hello thom and others,
I have a basic question. I've heard Thom say it might be a good idea to vote for the green party in local elections and the dems in the national elections. but how local? For example, i live in california, and Laura Wells is running. She is running for governor for california.
here is her link so you know who im talking about:
this is in no way an endorsement or advertisement of her on my part. it is a question. you see, to be honest, a huge amount of the democrats have annoyed me as well because they are really not democrats anymore, they are corporate bought republidems.
so, my question is, what do people think of the green party as opposed to the democratic party? If we should make our mission to build the democratic party, why do the dems deserve that? maybe we should abandon them and rebuild elsewhere, like the green party. or?
by the way, i do not belong to the green party, nor have i ever voted for anyone in the green party. ive always voted dem. but, wow, im depressed about the way things are in this country, and i would probably be forced to vote dem in national elections, but what about gubernatorial elections? any thoughts?
