MIT Professor Noam Chomsky has endorsed Jill Stein for President of the United States. He made his endorsement in a letter sent to Green Party members in advance of today's Massachusetts presidential primary. The letter reads:

"I hope you’ll take the opportunity of the March 6th Green-Rainbow primary to cast a vote for resurgent democracy. A democracy that thrives outside of the Democratic and Republican Parties that are sponsored by and subservient to corporate America. And I hope you will consider joining me in supporting Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein – both with your vote and with a contribution to her campaign for people, peace and the planet.

As you know, popular anger at the political and economic institutions, and the subordination of the former to the latter, has reached historic heights. And for sound reasons. There could hardly be a better time to open up political debate to the just anger and frustrations of citizens who are watching the country move towards what might be irreversible decline while a tiny sector of concentrated wealth and power implements policies of benefit to them and opposed by the general population, whom they are casting adrift.

Jill Stein’s campaign is unifying the national Green Party, and ensuring that an urgently needed voice for democracy and justice will have a place on the ballot in the November election. Please join me in supporting Jill on March 6, and

I've been supporting Roseanne Barr for the Green nomination. I guess he and I will have to disagree.

Jokes Aside, Roseanne Barr for President - ABC News
Whoever the strongest candidate would be - that's who I support for the Green Party nomination.

Jill Stern seems to be leading in the primaries

Results from yesterday’s Green Party primary in Massachusetts haven’t officially been tallied, but we already know presidential candidate Roseanne Barr didn’t pick up any of its 11 delegates. She didn’t get on the state ballot in time.

Having accumulated six delegates from the party’s four previous state races (IL, OH, WI, AZ), the iconic sitcom mom was holding onto second place — right behind frontrunner and Lexington, Mass native Dr. Jill Stein, who has a blowout lead with 27 delegates. (Again, MA results not yet included.)

I have nothing against Roseanne Barr and admittedly I have not read what she stands for either, but to me I just cannot see her as being electable no matter how qualified she may be.

I will most likely be voting for Jill Stein. It looks to me like she will probably get the nomination. She has my vote unless an independent jumps in the race who is more electable but completely comparable on the issues.

I wonder if someone like Dennis Kucinich, who just competed and lost in the Democratic primary in my district, would consider an independent candidacy. He has the national name recognition, so the mainstream media couldn't completely ignore him if he took the independent route all the way to the general election. Just a thought. I don't love Kucinich, but at least he's an actual liberal.

But regardless, for now, Stein 2012!

Well once Ron Paul drops out and unless he runs 3rd party I'll be voting for Rocky Anderson.

It would be nice to see these two team up in some way
