    Q&A about supporting Jill Stein.

    Q: You must know she can't actually win. What's the point of supporting her/voting for her?

    A: Naturally the goal is to win no matter how lofty that goal is, but there are several other reasons. The strongest reason is to build a viable progressive third party where we can vote our values and not be held hostage by the Democratic Party anymore. If Jill gets just 5% of the vote, the greens qualify for federal funding. 15% would be huge and a third party candidate would be taken seriously by the media and the establishment in the future.

    Q: But haven't people been trying to do that for decades? What makes you think it's feasible now?

    A: the movement we built with Bernie is unprecedented. Dislike for Hillary is unprecedented. More people than ever are organized and fed up with the two party duopoly and having our values sold out by Democrats than ever. We really have a shot at starting something huge.

    Q: What about Nader? Wasn't he a failure who ended up sticking us with W Bush?

    A: The idea that Nader was responsible for Gore's loss in 2000 has been extensively debunked. A quick Google search well clear that up. It was a pernicious myth spread by the Democratic Party to strengthen their monopoly.

    Q: But isn't Jill Stein anti-science?

    A: Absolutely NOT. Jill Stein is a medical doctor with a Harvard degree. She is pro-vaccination and simply believes we should not base scientific conclusions on corporately funded, biased, bogus studies. She's actually more pro-REAL science than many Democrats.

    Q: Isn't a vote for Jill basically a vote for Trump?

    A: A vote for Jill is a vote for common sense progressive policies. A vote for Jill is a vote for a leader with heartfelt values, instead of a corrupt, pandering politician will say anything to extort your vote. A vote for Jill puts us all one step closer to realizing Bernie's vision for this country. A vote for Jill is a revolutionary act. A vote for TRUMP is a vote for Trump.

    Q: Isn't Jill just opportunistically riding on Bernie's coat tails?

    A: The accomplishments our movement has achieved with Bernie Sanders can not be diminished. We are a force to be reckoned with. But Jill has been around for a long time, and ran for president in 2012, long before we knew Bernie would be in the race. If you watch interviews with Jill and the work she has been doing in the background you will find her character is quite admirable. She offered to step aside and give Bernie her spot on the Green ticket repeatedly, and has a recordof standing up boldly for our shared values.

    An unscientific poll online is showing that most Sander's supporters would vote for Jill Stein, who has almost the same platform as Sanders. 22.8% would vote for Clinton.

    It's a difficult decision to make. I've always liked Jill Stein. Until the 2000 election, I've always voted for whichever candidate I really believed in.

    But look what happened in 2000, when Independent Ralph Nader got enough votes that otherwise would have gone to Gore. (I was one of those votes.) Bush was able to become president, based upon the electoral college votes, in spite of Gore winning the popular vote by a narrow margin. Nader took just enough votes away from Gore to ensure Bush's election. Most of Nader's supporters were disillusioned with both the Democratic & Republican parties, felt it made no difference which of them won, and voted according to their deep-down beliefs.

    But then we got the invasion of Iraq, and the Mid-east War. There surely was a difference between Democrats and Republicans.

    We'll just have to wait and see what comes to pass in November. I'd like to vote for Stein, and I wish her well. But if it appears to be a very close election, depending who the eventual candidates are, I may just have to swallow my pride, and reluctantly vote for the lesser of two evils.

    If the hapless Hillary ho wins the nomination, I am severing what remaining ties I have to the Democratic Party and either become a republican or a green or just be a full fledged independent which I consider myself already.

    I changed my affiliation from 'Democrat' to 'Independant' many years ago. Now I can vote for whatever candidate I choose to. I don't see any advantage at all to maintaining a Party affiliation.

    I basically have had my goddamned fill of the Democratic Party with all their backhandedness and corruption. That is the political party that destroyed most older northern US cities with their 50+ year monolithic rule. Detroit's municipal bankruptcy and Flint's public water crisis are all products of long term democratic monolithic rule. Yet everyone is trying to pin the blame on Michigan's current republican governor Rick Snyder who inherited all these serious problems after years of mismanagement and pillaging at both the state and local levels courtesy of the donkey dorks. My home city of Buffalo declined and than stagnated thanks to democratic monolithic rule. Baltimore is struggling mightily under democratic monolithic rule. St Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Toledo, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Rochester, Newark have all been ruined by 50+ years of the horrendously failed urban policies of the donkey dork democrats yet most voters in these above mentioned cities remain blind sycophants to the Democratic Party. Obviously there is a lot of stupid in these older northern cities and sadly it shows no sign of changing for the better.

    Now this is a female candidate that I could easily vote for in November because she is more refined and trustworthy and is not controlled by Wall Street like the hapless Hillary ho.

    Nurses For Bernie: "I am not going to be a Democrat after this - I am not alone - it hurts my heart' - Nurses part of the Democratic Platform Committee talk about the 'dog and pony' show and they were told if they expressed opposition they would be thrown out of hearings. This is a TRAVESTY. A MUST WATCH:

    Yeah, vote for someone who has no chance of winning the presidency, and end up with Trump. Many of Sanders' supporters are young, so be ready for many, many years of hardship under your Republican president. Those of us who know better--the Generation X and baby boomers--have limited time on earth, so we won't suffer as much or as long as you, smart millennials.

    WestCoastJock saidWe had a meeting of our neighborhood Vote for Bernie club last night and we decided that Bernie has become a sell out to the most corrupt person ever to run for president who has taken tens of millions of dollars from Wall Street and special interests. We will all be voting Green party.


    How about the libertarian party? Do any of these groups stand a chance? What candidate who is "IN" now sides
    with a different way of doing business?
