You just lost a follower.
Fuck you for calling someone who voted their conscience a “protest vote”. Voting “lesser of two evils” is a true protest vote.
I voted for Jill Stein after Bernie sold out. Because I voted FOR something. You voted against something, nothing more. In other words, you voted for and are now suggesting that other people do the same thing all over again.
Voting third party not only allows me to vote in favor of actual policies I support but helps break the two party system if enough of us vote third party.
One option is a mandate. Two options are an ultimatum. It takes at least three options to be a choice.
The DNC is already rigging the next election and implementing policies which allow them to suppress third parties forever. The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is exactly that.
No, you have not grown up at all. All you have done is give your own ethics over to the corrupt system and become a part of that corruption yourself.
You no longer have the right to call yourself Progressive. You’re just another status quo puppet.
