I noticed in the extended debate from the other night she appeared to be a staunch believer in class struggle and conspiracy theories pertaining to members of the upper classes, the war in Iraq being primarily about oil, and had the same sort of cynicism and belligerent tone in her words on opponents as I remember from Dennis Kucinich. I am starting to get the impression that I agree with her on many issues but often reach those same policy prescriptions via very different lines of thought. Her negativity and at times militant vibe in general are, along with the aforementioned concerns, making me start to sympathize with dead0man's attitude here.

There is a very real chance I'll withdraw my support for her in favor of the Justice Party candidate by November.

Vote for a candidate that has a chance to win.

So vote for Stein or Johnson.
Anderson is much better than Stein. He should of ran for the nomination of the Green and Peace and Freedom Party nominations.

He is, but since it was "chance to win" I did it by ballot access.

Better platform than the Republicans and Democrats combined, plus I'm actually inclined to trust her when she says she believes the things she does. I may consider voting for her, really.

Redalgo is in Montana.  The only candidate with a real chance to win Montana is Mitt Romney.  We really need to drop this notion that this country has a single presidential election.  The national popular vote is merely an aggregation of 51 separate elections, so the only election one is voting in is a statewide one for a slate of electors.  Therefore, the only candidate with a chance of winning the election a voter in a safe state is participating in is the candidate who will win that state.  Thus, if one should as a general rule only vote for candidates with a chance, then it is not even worth voting in a safe state, because we can be virtually certain who the winner is.

I voted for her for the same reasons I voted for Nader in 2008.
I don't live in a swing state so I can vote for whoever I feel my positions are closer to.  I like Obama and I prefer the democrats over the republicans, but I don't approve of drone attacks that kill innocent civilians and make people in the Middle East hate America.

I might have voted for Rocky Anderson instead but he wasn't on the ballot.

Anyone in the Green Party is a massive HP.  It is, without a doubt, the most dangerous third party in America.

...because it's so effective, right? How many elected Greens are there, anyway? I'd say it's a lot less than the party that's actively seeking to stop economic recovery for political purposes Tongue

Really?  The Green Party is impotent, bordering on irrelevance.  I can't understand your antipathy.
