OK – and since you did have some involvement with the Green Party, you
were able to give us something of your personal experiences – which is what
we need to know about – and I continue to ask, are there any members/readers
here who are now involved with the Green Party or Democratic Socialists who
can give us some personal view on what is going on?
By the 1980’s … if I recall this correctly, there were many who supported the idea
of citizens running for office, but the reality quickly became clear that the DemParty
was only going to support newcomers who could bring $$$ with them, or monied
contacts/supporters. That’s the kind knowledge we need based in experience.
Others who went through the Green Party also quickly saw that it had been co-opted
by the Dem Party and that it wasn’t working the way it was intended to.
As I was looking for the spelling of one of the next leaders who came in and cleaned
out the Dems from the Green Party … phonetically CA MA O …
I came upon these bits of news, though not as current as we would hope to see …
Former federal Green party candidate faces trial in Germany …
_VANCOUVER—A former federal Green candidate disavowed by the party for her anti-Semitic views is on trial in Germany for publishing videos denying the Holocaust. _
_and I lost the search link – _
but a Green Party candidate in 2017 reciting the lack of coverage which ended
his formerly successful campaign.
We can learn some of these things on the internet, but nothing like those who have
personal experiences now telling us … what’s really goin’ on.
