Gary Swing on Election Reform

Election Reform is point eight of the Unified Platform.  Gary Swing is a Colorado candidate who bravely ran for Congress twice as a Green Party member with the full support of the New Progressive Alliance. Though unfunded, Gary worked tirelessly against great odds to get out unpleasant truths both major parties ignored. Because Gary has been in the arena more than once fighting the good fight, I think his comments on election reform are very germane.

So You Want to Reform the Democrats from Within? Part One

    Reforming the democrats from within is an honorable intention. In fact, that is how the New Progressive Alliance started in 2010. See About NPA. Unfortunately we found just as the neocons co-opted conservatives, the Democratic Party and neolibs co-opted liberals. There is now no significant difference between the two major parties.

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.
