CHEMINADE : Vote for a Pantagruel not a Political Panurges *

— Just hours before the Presidential campaigning ended, Jacques
Cheminade put out a forceful call, “Why It Is Necessary To Vote
for Me,”, available both in video and written form.
The first reason is negative: Because he rejects the legacy
of the regime of the party system, the second is because he
foresaw the crisis in 1995 and thus inspires confidence, and
thirdly, because he posed the decisive question in this campaign:
the state must retake control of its debt, i.e., the issuing of
credit and currency, with a national bank and a public investment
counterpole to ECB bailouts and a balanced budget.
He recalls that he was the first to denounce the blackmail
against the French state in the form of the Eurex financial
instruments, and to attack the world of the City of London and
Wall Street. “The storm is approaching; a vote for me means
choosing a Pantagruel over the Panurges in politics.”

Jacques is rallying “A Campaign of  National Resistance” for the June 10 legislative
elections, and the slate of 100 candidates that Solidarité et
Progrès intends to present throughout the country.
Indicative of the reactions to Jacques campaign is the Deputy Mayor of
Vimoutiers, Philippe Touchain, who explains in a blog on
Mediapart why he has decided for Cheminade, as the only candidate
who proposes a solution to the financial crisis (Glass-Steagall,
reining in derivatives markets, ending tax havens, etc.)
Also, journalist Christophe Barbier of RTL, who has
interviewed Cheminade several times, specially posted on his blog
a comment the candidate made on how, in 1969, he had worked as a
trainee at {Le Monde}, and was considering becoming a Latin
American correspondent for the daily. Today, he finds the policy
of ostracism totally intolerable at the daily founded by Hubert
Beuve-Méry, a Résistance fighter and anti-fascist, who founded
{Le Monde} in 1944.
