End Prohibition Now: Jill Stein & Willie Nelson want a Peaceful Solution — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
(You can click on the above link to play all consecutively.)
Willie Nelson’s daughter had a dream. In that dream was a song, A Peaceful Solution. Willie Nelson added to the song and published it, for the world to use and enjoy, and for anyone to record. My partner Rachel of YouTube channel medicinesocks wrote lyrics and performed it. Willie Nelson’s YouTube channel hosted Rachel’s version of the song on their page. Our friend Concha in Spain made a video of it. If you click on the link above, the automated playlist proceeds like this: (1) Rachel plays the intro on Guitar; (2) Concha’s video of the full song displays the words in English and Spanish below the picture; (3) Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein speaks out on Legalizing Marijuana at the Boston Freedom Rally, during her 2010 run for Massachusetts Governor; (4) Rachel plays the song live: All of that lasts eight-and-a-half minutes; then (5) Amy Goodman on Friday’s Democracy Now! interviews Green Party Presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, MD, and (6) her just-named running mate Cheri Honkala; and (7) the psychedelic aud-vid mash-up version from our friend Stephen Adamo on his YouTube channel DEATHINKING.

Beside Democracy Now!, and before it, Jill was also interviewed by CBS News and the New York Times, links included. She’s at the Green Convention in Baltimore right now, where she has named homelessness/foreclosure activist Cheri Honkala her Vice Presidential choice. All of those out here at FireDogLake.com and on Facebook who helped Jill Stein get matching funds in the past few weeks deserve thanks, and congratulations: Jill Stein just became the first Green Presidential candidate ever to earn matching funds (paid by the Fair Elections Fund when we check on our Income Tax forms that we want publicly financed Presidential Elections, but that it won’t increase our tax amount). http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/13/us/politics/jill-stein-green-party-candidate-and-the-chances-of-making-a-difference.html?pagewanted=all & http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57469720-503544/running-mate-revealed-green-party-running-mate-that-is/
To do that, she had to gather more than $5,000 in donations from at least 20 states. She did so in 22 states, with lots of exposure here at FireDogLake, and an enormous amount of help and Green Energy from the Medical Marijuana advocates and activists in Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Maine, and elsewhere, and from Marijuana Legalization activists in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Washington, DC, and elsewhere.
More than a year ago, Willie Nelson started the Tea Pot Party and Roseanne Barr started the Green Tea Party. Around the same time, Ralph Nader started the Coffee Party and I started the Sticky Greens. Roseanne Barr then ran for the Green Party nomination for President. Willie said about the Tea Pot Party “We lean a little to the Left.” Willie Nelson said he endorsed Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson, former Republican Governor of New Mexico, who also favors Legalization. Willie Nelson recently said that he would be Roseanne Barr’s running mate, if she gets the nomination. Roseanne is at the convention now. Tea Pot Parties are very active nationwide at trying to Legalize.
