People who believe in economic justice and social progress have to start taking chances and voting for parties that actually stand for the policies and the values that the people really want out of their government. The Green Party had great success this year. While Jill Stein's total votes may seem quite small compared to the corporate-sponsored candidates, her outcome was actually a great success, winning three times as many votes as the green candidate in '08. If enough people who claim to want real change in this country had voted for Dr. Stein, then the Greens would have gotten federal funding for 2016(the dominant parties certainly don't need this money; they get more than enough from their corporate overlords), a seat at the 2016 debates; and everyone so mortified of Romney could still have gotten their favorite corporate centrist, Obama. The Dems always talk left at election time, then once the election is over: their votes are just as corporate driven as their primary opponents. People need more than lip-service to economic and social justice as well as environmental issues...but talk is all they are ever going to get from the dominant parties. It is our government; we can change it if it fails to reflect what we believe is best for us, for our nation, and for this planet. The two party system has enshrined corporate rule; we won't get anywhere if we don't support a progressive third party such as the Greens.
