April 29, 2012 (SOAPBOX #129) - Cindy brings us Dr. Jill Stein, who is currently seeking the Green Party's nomination for President of the United States. She graduated from Harvard Medicine in 1979, taught internal medicine for years and has been a pioneer in environmental health advocacy. You might want to check out her clear and oh-so lucid perspective, which is very well presented on her green web site! Read the articles - they're short, they're illuminating - and they're chock full of surprising information! Especially read those about Dr. Stein's "Green New Deal." Listen in, and hear her tell Cindy that public opinion now seems to be at a breaking point. "As independent political peace/justice advocates, we've been ahead of the curve of the mainstream - but now the mainstream is catching up with us to say "You guys are really right; we really are being shafted by the system!" She sees a tremendous hunger out there for a politics of integrity, a politics that people can trust, a politics that expresses this incredible movement for democracy, justice and peace that is alive and cooking out there at the grassroots but has typically been denied by establishment of politics."
