  • Why a vote for Jill Stein is not a "wasted" vote

    Voters beware!  Don't let mainstream shills for the Democratic Party masquerading as non-partisan progressive journalists or pundits bully you into believing you can't decide for yourself or that the fallout from your vote will topple our nation.

    First of all, let's get something straight. No vote is a "wasted" vote. Anyone who tells you this does not have respect for you or our democratic system. All Votes Matter. A person who takes time to think about issues or candidates and goes to a polling site to cast their vote is NEVER wasting their time or their political opinion. They are being a responsible citizen participating in the democratic process. They have every right to do so, and to vote for who best represents their beliefs and values.
