Very good signs that 2014 and 2016 can be a very big years for the Green Party/Jill Stein and America

I was actually rather disappointed about the results after checking out the individual states results in %. Not even in her state MA did they reach the 5% hurdle and overall it is under 2%. That is much less than I had expected. Or do I get something wrong there?

While it is true that the Greens didn't reach the oft-stated goal of 5%, they did,in fact, have the best showing in over a decade. The Greens were successful in winning a number of local and state elections. All it takes is time and patience. We have to keep on pushing. We have to keep on educating the public that they do have choices; they have an alternative to the corporate two-party do-nothingism.

We have to keep spreading the news that there is a real party of, by, and for the people, the Green Party. The Green Party, unlike the dominant parties, is not for sale to corporate interests. Stay strong: time is on our side.
