Democracy Now! broke the sound barrier by including candidates Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party and Jill Stein of the Green Party in the presidential debate. Stein and Anderson joined Democracy Now! for a live special just miles away from the Obama-Romney contest at the University of Denver.
Rocky took on the real issues
On the imperial presidency:
"This race is also about whether our nation will continue down the road toward totalitarianism with an imperial presidency that has been made so much worse under both the Bush and the Obama administrations, which have shown utter contempt for the rule of law, due process, and the restrictions under the War Powers Clause of the United State Constitution."
On jobs and trade:
"President Obama would like us to ignore what happened in the past four years. During the last 43 months we have had more than 8% unemployment. It is the only time in this nation’s history that we have had a president that has presided for more than three years of over 8% unemployment."
"We need to renegotiate the outrageous free trade agreements and make sure they are fair trade so that we’re not discriminating against those employers who want to hire United States workers."
“We’re talking here about Obamacare and Romneycare. I would call it Insurance CompanyCare because they’re the ones who wrote it. They joined up with a very conservative foundation years ago to develop this plan, to make the American people buy this perverse product."
"The solution to Medicare is to provide Medicare for everybody. To make it a single payer system."
Rocky is persuasively representing our views on the campaign trail. And he's doing it with dignity. Let's support him and do all we can to bring about real change.
