The poll results below show how most Americans are feeling about the sleazy "Republicrat" party.
Here are the relevant points from the 2004 national Green Party platform:
1. Political debate, public policy, and legislation should be judged on their merits, not on the quid pro quo of political barter and money.Green Party candidates offer a genuine alternative and a clean break with the corrupt politics of the two elite, establishment parties.
2. We propose comprehensive campaign finance reform, including caps on spending and contributions, at the national and state level; and / or full public financing of elections to remove undue influence in political campaigns.
3. All viable candidates at the state and federal levels should have free and equal radio and television time and print press coverage.
4. We will work to ban or greatly limit political action committees and restrict soft money contributions.
5. We support significant lobbying regulation such as strict rules that disclose the extent of political lobbying via "gifts" and contributions. Broad-based reforms of government operations, with congressional reorganization and ethics laws, must be instituted. At every level of government, we support Sunshine Laws that open up the political system to access by ordinary citizens.
I encourage voters to be brave and courageous -- Vote to 'Renew Our Republic'!
I will only accept campaign contributions of $500 or less from individuals.
Vote for Dave Chandler for U.S. Congress!
Forty-seven percent of Americans think most members of Congress are corrupt, a significant increase from the beginning of this year. The American public is much more likely to trust the Democrats in Congress rather than the Republicans to handle the issue of corruption, continuing a recent trend. The vast majority of Americans believe corruption in Washington involves both parties equally.
