Recommended Posts


Police arrested Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate, Cheri Honkala, after they tried to enter the site of tonight’s presidential debate at the Hofstra University.

“Jill Stein, Cheri Honkala arrested, call tonight's #debate a "mockumentary",” said a tweet posted on her account.

The presidential candidate and her vice-presidential nominee were arrested by local police when they tried to enter the grounds of Hofstra University, in Hempstead, New York, Stein's campaign website says. The women are currently still in police custody.

I'm not a fan of the Green party and their platform but I respect their tactics here looking at the end result of their intentions. The two major parties deliberately shut them and other third party candidates (Independents, Libertarian, Socialism, Peace & Freedom, Constitution, etc.) from debates, preventing the populace from better understanding their choices to keep their odds 50/50. Obviously the exclusion of these candidates means less votes for them but moreover means less choice for the populace, makes the process less democratic, and is an enabler for the type of corruption and incompetence people are apathetically accustomed to, shifting the balance of power away from the voter and to the government.
