Stop casting fear-votes!

Stop casting fear-votes!

This notion that Trump is such a threat to our democracy that we have to "unite behind Hillary Clinton" is a joke! The same goes for the opposite view. The media is apparently very effective at brainwashing people into perpetuating the monopoly that the two party system has over our government. I will not be bullied into voting for someone who is clearly terrible for our country. Shaming people who bother to do the research to find a candidate worthy of their vote is WRONG! Fear-voting is the sad result of this type of behavior. This is why we end up with authoritarian leaders time and time again. And the argument that a vote that isn't for candidate A is a vote for candidate B and vice versa completely ignores the existence of third-parties and is clearly unfounded.

A vote that isn't for either of them is a vote for neither of them!

My vote will not be counted towards their totals. I hope others find the strength to overcome the fear-voting mentality. Only then can we have a government that answers to its people instead of the other way around.

I voted for Nader in 2000 but I now consider myself to have been a fool for doing so. Donald Trump is a full-out white supremacist fascist, and if elected - a real possibility - might kill journalists, imprison dissenters, and turn bigoted cops free to kill as many black and brown people as they like, with a fascist attorney general and FBI and a right wing supreme court ready to back them up. Anyone who looks clearly at this should understand it is an absolute moral duty to do everything possible to stop Trump from being elected. Wake up, progressives, and protect the thin slice of democracy that we have from disappearing.

We shouldn't let them get

We shouldn't let them get away with it. We should support Jill Stein and insist that she be allowed into the debates. Give the people a choice and our values will then get a fair hearing.

My vote is for Dr. Jill Stein

My vote is for Dr. Jill Stein. I believe she is the best choice for first woman president and don’t see her republican opponent going very far.

Jill Stein will cancel all student debt. Why? It’s a money maker for the country. Millions free from debt. Thousands starting businesses. Victory for Dr. Jill Stein is possible.

Do you think the US should build foreign bases while bridges and railways languish? Jill Stein will close all 830± overseas military bases. She knows the rest of the world only has 33±.

Do you think medical experience might make a good president in this time of rising medical costs? I do. That’s why I will vote Dr. Jill Stein for president.

Global climate collapse is accelerating. Jill knows the world cooperated to heal the ozone layer and that the same cooperation can reverse climate collapse.

Accentuate the positive. Eliminate the negative. Vote Dr. Jill Stein.

The truth is that the

The truth is that the "democrats" became republicans in 72 with the origins of the DLC take over and the republicans became the representatives of the "know nothing" anti-science fundamentalist wackos egged on cynically by the corporate money machine. And the appeasers hold the day
