Dear Greens: Don’t screw this up.

Dear Greens: Don’t screw this up.


Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich, Bill Fletcher, Leslie Cagan, Ron Daniels, Kathy Kelly, Norman Solomon, Cynthia Peters, and Michael Albert have written an open letter to the Green Party about their 2020 election strategy. They pose a vital question:

It is election night 2020. The vote tallies are in. Which way would the 2020 Green candidate feel better? Trump wins and the Green candidate gets 250,000 votes across the contested states, more than enough for Sanders, Warren, or whoever to have won? Or, Trump loses and the Green candidate gets no votes in the contested states, but a bunch extra in other states as a result of having more time for campaigning there?

Read their letter here. They hope that it will spread widely and spark a useful public discussion. Pass it on!
