Advice for the Very Progressives in Upcoming Election

Publicly disavow the Green Party and its candidate who is unqualified to be mayor of her small town of Lexington, Mass., much less President of the United States and who’s very candidacy makes it more likely that Donald Trump will live in the White House for the next four years.

Urge all Democrats and left leaning independents to support Hillary Clinton, the only viable Presidential candidate who remotely represents their ideological positions, who has the best chance of actualizing their professed goals for a fairer America, and who will almost certainly reset the direction of the Supreme Court for the next 20 years.

By all means continue your REVOLUTION to the extent you are able – if it proves viable over more than one primary campaign, there will be other opportunities. However, in the mean time the future of our country for the next four years hangs in the balance. True progressives will not sacrifice the fates of those defenseless people we are sworn to protect to the leadership of Donald Trump and a Republican Congress. None of us can afford to can be so selfish as to engage in meaningless protest voting when the future of our country is at stake.

When “perfect” is no longer a real possibility and the only real choices are “bad” and “better”, rational people put off the pursuit of perfection for another day and chose the better option, especially if their current pursuit of perfection will prove counter productive to their goals.
