Green Party Getting the Anti-Fed Message, Is an Alliance Possible?

by James_Madison_Lives

It was sometime in 2011 when Michael Tracey for the American
Conservative caught up with Ralph Nader, recent Green Party
presidential candidate, and talked about a progressive - Ron Paul
alliance. He asked Nader, if progressives are in favor of expanding
the welfare state, how well can they really get along with folks who
go around quoting the likes of Hayek and Rothbard?

"That's strategic sabotage," Nader responds, sharply. "It's an intellectual indulgence....If
they're on your side, and you don't compromise your positions,
what do you care who they quote?"..."Ron Paul has always been
anti-corporate, anti-Federal Reserve, anti-big banks,
anti-bailouts," Nader says. "I mean, they view him in the same
way they view me on a lot of these issues."

Now the Green Party of DC, one of the nation's most active and worth
getting in touch with, is promoting a talk Tuesday by Ellen Brown,
author of The Web of Debt, The Shocking Truth About Our Money System
and How to Break Free. With the banksters on the run around the
world and keeping a sharp eye on things going south for them in
America, is this a time for local Paulers to reach out to local
Green chapters and agree to agree on one thing, and disagree about
the rest?

If Paulers and Greens begin issuing joint statements at the local
level calling for the arrest of the banksters, as Iceland has done,
the effect could be like a shot heard around the world.

Web of Debt and Public Banking

Busboys and Poets, 14th
6:00-8:-00 PM
Tuesday, December 4th

Are you looking for ways to break free of the stranglehold
Wall Street has over our lives and communities? One important
step is to create public banks to serve the public good and
stop enriching Wall Street banks. Come and join in discussion
with Ellen Brown and Marc Armstrong, the leaders of the
national movement for public banks, to learn about the history
and real workings of our modern money system and the role
public banks can play in changing the system.

Ellen Brown, author of the highly acclaimed book The Web of
Debt, The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How to
Break Free, lays out the deception of our private money system
and how we got to where we are today, presents a clear picture
of the financial abyss toward which we are heading, and points
to examples from around the world that have worked better than
our current system, including in colonial Pennsylvania.

Marc Armstrong, Director of the Public Banking Institute, will
talk about current campaigns to create public banks, including
the campaign here in DC

Alliance, no.

They can study Liberty, Freedom, our Republic. Then, individuals can join us, just as I and others have. A basic alliance would be to compromise/sacrifice principles, I am not supportive of that.

This nation has deteriorated because of alliances, compromise, slowly over the decades.

I do not imply that we should not embrace others when credit is due. They may, such as in McKinney's case, promote some of the things that we do. In McKinney's case, for example, she promotes sovereignty of nations, end illegal wars, opposes drones and crimes of humanity, etc. We should congratulate her, work with her and promote those initiatives. But to form a political alliance with the 'party' would not be in the interest of us, our Republic, or Liberty around the world. The same goes for Kucinich, as much as I do like and respect him.

They may be an ally in

They may be an ally in seeking audit and even abolition of the Federal Reserve, but drop 'em before the reform options are laid out on the table.... Green party will want government monopoly of money creation and banking as opposed to government protected, private monopoly of money creation (the current system).... Big government and inflation would just continue.

You know nothing about the Ron Paul Message

Money creation is a proper function of the US government, not private bankers. The system you are advocating perfectly describes the Federal Reserve. Ron Paul wants the Treasury to print and control money, as the Constitution requires.

Release the Sandy Hook video.


Was/is the official of the communist church.


May I recommend that you read

Behind the Green Mask, written by Rose Koire.
It is a brilliant book, and it makes you realise that the Greens are not your friend.
The Greens are deeply in bed with the Neocons, and are a tool of UN Agenda 21.
The modern day Communists.

Hmm, the faster trollish comments appear

to attack an idea the more likely that idea is to threaten the powers that be.

Thank you for indicating to us that we are on the right track, hasbarat. Let's get in touch with the Greens, folks. The banksters and their hasbarat stooges cannot possibly like this idea.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Jill is absolutely right on this.

And from your quick accusation and aggressive tone, I'd say YOU are the one who most likely fits the hasbarat troll profile.
