Cynthia McKinney runs for President

with 4 comments

Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has decided to run for president on the Green Party ticket. McKinney says she is on the ballot in four or five states.

McKinney, who served in Congress as a Democrat, quit the party in September.
”Being green, feeling green, but not being a Green. The structure of politics doesn’t fit my values so you have to find where your values do fit,” she says.

  1. I hope the “Joos” do not attempt to derail her campaign. They have a nasty habit of funding her opposition. I pray that Cynthia will emerge victorious and save the World’s image of the United States.

  2. I think she will bring truth and justice to america.

    I think the dems/reps are scared she might through them in jail for warcrimes and crimes against humanity for taking part in bush company illegal wars around the world. Cynthia is a strong honest candidate that I fell could provide the strength and leadership needed to help our country move forward and
    There will be many haters along the way, proving the justince that may soon be on the horizon for some candidates. I know if you helped with war crimes you should go to jail and all the other candidates took part or had their dirty handsin the murder of innocent Iraqi children. We should not look away from history and bury the truth. My friends will support her with [[ALL AVAILABLE RESOURCES]]
    She represents change in america and the world needs her honesty. Thank you Cynthia for standing up for the people and I will stand next to you in your defense.

  4. Open the debates! First one is Friday!

    I’m not a bot, I know you care about the democracy of our government, so we need to get this done. There are 6 Presidential candidates this year all of which are qualified and capable of winning, so why are there only 2 people on the debate! Bigotry, two party bias! Let’s flood the email inbox and the phone lines with: Open the Debates.

    It takes 5 mins. Please help me make a difference . Below is a script but please feel free to appropriately modify it to support your candidate .

    Step one:

    Call Barack Obama at 866-675-2008.
    Hit 6 to speak with a campaign volunteer.
    Once connected, politely deliver the following message:

    Hi, my name is …

    I was wondering if Senator Obama, being a believer in equal opportunity and equal rights, could insist that Cynthia Mckinney and other ballot qualified third party candidates be included in the upcoming Presidential debates?
    After all, Cynthia Mckinney is on 34 state ballots.
    And she’s polling well nationwide. And he could help Senator Obama challenge the corporate Republicans.
    True, Cynthia Mckinney would critique Senator Obama for his corporate ties also. But isn’t that what democracy is about? Could you please leave this message for the campaign manager? Thank you.

    Step two:

    E-mail Janet Brown, the executive director of the Commission on Presidential Debates.

    Here’s a sample e-mail:

    Dear Janet Brown:

    Greetings. You must be busy. Preparing for the first Presidential debate this Friday. So, I won’t take much of your time. Just wanted to let you know that the American people were not born yesterday. We know the deal. Take that little private corporation that you run. Controlled by the two corporate parties. And funded by big business. For the purpose of excluding independent minded candidates. Friday, two Wall Street candidates are scheduled to be in the ring. Barack Obama and John McCain. The one candidate who represents the American people, Main Street, if you will, will be on the outside looking in. So, here’s a simple request. Drop your exclusionary restrictions. And let Cynthia Mckinney into the debates.
    It will be good for your conscience. Good for the American people. (I believe it was The League of Women Voters that called your corporatized debates “campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity, and honest answers to tough questions.”) And good for democracy. Let the American people have a real debate for once. Main Street vs. Wall Street.

    Thank you.

    your name.
