U.S. Presidential Election; Green Party should endorse Obama, while endorsing Greens for local elections
Please stop criticizing President Obama and presenting unbalanced data. I recommend that you focus on local elections for now, and build your base.
The last time I idealistically voted third party in a presidential election, Reagan got elected. We "Green"-sympathizing third party voters inadvertantly took votes away from Carter. By default we helped usher in the very Reagan/Bush era of fear that you are criticizing.
Please stop trying to take votes away from Obama, the lesser of two corporate evils. Instead, you can recommend that all Greens vote for Obama while you continue to build a firm foundation locally.
Focus on local elections. Build your base.
