Jill Stein... who she?
That's a really, really hard question. On paper, I should be the left of the left--bisexual writer in a mixed-race marriage living in NYC--but I think the left is fundamentally wrong on a lot of things because of a naive or anti-rational perspective. Environmentalism is usually woefully short-sighted (let's ban fracking so that we have to import energy from China where environmental standards are a million times lower). Feminism is antagonistic, self-serving, and self-consciously irrational (all men are potential rapists and how dare you call me a girl but yes please pick up the check). Post-modernism denies the fact that science and the empirical method are what made post-modernism--and all the conveniences that po-mo theorists enjoy on a daily basis--possible. Neo-colonialists forget that India and even China were hellholes before the west got involved and at least started to clean things up. I could go on.
That said, I side with Obama 85% and Jill Stein 79%. Unsurprisingly, I'm in lock step with most NY voters (89%).
He can be VP again... Bring back FDR with Truman on the ticket.
He's Tanned, Rested and Ready ... Nixon 2016.
Yup. FDR. Sure.
Frederick Douglass: Find out just what any people will quietly submit to
and you have found out the exact measure of injustice
and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these
will continue till they are resisted with either
words or blows, or with both.
