The rigged system was rigged for a reason. Turn this way, turn that way, feel the squeeze, now pop your vote for global one world government, one world religion, you fat oozing pimples on a cow's behind.
Rigged. Directed.
Baaaaaaaaaa
Moooooooooooo

The only way to save our liberty is to go back to 1776 and Darrell Castle knows exactly how to accomplish this.

"Millions are realizing that if we want to fix the rigged economy, the rigged racial injustice system, the rigged health care system, toxic fossil fuel energy and all the other systems failing us, we must fix the rigged political system, and that will not happen through the rigged Democratic Party."

Jill Stein

Right. You got it, Jill.

What we must do is to defeat the party that has brought us Medicare and Medical. That has just provided health care insurance for over 20 millions of Americans who previously could not get or could not afford health insurance. And is now starting to work on creating a "public option".

We must defeat the party that brought us the Civil Rights Act, voter's rights legislation, and is pressuring the worst police departments to reform.

We've got to defeat the party that passes environmental legislation, supports renewable energy and keeps the EPA working at cleaning up our air, water and land and fighting climate change.

We must defeat this evil party, bring Donald Trump to the White House and strengthen Republican control of Congress. We must replace Scalia with someone equally as bad. And the other two openings in the Supreme Court that are likely in the next four years must be filled with other extreme right wing justices.

You got it, Jill. Only by doing batshit crazy stuff can we fix our problems. You're a genius Jill.

The US Green Party is such a disappointment.

Jill Stein - Ralph Nader without the stock portfolio.

Seriously, if the green party ever hopes to obtain actual political power it needs to focus more on the small elections; city councils, county and state government elections and then Federal positions in congress.
Just putting some token Green Party person on the presidential ballot accomplishes..... what, exactly?

Exactly. I supported the Green Party, voted for Green candidates when it was clear right-wingers had no chance of winning.

Right up the point at which they ran Nader.

I highly admire what the Green Party is doing on the international level, especially when it comes to working on lowering fossil fuel use. But the US version has gone toxic for me.

Well, when Gary Johnson minced words regarding Hillary, HOJ barfed.

Suffice To Say, ain't no way HOJ votes for Gary Johnson now, fucking ingrate playing classic politics for votes when no real differences other than gender exist between Trump and Clinton.

HOJ now thinks Johnson is a sell out, and now Stein gets a deeper look.

Isn't one major difference in the way the campaigns were funded? I seem to remember the comment"Hillary used Wall Street as her own private hedge fund". When googled her contributions, it mentions Saudi Arabia as making significant contributions. Donald Trump supplied a large amount of his own money. Her war chest amount dwarfs his. He's doing more with less.

There was a difference but not as you have apparently been told.

Clinton did accept corporate donations. But not anything from Saudi Arabia. It's illegal to take campaign donations from a foreign company or individual.

Corporations donate to the candidates of both parties. Generally Republicans get far more than Democrats. I've seen 80%/20% splits (that may have been oil industry companies).

Sanders ran his campaign on donations from individuals. I don't think he took any corporate money. But he almost certainly would have had to if he had been elected the Democratic candidate. Running in the general requires vastly more money that running in the primary.

Trump loaned his campaign $50 million. He says that he's forgiven the loan, donated the $50 million to his campaign. However several days after him stating that he forgave the loan he has not filed any papers canceling the loan. I think he has to file before the start of the campaign, otherwise he can take is $50 mil back out of donations.

Trump has a grift going on. He's paid his family members large amounts out of his campaign fund. He paid himself over $400,000 for the use of his Florida mansion for a press conference.

"Trump, hurting for cash after he suddenly stopped self-funding his campaign last month, has mixed his public campaign and his private ventures for nearly the entire 2016 race. He has promoted Trump products at campaign events, publicly litigated a federal civil suit he's facing over Trump University on talk shows, and, this week, will bring the political press to Scotland for a tour of a Trump golf course.

And it shows in his latest campaign finance report, filed Monday: Trump-linked businesses account for 17% of all campaign expenses to date. He's paid almost $11 million to Trump organizations since launching his campaign a year ago.

The setup shows how unusual Trump's campaign is -- presidential candidates generally don't own buildings or resorts in multiple states or companies that could be used as contractors.
He's paid $420,000 to Mar-a-Lago, the private Florida club where Trump has led many an Election Night celebration, and $4.6 million to TAG Air, so he can use his private jets. Even about $5,000 to Eric Trump Winery Manufacturing LLC, the Virginia producer owned by his son."

And Trump isn't doing more with less. He has not built the ground game he needs. He's been very skillful at getting free media attention by saying outrageous things but he's not put together the team he needs for the election.
