Last night was disheartening for Americans everywhere; the politics of fear tightened its choke-hold on electoral politics on both sides of the aisle. Within the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton gained a decisive lead over challenger Bernie Sanders, and Trump's anointment seems inevitable.
Many are now wondering, what should Independents, the ‘Bernie revolution’, and Republicans do?
The answer is to reject both the political machinery acting to sabotage democracy, and the politics of fear leading us all over the cliff and build an independent political network, funded and comprised of normal Americans, for normal Americans.
Here at the Green Party of Texas, we want to send a reminder that the ‘revolution’ is not over, but that it will not come from voting for the Democratic or Republican parties and their establishment candidates in November. It is time to revolt at the polls - if it didn't matter, then why do they try so hard to keep you away, keep you uninformed about your options, keep options off the ballot?
For all the frustrated and concerned voters and non-voters out there, we welcome you to become part of our independent political network for 2016 and beyond.
Whether you vote for Green Presidential front-runner Jill Stein or any of our other excellent Presidential candidates this primary season, feel safe knowing that we are real people, people without the financial support of billionaires and corporations.
If you want to make a difference in 2016, vote for your values, not your fear. Join us in the Green community to make our country sustainable for the future generations.
It’s in your hands!
