Spoiler Alert: Jill Stein Announces 2024 Presidential Bid

Spoiler Alert: Jill Stein Announces 2024 Presidential Bid

November 9, 2023

In a video posted on Thursday to social media, potential Democrat spoiler Jill Stein announced that she is running for president again with a platform that includes guaranteeing the “right” to a living-wage job, housing, food, health care, education “and more.”

Stein argued that people are “tired of living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to pay the rent, locked in student debt and medical debt, child poverty doubling, rising diseases of despair, growing hopelessness,” she added, declaring that “the political system is broken” and pointing directly to what she described as the “two wall street parties” which she said are “bought and paid for.”

“Over 60 percent of us now say the bipartisan establishments failed us, and we need a party that serves the people. I’m Jill Stein, and I’m running for president to offer that choice for the people outside of the failed two-party system,” she announced, promising to address “crushing inequality, endless war, and climate collapse.”

“And we’ll put these front and center in the selection and on the ballot across the country. The ruling parties that got us into this mess aren’t getting us out,” she said, explaining that both parties are “squandering trillions on the endless war machine, fueling conflict around the world.”

Democrats, she said, have “betrayed their promises for working people, youth, and the climate again and again, while Republicans don’t even make such promises in the first place,” she said, concluding that both parties are a “danger to our democracy.”

Stein also said they can abolish student and medical debt while creating a Green New Deal to “protect Mother Earth.”

Stein’s campaign website highlights her priorities, which includes “freedom, equality, and justice for all.”

“We must put an end to the shameful legacy of systemic discrimination against women, Black and Brown people, Indigenous people, immigrants, people with disabilities, the LGBTQIA+ community, and other marginalized groups, and come together to ensure our rights, freedoms, and justice for all,” it reads, also calling for peace and global human rights, “real democracy to empower the people,” and an Economic Bill of Rights with would include the “right” to a living-wage job, housing, food, health care, education “and more.”

Stein’s run could serve as a major blow to the Biden campaign, as there are already concerns that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West could suck away voters from the Democrat base.
