A Challenge: Find A Presidential Candida

October 27, 2012

A Challenge: Find A Presidential Candidate That Will Stand For These 15 Issues 1. A candidate is interested in stopping the use of the death penalty for federal or state crimes. 2. A candidate is interested in eliminating or reducing the 5,113 US nuclear warheads. 3. A candidate is campaigning to close Guantanamo prison. 4. A candidate has called for arresting and prosecuting high ranking people on Wall Street for the subprime mortgage catastrophe. 5. A candidate is interested in holding anyone in the Bush administration accountable for the torture committed by US personnel against prisoners in Guantanamo or in Iraq or Afghanistan. 6. A candidate is interested in stopping the use of drones to assassinate people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen or Somalia. 7. A candidate is against warrantless surveillance, indefinite detention, or racial profiling in fighting “terrorism.’ 8. A candidate is interested in fighting for a living wage. In fact A are really committed beyond lip service to raising the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour – which, if it kept pace with inflation since the 1960s should be about $10 an hour. 9. A candidate was interested in arresting Osama bin Laden and having him tried in court. 10. A candidate will declare they refuse to bomb Iran. 11. A candidate is refusing to take huge campaign contributions from people and organizations. 12. A candidate proposes any significant specific steps to reverse global warming. 13. A candidate is talking about the over 2 million people in jails and prisons in the US. 14. A candidate proposes to create public jobs so everyone who wants to work can. 15. A candidate opposes the nuclear power industry. In fact both support expansion. Guess what? Neither Romney nor Obama stand for any of these. Looks like, regardless of who gets elected, not much is going to change. Source: AlterNet
