    In Haiti we speak of unfair elections an the host addressed certain peoples or parties not being able to participate. but we don’t seem to have a problem with that here in America. KPFA doesn’t have a problem with it. its not even discussed. third parties in America are essentially outlawed and persecuted. The Green party most of all–persecuted, obfuscated, ignored, arrested, outlawed. Where is the resistance? Why is Pacifica silent?
