Let’s think about candidate suppression for a bit. The Green Party is fully in support of protecting and restoring voting rights. See local rally flyer below. Voter enfranchisement includes having candidates who represent your views. What the major parties and corporate media do not talk about is candidate suppression. Remember H. R. 1 and the outcry about voter disenfranchisement? In that same bill were these elements:
- the matching fund requirement was increased by a factor of five;
- the limits on donations and expenditures candidates can receive and make was eliminated;
- the amount of money national party committees can give to candidates was increased from ~$5,000,000* to $100 million.
*correction: two percent of estimated voting age population
Some legislatures across the country have been busy limiting access to be on the ballot and others to cast a ballot. Both efforts stifle democracy. Source
