NPA Candidate Rankings: 2014

By Anthony Noel
NPA Volunteer

More than 10 months ago, when these elections were on barely anyone’s mind, The New Progressive Alliance’s Ed Griffith had already been hard at work on them.

Besides being a prolific contributor to the NPA Blog – where he has amassed more than 5,000 references in articles supporitng NPA’s contention that our electoral process is a sham, with far-reaching negative impacts on all Americans – Ed has led our push for recognition as a United Nations NGO. And each January, he begins searching for alt party and independent candidates in the next cycle, then seeks their endorsement of the NPA’s Unified Platform.

In the three cycles since NPA’s founding here at MyFDL, more than 80 candidates have embraced the UP’s commonsense policy objectives. Of the 16 who endorsed the Platform earlier this year, 10 made the general election ballot – giving almost 40 million voters TRULY Progressive options to the two-party trap.

We’ve linked below to these candidates’ profiles, which were prepared by NPA volunteers and based on the candidates’ responses to a detailed questionnaire we sent over the summer.

2014 Electoral Offensive - Minnesota

By Anthony Noel

Tell Robin Hensel “You can’t fight City Hall” and she’ll probably laugh in your face.

Hensel’s been doing it successfully for years, despite her city of Little Falls, Minnesota’s dogged efforts to silence the free-speech and peace advocate.

40 Million Freed from the Two-Party Trap!

by Anthony Noel

Well that was quick. One more long weekend and it’s “Adieu, summer.”

Meaning of course that next week, what we’ve increasingly taken to calling “silly season” begins. Its bombast will scream from our TVs and radios when we wake Tuesday morning, and it won’t stop for the next two months.

What these news outlets won’t tell you – won’t even mention – is that this November, almost 40 Progressive million voters have real options to the two corporate-owned parties.
