THE GOP IS THE PARTY OF FACISIM
The democratic establishment loves to whine about electoral issues – the electoral college is unfair, gerrymandering, the integrity of voting – but they lack the spine to offer solutions. We need massive electoral reform in the country!
– Elect the president by popular vote

As much as I hate the two party system, the Green Party of America is an absolute joke.
In the 17 years since they were founded, they have only won 5 state legislature seats (the highest office a green has ever held) and every single one of them changed their affiliation to democrat or independent shortly after winning.
They have no interest in party building, organizing, or educating the public. They run absurd candidates for offices way beyond their skill level, the special election in Ohio is the latest example. Their high point was the Ralph Nader candidacy, in which he received 2.7% of the popular vote
In theory, the Green Party is vitally necessary for a two-party system with party platforms so rigid and legacy-laced that not all potential candidates can get with either of them. I get it.

Put your feelings of Nader aside and read this. It’s worth the time
“Raising money from Wall Street, from the drug companies, from health insurance companies, the energy companies, kept [Democrats] from their main contrasting advantage over the Republicans, which is, in FDR’s parlance, “The Democratic Party is the party of working families, Republicans are the party of the rich.” That flipped it completely and left the Democrats extremely vulnerable.”
The legendary consumer advocate describes his decades-long perspective on what brought the Democratic Party to its current state of collapse.
Meanwhile, the party stood by a lawmaker who has previously been indicted on charges of sexual assault and is accused of domestic abuse, and who is currently under indictment on perjury charges. It also backed a former lawmaker with multiple arrests on his record, including one in 1994 vehicular homicide, over the vice chair of the Rhode Island Democratic Party Women’s Caucus.
