News of a Green nature

First off, I will post about Cynthia McKinney's visit to my tiny town last night in a day or so. I am trying to formulate what I want to say. Suffice it to say that at this moment I am more convinced that she can help us grow the Green Party than ever before, and am also convinced that no one else has the combination of political experience and effective campaign history she does. If she is willing to serve, we simply must nominate her, and I am committed to helping her secure all of South Carolina's votes at the national convention. Of course, as I have written before, I am not universally adored anywhere, so having my backing may not be as much as it would imply.

Now, on to the Green News:

Richard Winger at Ballot Access News writes that the state of New Mexico is refusing to say if the Green Party is ballot qualified or not. Geeze, a bureaucrat avoiding giving a straight answer...imagine that!

The Green Party of Orange County will be meeting this Sunday from 2-4pm in Irvine. This meeting’s speakers will focus on local impeachment efforts.

Has a Lyndon LaRouche clone stolen the Green Party ballot line? That's what About Roberts says in his comment to an article about Vic Roberts of Taylorville, a retired coal miner who has sought Democratic nominations for Congress in the past. This year he is running as a Green Party candidate.

If true, I sure hope the folks in IL catch this one. We do not need to be associated with the LaRouche faction of whatever space they occupy on the political spectrum.

Up in Maine, Dan Skolnik is lauded and attacked all on the same webpage.

Cynthia McKinney says that Washington DC is effected by Greed Gone Wild, and fortunately for us all, she understands that the money party and the war party have merged into one corporate party. She also gives Greens credit for being out in front on pointing out that the Emperor was wearing no clothes.

Greens (and others) spoke with students at Carlsbad High School about what the Green Party believes in.

Has your local chapter asked for access to political science classes and such? Mine has not, but maybe we should!

That's all for now folks. Skol!
