    That's why she would consider voting for the Green candidate, as would I.

    •  I just can't agree with that (0+ / 0-)

      You may not be happy with what Obama does, but the US isn't a proportional system like Isreal, where even minor fringe parties can win seats in the Knesset if they get a few percentage of the vote.

          What does voting Green accomplish? If you think  "it will show them", it won't. All it will do is embolden the far right. And yes, you may not like what Obama has done (or has failed to do), but that will pale in comparison to what the GOP will do.

          •  I understand that as well. :) (0+ / 0-)

            I've got another 18 months to contemplate this.  I will not vote out of anger, it will be carefully thought out.

            I think there are a handful of people like me who have either decided or are contemplating writing in a candidate, or voting Green, because we simply can't vote in a President who is insistent on destroying the planet we live on. Who continues to cavort with Wall Street and Corp America while the rest of us languish. etc, etc, etc.....

            He's got 18 months to become a Dem, if he refuses to do so, then he will lose a % of his base. With any luck the Dems will lose a larger and larger % of their base in each election, and eventually get the picture that they need to become Dems if they want votes from Dem voters.

            2012 will be interesting.
