The ultra left prefer to think ill of Clinton rather than to capitalize on the opportunity to help destruct the GOP by running candidates in a majority of elections, both city, county and at state level, by learning to learn what it takes to be a representative.
The problem is too often policy comes in terms of broad statements like - lets stop all military actions overseas - ignore existing treaties like NATO which the US participated in when they aided the 2011 European military action in Libya - yet the ultra left prefer to bleat about how hawkish Clinton is by honoring that long standing treaty.
It's very easy for Jill Stein to talk about ending all military overseas when she knows she'll never be in real office - it is easy to make grand gestures about military spending when her constituency will never loose their jobs because she is shutting down military plants causing people to lose their jobs. She will never have to explain why electronics now cost three or four times the cost because we haven't managed trade relations with China.
It's easy to say we will end all global warming and turn all our traditional power plants into renewable energy sources when again you will never have people losing their jobs and needing retraining to be able to get new jobs.
Like Sanders who never even bothered to prepare policy with balanced budgets, which Clinton did, Stein knows she doesn't have to balance anything.
And to me it is the Greens who are wasting the golden opportunity to form an ultra left opposition of the Democrats by running candidates, by learning about policy - learning how to write policy, because this is a golden era where we could be watching the destruction of the GOP which would be one of the best things to happen to this country.
