Jill Stein on Civil Liberty

Last Updated : Jul 12, 2012

Summary

Dr Stein has stated that she would act to repeal the PATRIOT Act and the 2012 NDAA if elected President. In a June 2012 interview, she stated that the Bill of Rights is on life support and that the Fourth Amendment, the right to judicial review, and the right to a trial have been sabotaged by Obama.

This viewpoint is in keeping with the Green Party platform, which calls for the repeal of those laws, a restoration of habeaus corpus, an end for wiretaping, and closing of Guantanamo Bay.
