As always, i pop in to bemoan the focus of commenters here, who flock to articles about political horse races in the USA, and do not invest one 20th of the energy and intellect on articles about strategic and tactical efforts outside of electoral politics.
These actions targeting factories of death are far more important than arguing about how to vote “correctly.”
Popular direct action is way more significant in influencing the direction and potential for exponential growth of popular movements, than political party campaigns. But it is treated with yawns, while another article about the Sanders campaign draws thousands of views and dozens of comments.
When Sanders says “It’s not about my campaign” we should say “Thanks, you’re right!” and go get involved with grassroots organizing in our communities to confront the true actors and power brokers who own the political parties and media in the USA.
And we should take a few minutes out of our day and vote for Sanders, or Stein, or anyone running on a Socialist platform. If so inclined we can contribute to the candidate or party of our affection. But the horse race deserves very little of our attention or energy! People organizing to shut down tar sands pipelines, and death factories, and promote real living economies, deserve far more of our attention, energy, and money.
Soapbox moment over.
