In Baden-Württemberg könnte state
elections in March would Greens accept coalition with Christian Democrat Union?
In Baden-Württemberg we are playing to get elected, an election victory. Our lead candidte Winfried Kretschmann
should be the first Green Party Governor, an perhaps in a coalition with the SPD. A black Green coaltion won't work there.
Aren't your plans premature to have the SPD as Junior partner?
If we get more votes, naturally we will elect the Governor. Then the SPD must be willing to accept
a new role

Cameron Middle East visit 'morally obscene' says Green Party's Lucas
26 feb 11 @ 4:34 pm est
Caroline Lucas Green Party leader in British parliament and Alex Phillips, at Goldsmid election count
recent trip to the Middle East was "morally obscene", Green MP Caroline Lucas has claimed.
The Green Party
leader said Mr Cameron had travelled to the region accompanied by a "delegation of arms traders".
a third of businessmen accompanying the PM on his trip to Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman were from the defence or aerospace
She said that upon first seeing Mr Cameron in Egypt she believed he was there to "express solidarity
with the pro-democracy movement".
But she said her view changed when she realised that senior executives from
defence companies were amongst those participating in the visit.
She talked of the "horrifying reality that [David
Cameron] was there, in the Middle East, at a time of such violence and unrest with a delegation of arms traders to sell
"The blatant opportunism of this visit is morally obscene," she told party activists.

Caroline Lucas, "Green Party provides "real opposition"
Green Party leader Caroline Lucas has pledged Green Party support for a change in the voting
system, saying a switch to the Alternative Vote would be "liberating".
Lucas, who became the party's first MP last year, said moving away from first-past-the-post would "keep MPs on their
toes" and curb tactical voting.
The party has long argued for a different, proportional voting system.
Speaking later at the party's Spring conference, she said her party was the "real
opposition" to the coalition.

Ireland election Friday - Feb 25, 2011 Green Party re-election chances grow
Darcy Lonergan, 21, Green Party candidate in Cavan-Monaghan
24 feb 11 @ 10:58 pm est
1. Why would
any young person want to get into Irish politics at this point in time?
Its vital that the young get into politics
as soon as possible as the issues and policies passed by the government has a huge effect on our lives for example education.
We can’t trust others to put us first and hear our voices unless we have a voice in the Dáil. Also it is extremely
important that young women get into politics. Fifty-one per cent of those who vote are women, yet the highest percentage we
have ever reached in national politics is 13.9. This is unacceptable.
Why did you choose to run for the Green Party?
I am proud to be a Green Party candidate; the Green Party
has displayed all the qualities I would want in my government: honesty, integrity, courage, tenacity and an unflinching persistence
to stick to their principles no matter what the consequences. We have made hard, sometimes unpopular, decisions but we
made those decisions based on the main core of our existence: to hand over to the next generation a clean environment, filled
with natural resources and with respect for the people, animals and flora that inhabit it.

Central Florida Cities Join Together to Save Bullet Train

Officials in Lakeland, Tampa, Orlando form coalition to put project out to bid.
By John Chambliss, THE LEDGER, February 21, 2011
LAKELAND | High-speed rail remains alive, barely.
Supporters in Lakeland, Tampa and Orlando have come
together to form a coalition that could put the $2.4 billion project out to bid and ultimately could pick an operator to run
Lakeland commissioners voted, 6-0, on Monday to join the coalition by approving a proposal by City Attorney
Now, all they have to do is convince the governor to back it.
And he's shown little sign of giving in.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood set a Friday deadline to devise an alternative plan to create the Orlando-to-Tampa
"We would be the Boeing of the Southeast"
U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, who was a key leader in the Florida House 10 years
ago in the creation of the High Speed Rail Authority, said the rail line is still on the books in Florida statutes and can
be built without taxpayer money.
"I don't understand why the governor
didn't go through with requests for proposals to build the high-speed rail so he could see the strong commitment from the
private sector in building it," he said. "The reason the three cities are doing this is because they know they
can get it done without tax money."
He said the plan from the beginning
had been to issue bonds backed by the private developers. Ridership studies, he said, have shown that it will work.
"Not only that, but we would be the first state in the country to build high-speed
rail and bring thousands of jobs to the state. We would be the Boeing of the Southeast," he said referring to Boeing
Aircraft company, which has brought economic stability to the state of Washington.

I met several interested individuals at CPAC this past
few days. We discussed the difference between running for office (a full-fledged campaign, knocking on every door in the district,
maximizing media opportunities, debating the opponents, making public appearances etc.) and standing for office.
Standing for office has value even if you do not get as involved as you can due to job limitations, shortage
of time etc. At least the media does ask and usually allows you to publish your positions on your key issues. And you still
may have the opportunity to challenge the incumbent. But most important, you may be the only alternative on the ballot. No
one should be the only name on the General Election ballot. Unfortunately 35 - 67% of the time there was only one name on
the ballot - not what the framers had in mind for a vibrant republic.
So beside the 140 General
Assembly seats in 2011, there are numerous others that with more effort than money can get you elected: including Board of
Supervisor races in 95 counties; School Boards in 87 counties; Soil and Water Directors, and more.
Please consider the value of being a candidate. Any questions, doubts, suggestions or ideas, contact me anytime.
I've been on the ballot. I've made all the mistakes and can help you navigate through a positive experience.
