Welp committing a crime is definitely something you don't want to do when you are running for president. As noble as her cause was now is not the time to be acting like some 20-year old hippie.

Spray paint something on her property and see how long you'll spend in jail.

Oh good timing with Gary Johnson displaying ignorance about Aleppo. The major parties were hogging the bad press.

All politicians are corrupt criminals. this is nothing compared to the horrid war crimes committed by your probable next president.

^ Maybe, maybe not.

Tsk, tsk, graffiti deserves consequences while deliberate criminality (Clintonistas) continues to get a pass. USA, soft tyranny transforming itself into a banana republic in waiting

Scratch the "de" off and that'd be a funny bulldozer.

I guess she had to have been thinking that being subversive in this way would both get her attention and show solidarity with the "normal" radical. The problem is that it isn't very presidential: she's running to represent both the person who drives that bulldozer, the companies that own it, and all the officials working to have her arrested, and no one wants a disrespectful leader. Further, I wouldn't be surprised if she did this on purpose to give the air that she's being persecuted - so she can be like MLK, since he was imprisoned too. People are going to think this and then say it was just a stunt. So if Stein was trying to channel some of Trump's irreverence here, she failed. It wouldn't have had as much impact, but I wonder if it would have been smarter for a middle- to lower-level member of her campaign to vandalize the bulldozer instead. Then she could tweet a picture with the caption that she approves of the message, announce that it was inappropriate but that she understood, and deal with the person's legal fees privately. She'd then look both respectful and shrewd. What she actually did just looks wild.

Of course, what's truly presidential are corrupt connections with foreign countries - that's just to be expected of a good leader. I have to wonder where the idea that the president represents all U.S. citizens went; Trump and Clinton definitely don't have that mindset, Bernie never did, and clearly Jill doesn't. I might wonder about Gary though, as libertarians tend to include these kinds of ideas in their sterile rationality even if they don't actually follow or care much about them.

The only reason she wants to be President is to pardon herself.

While what she did is illegal, it is also wrong that private companies are now using eminent domain to steal people's land and corrupt judges just rubber stamp it. I mean if our land can get stolen whenever a large corporation or private special interest demands it does what's the point of land ownership for the common man?

I suppose it's ok to rape natives' resources. Nothing wrong with that.
