    From the latest Green email,

    we find that despite overall poor performances or outright vote rigging, the Greens did have some major successes.

    You supported us, and we are grateful. Over 1.2 million strong for the Stein/Baraka presidential ticket. And because of you, we won many state victories – not the least of which was the passage of ranked-choice voting in Maine and Benton County, Oregon as well as marijuana legalization in 6 states and calls to abolish corporate constitutional rights in CA and WA.

    You even helped us retain ballot lines for 2018 in: CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, HI, LA, ME, MD, MI, MS, MO, NM, NY, OR, PA, SC, VT, WV, and WI.

    The last is the most important.  This means that in more states Greens can now run mid-term candidates.  Perhaps it is time for Our Revolution to support some of these as well.

    I used to have a photo of Putin giving the finger as a protest to all of the anti-Russian hysterics and fake news non-sense.  Admin said to remove it because they and certain members thought it was a fuck you to the site and the members.  It was not.

    1. Yay for good news!

    I know some of my family voted Green Party in this election (as did I), so we actually helped in Connecticut, New York, and California.

    Thanks for the positive news!

      2. My partner and I voted

      for as many Greens as we could locally.  Hell she is on good terms with her ex husband and convinced him to vote for Stein over Clinton in CA!

    3. Minor nitpick…

    …in NY there is only one metric for ballot line access: 50,000 votes for your governor candidate.

    However, the good news in NY is that Jill received >100,000 votes, so that there are at least 2x the 50k who will vote Green.

      nitpick aside.  :)
