Message from Co-Chairs

From senior co-chair Jon Olsen:

Why is there a Green party? Let me count the ways:

1. We have a political system addicted to petroleum, war-making, and
pharmaceutical drugs, and their influence annihilates even mild
political opposition within the two corporate parties--witness
Kucinich, Dean, and Sanders. Instead they gave us Hillary and Donald.


2. Global climate change is a fact of life, but one of the corporate
parties imagines it is imaginary!


3. The Bill of Rights gives us assurances that the government will
protect us from abuses, yet water protectors are brutalized, women's
reproductive privacy needs are violated, prisons have become
medieval dungeons, and black and brown people are killed for trivial
traffic offenses, like missing a taillight! Then their killers are acquitted.


4. We desperately need a single payer medical system, and instead they
sabotage even the highly inadequate gains made under what they
derisively call "Obama care," with a plan far worse, all to give back
even more wealth to those who are obscenely rich already!

And so MUCH MORE! Get it now?
