Feministe on McKinney

from Feministe

But McCain and Obama aren’t the only candidates running. I’m not going to bother with all of the third-party candidates because there are a lot of them and the majority won’t be of much interest to Feministe readers, but I will point out that Cynthia McKinney is running on the Green Party ticket. She is fully pro-choice; she supports LGBT rights, including adoption; she is pro-affirmative action; she is a supporter of VAWA and other measures combatting gender-based violence; she voted no on making the PATRIOT Act permanent; she supports a Constitutional amendment on gender equality; she is anti-death penalty; she supports legalizing marijuana and ending the war on drugs; she wants to emplement the Kyoto agreements and opposes drilling in ANWAR; she has a 100% energy independence rating; she supports funding on child care, child heath and child housing; she opposes the war in Iraq; she opposes the occupation of Palestine; she wants to repeal NAFTA and CAFTA; she voted to withdraw from the WTO; she called for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney; she supports publicly financed elections; she supports single-payer universal health care and expansions of pre- and post-natal care; she opposed the Mexican border fence; she authored a living wage bill; and she was a proponent of net neutrality.

Listening to Brian Sendrowitz while I edited this.  His first album is one of the most perfect pieces of art I have ever encountered.  It’s like seeing a Van Gogh.
