In 2014, 5th district voters in Illinois will have a chance to register their disgust with the seizure of power by the spies at the NSA, thanks to Green Party congressional candidate Nancy Wade. [...]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times.

[...]

Does a rally in Illinois with Green Party candidates indicate Dennis Kucinich will run for President in 2012 as a Green? For this kind of Democratic-Green coalition to hold a political rally against President Obama’s health care policies in Obama’s own home state seems like a sign that it would be foolish for the machine Democrats of Illinois to ignore. [...]
Despite his campaign promise, since he’s entered Congress, Mike Quigley has done nothing at all to support legislation to reform or overturn the Military Commissions Act. Quigley hasn’t been able to follow through. Green Party candidate Matt Reichel becomes a much more attractive candidate as Quigley loses progressive voters’ trust. [...]
Why, the plaintive tone in to-be-Senator Roland Burris‘ voice comes right off the page when you read of his November 2008 phone call to Governor Rod Blagojevich’s brother: “Tell Rod to keep me in mind for that seat, would ya?…. I know I could give him a check myself.”
How embarrassing. But I have to [...]
