Revolt Against Plutocracy launched the ultimately unsuccessful primary campaign strategy called Bernie or bust in June of 2015. We warned the superdelegates if they nominate Hillary Clinton, the next president would be Donald Trump. Apparently, they would rather have Trump in the White House than Bernie Sanders.
Plutocracy: A country or society governed by the wealthy few. “America, today, is much closer to a plutocracy than a democracy.” Join the revolt against the dangerous plutocrats, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton: pledge to vote Green in 2016.
On Peaceful, Political Revolution: Sanders openly called for one, proving he was the only major party candidate who grasps the peaceful but forceful revolt needed to overthrow oligarchy (plutocracy on steroids). We are not political revolutionaries because of Bernie Sanders; we were #BernieOrBust and are #JillOrBUST because we are political revolutionaries.
Jill or Bust: Please take the two-part pledge to help RAP help Jill Stein become the next president of the United States. #JillNotHill It’s not a petition; it’s a pledge and a movement. The second part means you commit yourself to find just two more angry Sanders supporters to take the pledge as soon as possible.
Mission: Revolt Against Plutocracy has a super PAC we limited donations to $1,000.00 during the primary campaign out of respect for Sanders’ opposition to super PAC, but the gloves come off now. We are now accepting unlimited donations to build an ad campaign for swing states to defeat Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Governor Johnson and elect Dr. Jill Stein as the 45th President.
Strategy: Like Bernie or bust, #JillOrBUST is a demand. The next President of the United States is going to be Dr. Jill Stein or else the nation will end up with Donald Trump. The superdelegates could have united the Democrats against Trump, but they chose not to. That’s their decision, and President Trump will be their fault. They were warned! This strategy can be understood in the same way as Bernie or bust: leverage on voters to chose between revolution (Jill Stein) or else the left will be divided and we’ll end up with fascism (Donald Trump). The Democratic Party superdelegates made this bed; we’re going to end up sleeping in it. #leverage #JillOrBUST #WeAreNotAfraid #GreenIn2016
Bernie or BUST Rally: During our Philly rally on July 26th at the Thomas Paine Plaza in Philadelphia, we made the case Hillary Clinton is more dangerous than Donald Trump. Because the superdelegates choose to lose in November with Secretary Clinton, RAP is carrying the torch of revolution along side of the Green Party candidate, Jill Stein: the last revolutionary left standing. “We have it in our power to begin the world over again.” ~Thomas Paine
Revolt Beyond Bernie: We seek political power for the sane majority, who are opposed to government of, by and for the wealthy. Bernie Sanders was never responsible for what we did, and neither will Jill Stein. RAP is an independent, public interest organization. Citizens Against Plutocracy is our PAC name, and we are still applying leverage: vote for Jill or else we’ll end up with Trump.
A Historic Candidate: Jill Stein is a third party candidate of the Green Party. We cannot support the oligarchic major parties, the Wall Street-backed Clintoncrats or the now proto-fascistic Republicans lead by Donald Trump. The following is a video of a speech then Congressman Sanders gave in 1991 about third party candidates.
Sheepdog for Secretary Clinton? The knock on Senator Sanders from some on the left is that his role was to corral progressives, like a sheep dog, “to herd and be herded like sheep back into the Democratic fold….” That process is now underway, and our position from the beginning has been and remains #SheepNoMore. Therefore, the people’s revolution will deploy the Jill or BUST general election leverage strategy. In other words, #RevolutionOrBust.
Jill Stein has a super PAC: Attempting to secure the White House without a super PAC in the era of peak corruption is akin to stepping into the ring against Mohammed Ali in his prime with one hand tied behind your back. Revolt Against Plutocracy’s CAP PAC is accepting donations to help build a well-funded ad campaign to help the Green Party candidate defeat Hillary Clinton (DINO) and the other two dangerous, climate-accelerating frackers: Donald Trump (R?) or Gov. Johnson (L). All three of those hydrofracking candidates will lead to a world of underwater cities around the planet. Please help RAP help Jill. It’s got to be #JillOrBUST. #WeAreNotAfraid Contribute by clicking here for now.
To the media: Do your damn job. This is a revolution! Cover it as one.
