Green as Middle-Independent Party? "We are fiscal conservatives" - PlattSubmitted by jaktober on Tue, 04/09/2013 - 00:41
Put this article together covering two Green candidates that are taking a more middle of the road platform in both Democrat and Republican strongholds.
As a Green, I promote many "libertarian" leaning policies. While I support public banking I also support legalizing Gold and Silver as legal tender. There are many other Greens that just want a public option for health-care, the environment protected and your standard civil society; schools, roads, buses, trains, libraries, parks. Aside from that, we want small government.
Could the Green Party become a middle-independent party? Would it be better for "Libertarians" to work within all three parties rather than forming their own party? Isn't the point to promote Libertarian principles, not a Party?
