You're so nasty to me :(
(General comment).

: SDF: In the US, one can compete for a political party's nomination by putting one's name on the ballot for a primary election, held some time before the final election, when the winners of the primary races for each party are pitted against each other.

Do you support that, or the selection of candidates by dues paying party members?

: SDF: Electing a President really goes against the Green principle of decentralization, grassroots democracy, and community-based economics -- all a Green President would do is try to keep the Big Boys preoccupied while power devolves to a more local level.

Just following on from a debate I saw in latest New Left Review- would the greens support moves to take America towards Parliamentary democracy- perhaps as an interim measure ongetting lower level democracy (i.e. stri;pping the presidency of power?)

: No, of course the Green Party has no leaders. Or is it that we're all leaders?

Thats good to hear.
