Description

These days, I’m nervous to tell most of my friends that I’m voting Green. I fully understand that people are alarmed at the prospect of a Romney presidency, but I don’t understand how a few thousand Greens in solid red or blue states will be to blame if Romney gets elected. Seems to me the millions of teahadists and miscellaneous greedy Republicans coast to coast who actually vote for Romney will be infinitely more responsible for a Romney presidency than anyone else. Nevertheless, entrenched, fearful Democrats continue to harshly criticize and pressure Greens to vote Lesser of Two Evils. Obama may very well have been an idealistic young politician years ago in Chicago. I’m not saying that he’s fundamentally evil or “bad” in any way. I am saying that both he and Mitt Romney will shoot unlimited drones into Pakistani communities and call the bloody bodies of innocent men, women, and children collateral damage. They’ll both send a shit ton of money to Israel, and neither one will do a damn thing to get corporate money out of elections or to stop lobbyists from writing legislation. Certainly Romney is a threat to women on many levels, and Obama gave sensible, sensitive answers in the debates – but from where I sit, the only thing that will change if Romney is elected is the rate of decline in this country. Right now, it’s like we’re being pecked to death by a chicken. If Romney wins, it will be more like a runaway mine car descending into a pit. Either way sucks, though – and even after the hurricane, Climate Change is not a serious issue to the Uniparty. The Uniparty gets too much cash from the Fossil Fuel Industry.
