Yet three years from the next national election, there is already the voicing of liberals (?) that we cannot chance supporting such as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders lest we lose to the likes of Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio or whomever of the evil Republicans.  Therefore we must support a "Lesser Evil" candidate (Hillary?) if we are to win, with apparently "winning" being what democracy, history, the future, humanity, and America  are really all about.
.
This facile proposition demands serious examination and exemplification.  Whatever the crimes of recent American history's "Greater-Evil," we have our "Lesser-Evil" choices to thank for the following:

...The nuclear carnage of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
.
...The Korean War

.
...The Viet Nam War
.
...The Invasion of Cuba
.
...The imposition of the never-ending embargo against Cuba

.
...The nullification of Glass-Steagal and the subsequent rise of the "Banksters" and the rape of our economy
.
...The carry-forward of the Bushco war in Afghanistan, as well as the perpetuation of Guantanemo, despite promises to the contrary
.
...The escalation of drone attacks (Yemen and Pakistan) and resultant slaughter of civilians
.
...The aircraft bombings of North Africa and resultant civilian casualties
.
...The massive electronic spying on Americans by such as the NSA
.
...The use of veto power in the U.N. in support of Zionism (e.g. votes of we 2 vs 190 other nations)
.
...The perpetuation (despite Americans' popular notions to the contrary) of the world's 37th "best" medical system, and a public education system ranking no better
.
Notwithstanding that other intelligent and honest folk will volunteer additions to this list, the main issue here is that it is delusional if not moronic for persons who describe themselves as "progressive" to insist upon copping out to the "Lesser-Evil" candidate for fear of "losing" an election, rather than to support -- whatever the odds -- a candidate they will admit to possessing superior intelligence, moral courage and genuine goodwill.
.
The Evil Empire -- as history is replete with examples -- will come to an end.  By revolution?  By foreign domination?  Or could it be by electoral process?  Should that option have a chance, we must start upon its fertilization now rather than to persist in the continued downward persuasion of "Lesser-Evilism."
.
The "Lesser-Evil" choice will ultimately destroy America, the electoral odds be damned!  It may take a while, but America has a better chance of a future history by persisting in the best choice we can muster.  We need to start fortifying that chance now!

Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...)
