[Marxism] seeking Henry Kissinger's endorsement

My guess is that the Republicans are in a similar place as us, but for
different reasons: they, too, do not see "their" candidate on the ballot. I
think it was obvious that most of the traditional Republican Party types
were backing Rubio and Cruz. Now they're being expected to endorse the guy
who insulted them and their families, who accused the last GOP President of
failing to stop 9/11 (while hanging out with people who think he was in on
it), who mocked one of the last GOP nominees for being captured and
tortured by communist guerrillas in Vietnam, and who spent much of his time
in the orbit of the Clintons. On the other hand, they have Clinton, who
they and their party machine have spent decades painting as a Communist (if
only!).

So I would not put too much stock into who the Republicans end up
endorsing, whether Clinton, Trump, Johnson or nobody. They are in panic
mode as their party collapses.

I really think we should spend less time discussing the same stuff over and
over about Clinton and Trump and more time discussing what a long-term
strategy after November looks like. It seems that most of you have resigned
yourselves to voting Green. I am doing the same, but A) I don't live in a
state where it matters and B) that is only a ritual I do every 4 years,
it's not much of a plan. Perhaps we should discuss that instead.
