Down with the TWO Party Politics

Filed under: Daily Reflections,NaBloPoMo — by sunflowersreflections @ 11:44 pm

In yesterday’s election, the Green Party candidate for governor of Illinois captured 11% of the vote.  This makes Illinois a three party state – at least for the next four years.  Green Party candidates will not have to meet the strict signature requirement when they file election petitions for the next four years. 

I have long had many problems with the two-party system that currently governs our nation.  I may not agree with the Green Party on all issues, but I am very happy to see a a third party on the ballots.  It is my hopes this will open the door to other parties to have a spot on ballots.
