Native American Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier is the Peace and Freedom Party candidate for President of these United Snakes.
Peltier was a leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM). In the mid-1970's, he was framed up for the "murder" of two FBI agents who invaded an ecampment of AIM supporters on the Pine Ridge reservation, where dozens of their comrades had already been killed by supporters of the pro-government Tribal Council working with the FBI. Peltier himself was clearly not involved in killing the two agents. In fact, two other AIM members who were involved were acquitted on grounds of self-defense in an earlier, fairer trial!
A vote for this courageous fighter, who has been in Federal Prison as a result of this FBI frame-up for almost 30 years, is a vote against the AmeriKKKan ruling class and its repressive "justice" system.

P.S. I'm also running for office, though in the KPFA Local Station Board (LSB) election, not in the government's charade. (See http://kpfa.aarons.fastmail.fm.) My chances of getting elected are substantially greater than those of brother Peltier, though still not very great. However, thanks to the super-democratic system of preferential voting in the KPFA election, a vote for a candidate who doesn't win isn't wasted. It just gets transferred to your next choice!
(I urge every listener-subscriber to KPFA to vote in the LSB election. You must have been a subscriber by August 31. You must get your ballot back to the station by November 15. If you haven't received it in the mail by next week you should call the station.)
