I have found elected officials in all parties that I consider capable, reasonable, and humane.
Brendon Carpenter

No, I’m not upset, Brendon. In fact, I admire you for your activism and your commitment to improving our government. But I think activists have no business running for office, especially the top job. If the Green Party wants to be politicians, then let them build up a party from the ground up. I’ll happily support them. But once they get their hands dirty in the sausage-making business of politics, once they have a record of public service to pick apart, I bet they’ll find themselves indistinguishable from the Democratic Party.
