Sinopsis

As a 501c3 non-profit, non-partisan organization, the Free and Equal Election Foundations mission is primarily educational. We work to give all ballot-qualified candidates the opportunity to debate important political issues in public forums. We want to help level the political playing field and to inspire more independents and alternative party candidates to run for office. We want to empower and encourage more people, especially young people, to get involved in the discussion, participate in the political process and hold their government accountable. We believe that more voices, more choices will help shift the political power back to the people, away from the control of a few corporations and political elites, creating a more balanced system where all are free and equal in their ability to participate. The Free & Equal Network is the honest media initiative of Free and Equal Elections. We invite everyone from all political persuasions and all backgrounds, from artists to leaders to conscious business owners.

    Christina Tobin interviews Professor Griff of hip-hop legends Public Enemy before Free & Equal’s Open Colorado Gubernatorial Debate on October 8th, 2014, moderated by Griff. In the interview they discuss why musicians/artists with integrity and insight shouldn’t be shunned from speaking truth to power, how the election system is corrupted by things such as the Electoral College, the illusion of choice between major establishment political parties and candidates, and how music and activism go hand in hand with shifting the consciousness of the masses, especially the youth, to create a better world for the entire human family. Professor Griff is the author of several books, including The Psychological Covert War on Hip-Hop, about how hip-hop was once a vessel for speaking truth to power, but was subsequently and deliberately subverted by corporate America.

The three discussed the humble origins of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and the era of social justice Ben & Jerry grew up with in the ‘60s. They talked about some of the reasons the anti-war movement has died down since then, such as the two-party system co-opting the energy of peace movements, and the dire need to continue to grow the principled peace movement that exists right now—a movement no longer fooled by establishment politics. Ben & Jerry stated that they supported Dennis Kucinich for President, and all three contend that he is a truly honest and principled man who gave voters a real choice to end the wars. Ben & Jerry have routinely lobbied Congress to significantly reduce military spending and plan on continuing to do so. Also discussed were Ben & Jerry’s plans to support the GMO labeling initiativ

    During an interview on December 16, 2013, Christina Tobin talks with New York Times best-selling author, lecturer, spiritualist, activist Marianne Williamson, who has recently announced that she will be running as an Independent, seeking election to the U.S. House of Representatives, California’s Congressional District 33. According to Williamson, “The average citizen is locked out, locked out politically, locked out educationally, and locked out economically…. Looking to the political status quo to fix this situation has become absurd, because they created it, and they depend on it, and they work within it. That’s why I’m running as an Independent candidate.” She notes that the major successful social justice movements came from the people. They didn’t come from a major political party, a “calcified institutional corner that is only looking to protect its own power. That’s not where we are going to find deliverance from the problem… and so I’m running.” Get more information at http://www.marianneforcongres

According to Camp, “We’re in dire times. We’re in the middle of something very serious going on in this world.” Camp describes his various “rants” on the NSA, “the largest surveillance infrastructure created in history,” the NDAA, third party candidates being arrested for trying to attend debates, and how he once got Chris Hedges to smile.

Levitin discusses a new campaign he is working on called Fed Up 100, launching on December 23rd on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Federal Reserve.
