The theory is if you live in a state that is solidly red or blue and you vote third party, it won't matter. I beg to differ.

Considering how many of US there are who are worried about GMOs, climate change, energy, corporate influence, and the environment in its entirety, voting third party is taking away a vote away from Obama. Those who say that those third party voters would "just not vote" are really very sad indeed because if one chooses not to vote at all if there is not a candidate who agrees with all of your particular views, is not only apathetic, but also selfish.

Just imagine what will happen to this economy, environment, and influence of corporations if Romney is elected. Jill Stein will be a distant memory and a regret of many who threw away their vote to make a point.

Those who say Obama will win regardless of third party votes are only touting a new (third) party line, but also doing what they dislike most about the two major parties. They are being dishonest so as to solicit more votes!

The big difference between the Green Party and the two dominant parties is that the Green Party not only opposes the Keystone XL pipeline, it also hasn't accepted any corporate contributions from Exxon, Shell, or other elements of "Big Oil." The same cannot be said of either the Democrats or the Republicans who have accepted hundreds of millions of dollars from Big Oil and other corporate contributors.

Nothing is so dishonest as those who, lacking faith in their own candidates, have to attack others for being passionate about their chosen candidates. Jill Stein cares about the environment and about stopping the Keystone XL pipeline. The candidates from the dominant parties are both committed to speeding up construction.

If we don't change the political system and eliminate the dominance of the parties of corporate greed, then this pipeline project will be completed and soon we will all be a distant memory...only there will be no one left to remember. There is no bigger fool than someone who maintains the system of toxic free market capitalism and the environmental devastation that it causes.

sometimes u wonder, arent these people supposed to get all the experts on the environment, ecology and scientists to give them the green light and guidelines for business operation and expansion? if not how were they granted the license to operate and develop?
