Roseanne Barr/Cindy Sheehan ticket

Postby Shorty » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:50 pm

Don't like the major parties? Roseanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan are running for president/vice-president on the Peace and Feedom ticket. They aren't on the ballot in WI, unfortunately, so you would need to write them in.

Why Vote Peace and Freedom Party
"Sick of Republicans who are clueless? Tired of Democrats selling you out? There is an alternative! That alternative is the Peace and Freedom Party.

We fight for the things all working people need: free education, from pre-school through university; an end to U.S. intervention throughout the world; free health care for all, such as enjoyed by workers in every other industrialized nation in the world; full employment at union wages, with generous paid vacation and other benefits. Workers, both documented and undocumented, have the right to organize, safe working conditions, and paid sick leave. We can pay for these things if the rich are taxed at rates they can well afford.

These are not just planks in our platform, these are issues Peace and Freedom candidates and members work for. The many problems facing the working class concern us because we are a part of that class. We know we can’t get what we need just by voting for it, so we participate in mass organization and direct action as part of the labor, anti-war, civil rights, and other movements, and now the Occupy movement. But we also know we can’t get what we need unless we also vote for it—and that’s why we need an electoral party rooted in and responsible to the movement.

Beyond these specific issues and movements, we understand the underlying reason why we have to keep struggling for the things we need is the ownership of the world and the conditions of our labor by a very few, very wealthy people—capitalism. To win any of these struggles finally and for good, we need to replace capitalism with a working-class democracy in which production is planned to meet human needs—socialism."

Another alternative is the Green party. They are on the ballot in WI, so you won't annoy poll workers with counting write-ins. Also, they have a national organization. Just sayin'.

Yeah, I've been hearing the Romneyists praying hard for that third party and write-in demographic.
