Stein, the only presidential candidate to visit the University this election cycle, has been involved in green politics for more than fifteen years. She ran for many offices in her home state of Massachusetts, and was the Green Party’s nominee in the 2012 presidential election. She said she believes is that massive changes need to be made to America to make the world a better place.
“We need really deep systemic change.” Stein said. “And a different way forward based on democracy, justice, and human rights, and a different kind of world that puts people, planet and peace over profit, instead of profit over everything else.”

Super Tuesday was a big win for oligarchy, as the Democratic Party establishment delivered over 60% of available delegates for Hillary Clinton and billionaire demagogue Donald Trump stomped to victory in 8 states.
But despite the dominance of Clinton and Trump, the millions of votes for Bernie Sanders show that Americans are hungry for sweeping changes to a broken system that’s throwing workers, students, the middle class and the poor under the bus.
Jill Stein appeared on C-SPAN's flagship program Washington Journal on Saturday morning, discussing her campaign and taking viewer questions for more than 45 minutes.
Jill Stein was interviewed by New England Public Radio in advance of the March 1 Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party presidential primary. During the five-minute interview, which can be heard in full online, Jill said, "Basically, America is in revolt. I think it's really a critical time for us to open up debate not only to a revolutionary campaign, but to a revolutionary party. ... We're not going to fix this in six or eight or nine months. This is going to take a sustained effort."
Former British member of parliament George Galloway interviewed Jill for RT America's Sputnik, and said, "Of all the candidates running for president, the best one isn't Bernie Sanders, it's not even Donald Trump. It's the candidate of the U.S. Green Party. She's a better woman than [Hillary] Clinton; she's a better democrat than Sanders!"

Robert Fantina: The Farce That Jill Stein Could Resolve
Well, it appears that the curtain is about to drop on Act 1 of that quadrennial tragic-comedy, the United States elections. The pundits tell us that billionaire buffoon Donald Trump will be the Republican (Tweedle Dum) standard-bearer, leading the masses to nothing good with his hatred and bigotry. On the Democratic (Tweedle Dee) side, those same self-proclaimed experts tell us that, with her razor thin victories in Iowa and Nevada, the nomination of former First Lady and long-term Israeli puppet Hillary Clinton is all but assured. Her victory in November would mean more war and untold suffering abroad, and more poverty and oppression at home. This upcoming election doesn’t bode well for the republic.
