Raw Story features Green criticism of two major parties

Featured prominently on the front page of the progressive news site Raw Story:

“This is a very opportune moment to tell people that whether you elect Democrats or Republicans, you’re basically getting a GOP agenda,” Scott McLarty, a national spokesman for the US Green Party, told Raw Story.

The Green Party, officially founded in 2001 with organizations across the country, has, like all modern third parties, been unable to muster up the clout to compete in major national races. But it has gradually made headway in statewide elections, and has hundreds of candidates running for offices next month.

McLarty claimed the Democratic Party has largely gone all in with the GOP on issues such as war, civil liberties and military spending, and is moving to the right on major national issues such as health care and climate change.
