Re: “Letter to the Editor

Interestingly, the writer leaves out that she profits from the current system requiring physician recommendations to obtain a MMJ card. Should 205 pass, those who benefit from cannabis (including those whose afflictions do not appear on Arizona's list of acceptable conditions for treatment with medical marijuana) will be able to bypass this expensive annual requirement and Moroso Medical Center will lose a lot of business.

Re: “Editor's Note

As good a reason as I've heard so far. Not good enough for me, but I have a little more faith in a liberal third party doing more if they get more (votes, exposure, funding, etc). You vote for Hillary and I'll keep pushing to turn red states green this cycle. I honestly don't think either effort will result in catastrophe so the battle for the left can be fought another day. Good luck out there.

Re: “Editor's Note

Peabo, you still don't seem to understand that voting for Hillary Clinton in Arizona does nothing to help her win or stop a Trump presidency. That's not a straw man or a cliche, it's a reality. So if you're against Trump (which I'm certain we both are), your vote becomes an opportunity to lend support to a candidate who represents your values rather than participation in an effort to prevent the greater of two evils from taking office. For me, that person is Jill Stein and my vote for her is harmless to Hillary supporters' efforts.

Maybe seeing a true liberal receive a record number of votes this cycle will cause Democrats to adopt some of her stances. Maybe it won't. But voting for a candidate I dislike in a state she has no chance of winning seems ludicrous. If I lived in a blue or swing state, I'd have more soul searching to do. But I don't, so I don't. It's not my system, I just vote in it.

Re: “Editor's Note

Right on, Peabo - vote for Clinton to show your support for Monsanto, fracking, Goldman Sachs, wars of regime change, trade agreements that strip our nation of its sovereignty, and a host of other issues/interests your candidate clearly doesn't pander too.

Tex, myself, and others here are addressing those who wrap themselves in the fear of a Trump presidency to justify voting for Hillary. If that's the editor's only reason for voting Clinton, living in a red state renders it nonsensical and we're pointing that out. I, for one, have no interest in debating the merits of supporting the standard bearer for neoliberalism/neoconservatism with members of her cult. Your vote is your voice - at least you're exercising it...

Re: “Editor's Note

What exactly makes you think your vote for Clinton in Arizona will do anything at all to prevent a Trump victory? Arizona's electoral votes are going to Trump, end of story. If you don't believe that, you're living in a far more fantastical land than Bernie supporters were accused of when they called for free tuition and Medicare for all. There are about 28 states in the union responsible for preventing a Trump victory, and we ain't one of em.

A vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein (if she manages to get on the ballot after the Green Party deadline fiasco) goes a lot further in actually helping the country - increasing their vote percentages can lead to third-party participation in future debates and allow them to qualify for additional funding. In fact, by wasting your vote on Clinton in an overwhelmingly Trump state, you're doing damage to the country by signaling support of Hillary Clinton's neoliberal mandate.

Way to go on the irresponsible language in the headline, dipshit.
