Jim wrote last night about how the Democrats and Republicans in Congress don’t always act as people expect them to. Money influences legislation as much as, or more than, political idealism.

The Green Party of the United States espouses the following 10 key values:
SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
COMMUNITY-BASED ECONOMICS AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE
FEMINISM AND GENDER EQUITY
RESPECT FOR DIVERSITY
PERSONAL AND GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY
Which of these values do you most appreciate? Which ones make you feel the most skeptical of the Greens? Are these Green values at all related to your general opinion of the Green Party?
