Voting Conscience vs Ego

To all of you throwing yourselves on the floor like a toddler and kicking and pounding your fists because Bernie didn’t win, this is a democracy, and yes, the Democratic party worked against him, but he was never a Democrat. Why are you surprised? Voting for Trump because you’re mad is stupid and childish and sets us back a long, long way.

For those of you who are singing the praises of Jill Stein or Gary Johnson – look at them. Seriously, look. Johnson wants deregulation and to remove the safety nets. He’s an unserious version of your average greedy republican. Stein is anti-science and anti-vaxx, another joke for a candidate. We have a lot of work to do to get a new system in place so there are more than just two choices, but there’s no point if they aren’t serious choices (like Stein and Johnson, not serious). There is no scenario where Stein or Johnson win or help the cause, the revolution. None. Choosing either of those non-choices isn’t “voting your conscience” as you say; it’s voting your ego. AND it helps Trump get elected.

Now, stop being babies, and let’s get to work fixing this system and getting real options besides the usual two.
