Green Party fields five presidential nominees

Truly liberal voters who think outside the two-party box know the name of Dr. Jill Stein, 2012 Green Party nominee.

She's back in the race this time, but, it's important to note, as does one of her challengers, that's she's not been coronated.

In fact, the party has five nominees, including her. I have a bit of knowledge of Kent Mesplay, but know nothing about the other three. I hope to remedy that before this year's state caucus, let alone Green Party national convention, which will be here in Texas this year, in Houston, on Aug. 4-7.

The five candidates are:
Sedinam Kinamo Christin Moyowasifza-Curry ( http://www.facebook.com/skcmcurryforpresident )
Jill Stein ( http://www.jill2016.com )
Darryl Cherney ( http://www.feelthechern.com )
William P. Kreml ( http://www.billkreml.org )
Kent Mesplay ( http://mesplay.org )
For contact information, see the candidates' web sites or the Green Party's Presidential Candidates page (http://www.gp.org/2016_presidential_candidates ). 

One of the five, Jill Stein, the 2012 nominee, who has qualified already for federal campaign funds, was on CNN on Saturday. Here's a transcript.

Oh, and visit the party newsletter. And, if you want to be involved, give some election issues insight here.

Update, Jan. 26: I've seen initial campaign videos, here, of three of the "other" four candidates, all but Moyowasifza-Curry. Of them, Kreml caught my eye intellectually the most, with his constitutional theorizing, but none have caught my eye yet vs. Stein. Moyowasifza-Curry, as a woman and a person of color, interests me in knowing more about her. At the same time, if you're running for president, even with a third party, having nothing more than a Facebook page for your "campaign website" isn't impressing.

This summer, Bernie Sanders will stand before the Democratic Convention and try to tell us that we need to accept Hillary despite the fact she represents so much that is wrong with politics.

We don't.
