well that there’s a really big rock or a hard place facing them.
And the more one digs into what Jill Stein is about, the more one listens to her and sees her in action, the more one realises there are still politicians with the integrity and intelligence of Bernie Sanders, a parallel which perhaps does Stein a disservice.
She’s a cut above Bernie in my book and she’s a rational, cogent, fearless person who knows how to take care of business. The fact that she’s a woman is just a bonus.
In a just world, this would be the Silver Linings Presidential Candidate.
The voters still have the power. I wonder how far the fear and rot has progressed.
America, you want to see a historic first female president?
Then bin the sociopathic Clinton drone and look no further. Jill Stein is your woman.
Thanks, Celia Ingrid Farber
