Green Party Candidate Robert Fitrakis Talks Elections, Police Brutality, And The Two Party System

Robert Fitrakis Of Ohio Green Party

“There are numerous problems with the U.S. political system. First and foremost, there is the fact that we allow private, for-profit partisan companies to secretly program our election computers and central tabulators. Also, both major parties have been so compromised by Big Money and corporate money, they offer no real solutions to working U.S. citizens and those most in need of government services. We have the least electorally competitive legislative branch among the western industrial democracies. Ninety percent of our Congressional seats are gerrymandered and rigged in favor of an incumbent. So it is no surprise that recently Harvard and the University of Australia ranked the U.S. dead last, the least democratic of all the 47 long-standing democracies in the world.”
