When Peace and
Freedom lost ballot status the first time they fought it. They
needed their ballot status as an organizing tool. They went
around and collected thousands of voter registration forms with
their name on it and used them to get their numbers back up with
a voter registration drive. Americans Elect was never that
visible on the streets. I think they got on the ballot via paid
signature gatherers. Taking them off the ballot is almost a
matter of cleaning off a confusion factor. I've not heard about
Americans Elect doing anything to fight being knocked off the
ballot, but if they do likely I'll mention it in a future
comment like this one.
My hope for the
Green Party isn't in candidates. I've found that we didn't get
enough attention to really make much difference that way. It's
at the local level. When somebody registers Green Party, they're
saying "I'm done with waiting for the two party system to solve
every problem." When you stop voting for oil companies at the
gas pump, the money you save is change we can believe in. When
you register Green the other parties will have to realize
they'll need to be better than nothing to get your vote. I'm
registered Green. Many times I've told someone else, "the best
thing about the Green Party isn't the leadership, it's the
membership." It's thin soup, but contrast that with being an
accomplice to war crimes, which is the message I get when I find
out someone is either a Republican or a Democrat. That's not
soup, that's swill!
Killswitch is a
great movie about network neutrality. It features stirring
interviews with such pundits as Lawrence Lessig, and more about
Aaron Schwartz than I'd head anywhere else. The general message
was that "Network Neutrality is a good thing, but we're not
going to keep it unless we fight for it." The movie was followed
by a Q&A with the Director. In it he promised that sooner or
later "Killswitch will be available for free on the internet."
Between now and then it will likely go through a limited
theatrical release. I'd say see it if you get the chance.
