I saw your post on one of the Joe Biden or Trump threads where you said (to paraphrase) that Biden isn't left enough and America needs someone like Bernie Sanders. 

It's interesting because I see parallels between Bernie and the Greens.  Amazing ideas but preaching to a society that as a whole, isn't quite ready yet. 

Given your thoughts on Bernie I would've pegged you as someone who would not care about a 'waste your vote' within a two-party system and support an ideological leftist party.

I can agree with the parallel you are suggesting with the Greens and Bernie, although I still think their situation has become so corrupted now that it gives Bernie or Bernie copycats a better chance than the Greens in Canada.

I don't go to the polls to waste my vote so I nearly always vote for the candidate that has the best chance of beating the Conservative or in the case of B.C. politics, the Liberal.

However, I don't run around advertising my opinion because it could be destructive to parties such as the Greens and I don't want that.
