    Joe Manchik netted 1,127 votes, which those votes could easily have gone to Danny O'Connor. In an election which only 1,766 votes separates the two did the Green Party just cost the Democrats a chance to win in Ohio?

    Need one party with one goal. Create good paying jobs for lower class. The changes necessary to create jobs will invigorate the economy making it good for everybody. Trickle up economics. It works so good there is even a name for it capillary economics. Trickle down does not even deserve to be associated with economics. Trickle down results in hoarding and stagnating money. That produces a recession. Every attempt to consolidate the wealth at the top has produced a recession. The result of every recession is more money and property forced into the upper incomes. Economists know this but are pressured to not talk about it because their subsistence is dependent on the upper incomes.

    But is the Green Party slicing votes off of Democrats? This Green Party candidate is a certified nut. In the article, Joe Manchik thinks he's "a descendent of aliens from the Pleiades star cluster." I'm concerned because these useless candidates could wind up hindering the Blue Wave in this year's mid-terms.

    In my state of Wisconsin they probably got some people to vote for them. According to salon.com, they were the spoilers.

    Danny O'Connor just netted 190 votes in Franklin County. Looks like this race is getting tighter.

    Democrats need to solidify behind one issue that leads to peace and prosperity. One anchor issue that will automatically satisfy shortcomings up and down the list.
