The platform of the Green Party of the United States includes 10 key values. These include grassroots democracy, social justice and equal opportunity, ecological wisdom, non-violence, decentralization, economic justice and community-based economics, feminism and gender equity, respect for diversity, personal and global responsibility, and future focus and sustainability.
In addition to these 10 key values, the Green Party believes that the current two-party system of the United States has been corrupted by the influence of corporate money in politics, and it therefore does not truly represent the will of the people. The Green Party advocates for a fundamental change of the current political system in order to stop war, end short-sighted environmental exploitation for profit and protect the civil rights of U.S. citizens. The Green Party platform also points out that the two-party system of the Democrats and Republicans has fallen completely under corporate control and is therefore unable to address the crises facing the United States and the world.
The Green party states that in order to return political control to the hands of the citizens, it is necessary to elect third-party candidates to office who can provide long-lasting grassroots solutions rather than simply upholding the values of wealthy corporate donors.
