Lisa Savage didn’t decide to run for US Senate as an independent Green because it would be easy. She took the independent route because our country desperately needs an alternative to the two establishment parties that are neck-deep in corporate money and influence.
That’s not just our opinion - it’s the majority opinion. For years now, roughly 60% of US voters have agreed that the Republican and Democratic parties do such a poor job representing the people that a third major party is needed.
Here in Maine, the face of the political establishment is Susan Collins, who poses as a moderate but has shown her true colors by enabling right-wing extremists like Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, the DNC establishment is working hard to make sure the winner of the July 14 Democratic primary is a foregone conclusion.
Yet even with so many people fed up with the establishment parties, they’ve kept a tight grip on power by making the rules of the game to shut out competition.
However, the people of Maine struck a blow against two-party tyranny by passing ranked choice voting. For the first time, voters can elect their representatives to Congress not by having to choose “the lesser of two evils,” but by voting for their true values and vision.
That’s historic. You could even say it’s the start of a new American Revolution.
Lisa Savage’s revolution will transform the United States into a country that cares about all people, no exceptions. A society where people, planet, and peace matter more than corporate profits. A nation where children like her students in Solon, Maine never go without food, housing, or healthcare because their families have fallen on hard times while CEOs and billionaires make record profits.
Here’s the thing: we believe that if everyone in Maine gets to hear Lisa’s vision, enough of them will vote for her to send her to the US Senate. But we don’t have millions of dollars in corporate money to flood the airwaves and internet with non-stop ads like the establishment parties do.
That’s where you come in. We need your help to reach voters across Maine so we can turn this election into a revolution.
Thank you for everything you do to help build our movement for the greater good!
