Massachusetts doctor wins Green Party nomination. Voting third party shows that you are participating, but it also shows that you refuse to buy into the corrupt system that the republicans and democrats have gamed. And yes, the leadership of both parties is responsible for the clusterfuck that is our current state of affairs--after all. it's Obama's AG who is sitting on his hands, letting the bankers rape the treasury at will. So, what does the Green Party nominee have to say? Just this:
Jill Stein, an internist from Lexington, Mass., blasted both Romney and President Barack Obama, saying both had become too dependent on donations from corporations in order to acquire office at the expense of the nation's citizens.
"We need real public servants who listen to the people — not to the corporate lobbyists that funnel campaign checks into the big war chests," Stein told applauding supporters at a Holiday Inn in Baltimore. "That's what brought me to the Green Party, the only national party that is not bought and paid for by corporate money."
We will know when third parties are seen as a real threat when the Koch brothers try to acquire them. But probably not this year. Vote Green Party, vote some other party, just starve the fucking monsters.
