: : : : Well, if you believe in electoral / parliamentary 'democracy,' all the power to you. Will you be pulling the 'radical democracy' lever for Gore, Bush, or Buchanan this time around?

: : : SDF: How about Joel Kovel? Another petit-bourgeois?

: : Now that'd be interesting. I wonder how long it'd take for him to do an Audie Bock and abandon his party after election? Have you posted any info. for us about Audie Bock, the Greenie who was elected to the Ca. legislature only to abandon her party to become an independant? She says the party abandoned her. Is that true?

: SDF: I have no idea why I should report to Frenchy/Paranoids/Suckers/Plutocrat-lackeys about Greens/Socialists/Anarchists/Believers in a better world.

Oh, an authoritarian elite, eh? OK. I can deal with that. The bottom line, as reported in todays paper, is Audie Bock abandoned the Greens because they had no means of giving her support. In other words the Green's support is approx. a quarter inch deep. Bock bid adieu to the Greens in order to grub money from other more lucrative sources, like capitalist running dogs.
By the way, have you mentioned your trade background yet?
