Green Party, get ready for a mass influx of Dems


If you're hankering to see a mess of progressives, and recently former Dems, who are seriously looking at alternatives to voting for Obama, check out the comments on any one of many articles posted Sept. 2-3 at CommonDreams.org.

These first two are defiantly rife with mentions of, and opportunities to mention, the Green Party; I commented profusely on the first one:

Odds are you will find many more articles with comments expressing similar sentiments, the following might be a great place to start, the sentiments quoted below seemed much more common in the above articles:

"I'll vote for Palin (Perry) before Obama."

Today We Risk Arrest for Justice; Tomorrow We Organize for It
Letter from Young People at the Tar Sands Action
by Young Climate Activists
http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011/09/02-5
"No votes for any Democrat in the 2012 election, not a local or state or federal level. NO INCUMBENTS either. We've seen that trust got us."
"By the way I think voting for the Green Party candidate for president makes more sense than not voting."

I stressed organizing, voting, and gp.org, see what you can find to comment upon.
