A good question…..and the answer is yes….not because of the issues but rather because the media does not want to gum up the system with more than two parties……and because the 2 parties do not want to relinquish their strangle hold on the political system.
This piece covers the history and the directions of the two Green Parties, Germany and USA…..(a historical perspective and thank you)
In countries like Germany, the Green Party wields real power. But in America, not so much.
Many Americans value environmental protection and want to see more of it. But Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate, is drawing only 1 to 3 percent in recent polls, even in an election where many voters dislike the major candidates and are looking for alternatives.
Stein certainly has worked to differentiate herself from the two major party candidates. In July she asserted that electing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton—probably the choice of most pro-environment voters—would “fan the flames of … right-wing extremism,” and be as bad as electing Donald Trump.
The media would have to actually report political news if there were more than the 2 parties…instead of driving the conversation and being used as a propaganda tool.
The system has kept the Green Party from its rightful place in American politics…..work must be done if we are to ever move past the domination of the wealthy in our politics….
Nothing irrelevant about the Green Party…..just worthless diatribes and recriminations by the political elites……
Do the country a favor and at least check out the party before you vote. The US deserves a party of the common people….Dems have long since relinquished that mantle……why not the Green Party-US?
Do NOT believe the hype…the Green Party is relevant and much needed.
