(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In what could be a nightmarish deja vu for the Democrats dooming of President Joe Biden’s reelection hopes, Jill Stein, the socialist third-party presidential candidate whose run allegedly hurt Hillary Clinton’s bid in 2016, is once again seeking the Green Party’s White House nomination.
In the 2016 presidential election, Stein attracted nearly 1.5 million votes or about 1.07% of the popular vote.
In the vital battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, where President Donald Trump scored a narrow victory over Clinton, the then-Green Party candidate demanded recounts.
In another failed presidential run in 2012, Stein attracted 0.36% of the popular vote.
At the end of last week, the 73-year-old physician known for her advocacy on climate change issues publicly declared her intention to pursue the Green Party’s nomination for the US presidency in the 2024 election.
She had previously made it clear that she would aid the presidential campaign of Cornel West, announced in June. However, West later withdrew from the Green Party and decided to run for president as an independent.
Stein made her announcement via social media, where she pledged to disrupt the current two-party political system, tackle the critical issue of climate change, and promote the implementation of a Green New Deal. She plans to officially commence her campaign on November 21.
“The political system is broken, the two parties of war and Wall Street are bought and paid for,” Stein wrote on X.
“The ruling parties that got us into this mess aren’t getting us out. Both parties are squandering trillions on the endless war machine, fueling conflict around the world while tens of millions here at home lack food, housing, and healthcare. We need real choices on the ballot because without freedom of choice in elections, there is no democracy,” she elaborated.
Adopting the campaign slogan “People. Planet. Peace,” the focus of Stein’s 2024 campaign revolves around promoting an Economic Bill of Rights and the Green New Deal, which represent a comprehensive set of proposals with a socialistic approach.
“To reverse surging inequality, we need an Economic Bill of Rights including the right to a living-wage job, housing, food, healthcare, education and more, to guarantee all of us the basic security for a good life. We need a Green New Deal with massive investment in green jobs and technologies to revitalize the American economy, improve our lives, protect our planet and safeguard our children’s future,” Stein said.
