Many don’t know that Hillary Clinton is not the first woman to run for president. There have been 5 before her, including Jill Stein who is currently running for president alongside Clinton. Dr. Stein is a member of the Green Party, a small independent political party that focuses on four pillars: peace, ecology, social justice and democracy.

Dr. Stein, a medical doctor, offers new insight and concern about healthcare, higher education, peace and global warming. Though the globe continues to warm, the majority of candidates do not confront this critical issue head on. Listening to Stein give climate issues real credence is refreshing and logical.

Stein does not take any money from Super PACS or other groups. She explains that she is not held “hostage” by big corporate donations. This frees her to focus solely on the issues she genuinely believes in. Watch her hold her own in an aggressive FOX interview:

Harvard educated, it’s no wonder Stein has the stamina and the intellect to debate hyper conservatives. She even managed to find overlaps and agreements with her hostile interviewers. Though Stein represents a small portion of the political pie, she’s worth noticing. She’s a fresh face with a healthy agenda, focused on helping the young generations.

Stein explains:

“My Power to the People Plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.

It offers direct answers to the economic, social, and ecological crises brought on by both corporate political parties. And it empowers the American people to fix our broken political system and make real the promise of democracy.

This plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes, it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”

She’s almost nowhere to be found on mainstream media, but her political agenda is worth noticing. It’s in our hands to learn about our options, even if some are overshadowed by the loud and seemingly powerful.
