There’s a great deal of speculation these days about whether Mitt Romney will run for the Republican presidential nomination for the 2016 election, and whether Hillary Clinton will run for the Democrats.
There has been much less speculation, however, about whether an old presidential candidate from the Green Party will return for another run. […]
Memo to the Green Party, such as it is: Please, can someone over there step forward as a serious presidential candidate soon? Here’s who we’ve got as Green Party presidential candidates so far:
There’s Midge Potts, a die-hard 9/11 Truther who believes that no plane hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2011.
It is in […]
We do not yet know whether 2012 presidential nominee Jill Stein will run for President again in 2016. One other candidate has announced a Green Party presidential campaign, however. Her name is Midge Potts.

Almost as soon as the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee released its report on torture by the CIA, the Department of Justice reiterated the intention of the Obama Administration not to prosecute anyone who was involved in the torture, even though torture is a crime.

Is it any wonder, then, that Senator Coons refused to support […]
Back in November, I wrote a critical article about the Green Party, wondering why the party had failed to find congressional candidates to run in most of the districts across the United States. Since then, many congressional candidates have stepped forward. In some districts, more than one candidate has come forth.
Such is the case […]
A campaign, whether it’s run by a major party candidate or by a candidate from a smaller party, has the opportunity and responsibility to speak to the issues that matter to voters. Luis Rodriguez is failing in that duty. […]
The Maine Green Independent Party has some exciting things to show on its front page this morning. Yesterday was the deadline for Green Party candidates to file their campaigns to run for Congress. Maine has three seats in Congress in play for this year’s election – one U.S. Senate seat and two seats in the […]
This weekend’s big story has been the escalating conflict between Russia and the Ukraine. (What’s up with the muted reaction to the Optic Nerve story?)
