    to support, not green party.  This site is to promote better dem candidates.

      There have been more than two parties in the United States for a long time. The problem has been the lack of opportunity repressed voices have to be heard. Is the website truly as you say "to promote better dem candidates"?

      Perhaps healthy debate would be appropriate then to improve the candidates people hear from.

        When third parties are on tickets, they split the vote which allows the true opposition party to win.  This nation has already been through that electorial evolution.

        The Tea Party is further along the learning curve than you are at this point.  They understood they needed to take over the republican party to get their way.  They understood that if they formed a republican lite party, then they don't get anything they want because if the dem party does not have a spoiler party, they win with concentrated votes.

        If you really were serious about making change in this nation, you would put up a candidate in the primaries for dems to choose from.  That is what progressives do and we are making progress.

        But I think you already know all of this.  I think you are perfectly willing to let women suffer the lack of reproductive health care rights while you play spoiler on the sidelines.  Tell me, with a third party split, how were you thinking to help women in their fight for reproductive rights?
