Candidate hopes voters ‘go green’

“The Green Party in the United States has taken their progressive stands on racial issues, gender issues, and value issues in support of people of color and in support of women,” McKinney said. “So, it’s a natural outflowing of the Green Party’s stated values that they would eventually have a ticket that was comprised of women of color, people of color. The more women run, the more women will win.

McKinney said her goal is to take at least 5 percent of the vote during the presidential elections in November.

She said her hope is that by taking the largest margin of victory the Green Party has ever taken at the federal level. will begin to add further legitimacy to the party’s goals and values.

Green Party Admits Soldiers Testing Positive to Depleted Uranium

On July 12, 2008, Green Party Presidential candidate, Cynthia McKinney acknowledged depleted Uranium, white phosphorus and cluster bombs in her acceptance speech. She said, "Those that delivered us into this mess can not be trusted to get us out of it."

McKinney addresses on her website that 'reports now surface that our soldiers are returning from Iraq and testing positive for depleted Uranium.' She sponsored legislation to end the use of all depleted Uranium weapons until their health effects are known. McKinney has reintroduced this bill in the 109th Congress.

McKinney made history when she became the first African American woman to represent Georgia in the United States House of Representatives. And as a member of the House Armed Services Committee, the Green Party nominee has passed legislation to extend health benefits for Vietnam War veterans still suffering the health effects from exposure to the defoliant Agent Orange.

Even still, the DU issue fails to be raised by either the Republican or Democratic Party, as well as the Bush Administration or DoD. Meanwhile, soldiers deployed to Iraq / Afghanistan are exposed to the invisible radiological airborne dust, that upon impact of the designated target extends its damage two-fold. The munitions second target, unknowingly, are the soldiers themselves, the after effects penetrating their mucous membranes and lungs. Essentially, those firing the munitions, and those in proximity of the blast are at risk. As a result an undisclosed population of those soldiers returning homebound -- are harboring aggressive cancers.

McKinney Blazes NC Trail With Incendiary Speech

McKinney was eager to discuss electoral politics in general. She pointed to Mexican presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who established a secondary government in Mexico City following his narrow defeat in 2006, as a model action compared to Al Gore’s and John Kerry’s concessions in 2000 and 2004.

She also cited the ascendancy of Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez and other leftist leaders in Latin America as evidence of the “power of the people” being heard at the voting booth.

“What’s the difference between us and that?” she asked. “The blue pill we’ve been asked to swallow.”

She blamed the mainstream media, in part, for distributing the pill, and for allegedly distorting events . . .
