Who To Vote For Now?

As I devastatingly say that Senator Bernie Sanders has officially dropped out from the 2016 presidential election, he has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. He has decided to endorse her for only one reason: To defeat Donald Trump. Although Hillary has agreed to fight for some of the things Bernie Sanders was very passionate about including health care and minimum wage, Hillary has proven to be untrustworthy which makes me wary about her becoming our next president. At the same time, I also in no way want to vote for Donald Trump to become president because he has proven time and time again that he can be ignorant on many important issues. I want to vote come November, but it saddens me that these are really the only two candidates in the running to win.

Because I have been so frustrated with the two presidential candidates, I did some research to see if there was any other way to end this race. In doing so I became aware that there is a third political party of the United States called the Green Party. The Green party is a left-wing political party that promotes "environmentalism, nonviolence, social justice, participatory grassroots democracy, gender equality, LGBT rights and anti-racism."

The 2016 green party presidential candidate for 2016 is Jill Stein. A 99 percent match with Sanders, this politician from Massachusetts could be the answer for a bright future for the next generation. I am all for a woman president, and Jill Stein already holds the record for most votes received by a woman candidate for President of the United States in the general election.

I still don't know how I'll be voting in the November election, however Stein is definitely the option that I've been looking for. It is a lot to think about and until I have more information about every single candidate running no matter what party, my mind will never be made up.
