Sorry Jill Stein.

I listened to last night's debate coming in off the road on the radio.

I couldn't believe that I heard Trump say that he would not accept
the results of his impending loss of this lopsided Presidential race,
and that he would "keep (us) in suspense" until after the election
about his plans to continue to divide the country with his nonsense,
his ignorance and stupidity, and his racially charged hateful rhetoric.

So although I got home near midnight, I then watched the debate
and the discussion which followed, and sure enough, he did say it,
and then his dutiful surrogates spun and twisted and lied about it
until I could no longer bear to watch it anymore. It was sickening.

But it did help me finally to make up my mind. I will not be voting for
the candidate of my party, the Green Party, come this November. The
need to totally repudiate Trump and Trumpism so consumes me now
that I will be abandoning Jill Stein and the Greens for that day and that
day only. Instead, I will be joining the sensibly sane tsunami of American
voters who will be sweeping Hillary Clinton into the White House three
Tuesdays from now. Trump is a self promoting megalomaniacal maniac.
He is a pathological liar. He is a preening pervert, a narcissistic nihilist.
He has willfully associated himself with the worst of the worst in the GOP
because frankly, nobody else would have him. Giuliani, Christie, Gingrich . . .
does it get much worse than that? For Trump it does. His campaign is being
managed by the white nationalist alternative right neo-fascist Steve Bannon,
who took the job after his last campaign manager had to step down because
of his questionable (and likely criminal) ties to Vladimir Putin and the Russian
mafia. We have never had a candidate of one of the two major national parties
who was this bad, who was this unqualified. It is our duty as Americans to
realize this, to react to it forcefully, and to totally reject and repudiate Trump
come this November. I fully intend to do my part. I hope everyone else does too.

Trump must be defeated. Totally and utterly defeated. There can be no question.
It cannot even be close. Therefore, I will vote for and heartily endorse Hillary
Clinton to be our next POTUS. She is smart, hard working, and even somewhat
Progressive. I will then work with others to hold her feet to the Progressive fire,
and to try to hold her to her promises and to the platform of the Democratic Party
on which she and Bernie Sanders worked so hard together. Clinton/Kaine 2016.

There . . . I've said it.

I feel better already.

Join the Discussion!

    LOL, And I will step away from my party to vote Green this election to repudiate a primary process I found objectionable. My state is safely blue enough that Hillary will get a clear and convincing win regardless. I am ok with that, even if I am less than thrilled with Clinton.

    My real question is whether to change my registration in the not to distant future.

    And how will voting Green change that primary process?

    I don't think it will, not with 3% at most doing it. I expect my vote to have zero impact in this stateon the national race whether I vote Clinton, or Trump or Stein. That just leaves me to do what I want to do without any external risk or benefit. My only impact is that I vote, as opposed to being counted as not, and what I do down ballot. There is plenty to do there. If you lived in my state, Cdr, I suspect you'd be happy with my voter presence. I will be helping the 'party' cause plenty all over the place.

    Thank you for taking my place in the halls of the righteous, for now I feel doubly blessed.

    I voted absentee already.

    Minnesota has a referendum that needs to be on every state ballot.

    It says that Minnesota legislators may not raise their own salaries without the voters weighing in by referendum first.

    That one is thought to be over 90% yes votes when tallied.

    In Illinois, candidates must file in advance to qualify as write-in candidates.

    Good luck with that.

    The "two parties" of America are really only one.

    Trump's an ass. But the establishment of elephants and donkeys will always give us more of the same...increasing tyranny and militarism.

    Long live Edward Snowden!

    And may the next President of the United States falter and flame out as people power comes to its senses.

    Regime change in Washington!

    Nihilism goes nowhere.
