Wow. So they know both parties are corrupt and yet their solution is to vote.
Your dance up until now was very nice, but here you make a common misstep.
There are way more than two US parties, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_parties_in_the_United_States and there is at least one widely established party that takes no money from corporations and stands for campaign finance reform, peace, and social justice. At the age of 47 I have always voted, but seldom voted Dem, and held my nose when doing so. When I read the 3rd point in the GPUS Platform (@ gp.org/committees/platform/2010/democracy.php#316100), which reads:
A. Political Reform…
3. All viable candidates at the state and federal levels should have free and equal radio and television time and print press coverage.
I realized that I had always been a die hard Green.
If I were a single issue guy, well let’s just say that is my favorite plank.
Wake up folks, if the Green Party isn’t the party for you to express an electoral voice, well you had better build better one.
Even so, I would recommend close study of the GPUS as to learn what not to (re)do in building a consensual based legal political party that takes no corporate money.
For starters, occupy (steal) this platform: gp.org/committees/platform/2010/
