It was the 2008 election that convinced me to become a GREEN so I officially registered as one though I had been one in fact for many years. It had nothing to do with Obama or Hillary but their primary battle convinced me that neither one was a Roosevelt progressive. Though both sometimes used progressive slogans, it was clear from the beginning that both accepted the basic conservative trade dogma that created the world crisis we now experience. The answer is quite clear for me. The way I see it, I just refuse to waste my vote casting it for a Democrat instead of voting for what I believe. Why should I reduce my expectations for others. I shall never vote Democrat again.
