Green Party Getting the Anti-Fed Message, Is an Alliance Possible?Submitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 18:02
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
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.

Busboys and Poets, 14th
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
