Jimmy Cooper Of Georgia Runs for President

By Bob Small

Maybe we should call them SPD’s, or Second Party Dems, because they don’t have any realistic chance of reaching the Democratic Party debates.

The Democrats are having debates, aren’t they?

Anyway, there are a lot of SPD’s, and some of them express really innovative and challenging ideas. One such candidate is Jimmy Cooper of Georgia, not related to Tennessee Congressman Jim Cooper, or any other Jim Cooper.

Cooper mentions on his website that he is being treated for a recently diagnosed multiple myeloma. 

He ran as a Green, for the US House representing Georgia’s 8th District in 2018 and 2020, and for the State of Georgia’s 145th District in 2022. He also volunteered in the campaigns of both Bernie Sanders (D) and Jill Stein (Green).

Though the Green Party Presidential Convention isn’t until Aug. 22, 2024, Cornell West seems to be the presumed candidate, and others need not apply.

This situation is similar to that of both the Dems and the GOP, where only one person is being considered for each.

By the way, the Libertarian Party Convention is May 24-26, 2024.

Though Cooper is running as a Democrat this time, his Greenness can be seen by perusing his 20 pages of issues. Among the ones worth mentioning are the following:

  • Abolish the Electoral College
  • Repeal GATT, NAFTA, and Taft-Hartley
  • Initiate A Basic Income (currently a hot topic in the UK and elsewhere)
  • Guarantee 100 percent of the necessary medical care that wounded veterans need to heal
  • Enact House Resolution 568, or the Unhoused Bill of Rights
  • Statehood for D.C.
  • Require that police actually live in the communities in which they serve

His other initiatives are available in the twenty pages of issues listed on his web site.

Lastly, he favors Marianne Williamson for president, but only if he doesn’t win.

    1. Oh, there’s a difference I think.

      Jimmy Cooper actually sounds like a nice guy who simply believes elves build houses and unicorns make our food.

      There are Democrats who believe this too but they are useful idiots. The ones running things know full well their policies will cause homeless and hunger. Once I would have said they just don’t care as long as they were getting rich i.e. https://billlawrenceonline.com/our-wealthy-overlords/

      Now, I think they actually want this.

      And there are Republicans who are in with them on this.

      Think about that Ken Paxton interview with Tucker.


      1. Bill – Cooper may be a nice guy and well intended, but his policies would be no less harmful than those of the Democrats and RINOs who know how destructive their governance is and are doing it on purpose. We are at the end of the line if we want to have the God given freedom our constitutional Republic was designed to protect. We either find a way to reclaim control or we will end up prisoners in “15-minute cities” (the new name for prison ghettos, ala German occupied Europe during WWII), guarded by high tech AI driven electronic surveillance.

  1. FTA “This situation is similar to that of both the Dems and the GOP, where only one person is being considered for each.”

    This is false.

    On the GOP side there are lots of candidates however President Donald J Trump is crushing all the competition. If there is someone who can beat him then they will. Quite unlikely at this point.

    On the other hand RFK Jr and the others are being shut out because their party is overtly corrupt. Will RFK Jr accept a house like Bernie did to go away? Unlikely.

    To say “only one person is considered for each” is not quite accurate.
