Jill Stein, Green Party candidate for President, gives a pre-election, voter pep talk. There are great quotes in here for people who want to get out the vote, and convince their friends to think out-of-the-box and vote third party or independent! See pull quotes under the video.
Dr. Jill Stein says:
“We can win this election by winning the White House…barring that…We can also win this election by reclaiming our political voice and our political courage and going forward to reclaim our democracy and the peaceful, just, green future, we deserve. It’s within our hands…Get the word out!”
“Don’t let them talk you out of your power. They want you to think that you are powerless, that you have to go to the polls and vote for one of the Wall Street sponsored candidates. But, remember, what that means is not just wasting your vote on more of what’s hurting you, it’s actually using your vote as a weapon against yourself. In fact, you are the most powerful thing out there.”
And, I think it is worth repeating, and putting in your catalog of political mantras…
In fact, you are the most powerful thing out there! – Dr. Jill Stein
