It should be a law and there should be penalties. You don't vote? You don't get to vote in the next election either. You don't vote? You don't get your Social Security check next month.

American politics is a two party system: Democrats versus Republicans. For Stein and the Green Party, the way forward takes the third path. "It's hard to have a revolutionary candidate in an anti-revolutionary party," she said.
