Every few generations, we Americans are called upon to defend our country. To defend it not so much from foreign dictators or war or terrorism, but from those here who have no commitment to progress or democracy or representative government—no commitment to anything except their own out-of-control minds and the bottomless pits of their egos.
Our society has thrown up these people before:
And we have always thrown them out.
And now our generation has its own: the most dangerous individual ever nominated by a major party for the highest office in this country.
His base wants few details and fewer facts; they just want to burn it down and blame their failures on the collective other. And Donald John Trump is their demonic messiah in Oompa Loompa's clothing.
We must stop him.
It is not pleasant.
It is not fair that we have to do this.
But it is our turn.
Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is slamming both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, saying neither major party's nominee is an "acceptable" candidate.
"To me one is death by gunshot wound and the other one is death by strangulation," Stein said in an interview for Politico's "Off Message" podcast.

I seriously can't understand how anyone would prefer Hillary over Trump unless you're a raging liberal. I find it terrifying.
There is really only one good explanation for the success of Donald Trump, the most absurd candidate that any party has ever put forward.
From the moment he announced his candidacy riding down the elevator in Trump tower and claiming that Mexicans were rapists, through a long list of statements each more absurd than the next, he was greeted first with laughter, then chuckles, then silence and now dread.
If you watched that [video, or read the article] (and if you are at all on the fence you should) you wonder ...
how on earth- or in hell- could this man actually be nominated by a major party, and be seriously in the running? The question that it raises is: are there that many fools, or that many bigots, or that many crazy people in this country?
