My name is Ray McGovern.
I was an Army officer and then a CIA analyst for 27 years. My career began under John Kennedy and ended under George H.W. Bush.
In the 70s I was chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Branch and chaired National Intelligence Estimates. Later I briefed The President’s Daily Brief one-on-one from 1981 to 1985.
This is an election where the American people are sickened by voting for either an insolent billionaire or someone who serves billionaires.
Your vote for the Green Party will shake the political system to its core.
A vote for the Green Party will break the stagnation of the corporatist two-party duopoly.
Our nation and our planet cannot withstand more "Lesser Evils".
Americans are frustrated that there is...
no way to vote against Goldman Sachs,
no way to vote against more war,
no way to vote against more fracking,
no way to vote for more militarized police

Amazing. That one word says it all if you've been to the rallies I've been to, or seen the impressive and diverse list of names who are supporting Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka.
They are amazing in their compassion and amazing in the hope they bring. This is real people power. Jill and Ajamu represent a tremendous joining together of compassionate people under the banner of the Green Party in the race for the White House.Read more
A long and deep legacy of white supremacy has always arrested the development of US democracy. We either hit it head on, or it comes back to haunt us.
