McKinney/Clemente on the New York Ballot!

Congratulation and thank you to the Green Party volunteers across New York State that were successful in qualifying Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente for the New York State general election ballot!

This historic ticket is the first all-female presidential ticket (to appear on the ballot in multiple states) in United States history.

During her 12 year tenure in the United States Congress, Cynthia McKinney won recognition as an outspoken leader for human rights, an ardent advocate for peace, and a determined worker for justice. She authored legislation to: eliminate federal subsidies for corporations taking jobs overseas; institute a national livable wage; repeal the Military Tribunals Act; eliminate the use of depleted uranium weapons; impeach Bush, Cheney, and Rice.

Rosa Clemente, is a community organizer, journalist and hip-hop activist. Clemente, who is from the South Bronx, New York, is a strong supporter of Puerto Rican independence and founded La Voz Boriken during her time at Cornell University.

The McKinney/Clemente '08 platform includes:
  • -End the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
  • -Single-Payer Universal Health Care
  • -National Living Wage
  • -Marriage Equality
  • -Sustainable Energy and Transportation
  • -Right of Return for Katrina/Rita Survivors

The Green Party of New York State is proud to have Cynthia McKinney & Rosa Clemente on the ballot as the party's Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates for 2008. McKinney and Clemente have now qualified for Green Party ballot lines in 32 states with the state of Vermont poised to become the next one.

McKinney, a former 6 term Congresswoman from Georgia, left the Democratic Party in March of 2007 over the Democrats’ complicity in perpetuating the illegal war in Iraq and their refusal to call for an independent investigation of the events of Sept 11, 2001. Her running mate, VP candidate Rosa Clemente, is a well known Hip Hop journalist and community organizer. Clemente holds degrees from two New York State universities – Cornell in Ithaca and the State University in Albany. “These two dynamic women are making history by being the first all female presidential ticket in the United States,” said Gloria Mattera, Co-chair, Green Party of New York State.

The McKinney/Clement platform will highlight issues such as single payer health care, immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan, an independent investigation into 9/11 and bold solutions to address the climate crisis that do not compromise the environment and our health through increasing nuclear power and coal production. “In contrast to both the Democratic and Republican candidates, the Green Party candidates are committed to eliminating all additional war funding and are against the use of preemptive military force”, said Evergreen Chou from the Power to the People Campaign in New York.

McKinney and Clemente will address the climate crisis by calling for far-reaching short-term and long-term cuts in greenhouse gas emissions in addition to promoting conservation programs to cut US energy consumption. “Where both Obama and McCain propose widespread conversion to bio fuels that require agricultural land needed for food production, the Green Party Presidential slate will enact a program of widespread economic reorganization that will create millions of new jobs in conservation and conversion to safe, clean energy sources”, said Peter LaVenia, Co-chair, Green Party of New York State. Our candidates oppose nuclear energy, which creates huge amounts of toxic waste and multiple security risks, and off-shore drilling, and favor a ban on new coal fired-power plants and all mountaintop coal removal, added LaVenia.

“The Green Party in New York is preparing to launch a vibrant, statewide campaign for Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente with personal appearances in several cities around New York, said Mattera.

Puerto Ricans, who desire to be free, must always know that the federal government, here in the States has no “subject matter jurisdiction” over the person, case or location and should be challenged to proof it. These are magic words to learn when in Court for desiring freedom.

You won’t be told this in court but: All jury members, judges, attorneys, and employees working in federal court, must reside in federal territory to legally be a federal juror or touch your case or they can be commercially sued, disbarred and financially ruined for violating your constitutional rights etc.

Your god given right to be free is not wanted by the USA, it will oppose your desire for independence and freedom.

The USA has been the biggest alien invaders the world has ever known. In order to win your freedom you must oppose them by knowing that their weakness lies in their violations to the Constitution and to the common law and common law remedies.

The Federal Government owns Puerto Rico, because it is a slave colony—whether you like the idea or not. But the Federal Government takes orders from those who own and run this Country, but are not of this country. The International Bankers, who really own the USA, will let PR be free, only if enough real men of Boricua blood wish to be free.

The answer to your freedom lies in your Constitutional rights --- To win --You must always reserve your constitutional, commercial rights and know what they are.

The majority of Americans have no idea that the USA has killed more Latinos, than Hitler Killed Jews, The USA has supported Traitors, Dictators, Gringitos, Butchers, Sociopaths, and Megalomaniacs who were supported and kept in power by these monsters, sucking up to the Anglo Alien Invaders.

Latin America has had enough of this form of genocide of Latinos. That includes other African, Asian etc. countries that lost millions of innocent people from USA aggression.

I want to vomit every time some ignorant fools says: “If you don’t like it here –go home”.

If the Alien Invaders would get out of each and every Latin Country and stop interfering in our affairs—it would make sense to say such a stupid thing. But unless the Snakes get out of Latin America-we have just as much right to be here!!! So, grin and put up with it—this was once our land.

A Puerto Rican without a desire for independence and/or freedom from alien control has no soul of a man.

The fact that the public does not know that we are NOT free, makes no difference, to the desire to be free. The PR that wants Statehood is a Gringito, who has no soul of a man left in his traitor's heart. Freedom is happening all over the world and yet we allow Gringitos to kill our right to be free.

A Gringito is a non-Anglo thing/person who internally is so inferior, that he desires to be what he can not be—thus Gringito means little gringo.

The Gringito is like an Uncle Tom to blacks or a collaborator and traitor to many others.

We allow the Alien Invaders to kill, harm, abuse, rape, and scam us and yet the Gringito wants to give our Country away.

This abuse must end. No man or woman is a real Man or real woman who is too scared to fight for their souls and be free. If you listen to the Gringito, you will lose your soul.

Thru out eternity Humanity owes its freedom from slavery, ONLY to brave souls who fought for your right to be free.

The fight will NOT succeed if you don't fight the Gringito enemy at home first. He is there next door and claims he is a real man and tries to give you many excuses of why PR can't be a free Country.

The fight for the independence of Puerto Rico is now non-violent and will be won in the hearts of real men around the World.

The Ronbothunter,

A proud freedom loving Puerto Rican.
