Two articles listing alternative parties

The same author, Richard Wall, got this article published in two different publications. He changed the intro a lot, and the content a little. I will link to both. I liked the intro to one better, and the title to the other one.

from The North Coast Journal
The other candidates running for president
Second in a six-part series
By Richard Wall

One fundamental fallacy dooms all Alt Prez candidates to failure. Tell someone that you’re voting for a third-party candidate and he or she will whine, “You’re just throwing your vote away.”

No you’re not. You can do whatever you want with your vote. If you’re a liberal, your vote doesn’t automatically belong to the Democrats, no matter what those kleptomaniacs say.

Most voters confuse the election for a football game, and their insistence that you only vote for a potential winner is nonsense. Besides, the chance that your vote will actually make a difference is less than your chance of winning the lottery…

And…Richard Wall’s thoughts about Cynthia McKinney (I don’t agree with his prediction at end. But, I like that the story featured a great photo of former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney)

Race For 3rd Place

The Green Party of The United States picked as its Presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney, the former Georgia Congresswoman who was a Democrat until recently. McKinney did something no Presidential candidate has ever done before, picking hip-hop artist and activist Rosa Clemente as her VP running mate. It makes sense if you consider the slogan on McKinney’s runcynthiarun website: “We have to do things we’ve never done before in order to have things we’ve never had before.”

President McKinney would:

Push for a living wage

Change the Department of State to the Department of Peace

Create a single-payer health-care system

Implement solutions to global warming

Reduce fossil fuel consumption

Generate jobs in alternative energies and conservation

Get the country to apologize for slavery and the genocide of Native Americans.

Priority #1 for the Greens is fostering grassroots democracy, and 200 Greens across the country hold local offices. McKinney hopes to leverage that local strength into snagging 5 percent of the popular vote for President, which could get Greens a seat at the table like their counterparts in other countries enjoy.

Prediction: Looking good locally, the Greens continue to slip on the national stage, with McKinney finishing 6th.
