I hope you two are our candidates again in 2016. I think that getting name recognition like ROn Paul did for the Libertarians and Nader did for us in 2000 is key to getting our name back in the running and getting us towards that 5%.
Love you, Jill & Cheri...no matter what happens tonight, I want to keep hearing a lot from you guys a lot in the future. I cast my vote for you today, not just in solidarity with your presidential campaign, but because of what you both stand for.
Okay then ... could someone please ask (or hopefully Jill reads this!) what Jill would think about running for lower offices, and/or encouraging mobilization for other Greens in these offices? I loved the presidential campaign but lower offices might have a better chance in practice, which would get the ball rolling for future presidential campaigns.
Thank you for your candidacy. Your platform represents a truly exciting option for our nation. I wrote in your names on my SD ballot. I don't think my ballot was counted. It's an eerie feeling that an educated, law abiding citizen of a 'free nation' can cast a thoughtful vote only for it to be discarded. Nevertheless, work will continue to build consensus around the green party platform.
First year that I was able to vote my conscience- which is huge in a swing state like Ohio. Proud to have voted for Jill & Cheri. Let's mobilize and get Greens in local and state positions so we can make a change and bring an even stronger showing for 2016.
@ James Hoefelmeyer South Dakota has all of 3 electoral votes, so basically, anyone who didn't vote third party basically threw away their votes. That's how broken the electoral college system is. The popular vote doesn't matter in most states. So you did the right thing.
Thanks for working hard to promote the Green Party and to give a voice for so many. A viable third party candidacy with a complete message and progressive worldview is so important for our society at this time. God bless you both for your efforts.
