How Labor Can Break the Two Party System The two parties have sold unions out, especially the Democrats! They take our money, use our membership, and then leave us high and dry! You can't be a REAL labor leader and support the Democrats and Republicans! We have a duty to the movement, our unions, and the members to do what is right, not what is safe! We are not pawns of the Democrats and Republicans, and we owe them nothing. The Green Party is the future.

From one organizer to labor leaders: It's time to put an end to the two party system! Why are we, the strong men and women of the labor movement, bowing down to the corporate bosses and politicians, when we could run for office, win, and do what we need to do. But here is the catch, we CANNOT run as a Democrat or Republican; those two parties are too corrupted. If we run with a clean and fresh party such as the Green Party, we can call the shots! It's time we make history and do the right thing.

Protest Activism Nonviolence does not equal complacency I went to a protest in Philadelphia this past Saturday, and it was more disheartening than anything else. The contrast between the righteous causes featured in the speeches and on the signs and on the fliers and the, as a fellow protester said to me, "complete lack of solidarity" was striking.

Green Jesse Johnson picks up major Democratic endorsement in WV US Senate race After losing the race to represent the Democrats in a special US Senate election, former Democratic politician (and arguably, institution as far as West Virginia is concerned) Ken Hechler has endorsed Jesse Johnson. Johnson is the nominee for US Senate of the Mountain Party, West Virginia's affiliate of the Green Party and the only candidate in the race opposed to mountaintop removal.

EPA will hold 4 meetings on hydraulic fracturing (aka fracking)...where will you be? * * Fracking, a method of extracting natural gas that pumps hundreds of chemicals into the ground, is destroying communities and lives all over the country. This is one chance we have to come together as people that must drink the water, breathe the air, and eat the produce of our nation to tell the EPA: NO FRACKIN' WAY!

Take action on the BP disaster: protests near you (including national events on 6/12 and 6/26) Hello all - hopefully I can make this into some kind of a short series or get someone to help me with this, but if not you'll probably see at least one more diary on the subject from me. Basically, here's a post where I'm trying to assemble all the information for protests that you need to know in order to take action against BP and for some kind of a clean energy future.

Help urgently needed: Stop anti-democratic Prop 14 in California! This June, California voters will decide on Prop 14. The Yes campaign is well-funded by the big businesses that would benefit from it. If passed, it would create a top two primary system, which would mean more corporate money in politics, less voter choice, and the death of all California minor parties. Your help is desperately needed to stand up to the special interests pushing this measure.

No Fracking Way! This Earth Day, while an oil rig was burning and sinking and spilling out into the Gulf of Mexico, I joined a small band of protesters during my lunch break to tell the government to stop a similar crime against nature, one that is taking place in my home state of Pennsylvania. And that crime is called "fracking" - a dirty and disgusting and poisonous way to get some unnatural gas out of the ground.

Obama DoJ indicts NSA whistleblower...are you mad yet? So the Obama Administration successfully indicted an important recent whistleblower, a man who revealed a lot about the secret (and very, very possibly unconstitutional, not to mention immoral) wiretapping programs at the NSA. This is not just a single instance of outrage. It is a microcosm of the Obama presidency, the political success of corporate America, and the failure of its opposition.

So where does the state single payer movement go from here? The solution, the real health care reform that we've been asking for since Teddy Roosevelt's time, lies with the state single payer movement. And, at least here in Pennsylvania, we're moving full speed ahead. All that this bill means for us is that we'd better move fast if we want real health care reform any time soon.

Where have you gone, Albert Einstein? Where are our Einsteins today? It seems that even ordinary citizens with in an interest in politics bare a greater resemblance to James Carville than Einstein or Martin Luther King or John Steinbeck. Radicalism has waned in politics, and although moderation is frequently what uncreative thinkers in the media salivate over, this is a terrible shame.

Glenn Greenwald: 'This is what the Democratic Party does; it's who they are' In a post on Salon, Glenn Greenwald reveals to readers the essential tactic of the Democratic Party leadership. It's not trying to get Republican support, it's not filibuster reform, it's not registering people to vote. It's much more manipulative than that.

Bob Barr booed at CPAC for saying 'waterboarding is torture' Yesterday afternoon, former Republican Congressman and 2008 Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr had the audacity to say, "Waterboarding is torture." The reason it took audacity is that he was at CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. He was promptly booed.

Thinking beyond the two party system I'm not going to pull any punches here. I detest the two party system. I believe that it undermines representative government. It makes our government more responsive to corporations than to citizens. It decreases the chances of progress and it results in many good ideas being shut out of the national political debate.
