LOL. The Green Party is a joke. 24.189.254.24 (talk) 11:31, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Lol, so are you! Lord of Reckless Noise Hooray! I'm helping! 11:33, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
They're grifters. They poke their heads out like meerkats every five years, beg for money, and leave. It's appalling that so many leftist heavyweights have fallen for their act. Plutoniumboss (talk) 20:12, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

No mention of the US Green Party's obsessive love for psuedoscience and woo?

We mention some of it in the UK Greens section, but yeah, we should have a section regarding the most common undercurrents of woo found in mainstream parties. They really need to hold off on their anti-nuclear rhetoric if they want AGW mitigation to work, and I remember doing a voting advice application with the Green position on NASA funding being that they'll support it only if "there are no military applicaions."

Oh, and not just that. They also support publicly funded homeopathy. 166.137.191.38 (talk) 04:28, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Not shocking. Add it in. Osaka Sun (talk) 04:38, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Greens do not support publicly funded woo, they just simply encourage it. They are not obsessive over it either, please read their platform http://www.gp.org/what-we-believe/our-platform/17-platform/39-ii-social-justice#HealthCare though it does mention it is a far cry away from publicly funded woo. — Unsigned, by: 131.204.254.77 / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 19:13, 04 October 2014 (UTC)

Split into at least three articles[edit]

This article covers entirely separate parties in different countries with platforms that are not necessarily the same (especially on woo where they can differ drastically from country to country) in one place. I think it'd be better to have a separate article for the US and UK greens. The greens in other countries could either get their own articles or be handle in the articles on the political system of those countries... Laurogeita Hamabost (talk) 17:42, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

eh, only the US and UK have any useful information -- nobody should use RW as a half-assed Wikipedia for Green Party electoral success. I say two articles. oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 02:17, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Well at the very least Green Parties that have shaped government policy might get a mention... They are the forth or fifth or sixth largest group in the European parliament and have (at least in Europe) greatly influenced Socialist and Social Democratic parties. I think Australia even had a government depend on supply and confidence of one or two Greens once... Laurogeita Hamabost (talk) 14:33, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
