This is exactly what I was getting at with the line about people saying
I want to see the Green Party be successful, I really do. But it hasn’t shown itself to be, so I’m not going to vote for it,
to make it successful. These parties literally thrive off of votes and vote shares. If only 100 people vote this year (hypothetical, obviously) and 5 of them vote Green, then in 2020 as 2024 we could see the Green Party start replacing the Democratic Party. And that’s an important step in addressing our problems of corruption, money in politics, and most importantly, our climate crisis.
