Vote for Jill Stein Again?

Mother Jones Magazine is asking those who voted 3rd Party why and if they’d do so again. Here’s my answer:

I voted for Jill Stein in Nov 2016. I believe it was the right decision. There was little decent in either of the duopoly candidates. We know that Trump was (and may again be) an awful President. We don’t know what kind of President Hillary would have been. But, unlike Trump, she might have embroiled us in another deadly and destructive major war – similar to our current proxy war against Russia. It is doubtful that she would have begun the process of withdrawing from Afghanistan. Her corporatist bent might have meant more community-destroying free trade deals.

I dislike Biden. I voted for him in 2020 because Trump 1) made cruel immigration policies crueler, 2) tried to repeal Obamacare w/o addressing the underlying crisis, 3) denied the fossil fuel-caused climate holocaust.

But this year, Biden’s 1) full-throated support for endless carnage in Ukraine, 2) refusal to call for an end to arms shipments to Israel, 3) support for oil & gas incline me towards Stein once more.
