The Green Party of Alaska has drafted Jesse Ventura as our Presidential nominee for The 2020 Election
In his inauguration address John F. Kennedy uttered his famous line “...ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Fifty-nine years later Senator Ed Marky defeated his grandnephew Joe Kennedy in a Massachusetts primary by reversing the phrase "We asked what we could do for our country. We went out, we did it. With all due respect it's time to start asking what your country can do for you." The fact is our government that was created to represent the people is no longer a functioning republic, but rather has devolved into an oligarchy, with our politicians putting themselves up for bid to corporate interests. While families have been struggling in this new depression, the richest people in America have been thriving with their fortunes growing exponentially with billions. President Donald Trump has bungled his response to the Coronavirus pandemic, not only lying about the severity of the situation but also refusing the send free masks to The American People to avoid a panic or rather his reelection chances. The Green Party of Alaska recognizes all this and we know that our system will not be fixed by electing Joe Biden, who is also indentured to special interests. We need to send someone to Washington DC who will fight back against lobbyists and that’s why we’re drafting Jesse Ventura.
