How interesting that Gerald Kamin's letter (Oct. 11) was printed the day

after the vote by Democrats and Republicans alike to grant President Bush

the unconstitutional power to launch a preemptive strike against Iraq.

When he blames Greens for Bush, Kamin doesn't seem to remember that

thousands of African Americans were illegally purged from the voter rolls

in Florida and that Al Gore did not even inspire his own state of

Tennessee to vote for him.

 

Regarding Sen. Paul Wellstone: Ralph Nader, Winona LaDuke, I and many

Greens I know are ardent supporters of Wellstone. But we are a political

party. We will run candidates. In the last two years the Green Party is

the only national political party in the U.S. to gain registered members.

And 152 Greens hold local office throughout the U.S.

Brain Behind the Secession Drive

The Los Angeles Times; Los Angeles, Calif.; Jul 27, 2002;

 

Sub Title:  [HOME EDITION]

Start Page:  B.22

ISSN:  04583035

Abstract:

The Times does it again--with yet another in a series of incredibly

slanted anti-secession pieces, this one camouflaged as a bio on Jeff Brain

(July 22). Brain didn't pay his taxes, accidentally registered for the

wrong party and voted at his office instead of his home. Shocking! There

may even be rumors that he has, on occasion, changed lanes without

signaling. But I'll leave that for tomorrow's California section.

How about dealing with the facts instead of disparaging the poor guy, whom

you have already ripped apart in previous articles? I want to know if a

smaller city is a better city. Can one councilperson adequately represent

250,000 people? Can a leader be in contact with a quarter-million people

and not be swayed by special interests and developers? Or will cutting the

size of the city by half make things better, as they are in Santa Monica,

Burbank or Glendale? These are the questions and answers you should be

offering your readers. Leave the rest to the tabloids.
