Well at least the old fool isn't voting for Trump. That's probably the only reason why I tolerate him. But seriously, voting for Jill Stein is something only a mental defective would do.
It's a waste of time, a waste of a vote, and a pointless and blitheringly middle-class Caucasian thing to do.
What's the point of having a voice if every rational person who hears it thinks that you're finally beyond reason?
Voting for Jill Stein is the political equivalent of becoming a Scientologist or joining Heaven's Gate.
You do know that her running mate was only chosen because a radical black intellectual makes stupid white 'progressives' feel warm and happy, don't you? He gives them that delicious moist feeling of being revolutionary and impactfull. He's spent his entire life catering to their white guilt. Highlights of his career include being an apologist and admirer of nearly every despotism on the planet, from the old Soviet Union to modern-day North Korea, Syria, and Cuba, while supporting a host of crackpot conspiracy theories.
"The Sanders’ campaign, like the Obama phenomenon before it, does not offer a program or strategic direction for addressing the current crisis and contradictions of Western capitalist societies."
---Ajamu Baraka; vice presidential candidate of the Green Party, in CounterPunch, September 16, 2015.
"My dialectic method is not only different from the Hegelian, but is its direct opposite. To Hegel, the life-process of the human brain, i.e. the process of thinking, which, under the name of 'the Idea', he even transforms into an independent subject, is the demiurgos of the real world, and the real world is only the external, phenomenal form of 'the Idea'. With me, on the contrary, the ideal is nothing else than the material world reflected by the human mind, and translated into forms of thought."
--Karl Marx; someone responsible for a huge amount of hot air.
To nimrods such as Ajamu Baraka, everything should be seen in relation to class struggle, and the overthrow of "a demented and dying U.S. empire" and its "colonial allies".
Voting for the Green Party, with Stein and Baraka at the helm, would be an outrageously immoral and cynical act, besides monumentally destructive, stupid, and self-hating.
