Biden, Trump or another Kennedy? There ARE other contenders but, no one gives them air-time. Jill Stein for example.

I’m worried Jill would just be another totalitarian of a different flavor. I’d rather we not have a president I guess. I choose none of the above

Expand full comment

Why not Jill? Be specific please.

Expand full comment

But in that case you would have a totalitarian whose baseline position is that genocide is bad. Then at least you may have a chance of negotiating on everything else that you want from a president.

I heard she may get on the ballot on 40+ states.

If social media can show everyone what is really happening to Palestinians, protestors, etc. can't those same channels also promote not voting for "the lesser of two evils"?

And yes, I have an inherent dislike of 'positions' like "President", "King", "Authority-figure-of-your-choice".

We're working to get Dr. Stein on all 50 states. New York is the current battleground but we're optimistic in spite of the changes Cuomo made in how many signatures and how little time they have to be collected in. Once NY is done, the remaining handful will be a breeze!

I’m afraid they are all a scam. I liked everything RFK was saying until he shit the bed on unconditionally supporting Israel. Now I can’t vote for him. If he simply said I support Israel, but, no it’s not unconditional and I would treat all our allies equally and fairly, I would’ve been a major supporter. For Jill, she continues a shallow and thoughtless approach to improving the health and wellbeing of citizens and our planet and I can’t support this version of fascism. She’s either falling for the grift or she’s part of it.

Jill would be teed up for impeachment by the Uniparty before she even took office, and would be gone within a month or two. Ditto Cornel West. The idea that she could accomplish anything in this system during any brief period in office- much less bring a totalitarian regime into office with her- is really silly.

Expand full comment

She’d get her way on all her agenda items that grow fed government power, including where she supports centralized medical systems run indirectly by guess who…. National healthcare sounds great until you realize the authorities are more corrupt than if we left it Balkanized and profit motivated. For environment, suddenly we’ll have ozone action days where we’ll be locked down for months or arrested for breathing or farting. No thanks Jill. As they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Find me the most disruptive candidate to imperialism and I’ll vote for it. If I didn’t believe Trump was a psyop, I’d vote for him in spite of my disgust for him as a human.

Tbh, Stein could never get enough votes to get elected, only the two big parties have the means to do that.

And if somehow she ended up in the White House, she would be very limited in what she could achieve. Her executive would depend on what legislation she got from Congress.

If the Greens wanted to be a real party, they'd need to adopt a bottom up approach. Win municipal offices, prove that you can do them well, move up the ladder, state level, federal level.

The Greens right now are pretty much just a presidential candidate funded by Putin.

The real work in my mind starts right AFTER the November election, when the groundwork will be laid for the 2026 election.

No evidence she's funded by Putin. So who will you vote for?

I'm not eligible to vote. But at this point the has only one chance and that is to vote for Democrats. Otherwise it'll be Trump's Project 2025.

It's a uniquely ungodly choice. If everyone who hates what's going on voted for Stein she might have a chance. She would be better than the other goons/fiends without even trying.

If you read it you'd know she was promoting diplomacy and not being funded by Putin. I have struggled with this issue, but I can no more vote for Biden than I would Hitler, Pol Pot or any other mass murderer. He and his cabinet should be hanged.

I wonder if we do have souls? What is any of this about? But aside from this unanswered (desperate?) question - whether or not there is a "soul", or if humans are just biological automatons, it seems straightforward if you don't condemn genocide as an obvious evil, then what moral compass is there? The world becomes a lawless place ruled by power hungry psychopaths.

Book of the Revelation 13:18 666 - 888 ancientfaith.com Great read. I find humor in these "forsights". Another giggle I enjoy per the Bible prayers Mathew 6:12 "And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors." I interpreted this as forgive my credit card interest debts as I forgive Jamie Dimon- JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Jill Stein- What we see going on in Gaza is a death watch by the hour for two million people. Because there's no water, there's no food, the little trickle that was getting in has basically been shut down by Israel when it took possession of the Rafah gate, to spread epidemics like cholera on the malnourished, without food, shelter, bombed, and targeted like fish in a barrel, it's just unconscionable, a symbol of where US militarism goes, the tip of the iceberg. https://youtu.be/3tiOp-L-uY4?si=AAuURrYtSuMYVia0

Some illusion. Only those who have a huge need to believe in.......what??? It is so obvious that we don't live in any kind of democracy. Although there is constant babbling about democracy, there is no attempt at all to even make people believe we live in a democracy. Those with the power don't care. They have weapons, prisons, and the "rules based order" for whomever they decide to impose it on. All we can do is try to RESIST.

Hitler was duly elected. Mussolini too. Netanyahu was duly elected. Biden was duly elected in 2020 (as was Trump in 2016). Putin was elected (after eliminatingl his opponents). Trudeau was duly elected 2015, 2019 and 2021.

Somehow, l don't think democracy is working. I'm just learning about Direct Democracy.

"Putin was elected (after eliminatingl his opponents)" - facts, please. Not from Wikipedia and navalnites.

Putin enjoys widespread support in Russia, because he works in the interest of Russia. and no he did not eliminate his opponents.

Maybe Navalney wasn't pushed out of a highrise window like the others but, he was eliminated by Putin.

Expand full comment

nope, he was an agent of the US and the UK, to instigate regime change, which was why he was in prison in the first place, but he was not eliminated by Putin. He died in prison with a health condition, not beaten to death by Lira, probably due to inadequate medical care which is true of prisoners the world over, but he had little public support. He was a more overtly offensive Guaido, a fake candidate.

I wonder if we could support a candidate the same way the internet mob supported GameStop stock just to burn the Wall Street cheaters shorting the stock. Stock market is rigged just like our ‘democracy’ but what if we could use the power of social media to vote in an unlikely outsider to the power elite. The sole purpose to disrupt imperial power, not to pursue a particular social agenda. No it’s not Trump (not an outsider)

I think the system is completely screwed so it would not really matter who gets in. We need to change the system to one that is governed from the bottom up, one that is transparent, one that prioritizes the environment rather than the economy, one that prioritizes regular people and their needs rather than the military and the billionaires and their needs.

It can’t be post-democracy because we’ve never had democracy. If you look at the English speaking world after Magna Carta, the “democracies” that arose all excluded the poor, working people, landless people, women, non-whites, etc. some of us still have unelected upper houses of government, the wealthy have always owned the governments. In fact, we are still pre-democracy.

Yes Ron Stockton, there never was democracy. Feudalism 'progressed' into capitalism and neoliberal capitalism.

I am a US citizen and I am really struggling about voting for Genocide Joe. When he first announced that he was running in 2016 I was livid because how knew how much of a lapdog he was when it came to Apartheid Israel. I thought "Oh no, if Netanhyhu does something horrible to the Palestinians (again), Biden will just let him." And here we are. The only reason I would vote for him is because according to Mehdi Hasan (Zeteo), Orange Caligula would be much, much worsee regarding the Palestinians. His son-in-law is personal friends with Butcher Bibi. I am really struggling with this.

It’s possible to contain the sociopaths by voting in opposites. The more Federal stalemates, the better for us, perhaps. This is our version of divide and ‘contain’. Then again, it’s more likely Trump is acting on deep states behalf to pretend like he’s different. I’d rather not have a president

It's all true. Effective democracy has never existed. It is only the form of government that allows the small, richest minority to continue to dominate, through the state, the large majority.

Palestine has become a catalyst for worldwide resistance because its history is a microcosm of all the harm done to the world over the last several centuries. The outcome of their struggle will be a strong indicator of the fate of everyone else on the planet.
