The Green Party: Targeting Capitalism

The Green Party: Targeting Capitalism

By Alan Caruba

Published 08. 4. 02 at 21:48 Sierra Time

The Green Party has 362 candidates running in 39 States. If they can tap into the uncertainty and resentment of voters, they are likely to draw votes from Democrats in the mid-term elections. Political analysts believe Ralph Nader's run for the presidency in 2000 took enough votes from Al Gore to give George W. Bush a narrow victory.

Unless the economy totally implodes by November 2002, the far left may well contribute to insuring that the Bush White House and the Republican Party regains control of the Senate and widens control of the House. Few people have any idea of what a Green Party government would represent.

One need only visit their site to find out. Its platform, adopted in May 2000, reads like an Ecological Communist Manifesto. Bye-bye, Communist Party USA, hello Green Party.

While the platform comes with a disclaimer that it is not binding on its candidates, you can put money on the fact it represents their political goals, whether they are running for the local school board or for governor. Officially, the Green Party stands for "freedom, equality and solidarity." It's the "solidarity" that is pure Communist lingo, but you get a real flavor of where the Green Party stands when you discover they want to "eliminate corporate personhood" and "end corporate limited liability." These are characteristics that legally define a corporation.

It doesn't end there. The Green Party wants a "mandatory breakup of the largest 500 US industrial and commercial operations" and it wants a "mandatory conversion of the 200 largest banks with 80% of all bank assets" into small, community-based banks. The Green Party would impose taxes on "pollution, source extraction, harmful products" and, if you interpret these proposals correctly, end Capitalism as it exists in this nation.

The Green Party, by the way, also wants "legal recognition of same-sex marriages."

Its platform is pure centralized government control of all aspects of business and commerce, along with a large dose of "universal health care, free child care" and a bunch of other taxpayer-funded freebies.

The Green Party also wants to change the structure of the US government, favoring a "single-chamber US Congress."

The Green Party would "shut down nuclear power plants, phase out fossil fuels, reduce auto-based transportation and expand pedestrian, bicycle, and rail transportation." It would also "strengthen the Endangered Species Act, ban old-growth logging, clear cutting and strip mining." And it would ban off-road vehicles. In short, it wants to put the auto industry out of business. If you don't think that Greens are total lunatics, think again.

At what point does anyone with any sense at all begin to realize that the Green Party's goals are about destroying the entire economy of the United States of America?

Watch now as the mainstream media begins to bang the Green drum loudly. On two consecutive days, July 22 and 23, USA Today ran the following articles; "Corporate scandals may help Greens" and "Some see environment as GOP weakness." The first article acknowledges that Nader probably cost Al Gore the election. It also notes that Green Party candidates have been given a "nine-step program for recovering democracy from corporate rule." Last time I checked, it is Congress that passes the laws of the land, not corporations.

The lengthy article suggesting that Republicans have to worry about being greener than Democrats is yet another way of forcing the party towards the leftist goals of the environmental movement. Polls, though, consistently demonstrate that 50% of those surveyed felt President Bush was doing a good job of protecting the nation's environment, but 38% thought he was doing a poor job.

Thanks to the constant hectoring of the media and their mindless support of the Green's scare campaigns, a poll in June found that "large majorities" favored stronger enforcement of environmental regulations, higher exhaust emissions standards for cars, and higher emission and pollution standards for business and industry, as well as more spending to develop solar and wind power. All of these represent uninformed viewpoints that would do nothing more than increase the cost of everything. As to solar and wind power, it is a total hoax, offering the worst possible way to generate electrical power.

Between 1990 and 1998, according to the Capital Research Center, the number of environmental non-profit organizations increased from 1,802 to 4,018. At the same time, their assets increased from $3.3 billion to $7.9 billion. There is a movement underway in Congress to increase the amount of cash these organizations can spend on grassroots lobbying by a factor of four. If they can spend $25 today, that would increase to $100 if they are successful in getting the increase. This isn't about protecting fuzzy little animals. This is about imposing their control on everyone's life through the coercive power of the federal government.

The environmental movement is pure Communism, superimposing unelected community councils to replace the most basic form of democracy, the duly elected town, village or city officials. It is control of your life at the neighborhood level, determining everything you can and cannot do. Unless and until Americans begin to understand this, they will remain the prey of these deceivers who use the "environment" to hide their true objectives.

I really support the Green party's existance.

They are fringe enough that their more extreme policies will never see the floor of Congress, yet they will pull the genuine greenie Commies' votes away from the Dems.

Repubs had the same problem and that gave us Clinton, may God have mercy on the US after that.

Someone should send Nader a deodorant stick. The five percent he got must've been from folks who can't smell.

At first glance, I’d say that the fractionalization of the American left is a good thing. But I’m open to other thoughts.

These kinds of councils are vigorously reproducing in Santa Cruz county. They are unconstitutional and most people that sign up with them could care less. Others sign up with them, because they unfortunately think if councils are going to be the new government, they want to get in on the ground floor, thus giving creedence in the public's eye that the groups are legitimate.

I've been trying to find the Green Party platform for the last few weeks. It was easy to find during the 2000 election cycle...

What I was looking for (to show a friend) was the part about setting a "maximum wage," and taxing everything above that at 100%!

He didn't believe that anyone would try something like that...

...a "mandatory conversion of the 200 largest banks with 80% of all bank assets" into small, community-based banks.

While 99.9% of this Green platform is definitely communist horse manure they accidentally hit on one point here that smacks of returning to the constitution our founding fathers gave us. States banks.

They are apparently too dumb to realize that there aren't 200 large banks. Just one.
The Federal Reserve Bank. With the unratified passage of the 16th and 17th Ammendments the duty to coin our national currency, which the constitution gave solely to the government, was handed over to the private and closed institution of the Federal Reserve Board.
A group of wealthy international bankers and businessmen.

This group, which accepts no new shareholders and insisted on no oversight from our government at its inception, pulls all the pursestrings. Previously there was a state chartered central bank (unbeknownst to the Greens) and individually chartered banks in the various states.

The big banking houses of Europe didn't like that much because they couldn't control our currency and thus our government and thereby our economy. It was hard to profit off of us then. So in comes the 16th and Federal income taxes and the 17th to end states sovereignty and the privately owned Federal Reserve to bank all of our money.

Voila! Federal leviathion dancing to the tune of international bankers. Jesus may save your souls, brothers and sisters, but Alan Greenspan will tell you whether you can afford a casket or a cremation.

99% of thier ideas are bogus and highly socialistic but I have to agree with the bank and corporate influence points. First of all the FedBank is the cornerstone of tyranny and probably the first true step towards taking our soveriengty away. Secondly, corporations have far to much influence over the law. Corporations don't work for our best interests so why would we expect them to persue law that is in our best interest?

The rest of that green crap can be stowed in the round file marked useless trash IMO.

The Green Party platform reads like the communist manifesto.

Maybe they will dilute the left and all of those wacko (including the democrats) parties will soon evaporate.

They have become marginalized, dirt/grass/tree/fish/bug/centralized government, worshiping drones !!

Stop the attacks by the wacko, extreme left-wing, enviro-nazis terrorist's on our Freedoms !!

Freedom Is Worth Fighting For !!
