Well, SURPRISE! The Green Party nominated Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala for our Presidential ticket 2012. This, like all Green Conventions, was not without controversy. At one point I found myself “staff/body guard” for a young Islamic woman who dared to speak out for Roseanne Barr (much, much more on that story later.) I stepped away when her two anarchist female body guards stepped back in. Boy, oh, boy am I having fun!!!
Anyhow here are some great quotes from today, then off to the evening fundraiser.
“We are now the electoral arm for a movement. The Occupy Movement!”
“Unrestricted growth is the ideology of a cancer cell.”
“It’s not the Ruling Class, it’s the Looting Class.”
“The abolitionists were called spoilers. It is a great thing to spoil a corporate duopoly. And remember you can’t spoil something that’s already rotten.”
“Forward through the decay.”
“We are laying the foundation for the next great transformation.”
