Jill Stein and Her Army of Malcontents

Well, the people have spoken loud and clear on Tuesday
November 8; no Hillary, no third term of Obama policies,
no more ramming statism down our throats; Donald Trump
was voted in, and Hillary Clinton was told to take a long walk
off a short pier. But some of the lefties just won't accept defeat;
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who didn't win a
single state, has filed to recount the votes in some key swing
states, which happen to include your favorite Peasant's home
state of Wisconsin, claiming to "stand up for a vote that is
accurate, secure, fair, and just, in which every vote counts."

Now, this is just what it looks like, folks: a quixotic campaign,
even more than the one she ran in her attempt to win election to
the presidency, for the purpose of embarrassing and/or deligitimi-
tizing President-Elect Donald Trump's victory and his nascent
presidency. While the lefties always demand that we conservatives
respect and live with the results of elections, especially those with
the presidency on the line, which they win, they will behave like
spoiled and unruly children when we win these elections and get our
presidential candidate elected. These hypocritical dimwits will and do
make excuses, accusations, and conspiracy theories as to why they
lost, and this year's presidential election is certainly no exception!
They have gotten behind Jill Stein to march onward in a feeble
attempt to make mischief for Trump and those who voted for him.

So what has greenie Jill Stein gotten for her efforts? Not a heck of
a lot. Pennsylvania has shut her out, as Stein could not get her papers
filed on time there to get the Keystone State folks to recount their
votes. In my state a judge has declined a request by the Steinies to
have the recount there done by hand, which would have been more
prone to ballot hanky-panky than the other methods. And while
defeated Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton initially cheered Stein
on, many in Clinton's party have come to realize that Stein's efforts
shall be for naught both in terms of changing the election outcome
as well as to denigrate victor Donald Trump. Finally, the cruelest and
deepest cut of all, Stein's own Green Party has turned away from her
and her ploy. The Green Party recently issued the following statement:

"There are significant electoral reforms needed to make elections more
democratic and more representative of the people. While we support
electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support
the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein ... The decision to
pursue a recount was not made in a democratic or strategic way, nor
did it the established decision making process and structures of the
Green Party of the United States."

OW! It sounds like poor ol' Jill cheesed off not only the Trump voters
and the Republican Party, and perhaps the Democrats as well, but
her own party pals to boot! It appears that Stein has embarrassed her
fellow greenies with her cockeyed crusade. And the last your amused
Peasant heard, the recount in Wisconsin has shown Donald Trump
GAINING more votes, rather than losing votes, with similar findings
in some of the other states' recounts.

The Green Party gave a fitting coda to this comic farce in their
summation of their statement: "As a candidate, Dr. Stein has a right
to call for a recount. However, we urge the GPUS (Green Party of
the United States) to distance itself from any appearance of support
for either Democrats or Republicans. We are well aware of the
undemocratic actions taken by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign.
Greens cannot be perceived to be allied with such a party."

The Green Party has acquitted itself admirably on this matter.
Their failed (in more ways than one) candidate Jill Stein should,
for the good of not only her party but for the good of the nation's
electorate, pack it in.
