Slay all the Dragons - green and more;

Do something Productive, Constructive, and Instructive.

Instead of Wasting Your very Precious and Important Vote on a third party candidate with no hope of winning - do something productive, constructive, and instructive.

That is to get Seriously Active in promoting Instant Runoff Voting, "ranking all candidates on election ballots, with the goal of eliminating the 'wasted' vote or 'spoiler' candidacy."

For those of you already doing this, thank you; for those of you who just sit at your cozy computer complaining to the vast void that this or that Democratic candidate is too imperfect for you - get up and get organized promoting Instant Runoff Voting!

But Until we change the System of Voting, and together we can change this system, we still must vote for whichever Democratic candidate wins the nomination, otherwise, You Are Voting For The Republican candidate.

Rationalize it to yourself and justify it to yourself, however you want, but the reality is if you do not vote for whichever Democratic candidate wins the nomination,You Are Voting For The Republican candidate. Think maturely about this, the next President may be selecting a Supreme Court Justice, the President certainly selects Judges and other Officials who affect our personal daily lives.

In our current System of Voting there is no such thing as a third party. I end as I began, instead of Wasting Your very Precious and Important Vote on a third party candidate with no hope of winning - do something productive, constructive, and instructive - get Seriously Active in promoting Instant Runoff Voting. Until then, vote for the Democratic candidate over the Republican candidate.
