    No Corporate Donations is my number one beef, because that effects my ability to participate and effect other issues in my government.

    The Green party is the rising evolutionary form of political expression in terms of office holding, and expresses my view of the necessary progression: Honor, Truth, Justice, Peace, with the preceding category being a necessary condition for the subsequent one.

    The Green Independent Party hasn’t been bought yet. We still have a chance for real reforms that aren’t driven by corporations or the wealthy.

    I joined the Party in 2000 when I lived in Florida and Nader ran on the Green Party ticket. It was not Nader who got me to join, but rather it was Nader running for a Party I never heard of and looked into and read the 10 Key Values and their platform and I knew I, someone who was not a political person, had found my home. I joined to uphold the activism arm of the Party and still do. I think the amazing thing is that this movement [as this Party was founded on an environmental movement in Europe, where today between Wales and England there are 1,800 Green Party candidates running!] has lasted 30 years in the US despite no Corporate money, a Corporate owned media that keeps people from knowing of us and a 2 Party system that makes rules and laws to make it almost impossible for us to get and keep ballot status! Plus it connects me to some of the most amazing like minded people all over the US and in over 100 countries. That in itself in this world is amazing. If you look into most of the activism organizations in Maine [where the first Green Party meeting was held in 1984] you will find that most of them are headed up by Greens. So when you see a Green running in your area remember we are the voices of change. Come join us. Green and Growing! Love,jacqui

    I’m a Green because we need to build an alternative system of power that refuses to play by Wall Street’s rules of “politics as usual.”
