    Not if you make the cost of living so high few people can live well. You really over estimate people's wants. Young people will spend 8 dollars for a cup of coffee. Take away that ability and you Greens are going away.

    Every time a conservative makes one of these "WAAAA! I HATE YOU LIBERALS! MOMMY, MAKE THE MEAN LIBERALS STOP HUMILIATING ME!" threads, an angel gets his wings. So many new angels these days.

    In their current state I would agree, but that could change.

    Thanks Chloe it sounds like you should get involved at the local level. I see Constitutional problems for the Greens at the federal level but NOT at the state level. You have the right idea, instead of just encouraging people to do the right thing for a planet that will benefit after they are long dead say: "What do you want YOUR children eating" Factory farm food or local produce? Do you want your kids to have to leave the area when they grow up or do you support a strong, independent local economy? MEN readership consist of more conservatives and more liberals than the general population for those reasons.

    Maybe when they are parents and realize what factory farm food really is they will step up where we did not. Perhaps the same with a federal governmment that deals with other nations and then gets out of the way.

    Right , left or middle. What do you want your kids to eat? Do you believe in strong local economies? If so then we need new cons and new libs.
