Greens, your party has failed you. No mention of The Progressive Alliance Strategy or winning with a possible plurality progressive/libertarian vote or coordinating Green and Libertarian downticket ballots that I have heard of at the convention. McKinney/Clemente and Barr/Root will get about 1%, Nader/Gonzales about 2%. Democratic progressive women will not vote Green women because of the wasted vote” phenomenon and the tremendous pressure to vote either democrat or republican “lesser of 2 evils” major party loyalty and Reagan democrats will vote Republican or not vote at all. & Of course Republican women will not vote Green women. McKinney/Clemente is too leftist & female for libertarians to vote for them & Barr/Root is too rightist. Nader/Gonzales is too leftist also. What is needed is a Green/Libertarian m/f ticket that most progressives & libertarians can relate to & support in one way or another so as to not split the inclusive vote. Now that the third parties have selected their tickets none of which are fusion, the only other winning ticket possibility would be an Independent fusion with sufficient ballot access. This will not be easy at this late date but I am willing to try. I need campaign support so go to http://www.robertmilnes.net & click Make a Donation. From there go to http://www.robertmilnes4president2008 & click Volunteer. I need a movement hosted website & computer assistance. I need a woman libertarian to complement the ticket. If you are one or know of one, please contact me. I need for Indians to help me get on as many ballots as possible especially in Oklahoma which expires July 15. Hopefully they will see that my positions are most favorable towards them. I can promise to pay premium wage for ballot signatures if I get enough campaign donations for that. I look forward to your support and to further campaigning as much as I am able.
