The Change America Needs (Not what's left trickling down after the rich vacuum the trillions up)
Back to GP.org
This week, the Obama Administration rolled out a plan to throw another trillion dollars at banks. That's $1,000,000,000,000, going to companies largely responsible for the current recession.
Government should be holding the financial sector accountable for the damage that's been done to the economy, for the millions of lost jobs in recent months. Government should be directly helping people at risk, many of whom made no substantial mistakes but have lost their jobs or their savings anyway. But government is prioritizing Wall Street over Main Street.
This isn't the change that so many Americans clamored for a few short months ago. This new wrinkle to trickle-down economics isn't going to inspire hope.
The real change is the change offered by the Green Party. The real hope is in the Green Party's genuine vision for a sustainable future.
The Green Party needs your help to make this sustainable future a reality. Unlike the other parties, we don't take contributions from the corporations we're forking billions of dollars over to. In fact, we don't take contributions from any corporations at all. So we are extremely reliant on average Americans, the very people facing uncertain futures right now.
This is why we urge those of you who are able to give to the Green Party of the United States today. We too are facing mounting bills and pressure to stay afloat through the down cycle in the economy. And we understand too that many other groups are facing similar prospects and have similar needs. We can't say that those other groups aren't important. But we can say why the Green Party is, and why the success of the Green Party is so critical as our nation teeters.
The Green Party is still the largest political party in the United States which is dedicated to establishing Single Payer Universal Health Coverage. As more people lose their jobs, the necessity for access to health care becomes increasingly dire, but the Obama Administration keeps signaling new handouts to insurance companies as their preferred option. Green momentum is critical to push Washington toward the solution that people actually want.
The Green Party is still demanding that we get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, slash the Pentagon's budget, and use that money to help the American people. But the Obama Administration hedges on Iraq, and sends more combat troops to Afghanistan, while expanding the war across the Pakistani border. This is costing more American lives and billions of American dollars. Green momentum is essential to confront Obama with the reality that he's not doing what the people want.
Without the Green voice calling out the federal government on economic policy, health care, and foreign policy, the corporate voices ring that much louder. We can't afford for them to pocket any more of our money - and be sure that we'll be paying for all of it.
Please support the Green Party of the United States today. If you haven't given in some time, please consider making today the day you give. If you've given recently, please consider giving more. We need your help to make the Green voice as strong as it can be so we can contest what's happening to our country.
If you can only afford a little each month, you can become a monthly sustainer so your donation can be spread over time.

The Green Party takes no money from real estate companies, investment firms, or insurance companies; In fact, we don't take any corporate money because we think corporate money in politics is wrong. If you agree, please help us today. Your donation to the Green Party will help make sure we have a strong Green party today and into the future.
