Green Party Candidates

With 2020 approaching, undercard Presidential candidates in third parties have been working extra hard to get their message out. With the third Democratic Debate fast approaching and two Republican Primary challengers to President Trump, election season has officially kicked off. While the Republican and Democratic candidates have had extensive coverage, little has been given to third parties. The Libertarian Party has relied on mostly Libertarian outlets to cover their scattered field, but what about the Green Party?

Planned Parenthood decided against accepting the 60 million-plus dollars it gets from Title X Funding. Why?

The reproductive healthcare company has bet on the Democrats winning the presidential race in 2020. Planned Parenthood withdrew its participation in Title X funding after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed injunctions by federal judges against the Trump Title X administrative Rule.

Democrats have a strategy to retake the Senate in 2020, along with the Presidency. With strong candidates across the board, a new leader emerged in July. Amy McGrath announced her bid to remove Mitch McConnell from his congressional seat in D.C. The “Ditch Mitch” phenomenon gained traction in Kentucky after the election of President Trump and the polarization of the two parties. As a result, a new challenger approaches, with Amy McGrath stepping in as a left-of-center Democrat to threaten the neoconservative sector of the GOP.

Bernie Sanders Joins Eric Swalwell in Being a Gun Grabber

James Sweet III | @jsweetIII

Senator Bernie Sanders, a Democratic Presidential Candidate that believes he can survive the stress of the Presidency at the young age of 77, just made enemies with gun-wielding Americans. Previously, Bernie Sanders only wanted to ban the next generations from owning “military-style assault weapons”. Now, he wants to take away your guns. It shouldn’t come as a shock to many. After all, bad ideas need a disarmed populace to take effect as the majority of Americans dislike “democratic socialist” policies. After three mass shootings within the past week, Bernie seems to have been pushed further towards authoritarian policies. On Twitter, Bernie Sanders expressed his support for a national gun buyback program.

Sound familiar? It should, because Californian Congressman and former Democratic Presidential Candidate, Eric Swalwell, proposed the same program. Swalwell also took the astounding position that the United States government would just nuke any American that attempted to resist the federal ban and buyback of “assault weapons”, so perhaps this program isn’t what’s best for the American people if all-out war is necessary to squash any dissent.

Democratic Presidential candidate John Delaney unveiled an ambitious new campaign policy on Sunday: mandatory national service. The former Maryland Representative’s plan would require any Americans born after 2006 to participate in one of several paths of public service. These include enlisting in the military, participating in community service projects, or joining a planned “Climate Corps.” While seemingly well-intended, the plan would allow the federal government to force young adults to serve their country, sending a clear message to Americans that we cannot even control our own lives.
