Con­sider the Green Party

On Nov. 8, many of us will cast our votes for the in­di­vid­ual who may be­come our next pres­i­dent. Some will cast their vote out of fear and some will cast their vote for the lesser of two evils sim­ply be­cause that is what they have al­ways done. Be­fore you vote on Nov. 8, take a good look at the Green Party can­di­date Jill Stein and con­sider cast­ing your vote for her. The Green Party rep­re­sents the di­rec­tion this coun­try needs to go in and their ideas are sim­i­lar in many ways to those of Bernie San­ders.

Now, I know you are say­ing that the Green Party can­not win and that may be the case this time. How­ever, if enough votes are cast for the Green Party pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, it will im­pact our choices sig­nif­i­cantly come the next pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. If Stein gets just 5 per­cent of the na­tional vote, the Green Party will qual­ify as an of­fi­cial na­tional party and re­ceive a sub­stan­tial in­crease in fed­eral fund­ing along with bal­lot ac­cess in many states that au­to­mat­i­cally grant bal­lot sta­tus for pres­i­den­tial party can­di­dates re­ceiv­ing 1 to 5 per­cent of that state’s vote. Cur­rently the Green Party is on the bal­lot in 45 states with Mary­land be­ing one of them. They are el­i­gi­ble for write-in votes in three other states.

The Green Party has two can­di­dates on the bal­lot in Mary­land. One is pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Stein and the other is Mar­garet Flow­ers, who is a can­di­date for U.S. Se­nate. Re­search them and de­cide for your­self whether you want to vote for hate or cor­rup­tion over peace and a promis­ing fu­ture. The Green Party truly is the only party that is not cor­rupted by money and cor­po­rate greed. They are a grass­roots party of ac­tivists that have been fight­ing be­hind the scenes for you and your fam­ily for years.

Why not take this op­por­tu­nity to thank them by vot­ing for them on Nov. 8?
