I took an interest in the Greens after attending a standing room only for Ralph Nader in 2000 and it deepened after Peter became his running mate in 2004. Nader was not running as a Green that year because "Demogreens" were afraid that he would steal votes from John Kerry.
> In other words, I am a strong supporter of the Green Party (even though I am not a member). I always vote Green, including for Howie Hawkins who is on Marxmail. Half the editorial board of the North Star website are involved with the Greens either as candidates (Brandy Baker and Jim Brash) or as frustrated members (Mark Lause).
> I have political principles that I am strongly committed to. One of them is total opposition to both the Democrats and Republicans. In the best of all possible worlds, the Labor Party that some leftish AFL-CIO bureaucrats formed back in the 1980s would have taken off but they lacked the nerve, just like the Demogreens.
> I don't think that the Greens will lead a revolution in the USA that is so desperately needed but it is a way-station on that path. If something better came along, I'd hook up with that in a heartbeat. But surely you must understand by now that I would rather be waterboarded than vote for Hillary Clinton.
