I've talked about the potential of the Green Party here at Voices before, especially a Green Democrat alliance.
The Greens have been out of business here in Centre County and State College for quite a while, which is really kind of crazy when you think about it.
If there is any lesson at all to be drawn from the last 7 years, it is that leaving politics to the politicals is a disaster. They are corrupt. They are incompetent. And they have no vision.
There has never been a better time to rebuild the greens. Climate change news is coming on stronger every day, and, if the scientists are right, it is likely to be top news for decades to come. Experts say average oil prices will be higher in 2008 than ever before. And the economy is shaky at best, and possibly riddled with rot and staggering into a recession.
The Green message has never had a better chance of being heard.
So, I plan to start talking up the idea of starting a new Green Party presence in Centre County and Central Pa.
If you have any interest at all in the idea, get a voices account, or use your voices account, and join the conversation.
