Oh, Denis... you might join forces with the Greens if they want to help decriminalize pot, and they do.

or how about anti-imperialism?

Heh, I give him a good working-over on that one every so often.  I think he is coming along... but how could those evil socialists have ever been right about something?  ;D

This is the same Greens that Bill has in the past said were defunct, etc.

Talk talk talk.  Oh how I wish Bill would DO instead of talk.  Hell would freeze over.

I did say they were defunct as a political party and the reason why was because of the minority status of the Democrat Party in the state but now that their fortunes seemed to be changing maybe people will feel it is the appropriate time to begin anew...kinda the reason why the LP fortunes in the past were so much better than they appear to be now.

Good. Please dear god, let the Greens split from the Dems in NH.
That will both:
1) suck the more radical communists out of the Dem party, making them much more reasonable to work with on the "good" issues (like the one Rocketman mentioned)
2) weaken the party overall, by factions and splits

I hope the inverse is obvious to everyone about Republicans and LP'ers.

No offence, Sandy. I love your work.

It Depends, the 2004 Green guy running for Prez wanted to let individuals smoke pot bought that anyone that sells it should go to jail.  The Green running for Senate in 2006 in TN wanted to allow individuals to grow it, but not sell it.  However, 100,000s of people in NH want to decriminalize pot and a bet a few of them are Green.

Interestingly in Canada the Green Party is to the right of the Socialist Party. So in a proportional representative system the "communists" would have a home. It is only because of our winner take all, single district system that socialists have flooded into the Greens as the only viable alternative to the Democrat Party.

That's probably true, but it's worth pointing out that Canada actually has the same legislative electoral system as the U.S. (single member district plurality).

Yes, and believe it or not there is a small Socialist Party here too with 1600 members!

http://sp-usa.org/

Their candidate Walt Brown earn more votes than any of the Party's presidential candidates since 1952 with just 10,837 votes as opposed to their highest total in 1912 when Eugene Debs earned 6% of the popular vote representing almost 1 million votes.
