NJ Greens run on lower taxes and property rights

One of the things that frustrates me no end is the assertion that the Green Party fits into the traditional "left-right" political scale, when in fact those old approaches really don't fit we greens. Case in point: four Greens running for office in New Jersey. According to this article, four Greens are running for local offices in the Holmdel, NJ area, and all four are concerned about high taxes driving people from their long-time homes. They also are concerned about people losing their property rights through the use of eminent domain.

Is that a Green position? Yep! Is it "left", or is is "right" to support people against government excess? That I don't know, but I do know that it's Green!
