Despite recent polls indicating major support for candidates who could provide an alternative to the Democrats or Republicans, incidents against candidates running in the 2010 midterm election continue to persist. One of the most recent incidents is the arrest of California gubernatorial candidate Laura Wells.

The only way to replace the stranglehold on the two-party system by the Democrats and Republicans is to challenge them with another set of two-parties.

The Illinois Greens are very much an up and coming state Green Party. In 2006 they got over 10% of the gubernatorial vote and this year they’re poised to win one or two seats in the state legislature (for some perspective, nationally the Greens have had 4 state legislators ever), along with having some strong statewide candidates.
And Chicago is, from what I’ve gathered, the center of Green activity in Illinois. Their Senate candidate LeAlan Jones – you may remember him as the producer of the radio piece “Ghetto Life 101″ when he was just 13 – is from the South Side of the city and when I interviewed the co-chair of the state party he thought their gubernatorial candidate would do best in Chicago, as well.
And now Rahm Emanuel’s running for mayor in that same exact city. I think you know what I’m getting at.

We keep hearing from right-wing pretenders to the progressive label that the left doesn’t organize or offer ideas. Let’s prove them wrong.

The media’s legitimization of fringe lunatic Terry Jones last week, the man with a history of actions only people sympathetic to the Westboro Baptist Church would support, had one effect that Democrats can be thankful for: it pushed aside talk of an “enthusiasm gap” between the Republican base and the Democratic base, which many think will produce big wins for the GOP in November. At least, that’s the conventional wisdom or meme the media is promoting.

After losing the race to represent the Democrats in a special US Senate election, former Democratic politician (and arguably, institution as far as West Virginia is concerned) Ken Hechler has endorsed Jesse Johnson. Johnson is the nominee for US Senate of the Mountain Party, West Virginia’s affiliate of the Green Party.
