The people at the convention were mostly kind & simply want a more just America. Many traveled to Houston at personal expense.
I've seen Occupy Wall Street, the Greens & the Sanders campaign mocked and marginalized by many Democrats. If you are smarter than all these folks or feel they are deserving of ridicule---then that is your thing.
(Top Texas blogger Perry Dorrell did a great job covering the Green convention at Brains & Eggs.)
I'm not asking you to vote for anybody. I'm not saying here what I will do in November.
I'm just saying these folks are doing their best and have useful things to offer.
They've chosen involvement over non-involvement.
They are part of a broad left-of-center outlook that at its best is hopeful and intellectually open. You are certainly free to embrace a contrary outlook.
Let's make common cause with all our allies and friends and move forward.
