commented on A Conversation With a #BernieOrBuster About Dinner
"Nader basically said they might lose one election, but it would start a movement"
Jill Stein was on Democracy Now saying the exact same nonsense. They have no ideas. They couldn't even choose a new candidate this year, and just recycled Stein - one of the most thoroughly unpleasant people in politics.

TheMisanthrope dear, I come from the rust belt as well. The problems there have as much to do with the representatives the "heartland" elects as who the president is. Bernie or Jill could be elected, and they'd still have to contend with the Steve Kings of the world, who would be twice as obstructive and contemptuous of them as they are of Obama, as Sanders and Stein would have no party allies in the Congress to curb their aggression.
If you want to make a difference in the country, you and every other progressive keyboard patriot need to pack it up and go back to the rust belt (and the south) and hit the streets, convincing - not haranguing - people to vote for the kind of representatives you feel we need.
Build a good Congress and you'll get a good President.
