There’s that sign again.

Banner and Bummer

First, take note of the last photo affiliated with this story.  That is the GP banner popping up at various protests, marches, and rallies in the metro area.  Second, recognize the antagonism between the governor of one corporate party and the state legislature, both houses with majorities of the other corporate party, unveiled in the article.  That is the other sign to note:  a putative two-party system that leads to bickering instead of co-operation.  Minor parties can lead the way to more representative governance.  If no party holds a strong enough majority, it is forced to work with other parties to get the work of governing done.  The breadth of the populace getting representation is greater.  Alliances may change from one issue to another, but more meaningful dialogue may occur and reinforce the notion of service in public service.  In a two-party system, the corporate parties simply take their turns at the trough.  The Green Party is the party for people, planet, and peace.
