For This Republican, Never Trump Means “I’m With Her”

Gosh do none of you realize your vote only matters in a swing state?

Not to mention the #neverhillary and #nevertrump camps are 60% of this country. SIXTY PERCENT.

You’re smart. Use your brain. Be the change you wish to see. Vote FOR with conviction, not AGAINST out of fear.

As true progressives sit in wait for anything else Assange has up his sleeve to (hopefully) aid in the political destruction of the DNC queen and beneficiary of collusion, I urge you to not allow either side to exploit your fear any one candidate.

There is a widespread misconception about how our electoral system works. But the sad truth is that YOUR VOTE ONLY MATTERS IN A SWING STATE. So, if you live in one of the 39 states that is solidly blue or solidly red, please don’t waste it in a heap of votes for what’s already an inevitability.

There are solidly important causes that could be propelled forward with your vote instead. If you follow the crowd, those causes won’t have a chance.

For instance:

- With just 5% (FIVE PERCENT) of the vote for any single third party, we break this two-party system of perpetuated abuse by winning that party equal ballot access and federal funding in the next election cycle.

- With any single third party candidate polling at 15%, we can get them far more widely covered in the media and invited to participate in mainstream debates.

THAT. IS. HUGE. For our democracy.

So, I implore you to consider researching, openly supporting, and perhaps casting your votes for Jill Stein (Green) and Gary Johnson (Libertarian) for this reason.

Be done with this “America, pick your poison” corner we are backed into every four years. Work for a process that doesn’t stick us with two fear-mongering, widely despised, pro-war candidates.

Learn the system, understand the actual weight of your vote, and fight for a positive change that you can actually help make happen.

If ever there was a time for a third party to emerge as a viable contender, that time is now.
