‘A Vote for Hillary Clinton Is A Vote For War’: Green Party’s Jill Stein Warns Of Nuclear War In Clinton Presidency


“A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for war,” says Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein.

Stein also noted that under a President Hillary Clinton, the U.S. could “very quickly slide into nuclear war.”

Stein elaborated, telling CSPAN:

“It is now Hillary Clinton that wants to start an air war with Russia over Syria by calling for a no fly zone. We have 2000 nuclear missiles on hairtrigger alert. They are saying we are closer to a nuclear war than we have ever been. Under Hillary Clinton, we could slide into nuclear war very quickly from her declared policy in Syria… On the issue of war and nuclear weapons, it is actually Hillary’s policies which are much scarier than Donald Trump who does not want to go to war with Russia. He wants to seek modes of working together, which is the route that we need to follow not to go into confrontation and nuclear war with Russia.”

“I sure won’t sleep well at night if Donald Trump is elected, but I sure won’t sleep well at night if Hillary Clinton elected,” Stein added. “We have another choice other than these two candidates who are both promoting lethal policies.

Stein and her party have criticized, what Stein has described as, Washington’s “uniparty” that is “hostile” to the goals of liberal progressives.

“Ds & Rs agree on neoliberal agenda: globalization, privatization, deregulation, austerity for the rest of us,” the Green Party recently tweeted. “Hillary has an easier time gaining support from right-wing Republicans like George Bush, Glenn Beck, and Condoleezza Rice than Progressives.”

“Clinton promoted Debbie Wasserman Schultz after she sabotaged Bernie,” Stein added. “She surrounds herself with people who are hostile to progressives.”

Stein likened Washington’s political establishment to a one party state like China or North Korea

“When the establishment tells all but one candidate to drop out they’re saying they’re ok with a one party state. Like China. Or North Korea,” Stein wrote.

Stein also slammed the “near-blackout by corporate media” of her campaign– a campaign, which she says, presents voters with a clear alternative to Washington’s uniparty.

“Despite a near-blackout by corporate media we are reaching millions of Americans who are ready to build a new major party,” Stein wrote.
