    I'm a registered Republican so I can vote in the NH primaries (which as you know are a very big deal). I would like to vote Libertarian across the board but surprisingly, we don't have a lot of Libertarian candidates on our ballots in any given election. We do have some Free Staters running for state offices and I do vote for them when they are on my ballot.

    Not registered with a political party since Virginia doesn't do that.

    I could've swore you were from Virginia for some reason. My memory must be off.

    Not registered, but vote for Libertarian candidates whenever possible.

    Not only that, but the section you quoted is contradicted in other portions of the Green platform. They are all over the map.

    No different than your cherrypicking. Besides, if you are for restoring the constitution and protecting civil liberties you are not "authoritarian." Doesn't matter how many poor people you try to feed or how many kids you give a good education. You are using a buzzword you have given no contexual meaning to provoke an emotional response.

    Since the beginning of what we call civilization, when men's dominance over women was firmly established, until the present day, our history has been marred with oppression of and brutality to women. The Green Party deplores this system of male domination, known as patriarchy, in all its forms, both subtle and overt from oppression, inequality, and discrimination to all forms of violence against women and girls including rape, trafficking, forced sex which is also rape, slavery, prostitution and violence against women within marriage and relationships and in all institutions. The change the world is crying for cannot occur unless women's voices are heard. Democracy cannot work without equality for women, which provides equal participation and representation. It took an extraordinary and ongoing fight over 72 years for women to win the right to vote. However, the Equal Rights Amendment, first introduced in 1923, has still not been ratified by 2010, representing a continuous struggle of 87 years with no victory in sight.
    As soon as I read the word patriarchy I found myself fighting against the urge to stop reading. I just knew everything that followed was going to be bull****.

    More so called libertarian green party politics, Telekat:

    1. Make "pollution prevention" the preferred strategy for dealing with environmental justice issues, through eliminating environmental threats before they occur and considering cumulative environmental impacts when evaluating risk.

    2. Uphold the precautionary principle, requiring polluters to bear the burden of proof in demonstrating the safety of their practices. Expand the application of the precautionary principle from chemicals and health to land use, waste, energy, food policy and local economic development.

    3. Expand the public trust doctrine, which holds that government's role is to protect the commons, to include the domains of public health and protection of the natural environment.

    4. Promote programs, policies, and legislation that build the capacity to identify disproportionate or discriminatory siting of polluting or toxic facilities. Assure non*discriminatory compliance with all environmental, health and safety laws to guarantee equal protection.

    5. Facilitate procedural justice, ensuring the public's right to know. Ensure rules and regulations are transparent to help communities employ their rights and participate in decision-making. Provide information in languages appropriate to the affected communities.

    6. Enforce corrective justice, ensuring the rights of commu*nities and local agencies to seek judicial redress. Communities and local agencies must not be required to show or prove "intent to discriminate" to achieve redress for problems of disproportionate and/or racist environmental impacts.

    7. Target precautionary and corrective justice actions and resources in communities with the highest concentrations of environmental hazards and in communities lacking socioeconomic resources.

    8. Support, enforce and strengthen the National Environmental Policy Act.

    I'm involved in trying to get the Justice Party organized at the State level in Wyoming, as my illness allows.

    "Decline to state" but have voted for members of both major parties and several of the "third" parties depending on issues, positions, and year.
