QUOTE OF THE EPOCH

Green Party Rising.
Greens mean business. And that means an end to the two-party duopolistic lock-out on power! But the evil two aren't going to give up their power voluntarily. And THAT...... THAT means Revolution!

"Greens mean business."

You got that shit right. They're all a bunch of liberal reformists who still see Capitalism as essential to human happiness.

"They're all a bunch of liberal reformists who still see Capitalism as essential to human happiness."

Now, now. Tsk. I suppose it's true that I've come to accept that politics involves compromises, since personally I think the Protestant work ethic is the root of all evil, but that may not exactly become the party platform. I also suppose that I can think of people putting in plenty of sweat to get or defend jobs that no one in their right mind would want anyway, but if I really though the way you describe, I probably wouldn't have anything against just being sucked completely into one of the big parties, would I? :-)
