Green Party Dr. Jill Stein is back at it again, folks! That’s right, she’s throwing her hat into the ring for the 2024 presidential election. This will be her third go at it, after striking out with her third-party bids back in 2012 and 2016. But hey, third time’s a charm, right?
Stein is making all sorts of big claims about how the political system is “broken” and how we need a party that “serves the people.” She’s hollering about offering a “better choice for the people” and all that jazz. Sounds like she’s trying to make herself out to be some sort of hero riding in on a white horse to save the day.

But hold onto your hats, because Stein’s not alone in this little circus. Left-wing activist and professor Cornel West was trying to snag that Green Party nomination too. However, he’s now decided to go rogue and run for president as an independent. And let’s not forget about environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who was making some noise in the Democratic primary before ditching the party altogether.
Meanwhile, over in the Democrat camp, feisty Rep. Dean Phillips from Minnesota is looking to give ol’ Biden a run for his money in the primary. Geez, it’s like a reality TV show over there with all these dramatic entrances and exits.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier, a recent CNN poll dropped a bombshell, showing former President Donald Trump leading Biden in a hypothetical rematch of the 2020 election. Yup, you read that right. Trump’s still hanging around like a bad smell, and some folks seem to be all for it.
As if things weren’t wild enough, Stein’s out here making some wild promises. She’s talking about abolishing medical and student debt, offering “living-wage jobs for all Americans,” free healthcare, housing, food, and education, and creating a “Green New Deal.” Oh, and she’s also promising to “end endless war and rampant militarism.” That’s quite the wish list there, Jill.
Hey, at least she’s got some ambitious goals, right? But let’s not forget that she only raked in a little over 1.4 million votes in 2016, which was still more than her 2012 effort. Maybe the third time really is the charm for Stein. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s all a load of hooey. Well, buckle up, because it looks like the 2024 presidential race is already shaping up to be a wild ride!
