Liberals, if you think you have to vote for the lesser of two evils, and that there isn’t a presidential candidate who fits your values, think again.
Starting today, and going all weekend long, Jill Stein, the presumptive Green Party presidential nominee, is going to be out on the streets of Chicago, taking part in the anti-NATO protests there that have been organized by Occupy Chicago.
Yesterday afternoon’s protests saw a horde of bicyclists occupy Chicago streets, and a collection of fit young demonstrators perform a die-in on the blacktop, covered in crude oil under a banner reading Planet Before Profit. A presidential candidate who joins in with this movement isn’t just engaging in Barack Obama’s game of sending carefully coded signals at gala fundraisers that he’s secretly sympathetic with liberal concerns.
Jill Stein is out in the open, actively working to promote the liberal vision. Will your vote be with her, or back in the closet with Barack Obama?
