If you were in a "safe" state like CA or NY...

And Jill Stein came out STRONGLY for basic income, would you vote for her? (Obviously in states still up for grabs you wouldn't)

(disclosure - I'm not a Jill Stein supporter or even know much about her but I am STRONG for Guy Standing and basic income).

She hasn't the judgment, experience, or temperament. She would be better than Trump or Johnson, but that is all I will say about her.
As I noted in the title, if you are interested in Basic Income, you need to elect a Congress that would discuss it. The President could try to get a law passed, but only Congress can do that job.

Do your Congressman and Senators support basic income? If they don't, that is where you need to put your efforts.

35. No. Why would I? We have politicians here actually working on basic income; I've voted for them

What's the point of voting for Stein? If you want to vote for someone who's positions you agree with 100% and don't care about political pragmatism at all, the best option would be to write yourself in. Yeah, it's a wasted vote, but if you're wasting your vote anyway might as well give it to yourself.

Personally, I'm going to be voting for people who are actually changing things and not just running vanity campaigns. Like I said, I've been supporting politicians who are actually working on basic income. I have no interest in supporting people who talk about it and do absolutely nothing to further it (or even do things that would make it more difficult, which Stein does when she says Trump and Clinton are equally bad).

39. Why would that override

everything else she's wrong about?

Plus, merely coming out strongly for something (just look at such things on the part of candidates for every office out there) means very little.

Perhaps the most essential thing to keep in mind if you're ever tempted to vote third party, is that every single member of Congress is a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent who caucuses with the Democrats. Had Bernie Sanders become the nominee and then were to be elected, he'd have had all of the years behind him when he was in Congress and would probably have been quite effective.

Hillary Clinton has long been a Democrat herself and did serve a term and a bit more as a Senator. She knows how law-making works.

Jill Stein and Gary Johnson do not have anyone in their respective political parties in Congress. If Libertarians or Greens or any other party out there were really serious about someday electing a President, they'd go about having people run for all of the lower level offices out there, and over time would have a viable political presence. Instead, they run for President with little notion of what they'd really have to do if they somehow attained that office.

If you think a basic income is a good thing, then advocate for it through your own Senators and Representative. Maybe start some sort of lobbying effort.

65. Sorry. You're closer to basic income with Hillary

than you are with Jill Stein. Besides, jobs and a strong safety net should be the focus. Better to target that money to infrastructure and education. You would never get a basic income in this country without a hit on the safety net. It would be a voucher or government debit card. Not wages, not cash. What if people blow it all? And who would give them credit if they have no income beyond basic?

67. I admit I'm torn

 

I come from the left wing of the Dem party and I have supported the Greens in the past when I lived in a liberal safe state. I want the Greens to succeed and the Dems to move left. Ideally, the GOP implodes the Dems become the new conservative party and the Greens become the new liberal party.

I have lived through Reagan, I have lived through Bush and, while I fear Trump's temperament, I also believe he would be a lame duck president from the onset. I've seen this in Minnesota when Jesse Ventura was elected. So, the fear argument doesn't work on me anymore. Really, it just makes me mad.

That said, Stein is no more qualified to be president than Trump. Senate? Sure. I'd vote for her for any office except president. Over the last few elections I've come to the conclusion that the POTUS, the most powerful position in the history of the world with nuclear codes available, that person needs have experience in public office at some level. That person needs to have some familiarity with the workings of Washington and, if possible, the workings of foreign powers.

As lovely a fantasy it is to send in an "outsider" to clean up Washington only one of two things will happen - that person will be a lame duck or that person will be run over by the legislature.

So, under these circumstances, no, I won't risk electing a completely unqualified person for POTUS. If Hillary were running against Cruz or Kasich I might vote Stein in a safe state but not if Carson or Fiorina were the candidate.

78. Great question

If we somehow ran someone that was terrible (say our own version Donald Trump, but thankfully we have safe guards in place to prevent that from happening) but I happen to think we've got the absolute best candidate on the ticket and I think I'd have a very hard time not voting for a Democrat.

I really like Jill Stein but I like Hillary more.

If you're a Democrat you vote Democrat EVERY time, even if you're not crazy about the candidate (you'd have to be crazy not to this election).

80. Nope, no, no way, not a chance.

No fucking way.

She is a total whack-a-loon with not a clue.

81. There is no safe state until the votes are counted. GOTV

Volunteer for phone banks.
Volunteer to pick up and take them to the polls.
Know a friend or two that isn't going to vote. Hold a voting party with the price of admission an I voted sticker.

There is no safe state until the votes are counted.

82. Wouldn't even consider it. Hillary is the best choice anyway.

She's the one.

83. No

Even if I supported basic income, I really don't like Jill Stein. Anyone who says there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans has zero credibility with me and doesn't get my vote.

Since I live in a solidly blue state I might consider a protest vote to send a message in certain circumstances, but there would have to be a Green (or other party) candidate I liked a lot better than Jill Stein, and the Democrat would have to be significantly to the right of Hillary for me to consider it.
