Politics is always the art of picking the lesser evil. I'm not crazy about the current Democratic party but the Republican party is a train wreck. At this point voting for a 3rd party candidate is a "none of the above" or a protest vote. I would vote for Ms. Stein if I thought she could win. In the 2000 election Ralph Nader handed the president to George W Bush on a silver platter with truly disasterous results. I love and admire Mr. Nader but in this case he really screwed the pooch. Nader said that Republicans and Democrats are twiddle dee and twiddle dum but in reality they are different. Republicans are a lot worse than Democrats.

I also "tested" as most aligned with Jill Stein, but like Speedy I don't want to throw my one vote away on a candidate who has no chance to win, so I will vote for Obama. I hope one day it will be possible for third (or fourth, or whatever) party candidates to be truly valid contenders, but I fear that day has not come yet.

I wasn't surprised either.

I ended up being most closely aligned to Jill Stein, but only 3 percentage points more than Obama. I am voting for Obama.

Jill Stein is the Green Party candidate and is on the ballot. But I stopped throwing my vote away a few elections ago. I stopped voting the candidate vs the party too and now it's strictly Democratic Party all the way... it's the least I can do to honor our President whom I believe has ALL the American peoples best interest at heart. BTW my results did put Obama way at the top with Jill coming in second. Romney hardly scored emoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

Yes, fun, but confusing. I am totally unfamiliar with Jill Stein, and yet I apparently agree with her.
