ML: NEXT, Part II–Green voices need to be louder & clearer on economic issues

With exit polling (unsurprisingly) showing the economy as the primary concern for many voters, I am left to ruminate on how a MAJOR opportunity to give voice to the Green Party’s superiority to the corporate parties was largely lost for us in the last few weeks.  The Greens are the only PARTY with the will and infrastructure (i.e. NATIONALLY viable party) to ACT on the common person’s concerns about corporate dominance of the economic policy in the United States (due credit to Libertarians here, as well), yet our Party’s position on economics remains largely vague.  Cynthia McKinney articulated a 17 point plan in response to the “credit crisis,” but given the media white out, it was too little too late to identify the Green Party as the leader in the desperately needed economic reform movement, as we are increasingly being recognized internationally as the leader in (our pillar of) ecological wisdom.

It is vital that Greens seize this mantle–not slowly as we continue to expand our national reach and build our body of office holders–but quickly with an intense re-examination of how we can Green the economy with what we have.  Doing so is both for the good that Greens can do for the nation and for the good being identified as the forerunner of a new economics can do for the slow expansion of the Party here in the US.  But how do we approach this in the future?  

This is an important discussion that we must not let pass us by as we eagerly decry the corporate forces that continue to bury progressive approaches to our increasingly pressing needs.
