Today I joined the Green Party, they seem to be the only ones sticking up for the 'little guy' that also havent been corrupted by the dirty world of corporate donations.

That school of thinking is partly responsible for the two party nightmare. Whenever one can find door #3, one should take it.

There are over 30 registered political parties in the United States.

Too bad they're all labelled "Door #3"...

The common knowledge definition of third party is any American political party that is not Democrat or Republican.

Is it really because they won't take them or because they aren't being offered?

Quote:
Greens support a wide-range of health care services, not just traditional medicine which too often emphasizes "a medical arms race" that relies upon high-tech intervention, surgical techniques and costly pharmaceuticals. Chronic conditions are often best cured by alternative medicine. We support the teaching, funding and practice of holistic health approaches and as appropriate, the use of complementary and alternative therapies such as herbal medicines, homeopathy, naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine and other healing approaches
In other words , the greens are a bunch of idiots that want to harm all of society by making a bunch of fraudsters win.

At least the oil companies produce energy. At least the big media corps do not make us die. Republicans and Democrats sure have better shadowy sponsors than the green's hoax fake medicine industry.

I think, since Thomas is from Northern Ireland, he'd be more likely to have joined the Green Party in Northern Ireland. Yes, website design really isn't their strength, and for that matter, neither is JPG compression.

A student city; that explains a lot.

Not that Bangor - the Bangor in Northern Ireland. It's in North Down and is the largest town on the island of Ireland.

I feel a bit stupid now, my apologies. My grasp of geography is only matched by my ability in dealing with embarrassment.

I was thinking of the wrong Green Party.

Having been to both Bangors, I definitely prefer the one in NI. The Welsh one is a dump IMO.

I suspect that each individual who does this makes a bigger difference than you can imagine.
