Why I can't support Obama

As the Republicans get more right-wing, the Democrats follow them, staying just one step behind. That will continue as long as right-wing Democrats can get elected by saying that the Republicans are worse.

I didn't vote for the Republicans who started these nasty policies and I won't vote for Democrats that support them either. Thus, the only Democrats I will support are those who are strong and principled progressives.

Thus, my vote is for Jill Stein for president. Until someone worthy of FDR's memory is the Democratic candidate for president, I will continue voting Green.
