    You know what we need more of? Term limits, and restrictions on the government.

      @charles allan that is step 7.
      1. Win election.
      2. Fighf corrupt GOP trying to steal election.
      3. Repair our constitution in a way that would force the conviction of a treasonous president.
      4. Permanently reduce the power and ‘escapability’ of a sitting president.
      5. Neuter Putin – adopt pro-Russian democracy
      6. Restore a commitment to global democracy
      7. Legislate grey-areas that make ridiculous claims like Citizens United from passing constitutional scutiny.

    • Step 8: crush the military industrial complex.

      Term limits have been important to me. Definitely not more than 4 years. Enough is enough with these same old men.

      @Shirley Fogge Piazza you are promoting a russian talking point.

      If a younger senator was running the talking point would be ‘no one knews this guy’.

      To save our democracy your old guy problem is going to remain an issue in this election cycle.

      You can continue to say this a month after the election or you can work for Putin before the election.

      @Shirley Fogge Piazza how long should lobbyists be allowed to write legislation for congress,?

  3. I hope he gets lots of votes.

  4. Oh, so NOW you cover them less than 30 days before the election? Why haven’t you been fighting for more parties being allowed on the debate floor before? Now that you can use it as a barb at Trump, let’s bring it up. Also it’s so late you realize it won’t make a difference.

  5. This guy’s accent is like an old school hip hop artist.

  6. This election year is so important that we need to reelect the people who failed so badly that a maniac was elected. Rinse and repeat every 4-8 years, while increasing the maniac’s military budget without him even asking and calling him an existential threat. The people will love that.

    This is why we need ranked choice voting!

    • Kenneth Grimes | October 9, 2020 at 3:51 PM | Reply

      this guy can only help trump win

    • @kremove go take your meds

    • @Eric Thomas for what?

    • @Elizabeth Carmichaeli don’t see that being effective at all here in this country for this election. That logic would almost definitely ensure republican victories being that any non republican vote would be split or at the very least diluted because there’s no alternative for Republicans that aren’t ultra conservative or in this case, not for Trump.

    • Ok that’s fine, but not right now. I can’t deal with Trump again. All you need to do is hold Biden’s feet to the fire. And do not let up, but not right now.

  8. This interview was short but well done. I appreciate any time third party candidates are given any airtime on mainstream media, considering the general blackout on them.

    But AFTER the interview was disgusting propaganda. It was slimy, especially waiting until he was off the air. Couldn’t possibly ask him to his face? Because you know he had good answers ready for you that would have destroyed this entire narrative. Jill Stein voters would not have voted for Hillary. Hawkins voters will not vote for Biden. Even in states that have had him removed from the ballot (which seems pretty fascist to deny someone their vote and voice for the candidate that represents them) those voters have not moved to Biden. They either will not vote or will write in a candidate. On top of the fact that the Libertarian candidate got more votes than Stein in 2016 and is never blamed for the loss though Libertarian policies align more closely with the DNC. Or the fact that over 40% of the eligible voters did not vote. But the ONLY person responsible for a candidates loss is themselves. If Biden loses, it is HIS FAULT.

    The DNC does not represent progressive voters. Progressive does not equal Democrat. Your candidate is not entitled to anyone’s vote, regardless of how YOU FEEL that person should have voted. Biden and Trump are equally unacceptable to many people. But unlike the Democrats, we are not simply voting AGAINST things or candidates we dislike – we are voting for an actual platform and policies that represent us and would make life better for every single person as well as the planet. Voting for the DNC or RNC at this point is generally voting against your best interests.

    Every single person has the right to vote for a candidate that represents them, to a voice and a platform that actually represent them.

      @Andy Griffith lmao ….not what research shows!
      In 2016, exit polling showed that only 24% of Stein voters would have voted for Clinton if Stein was not on the ballot … that 24% is not enough for Hillary to win.

      BTW, it is the candidates ONLY JOB to convince voters they are better than the other person/people running. It is not the voters job to fall in line behind a party. @, not demanded or owed.

