If you have had it with politics-as-usual, there is no stronger statement you can make than to vote for a 94 year old woman. I am not just a "none of the above" vote (although I am indeed that!), I will actually work to create a wave of change when I am elected. But, win or lose, your vote will be a shot across the bow of the old system that no longer represents us.
I am running for the US Senate against a good man, Judd Gregg, who has allowed himself to become an enabler of George Bush and his neo-con scourge now afflicting our nation and the world. I am running so that our voters might at the very least send Mr. Gregg a message: that we expect our senators to represent common sense and the interests of our country.
Do the Greens have a better scenario to meet the real and present danger to the planet? I do: let the progressives take over the Democratic party, whose doors are unlocked & whose halls are unguarded. That can be done in 2 to 4 years. If the energies of the Green Party were transferred to a Green Caucus within the Democratic Party, real progress would be possible quickly.
Here is what you and I must do. We must arrange to vote by absentee ballot in the general election, so that we can go to the swing states and work to get out the vote on election day. I will do that, will you?
If you live in a swing state, of course, you can do your work in your own neighborhood. But if you live in a state that is clearly on one side of the ledger or the other, you must get in your car or a bus or an airplane and go, at your own expense, to an area where you can do some good getting people to the polls. You can also do some good in advance of that to make sure that people are registered to vote.
