Once Again

The Green Party nominated a candidate to run for president. I haven’t read the Party platform. If it advocates measures to aggressively curb fossil fuels, stimulate production of alternative energy, and reduce air and water pollution, there may be much to be said for it. But the Green Party decision to once again promote their own candidate rather than support the Democratic ticket is an act of rank stupidity. The same behavior almost certainly was responsible for the election Bush and the defeat of Gore in the 2000 election. By running a candidate in 2016, they helped Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton. This year, once again there is zero chance that the Green Party candidate will be elected. The only effect of its efforts will be to hurt Biden and help Trump. These people think of themselves as idealists. In fact, they’re nihilists.
