Green party is anti-environment

Like pro-life really means pro-death
GOP means anti-American, pro-traitor
Law and order means white supremacy and repugs get away with any crime

The Green party is now an anti-environment party at the leadership level in any case. They seem to relish being spoilers and letting conservatives and repugs values win all around the world. The Green Party has allowed repugs like Bush and Trump into office at the expense of Democratic candidates that would have been much better for the environment.

It saddens me that folks who legitimately are for better environmental policies get snookered by this version of the “green” party. Let’s hope they catch on soon.

They play on the emotions of the left and take donations along with federal matching dollars.

Why are there any Green Party members speaking up to defend their party?

City Council seats, and sometimes they win and serve. No one on DU seems to acknowledge this.

10. why are the greens fighting to get onto ballots like Wisconsin - even trying to hold up ballots?

Trump won Wisconsin by less than the votes the Green party received. They are now again trying to hold up ballot from being mailed out and making it easier for the repugs to again steal the State. Are the green's happy if they get a % of the popular vote and allowing trump to steal another election?

Here’s a shocker - political parties want to be on the ballot. They have candidates from county commissioner to president. They have spent a lot of effort, time, and money to either get a candidate elected, or get a message out. JUST LIKE THE DEMS, GOP, ETC.

The amount of entitlement it takes to even ask this question is astonishing.

Let’s repeat it for the back row, slowly - The US has more than 2 parties, and they are trying to win elections and increase party draw to become a major party just like the Dems and GOP. They achieved official major party status briefly whe David Cobb ran as their presidential candidate. Genuine competition from the left isn’t “spoiling” your votes. You’d better figure out how to draw their base.

12. Really? So no strategy to get what is better for the country? Your response 'Your votes' is telling.

another tell:
'you'd better figure out how to draw their base' - and if we don't i suppose they're okay with 200,000+ Americans dying because Trump was elected.

who knows who you are - your responses sound like talking points?

A splinter-ist and a wrecker and a likely witting agent of reaction, but cute....

There is a Lenin pamphlet entitled 'Left Wing Communism, An Infantile Disorder' I would recommend to you. You would doubtless have to bone up a bit on the several years following the Great War to get its fullest effect, but even without that you could probably follow the piece.
