Jill Stein, Rocky Anderson and Stewart Alexander didn't get as many votes as we hoped they would but they have set something in motion--- political independence from the two parties--- for which all liberals, progressives and leftists should be appreciative.
Never before, since 1948 and the onslaught of McCarthyism have progressive alternatives had their voices heard as in this election. This has been an important victory we can build on--- if we seize the initiative in a united way.
New Progressive Alliance (NPA) should ask Stein, Anderson and Alexander to announce they are coming together to put people to work through pressuring Obama to re-establish the WPA and CCC to assist the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
This could have the potential of forging the kind of people's unity capable of bringing together a grassroots response and alternative to Wall Street's agenda. Finance it all through a special temporary emergency "tax on the rich."
As part of this letter supporting this initiative we could ask the backers of these three parties to sign on to the letter, too. The candidates and their backers working together. A short, concise statement should conclude the appeal explaining why this special temporary tax on the rich is needed because the Democrats and Republicans continue to squander the wealth of our Nation on wars in the same destructive way to our country as Hurricane Sandy.
Press conferences, petitions, letters, demonstrations... kick it off with a letter jointly signed by Rocky Anderson, Jill Stein, Stewart Alexander.and their running mates.
