    A: Money in politics rigs the system against working class Americans.

    We must fix income inequality and student loan debt.

    College education and healthcare are a right.

    No one should work full-time and fail to make a living wage.

    These endless wars are making us less safe, not more.

    Q: Do you believe Greens have relevance in the USA? Please list why you believe/don't believe a third party possesses relevance in the US electoral system.
    A: This is something I wrote elsewhere, I’ll just copy and paste it here:

    “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum….”

    There are two main things you accomplish by voting third party

    1) record your protest against the current crop of candidates

    2) signal your openness to the rise of a new party.

    But there is also something else that could happen: you could win.

    “We must believe in free will. We have no choice.”

    Trump/Hilary are merely symptoms of the problem. The real problem is that we all buy into the notion that there are only two choices. We are enablers. Our vote is supposed to hold politicians accountable. Yet year after year people vote for the status quo. No little snowflake ever thinks itself responsible for the avalanche.

    Look at the track record that fear based voting has had for the past 16 years; Of voting for the lesser evil instead of the greater good. The establishment wants to keep putting band-aids on. I’m saying we need to cut this leg off or there is no hope of survival.

    Obama has been worse than Bush on an impressive number of important issues. And we know that Hilary Clinton would be even more monstrous still. I’ve got binders full of examples, but here are just a few:

    medical marijuana raids

    deportations

    drone strikes

    prison industrial complex

    whistleblower prosecutions

    massive bailouts for wall street

    expanding wars for oil

    attacks on civil liberties (such as the NDAA)

    Being pro-corporate/bank/establishment in general

    Know what you are voting for, my dear snowflake, not just what you’re voting against.

    “That is not only not right, it is not even wrong”

    Should you vote third party? The only right answer is “if you want.” Anyone who tells you otherwise does not understand or deserve democracy.

    “I’m electable if you vote for me.”

    Don’t get me wrong, IF you’re a rich man who thinks, “screw poor people, women, minorities and anyone who stands in the way of the corporate oligarchy” then it makes perfect sense for you to vote for Trump or Hilary. The problem is that if everyone who does not fit into that description actually voted for what they believed in, then maybe we could make America great again.

    Q: Of the Green Party's ten key values, please list the three you feel are the most important and what relevance they offer to Texas voters.
    A: Social and economic justice are the values that are most important to me. As a recent graduate with over half a million dollars in student loan debt, I feel the pain that the other 40+million Americans are feeling. Having grown up in the Rio Grande Valley, a very economically disadvantaged area, I have seen first hand the injustice of people working two or three jobs and still failing to make a living wage. I believe it will be impossible to get people to care about other monumentally important issues like climate change until they are no longer worried about putting food on the table.

    Q: Of the Green Party's ten key values, please list the three you feel are the most important and what relevance they offer to Texas voters.
    A: Numbers 1, 8, & 10.


    1. Grassroots Democracy
    Every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect his or her life and should not be subject to the will of another. Therefore, we will work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them. We will also work to create new types of political organizations which expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in the decisionmaking process.

    If our nation is to continue offering the world an example of which to aspire, we must be a proctive democracy. The People must be informed and educated about the issues facing our country as well as be provided opportunities and outlets in which to offer solutions or productive conversations in order to address the problems facing our country.

    8. Respect for Diversity
    We believe it is important to value cultural, ethnic, racial, sexual, religious and spiritual diversity, and to promote the development of respectful relationships across these lines. We believe that the many diverse elements of society should be reflected in our organizations and decision-making bodies, and we support the leadership of people who have been traditionally closed out of leadership roles. We acknowledge and encourage respect for other life forms than our own and the preservation of biodiversity.

    it is through the diverse populations that make up our country by which we gain our strengths. I am a firm believer in “E Pluribus Unum” and strongly feel that we need to live up to that motto. It is our differences that make us strong.

    10. Future Focus And Sustainability
    Our actions and policies should be motivated by long-term goals. We seek to protect valuable natural resources, safely disposing of or “unmaking” all waste we create, while developing a sustainable economics that does not depend on continual expansion for survival. We must counterbalance the drive for short-term profits by assuring that economic development, new technologies, and fiscal policies are responsible to future generations who will inherit the results of our actions. Make the quality of life, rather than open-ended economic growth, the focus of future thinking.

    Your description of this value very much covers my position on science-based decisions regarding sustainability and the environment. We cannot keep “blowing up the Gulf of Mexico” in order to feed our energy needs.
