Fewer Posts on Blogs Until Filing Period Passes

The Commons Party is busily trying to get Mark Greene on the ballot for Congress in the 9th Congressional District, with signatures, between now and mid-May, the filing period for candidates for just about all offices in Washington state.  Not only that, but still trying to push one of the handful of GMO labeling initiatives or propositions in the country, through Initiative 1338.  Therefore, there is not a lot of time to write on these blogs, so the posts on Commoner and our other blogs will be sporadic, at best, until mid-May. 

We don't even have time to worry about what Rep. Adam Smith is doing between now and then, though we are doing are best to keep abreast of how he's mishandling the affairs of our nation, such as making sure that the N.S.A. has an even stronger boot on the necks of law-abiding citizens going about their lawful activities, or trying to undercut the pensions of U.S. Armed Forces veterans.  If Smith wants to balance the budget, he should try to stop tax subsidies to fabulously rich corporations and raises taxes on the nation's oligarchy instead of picking on veterans.

Just a short little post until we can really begin writing, again: when Mark Greene becomes an official candidate for the United States Congress.

Congressman Adam Smith's voting record is like a dream to
non-constitutionalists.   Smith has voted for the following (pretty much not in accordance with his district):

  • the national defense authorization act proviso that ends Habeas Corpus (judicial review for persons who are jailed), even for American citizens, though clearly unconstitutional.
  • the 2002 Iraq War resolution.
  • Gramm, Leach, Bliley Act (the law that effectively dismantled the Glass-Steagall Act).
  • Wall Street bail-outs.
  • nuclear energy deal with India (effectively dismisses safeguards for the Nuclear Anti-Proliferation Treaty).
  • the 2001 Patriot Act and 2011 Patriot Extension Act, acts that are overbroad and have enabled the N.S.A.'s (and other agencies) overreaching, out-of-control surveillance of law-abiding American citizens. 

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2013 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Please, ask these journalists to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. For more information: see 2/26/13 post entitled "Major Election Irregularities (Graph & Essay). Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons, by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended) to Mark Greene's Party of Commons or $10 to the U.S. Representative Campaign that will be on the ballot in 2014 (to Mark Greene for Congress); for either address, write to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009.

Thank you!
