About this project
We would like to author a book entitled, "Jill Stein vs. Barack Obama On The Issues." We are looking to offer non-partisan political books for third-party candidates to complement our existing series on major-party presidential candidates. OnTheIssues.org presents candidates' issue stances, as opposed to lifestyle biographies or reviews of campaign horseraces. We have self-published four books from major party candidates (such as "Ron Paul vs. Barack Obama On The Issues", available on Amazon). We would like to produce and publish "Jill Stein vs. Barack Obama On The Issues", for the Green Party nominee. We currently cover Dr. Stein on our website, and we are looking for commitments to 500 book sales to justify the research and production costs. Upon production of "Stein vs. Obama," it will become an Amazon offering alongside our major-party candidate offerings.
Four chapters: Domestic issues; Economic issues; Social issues; International issues. Each chapter will have a dozen quotations from Stein on topics that Obama has also spoken about. Each quotation is summarized for quick reference and analyzed when they use insider jargon.
Our format for the Jill Stein book will match the format for the previous six major-party books; see as an example http://www.ontheissues.org/OTI_Paul_Obama.htm
It's easy to SAY that Jill Stein substantially differs from Barack Obama's policy stances -- but you can use this book as a reference to PROVE it. Keep it on your coffeetable so when your visitors say, "Why should we vote for the Green nominee? Will she really make a difference on American adventurism?" you can flip to the page entitled "American Adventurism" and directly compare Stein's anti-adventurism stance with Obama's not-so-anti-adventurism stance. And the same for dozens of other issues!
Yes, in the following ways:
1) http://OnTheIssues.org gives equal coverage to the Green nominee in comparison to the Democratic and Republican nominees (and other third party nominees). Try finding that on CNN or Fox News!
2) http://OnTheIssues.org got 20 million viewers in the 2008 election cycle. We expect more for the 2012 election cycle. Our average viewer reads 8 pages per visit (much higher than the industry average). That means millions of people will be exposed to Jill Stein's views.
3) This book will help viewers find our website on google because our Jill Stein page will be better indexed due to the more substantive content this book will provide. More content means more google, which means more people exposed to the Green nominee.
4) This book will get onto Amazon, which currently has zero books about Jill Stein. Our publishing method guarantees Amazon access -- such as for this book: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1468036459/issues2000org/
