"Some of the points that Jill Stein makes are delusional, I have to say," Balthasar Glättli, a Green Party member of the Swiss National Council, told me. If he were in the US, he said, "personally, I wouldn't vote Stein. I would vote Hillary."

- don't fool yourself there. Party discipline among Republicans has been strong, but anyone who deviates from the party line even a little is derided as a "RINO" or cast in with the ever expanding pot of "liberals" (who are apparently everyone who disagrees with the current platform and has the poor taste to say so).50w
- the old republican party is dead.
We are going to remind those old neocon warmongers what being conservative is all about. Less government, lower taxes, religous freedom, gun rights, freedom of speech, and stay the fuk outta my bedroom.50w

Of course, I know a lot of people who disagree with each other about what most of your list even means, so it's not going to be easy.50w

- The Republican party isn't dead, nor is it even beginning to die. It's supporters are doubling down on it's extremism or simply ignoring it. No matter if it's Republican Trumpers, or Republican anti-Trumpers, they all ignore the basic problems of the Republican party:
Today’s Republican Party [...] has become “an insurgent outlier — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition . . . all but declaring war on the government.”
