As a political party, Greens can not allow that loss for an alternative explanation stand. There needs to be an answer to that question if Greens are to have a chance with a national candidate. Lacking that answer, there will be no electoral success.
If anyone believes that this is not very serious. then they need to read the Bloomberg News investigative report on the Koch Brothers, David and Charles, and the privately held corporation that funds so much of the Tea Party efforts.
For six decades around the world, Koch Industries has blazed a path to riches — in part, by making illicit payments to win contracts, trading with a terrorist state, fixing prices, neglecting safety and ignoring environmental regulations. At the same time, Charles and David Koch have promoted a form of government that interferes less with company actions.That is about as blunt as one can get. So every time you hear a Congressman talk about ending excessive regulation, or gutting the EPA, you are experiencing the effect of Koch power. Knowing that, what are the alternative for Greens? As a political party, Greens do not have a single answer to that question? There is no economic theory that sets Greens apart from the others.
Perhaps the only thing we can agree on is that we need to put an end to Corporate Personhood. Most Greens support Move to Amend with varying degrees of enthusiasm. If that is the single alternative idea that we have, then we need to get Tea Party Angry that this fiction is still allowed.
