Green Party candidate needed! [13 Jan 2005|04:35pm]

[ mood | excited ]

We're looking for a candidate in the Allentown area to run for Charlie Dent's old State Senate seat (the 16th district), the election for which will be held April 5. Since we are an official party with the state, we don't need to collect signatures for special election candidates, all we have to do is select one. if you know anyone who would like to run, let me know so we can run somebody. If we get a candidate who is particularly motivated, we could have a VERY strong showing (as few people vote in special elections) and hell, maybe we could win it. Lemme know. :)

Greens vs. Libertarians... [05 Sep 2004|12:10pm]

Looking for a real debate, not the canned script we'll be getting between Kerry and Bush?

Green Party candidate David Cobb and Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik's debate will be aired on Monday at 1 PM on C-SPAN.

CLARION CALL TO ACTION [22 Aug 2004|11:22pm]

Okay everyone, this one's important.

    Green Party Congressional candidate Dorothy Shieber is running in the 6th District here in PA. Well, she's trying to. To get on the ballot, Dorothy had to collect ~1000 signatures. She collected over 4000. But, the Democrat candidate (who decided to run AFTER Dorothy!), Lois Murphy, is having the signatures challenged in court, in order to keep her off the ballot. Dorothy is a 63-year-old low income grandmother, who is running a campaign with almost no money. The lawyers can keep this challenge in court until after the election, so it's critical we stop the pending lawsuit now!

So why is Lois Murphy afraid of Dorothy Shieber and the Green Party?
    Murphy has the money and the political bosses, but Dorothy Shieber has the ideas and the creativity. Shieber stands for clean money politics, health care as a right, civil rights for everyone and an open and vibrant democracy. No wonder Murphy wants Shieber off the ballot. There's no way she can compete with Dorothy Shieber's ideas.

Here's what I want each and every one of you to do. It'll take like 60 seconds.

    -> Call up Lois Murphy's campaign office at 610-917-8400 and tell whoever is there that Lois should have the case dropped. Don't buy any business about "she isn't the one filing" or "I don't know what you're talking about". Make sure they get the message that these kinds of lawsuits have no place in a democracy, and that if Murphy wanted the lawsuit stopped, it would be.

    Please do this, everyone. Seriously, it'll take 60 seconds (you don't even have to live in PA!). And tell your friends to as well. We're making a big push for this tomorrow (Monday) but we'll need calls all this week. If you can, post a comment once you've made the call. Thanks a million, LJ buddies.

Welcome! [11 Jul 2004|01:46am]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Now may not be the time or the place to vote for a third-party presidental candidate. It's too important to eradicate the Bush/Cheney reign. But that doesn't mean the grassroots revolution can't continue.

This community is just beginning and will remain largely unmoderated, unless problems happen. Spread the word, and the link, to other local liberals you know.
