The two corporate-controlled parties have divided the state in half, with a strong libertarian and conservative Republican base in the East and a socially progressive Democratic monopoly through the Willamette Valley and I-5 corridor. Greens seek common ground as a starting point to broker peace and unity to protect our ecosystems. Continue reading
