    Re: Jill Stein

    Of course I will. The only way I would cast my vote for her, is if their is some strong movement for her campaign like Nader had in 2000.

    Politics is inherently a popularity contest. You support someone who isn't popular. You shouldn't be surprised that she will never win, she has nothing in her platform that would make people vote for her, even if they knew everything about her. Welcome to reality.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    To be clear, I don't like the GOP at large because they are too accommodating of unconstitutional leftist notions like the welfare state and entitlement programs. The LP is an uncompromising rightist party.

    I do not understand how anyone could waver between a libertarian and the literal opposite of a libertarian, unless they were only voting on superficial matters irrelevant to the issue stances the candidates hold.
    Well here I am, wavering. So get over yourself.

    I agree with you. In 5 of the last 6 presidential election I voted third party. To use the Obama motto from 2008, hope and change. If you want hope and change you will vote for a third party candidate of your choice. If you want business as usual, vote either Republican or Democrat.

    A saying I can't remember who said it goes. In the United States you have only one political party, but it has two wings. A Republican wing and a Democratic wing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Money has so much to do with that popularity. One cannot expect a third party candidate to win when the Republican candidate spends a billion dollars, the Democratic candidate spends a billion dollars and all you have to spend is 3 million, ala Gary Johnson in 2012. When corporations, lobbyist, wall street firms, special interests, big money donors shell out millions, tens of millions of dollars to the two major parties, that just shows you which parties have been bought and paid for.

    But the Republican money comes from contributors, more contributors favor the Republican party than do the Green party or the Libertarian party. The only way to be successful in politics is to attract a lot of people who are willing to give you money. If you cannot, as is true of all third parties, then you don't have enough popularity to win. Make all the excuses you want, this is what it all comes down to.

    That's not quite true.
    Candidates solicit the Big Money from CORPORATE contributors. Campaign donations are I.O.U.s that
    are repaid with gov't contracts, special legislation, or policy committments to make sure there are no
    changes that might reduce CORPORATE profits. CORPORATE issues are always about profit and loss
    and since they don't live and breathe, the conditions that are good for humanity are ignored. CORPORATIONS
    repay their lackeys at regular intervals. the GreenParty does not accept CORPORATE contributions, ergo, they
    work for humans.

    Which doesn't change a thing. Candidates need to get money to run. If they cannot get money, they lose. They need to appeal to someone with money, be it corporate or private donors. Third parties cannot find anyone to give them money. That's why they lose. All the excuses in the world doesn't change that fact.

    I wouldn't vote for her but I get uncomfortable walking in Earthbound Trading Company. I'm more free trade, free enterprise progressive.
