Ballot Access News reports that 3/8ths of Texas U.S. House Races Have Only One Major Party Candidate. If that's not reason enough to build third parties I don't know what is.

A Crunchy Blogger in IL has decided to "Go Green" as in Green Party, not "Let's eat organic compact florescent bulbs."

Craig R. Withers also thinks we Greens are worth a look...I like this trend!

Our friends over at the Babblemur & Akaoni Power Hour! have a pretty good current run down on Green Party presidential contenders.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that John Wages Jr, the first elected Green in that state, is running for US Congress.

The Green Party Peace Network has run a piece about a commercial being run at AMC theaters which glorifies the military. Pay to watch a film and get propaganda to boot!

The New Mexico FBIHOP writes that Carol Miller is running for Congress again. Last time through Miller won 17% of the vote, leaving the Democrat out in the cold come election day. Personally, I hope she wins 20% this time, even if it does mean that the congress has one less Corporate Democrat in Washington DC.

The League of Women Voters has announced a debate for this Sunday in an IL Congressional debate which will include the Green nominee. Equal access...what a concept!

The Greenwich Post reports that the Green Party caucus that was planned for earlier this month will happen on January 13th.

Will Yeager sent me some stuff about plans for the Venice, CA Greens. It's hiding behind the "Read more!" link at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for the comment and followd it here. LOVE the blog! Shannon
Well hey Crunchy One. :-) Seems to me that we have some stuff in common. I was born and raised in Georgia, have lived overseas (Venezuela) and spent many years in North Carolina (Asheville). Like you, I live in the 'burbs, and wish I lived where it was a bit wilder. Thanks for the kind words.
Calling Don Wiviott (from New Mexico) a corporate Democrat seems woefully uninformed.
Well LP, in looking over your new blog I can see that you would appear to be what one might think of as a hardcore Democrat.

I would like to know why you think Don Wiviott is not a Corporate Democrat.
