Political Opinion
By Frank Ellsworth Lockwood

Some people have been pushing the notion that if you are a member of the Green Party you should vote for a Democratic, but there is another side to this argument. If you are a Green, then you are no more a Democrat than a Republican is.
Green is for things that the Red and Blue oppose: While Green Party is for peaceful coexistence, Republicans and Democrats have supported wars-for-profit for all of my life. (I am 75; they will not be changing any time soon.)

Green is for live and let live, while Red and Blue are about greed and conniving, and this is no exaggeration when both of the above have always supported the overthrow of democratically elected socialist governments, replacing them with puppet governments, dictators and tyrants who practiced suppression-for-profit.

Green is for racial and economic equality as well as for recognition of tribal rights. Our 2016 Presidential candidate, Jill …

But then the sham was lifted because the breakup of the Soviet Union turned Russia into a capitalist dog-fight. So now, some US war lovers are trying to play it both ways, convincing people that Russia, the great empire, is set on gobbling up other nations. The narrative may have convinced a lot of people. I am not convinced, however. Yes, it is true that, although the great Soviet Union no longer exists, Russia still has more land mass than the USA, and surely that must stick in the craw of some US nationalists.

It seems worth thinking about the fact that various groups have been advocating a similar collapse of the American federation, splitting th…

Green Semantics: Understanding the American feudal system

Forget the “Deep State,” or “Oligarchy" because we are now in a feudal system: The rules may have changed Opinion by Frank Ellsworth Lockwood

Look under America's hood, and you will find a feudal system. Comments by various Greens has convinced me that many of them may misunderstand the nature of what they sometimes call “the oligarchy” or “the deep state,” when they speak of it as one thing rather than many things interacting.
