Why the Dems voter shaming is laughably disingenuous
It's that time of the year again.
If you do anything other than vote for Joe Biden in November — vote third party, write in Bernie or abstain, you're a Trump supporter. For those waiting to be won over, "it's time to get in line" seems to be the order of the day.
This is the math of the neoliberal elites.
Abstaining or voting third party = voting for Trump.
This gets repeated over and over again.
Tonight’s election in Ohio 12 serves as a reminder that we are not a parliamentary system of government, so votes for the Green Party made by people who believe the Democratic Party is not progressive enough are in effect votes for the Republican candidate.

Jill Stein got just 1.1% of the vote in 2016, and the Dems absolutely f*cking lost their sh*t because of it.
The Dems spent years engaging in all sort of insane konspiracy theories because of that 1.1%, eventhough the Libertarians got three times as many votes and both parties ignored it.
It's past time to point out that there is a third option being ignored by the Dem's math, other than just abstaining or voting third party.
Data from a Hill-HarrisX poll released Wednesday indicated that if the presidential election were held today, 10 percent of registered Democrats would vote for President Donald Trump.
So roughly NINE TIMES the number of Democrats intend to vote for Trump than Greens and Independent will be voting for the Green Party candidate.
Now if the Dem's real objective was to beat Trump, don't you think that making sure that their own voters didn't vote Republican would be tops on their agenda?
But it isn't. The Democratic establishment is largely silent on Democrats that vote Republican, so they must be cool with it.
OTOH, Independents and Greens, voters from OTHER PARTIES, get shamed by Dems for voting for the political party that they are registered with, and reflects their values (unlike the Dems, who have absolutely no intention of representing these voters).
In what world is a party entitled to the votes from other parties? That's not democracy.
Finally, there's the math problem.
If one Dem vote for a Dem = one for a Dem
and one Green vote for the Greens = one vote for a Republican
then what does one Dem vote for a Republican equal?
According to this math it equals Three votes for Trump (one actual vote for Trump, plus any non-vote for Biden is one vote for Trump, plus one vote taken away from the Dems).
That the Democrats don't care about Dems voting for Trump just shows that the Dems real purpose is to neutralize the left, not to win elections.