      Hillary lost cuz she took voters for granted and called them names. Hillary lost cuz she refused to campaign in the Rust Belt. She lost cuz she is a selfish, self-centered, conceited politician that thinks she knows better than everyone else.

      @t — details on 3rd party influence on Hillarys loss in 2016

    • Totally agree. Kept harping on BS Nader and Stein myths. Never mention the Supreme Court or Gary Johnson! Screw MSDNC!!!

    • Tahtahme's Diary | October 9, 2020 at 5:23 PM | Reply

      AGREED! They really went ahead and waited until he was off to blame Green for Dem losses when they fail to also add right wing 3rd Party votes to Republican elections whenever they daydream about counting the Green vote with Blue! If they want our votes, they need to EARN them, not feel entitled to it!

    • Tahtahme's Diary | October 9, 2020 at 5:27 PM | Reply

      @Andy Griffith Absolutely false and undemocratic of you to say. Howie represents DOZENS of real issues that actually impact the American people! I actually made a video detailing his much needed platform points cocreated with his VP Angela Walker if you are interested in knowing what he represents:

    • @Elodie Jegubased on your ignorant comment it is you that needs to think

  9. DeMarco Davidson | October 9, 2020 at 11:21 AM | Reply

    A green party vote does not automatically equal ONE LESS vote for Democrats. There’s a chance of that person NOT voting at all.

    And I find it hilarious how people ALWAYS bring up Jill Stein’s name (1.46M votes) but NEVER mention Gary Johnson (4.49M votes) in 2016. Gary was MORE of a spoiler candidate than Jill AND less qualified!

  10. America is stuck in a fossilised groove, where more is never enough and sustainability a dirty word

    That sounds like a black man in a white man’s body. I think he would body them both

  12. These are the things that our grandchildren are going to ask us questions about. Future historians will find it hard to explain why we were so preoccupied with what bathrooms transgenders needed to use instead of dedicating our time and energy to these topics. Cause these are things that can wreak serious havoc or even outright destroy everything we’ve built up over tens of thousands of years.

  13. Joe you’re assuming that the voters would automatically vote for Democrats. If Democrats lose, it’s the DNCs fault! Give people something to vote for , darn it!

    • @msmightymelle bernie sanders was one of the first anti-establishment candidates that affiliated himself as a democrat later in life. if you want to challenge the establishment, there has to be a broad civic movement. voting third party doesn’t do that

    • msmightymelle | October 9, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      @David smith The DNC only exists to suppress the left. We see what they’re doing to the Green Party. We saw what they did to Bernie. We saw what they did with Morse and how they primaried every member of the squad, including AOC. We know a Biden admin will offer progressives nothing once in office and they continue to make that crystal clear. If youre somehow still hoodwinked into believing we have any other option than 3rd party, then you need an intervention.

    • @msmightymelle and you are so out of touch with reality. the dnc doesn’t suppress the left or the green party. what is suppressing people is our voting system. change the system before you go out and blame the parties for it

    • Little Dikkins | October 9, 2020 at 9:28 PM | Reply

      @msmightymelle It is a vote FOR our Republic and Constitution.

    • Little Dikkins | October 9, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      @msmightymelle you guys are too far out of the mainstream. Like the Militia etc types of the far-right, you live in an echo chamber.

    Howie is too smart for both those clowns

  15. He should have the right to debate both parties climate change is the biggest danger to this planet right now

  16. Democrats diluted the content of his Green Deal, he will dilute some of their votes. That’s fair, eye for eye

  17. I love Howie Hawkins, the main author of the Green New Deal.

  18. He should be allowed to speak and present the policies that would best represent the working class!

  19. Why do you continue blaming the Green Party for “taking away” votes from the Dems? Excuse me? Blame the non voters. People who CHOSE not to vote. Don’t blame people who don’t want the Dems.

  20. This is the only time you’ll see me here. Howie has mad clout. Howie will get MSNBC mad views 💯💯💯
