Rafting Down America’s Real Mainstream

by Sam Smith

I helped to start the national Green Party some years back because I was looking for a political organization in the American mainstream with which I could feel comfortable. I wanted to get out of the Democratic Party because I thought I might become liable under the racketeering statutes. I didn’t want anything to do with parties that went around invading countries and killing people in the name of freedom. I certainly didn’t want to find myself called before some war crime tribunal. And I wanted nothing to do with an economics based on the cruel notion that what was best for one’s campaign contributors was also best for the country. Or people who treated nature like it was Kleenex <more>
