Saying No To “Lesser of Two Evils Politics”


NJ’s broken two party system plagues our state with back door scandals and corruption so bad that it wouldn’t even be believable if it was a script from a Hollywood blockbuster. But it seems that the broken two-party system has its evil grips on just about every large mainstream organization there is, or should I say in their pockets.

Well today came a major news announcement from a large mainstream organization, the Seirra Club,which boasts of almost 1.5 million members. The headlines read The Sierra Club Endorses Independent Chris Daggett.

As Fed up by both Democrats and Republicans posted on indybay.org

This November N.J. will hold elections for Governor, the choice is between incumbent candidate Democrat John Corzine and challenger Republican Chris Christie. Somewhere in the background and mostly lost between the shouting matches of the two establishment candidates is the quiet, logical and honest voice of Independent candidate Chris Daggett, his openess a result of not having to answer to corporate lobbyists that entrap the two establishment candidates in webs of deception..

The news also made quite a buzz across the local blog-o-sphere and became a hot topic for discussion.  I have been following Daggett closely in news articles and such across the web and it seems like the announcement was somewhat of a proverbial green light for supporters to come out of the closest and say they would support Daggett.

For example, on NJ.com where the star-ledger reported the story, the normal nay-sayers complaining a vote for Daggett is a vote for Corzine where quickly drowned out by a flood of readers posting “Daggett has my vote”. The traditional scare tactics and fear-mongering just doesn’t seem to have the same effect on voter’s anymore. Perhaps “W” made the American public numb to those tactics.

While those partisans who must remain loyal to their base for whatever reason continue to cry, “Daggett can’t win” and what a “waste of an endorsement” their remains the rest of us, the majority who are registered independent voter’s. Those of us who are in touch with the reality and everyday hardships of struggling to survive, week to week worrying if we are going to be able to pay the next round of bills.

And to minority Democrats and minority Republicans, we are crying loud, across the internet “GO DAGGETT!!”.

NO MORE WILL BEND OVER BACKWARDS AND SAY YES TO THE “LESSER OF TWO EVILS” POLITICAL SYSTEM THAT ENSLAVES US. WE WILL STAND UP AND FIGHT AGAINST THE PARTIES WHOSE SCANDALS AND CORRUPTIONS RULES US, WHOSE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS ARE PUT AT A HIGHER INTEREST THAN NEEDS AND NECESSITIES OF EVERYDAY CITIZENS.

Whose campaign donations side step campaign finance laws to promote politicians who pledge an oath to combat the very practice. We can can change this state. Tell people about Daggett and let them know that we don’t have to vote for someone who makes back door deals with the likes of BUSH and KARL ROVE in exchange for the opportunity to run for Governor. We don’t have to vote for those who have a proven track record of using their political powers to grandstand their own careers instead of advocating for the consituients they manipulate into voting for them with phony campaign promises, fear-mongering and mass psychology.

This year we have the opportunity to bring real change to our government. This year we have the opportunity to vote for an independent candidate that does not have back down to the special interest groups and partisan big wigs that gave him his power. This year we have the power to send a strong message to our government. ITS TIME TO SHAPE UP OR SHIP OUT. And while Corzine and Christie continue to bash each other, I say let them, they are both right. Let the Democrats and republicans wage war with American voter’s to push their health care agendas, it provides us with the opportunity to talk about the real issues that concern voters.  As the Green Party has kindly pointed out for us, both parties are horrible, and they even give us  a side by side comparison of the Democrat and Republican parties for who they really are.

This year you can join me and others like me by spreading the word about Chris Daggett. Send email. Talk to a friend, start a blog, post some messages on Facebook or MySpace. Do anything you can but, don’t… I repeat don’t fall for the nonsense that we have to deal with our system because that’s just the way it is. When they say “A vote for Daggett is a vote for Corzine”, tell them why their wrong.

When they say Daggett can’t win… tell them YES WE CAN!!

The Sierra Club’s endorsement of Chris Daggett is great news. I wish the republicans would stop the Bush/Rove Fear mongering. There is obviously a consensus that a vote for Daggett is not a vote for Corzine.

Daggett is a viable candidate and there are many of this who are voting for him because we know he can win and is the only candidate who can change this state. The Star Ledger’s endorsement echoes and re-affirms that opinion.

We need people to get involved and spread the word about Chris Daggett.

  1. one of the best articles to date.you are only wasting your vote if you don’t believe in the person you are voting for.I along with many others believe in Chris Daggett and what he can do for our state.A vote for Daggett is a vote for true change and the end of partisan politics.The green machine is on a roll and picking up steam.

  2. Daggett and King.. Great comparison. I am glad their are others who have decided to take their heads out of the clouds and write about Chris Daggett!!

    We need to fight this mentality:

    If you can’t choose an candidate choose the one who will do least harm

    How ridiculous … I have a much better Idea

    Let’s say no to the lesser of two evil politics that got us into this mess in the first place and vote for Daggett!!

    Corzine has a track record that speaks for itself. And we are all disgusted by the corruption that has plagued our state under his watch. But what’s the only thing NJ voter’s despise more than corruption? Corruption and Hypocrisy and that’s what we find with Chris Christie.

    Those of you who still believe in Christie as a crusader against corruption, don’t be surprised as more of his skeletons come out of the closet. You need only do a little due diligence for yourself, as I did after I decided that I was not going to vote for Corzine, to learn that Chris Christie is Corrupt.
    Make a difference. Vote For DAGGETT!!! And tell a friend about it

  3. […] both candidates about illegal campaing finance. but people need to wake up and realize that a vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for […]
