Twelve Reasons NOT to Vote for Jill Stein & Ajamu Baraka [View all]

1) Jill Stein is a fraud. Check out her list of campaign contributors per the FEC. The top five donations are from corporate interests --

2) Check out Steinís hand picked choice for VP, Ajamu Baraka. He's a radical agitator who has publicly referred to Bernie Sanders as a "white supremacist" and labelled Sanders supporters as naive shills.

8. Jill Stein runs for office. It's what she does. She runs for something every two years

9. Stein is not qualified to serve, nor does she want to. If she won the election her first act would be to demand a recount.

10. Since 2011, Jill has refused to release her tax returns. Apparently she's making good money running for President and has some perks and investments that might not jibe with the act she puts on.
