This has been one of the more important things that has been posted here. It needs ANOTHER bump.

Write-In Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic primary as a protest vote against bloody Barack Obama and the Democrats not giving America a contested primary. This is what I plan to do.

I am an Independent since 1996 but I change parties for the primaries to whichever race strategically best expresses my social justice values. So that I can vote for or against whomever is most important to vote for or against.

Elections are our one time what we get to really express our political free speech. Don't be handcuffed by the two party system rules and dogma. change parties to express yourself or to bump the candidates who best reflect and respect your values.

Fuck the two party hegemony!

Vote third party, don't throw away your vote on a Liz Warren write-in. A far more effective form of protest would be to get behind one of the credible third-party Reform candidates such as Rocky Anderson.

That is your opinion.

Anderson may or may not reflect your values. (Or you may simply like the herd following him.) Warren reflects my values. I am not a herd beast. I do not support the party system.

Nobody will notice or care if Liz Warren gets a couple dozen write-in votes. It's basically the same as a non-vote. She seems like an honest public servant and I hope she wins her Senate seat - for which she is running as a Democrat by the way. But as a protest vote for President? Pointless. Send a message, get behind a third party candidate who calls for an end to the corrupting influence of corporate money in politics.

Blah, blah, blah.

You sound just like every Democrat who has ever tried to con me out of my values.

Party hack herd beasts will never understand how a non-conformist Independent individualist thinks. And I frankly don't care how you think.

your values include wasting votes on people who aren't even running, congratulations. you'd rather vote for a Democrat who isn't even running for president, than support a third party calling for reform... I guess old habits die hard.

This needs a bump, for those that haven't seen it.

What's happening now, has been a long time in the making.

Liz spells it out without the politics.

I wish her well and Gods speed, in her career.

Wonderful stuff! Thank you!

Ms. Warren is a heroine of mine.

And why don't we want her to lead OWS ?
