Sharon Hall’s June 28 letter expresses her need for other choices. She mentions Trump and Clinton and negative comments about both. There are, however, four other political parties and candidates from which to choose.
At www.sos.ca.gov/elections/political-parties, the California secretary of state has listed the six state qualified political parties – American Independent, Democrat, Green, Peace and Freedom, Libertarian and Republican parties. Their political party statements are available. Information to register as No Party Preference is also available.
If what Ms. Hall means by no choice is no choice for significant change from the status quo, there are two options. First, with the greatest likelihood of winning, would be a Bernie Sanders’ candidacy as the Democrat nominee.
Second, Jill Stein is the best choice for change. Sanders essentially borrowed the Green Party agenda, got everyone excited, and called it a revolution. If Stein got “Trump-like” free air time and didn’t have to sue to be included in the presidential debates, Ms. Hall would see she has a choice depending on her values and courage to vote them.
Never miss a local story.
