Well, I sorta have a Campaign Manager. A well-experienced person, in the election biz. His first question to me was, “are you running to win?” And, if so, “I can make it happen.”
Of that I have no doubt, especially as to potential.
But then I explained a lack of any budget and of Alberta Green members and volunteers. And things kinda descended into a practical reality from there. But he did not say he wouldn’t help.
His next question was, “why do you want to be a politician?” And I said that I did not want to be a politician. Like most everyone else I have little respect for politicians; mealy-mouthed, obsequious things, them.
“So why are you running,” says dubious Campaign Manager (dCM)? Well, says I, somebody has to step up to the plate and represent Greens. “Why,” says obnoxiously persistent dCM?
Greens are a movement to save the world and humanity from the crass exploitation of corporations and the immoral exercise of short-sighted power. We are an international force for good in a world desperately in need of new, respectful rules between peoples and cultures, and with the planet itself. Times are dire. The Green movement believes itself to be the template, worked out by Greens the world over, needed for positive social change and grounded governmental responsibility. If one loves this planet and the people upon it then being politically Green is all the change that is required of us.* We have to be the change we want to see.**
So why am I running? To do nothing less than save the world from itself and to bring peace and harmony among peoples. Green communities. Green cities. Green provinces. And Green nations. An integrated template suitable for solving virtually all of the world’s problems.
It is my job to expose more and more people to Green fundamental tenets and political actions. Hopefully, given a choice, as in this election, people will have the wisdom to vote Green making here in the present a bold, indelible mark for future generations.Route to the political web site:
