Brown University columnist urges vote for Stein

steinColumnist Glenn Yu writes in The Brown Daily Herald of Brown University, “When the general election comes, [Sen. Bernie] Sanders will be gone, and again we will be forced to choose between two evils. We will have to cast ballots not for the candidate who represents our values, but for the candidate who demonstrates the most sanity. For this reason that I urge you to vote for Jill Stein, the Green party candidate, in the general election. Her campaign platform calls for many of the same things that Sanders calls for in his own campaign.”

Yu says that Stein “differs from Sanders mainly in that she is not working to win the presidency necessarily but to meaningfully check the power of the two existing parties. She is working toward revolution and a system that values viewpoints and ideas over party affiliations and corporate donors.” He also argues that because of the Electoral College system, “for most of you, your vote probably doesn’t count anyways if you vote for an establishment candidate.”
