    1. look at this email I got today (Nov 2)

    Internal polling for Jill must be much better than what they’re telling us, or maybe this is just another attempt to invalidate the progressive vote since ballots will be thrown out in NY state (I think) if a write-in who isn’t running is written in.    …why?  Russia!

     

    This email is from progressivekick.org (“Give conservatives the boot!”)

     

    Dear [my name],

    Hi. I’ll cut right to the chase and say that we think that because you DON’T live in a swing state you should write in Bernie Sanders for President.

    Jill Stein of the Green Party is NOT a progressive option (as one example most people aren’t aware of, she’s more of an apologist for Vladimir Putin’s murderous human rights violations than even Donald Trump).

    Of course we’re all aware that Trump is a stubby-fingered (semi)English-speaking Benito Mussolini who disbelieves in climate change and endorses massive civil rights violations of American citizens. He’s pro-police state and contemptuous of a free press and even blasé about nuclear war, not to mention being a sexual predator. Electing him would plunge our nation and the world into a dark age. So it’s important that Clinton win.

    However, since we really have 51 separate state/Washington DC elections in this country with the Electoral College, as long as you’re not currently registered to vote in one of the swing states listed below, you can safely cast a vote of conscience. Clinton is the kinder, gentler face of the corporate plutocratic status quo in American society. She does not merit a vote of conscience in states where one can afford to vote for someone else. Bernie Sanders, on the other hand – still! – is a wonderful recipient of such a vote.

    States that we think are close enough that it makes sense for people who live there to vote for Clinton, listed alphabetically:
    Alaska

    Arizona

    Colorado

    Florida

    Georgia

    Iowa

    Maine Congressional District 2 (northern Maine, Poliquin’s Congressional District)

    Michigan

    Minnesota

    Nevada

    New Hampshire

    North Carolina

    Ohio

    Pennsylvania

    Texas

    Utah (because of third party)

    Virginia

    Wisconsin

     

    Everywhere else, you can vote for whom you wish, guilt free.

     

    Stay strong!

     

    Joshua Grossman

    President

      2. Holy Shite!

      I got that same f’ing e-mail.

      I did hit unsubscribe, but I responded and told him no one decides for me who to vote for. I also wrote that he can take HRC and go play on the freeway for all I care.

      A totally bogus group imo.
