WHERE THE GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE STANDS
DRUGS & CRIMINAL JUSTICE
Wants to ban GMOs and any pesticides with no proven safety record. Her comments about vaccinations strike some as flakey, but she’s for them, just suspicious of corporate mischief in medicine. She wants to cut military spending and do some space traveling.
Stein is intense about the environment. She is against fracking, called nuclear power plants “weapons of mass destruction” and wants to basically start a national drive to fight climate change.
She wants to eliminate warrantless surveillance and spying and to protect whistleblowers. Stein believes “Edward Snowden should be welcomed home as a hero with a confetti parade.”
She’s for a path to citizenship, so rest assured she’s not going to be deporting 11 million people like certain orange-colored, tiny-handed presidential candidates we could mention.
Stein is pro-choice on abortion and says that she believes a healthcare system that offers birth control regardless of religious views would lead to fewer women needing to have abortion.
Her current platform has all the necessary letters, “protect LGBTQIA+ people from discrimination” but few specifics. To her immense credit, she was for gay marriage more than a decade before Democrats decided it was cool.
She’s against Citizens United and other laws that (over) empower corporate speech. She’s for net neutrality.
