Fusion Green Liberty Party 2016 Presidential Campaign

by End Terror and Drug Rackets Sunday, Jul. 31, 2016 at 1:32 PM

The Green Liberty Party is a fusion party that combines both Green and Libertarian concepts. Primarily the GLP is concerned with ending the rackets called "war on drugs" and "war on terror". GLP candidate Mark Paul Miller will use the Office of President to research, expose and stop these two government rackets that have taken lives and money from U.S. voters. It is possible for a write-in candidate to win the election if they get enough votes



The Green Liberty Party seeks to win the U.S. Presidential election with Mark Paul Miller running as a write in candidate. The current choices between madman Trump and corrupt Hillary are not representative of a democracy. Then there is Dr. Jill Stein and Gary Johnson who are both "too far" left or right respectively for most moderates to support them. Stein is too socialist for most libertarians while Johnson is too libertarian for most socialists. This leads to the problem of centrists feeling obligated to vote for either status quo "mainstream" candidate despite both of them being hopelessly corrupt.

Am using my father's name Paul as there are several other politicians named "Mark Miller" so I don't want to be confused with them. Am also using my father's name because as a veteran he was exposed to Agent Orange against his knowledge and these sort of injustices need to be addressed. His memory is running along with me in this election. Modern veterans returning from Iraq face serious health challenges after dealing with their exposure to depleted uranium. As President I would make sure that ALL veterans had access to medical cannabis despite their states prohibitionist policies. The plant "Cannabis sativa" would be made available to all sick veterans in hospitals free of charge and made legal for all others on the federal level. The GLP would also encourage local universities to further research the study from Spain's Complutense University that discovered THC kills cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. The GLP sees this discovery by Dr. Christina Sanchez and her team as a medical breakthrough and something that should be shared with everyone in the U.S. and beyond.

To be realistic and honest I admit that I've never held office before and have no experience in politics other than historical and current events research. My college training is in science and biology, my jobs were varied. Am well traveled and familiar with many of the local issues people face throughout the U.S., and understand that each region has their own needs and one approach doesn't fit all. I would argue that this lack of political experience also results in a lack of corruption. Basically my "beginners mind" prevents me from being influenced by the "business as usual" corruption that plagues the two mainstream candidates. Though I cannot claim to be "incorruptible", I have my own interest at stake as a citizen and also that of everyone else. By fixing our collective mistakes the U.S. can be free from the rackets discussed below.

The only "promises" that I will make are to end the corrupt rackets of the "war on drugs" and the "war on terror". These are monumental goals yet can be accomplished by someone with no ties to the military weapons contractors or the prison guard unions. Other hopeful goals include "repeal and withdraw from NAFTA" and no more government subsidies to the following; tobacco, corn, wheat, beef, poultry, dairy, soy, pork, sugar, etc... These agribusiness corporations have relied on government subsidies for decades and produced less nutritious products over time. Some like tobacco and sugar were never healthy to begin with, yet are made more dangerous by chemical additives. Local small organic farmers would be encouraged, citizens who want to take up small scale farming will receive government support to help them on their feet. Once they become successful they would only need help in times of drought, though most should be self sustaining and not require any government assistance.

The GLP drug policy would include legalization of safe plants like cannabis for taxation and regulation. The hard drugs such as cocaine, heroin, meth, crack, etc... would be decriminalized though destroyed if found. If a cop were to pull over someone transporting cocaine the people would be released though the cocaine would be seized and destroyed. Those with addiction problems can choose to enter rehab if they wish voluntarily. If they are in a state of ill health to where their life is in danger rehab can be mandatory for mental health "danger to self" reasons. Another option is to legalize coca leaf and opium poppy in it's unrefined plant state and encourage people with addiction problems to use the natural versions instead. The refining process of coca leaf and poppy into cocaine and heroin is what makes them so addictive, so having a natural plant available would deter many from using the harder refined versions.

GLP foreign policy is one of voluntary outreach in the event of natural disasters, not hostile military interventions or meddling in governments. For the last several decades since WW2 the U.S. has played the role of global police force and this cannot continue. The only beneficiaries of the military occupations are military weapons contractors and some corporations like Halliburton. Far from being isolationist, the GLP will encourage the military to help people after natural disasters. Overseas military bases will be shut down and returning soldiers will be trained for defense only. The CIA will no longer meddle in foreign governments by establishing puppet dictators loyal to U.S. corporate interests. We can better ensure peace domestically and abroad by not stepping on the toes of other nations. The war on terror racket will end as ISIS and other terrorist groups are no longer created. The GLP will further investigate how both Al Queda and ISIS were created by U.S. funding them to fight the Soviets and Syria's President Bashar al Assad.

Further details on GLP foreign policy are similar to General Smedley Butler's book "War is a Racket";

"CHAPTER ONE

War Is A Racket

WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one

international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the

losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of

the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit

of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge

fortunes.

In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new

millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That

many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war

millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench?

How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of

them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun

bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were

wounded or killed in battle?"

The GLP campaign is more about what we won't do than what we will do. Using the internet free websites means that we don't rely on campaign contributions from lobbyists. For cynical people who won't vote for Hillary or Trump the GLP is the best option. The GLP is centrist in outlook other than being against corruption, we represent the "militant middle". Just dismantling the war on terror and war on drugs rackets will be accomplishment enough, that doesn't leave room to push either socialist or libertarian policies.

Currently there is no GLP vice president candidate though if possible drafting Bernie Sanders or Jesse Ventura would be first choices. In the unlikely event that I were to win, I will try to dismantle these two rackets. That is my present to the people, including myself. Though I cannot promise much else, better to just accomplish those two outlined goals. Other issues will need to be handled on a local level, the federal government will remain intact for general programs like Social Security, food stamps, regulation, etc...
