Will 43 Million Americans With Student Debt “Flip” The 2016 Election?

By Jerry Alatalo

cubsAlphabet If most Americans by now know the Chicago Cubs broke a seemingly unbreakable 108-year “curse” and won baseball’s World Series, how possible is it that 43 million Americans will learn (before election day, Tuesday November 8) of Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein’s proposal to wipe out student debt?

The Chicago Cubs’ remarkable sports accomplishment and story will no doubt become reported today by every corporate media outlet across America, the Cubs are today the talk around water coolers in every workplace, many of those employees, their family members and friends have student debt – but what percentage know about Dr. Stein (born and raised in Chicago, by the way) and her plan to free them of their education debts?

In contrast to Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson being excluded from the three (3) presidential debates (the “World Series” of politics?) between Clinton and Trump, one wonders how the people of Cleveland and Chicago may have reacted if their professional baseball teams were denied the chance to compete and make it to the World Series.

Only in the imagination – because the American people were denied the chance to learn of Dr. Stein’s student debt proposal by her exclusion from nationally televised debates – can one ponder whether her idea would have risen to the same saturating level as the Chicago Cubs today in the public’s awareness. The Chicago Cubs got their chance and accomplished what is judged by some as a “miracle” of sorts, winning the World Series, and now everyone knows about it.

Perhaps in the next five (5) days the American people will become as aware of Dr. Jill Stein’s idea on cancelling the student debts of those 43 million holding it across the nation, and, like the remarkable story of the 2016 Chicago Cubs baseball team, water cooler talk everywhere will have student debt cancellation as its focus. In the view of Dr. Jill Stein 43 million votes is enough to “flip” the 2016 electoral process, meaning she and Green Party Vice-Presidential running mate Ajamu Baraka would win the election.

If that miraculous “flip” of the 2016 U.S. presidential election were to happen, and if the legendary Chicago Cubs play-by-play radio/TV announcer Harry Caray were still alive, Mr. Caray undoubtedly would deliver his most memorable, famous line – “Holy Cow!!”

For 43 million Americans, cancellation of their student debts could produce the same ecstatic, jubilant effect as individual Chicago Cubs’ players, coaches and loyal, long-suffering fans felt after winning the World Series. In a sense, voting day on November 8 can become perceived by those 43 million Americans as their own personal World Series Game 7. The outcome is in their hands.

Clinton, Trump “Debate” #2: More Syria Lies.

By Jerry Alatalo

Alphabet During their first Dr. Jill Stein-free debate, the topic of Syria was fundamentally non-existent for candidates Clinton and Trump. It’s most likely their 2nd “debate” will have the same results when it comes to the hugely important story of Syria: none. Let’s put it this way… If the positions on the Middle East advocated by Dr. Jill Stein and her vice presidential running mate Ajamu Baraka, known by the term “peace offensive”, receive so much as even a mention tonight – many will experience something amounting to more than simple surprise. Sadly, the millions of American voters tuned in will not remember after tonight any mention by Clinton or Trump of “peace” in Syria, the Middle East, and/or North Africa.

Tonight’s “debate” will not become in any way a platform for discussing possible options toward bringing peace to Syria, and in the process defeat both terrorists and state-sponsorship of terrorism. To sum up, don’t expect Clinton or Trump to bring forth their brilliant proposals for establishing peace on Earth. Neither one of them are interested, so “debate” #2 is going to, once again, blow any opportunity for serious discussion about peaceful resolution of international disputes.

But – then again, why would the managers of a very important debate meant to decide the next Commander-in-Chief of the entire, vast, human and physical resources of the United States military even consider including the issue of peace? Perhaps that question explains the reasons why Green Party candidate for president Jill “Peace Offensive” Stein received, again, zero support from either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton to participate in this debate.

Both Ms. Clinton and Mr. Trump have experienced negative poll movements after their respective personal scandals hit the media recently. The scandals surrounding the devastating multi-year mercenary terrorist wars in Syria are far, far more important to Americans, Syrians, people of the Middle East, and all humanity – but unfortunately won’t become discussed. That’s the real scandal…
