Bernie Sanders: Break the corporate duopoly: Run for president in 2016 with nominations from the Green Party, the Vermont Progressive Party, and perhaps another left-wing alternative party
Sanders–Green Party Article Is Published at Firedoglake
Feb 16, 2014 — Green Party media coordinator Scott McLarty published an article at Firedoglake on Thursday about Sanders going Green. It's big news for our effort; it means the Green Party has seen the merit of our initiative. Excerpt:
"Progressive Dems have tried for decades to steer their party back towards its alleged principles. Despite their best efforts, the Democratic Party continues to slide to the right. . . .
If you want a revolution, you have to do something revolutionary. The political revolution that Sen. Sanders advocates requires a sustained movement that’s represented by a party in the electoral arena. The party must be permanent, serious about electoral participation, independent of the bipartisan establishment, and beyond the reach of corporate PACs, lobbyists, and campaign checks. One party fits that description."
