I am going to make every attempt to call in.
I haven’t posted much Green Party information in a long time. In December I stepped down from the steering committee of the DC Statehood Green Party. For the last two years I helped run Washington, DC’s official third political party (about 5,000 registered voters). My biggest accomplishment was helping the DC Statehood Green Party candidates receive more votes than the Republican Party’s canidates in the 2006 election by almost 2 to 1.
Lately, however, I’ve become completely disillusioned by the dog & pony show that is American corporate politics. The Washington Post has not even written one story this election cycle on my favorite Green Party candidate, Cynthia McKinney, instead they’ve run only one AP story, and it has already been removed (less than one month old!). By not mentioning other candidates or entire political parties it ensures that debate is silenced and alternative viewpoints do not become a threat to the electoral plutocracy. Frankly, I am quite sickened by it all. The American electoral process is controlled to the point where it’s become meaningless. However, I must remain hopeful.
