Green Party Candidate Chris Lugo Condemns Torture Bill


Chris LugoNashville, TN: On the day after sixteen activists were arrested on the front steps of the White House, Green Party of Tennessee Candidate for US Senate Chris Lugo called for Tennesseans to condemn the Military Commissions Act (S. 3930) and to take immediate steps to declare the bill unconstitutional by petitioning their elected legislators and voting for candidates who will not vote for torture. “Today marks a grave day in American history,” Lugo declared, “Historians will look back at this time and say that today was the day the President suspended the constitution of the United States of America.” «Read the rest of this article»

US Citizenship Sale: 4 years military service


The Department of DefenseI don’t think the United States should bribe immigrants to fight wars in exchange for citizenship.  If the US does not have citizens willing to sign up for our wars, there are much bigger problems.  We already successfully bribe young Americans who are poor with the opportunity to pursue a college education. 

A Washington Post article disagrees. A Military Path to Citizenship, By Max Boot and Michael O’Hanlon, Thursday, October 19, 2006; Page A29

Does anybody really think a fence (costing $ billions) will stop illegal immigration?

“Now is the time to consider a new chapter in the annals of American immigration. By inviting foreigners to join the U.S. armed forces in exchange for a promise of citizenship after a four-year tour of duty, we could continue to attract some of the world’s most enterprising, selfless and talented individuals. We could provide a new path toward assimilation for undocumented immigrants who are already here but lack the prerequisite for enlistment — a green card. And we could solve the No. 1 problem facing the Army and Marine Corps: the fact that these services need to grow to meet current commitments yet cannot easily do so (absent a draft) given the current recruiting environment.”

This time he takes on the GOP’s newest fearmongering ad which quotes Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri superimposed over pictures of explosions with the sound of a ticking bomb in the background. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s topped off with the cryptic message echoing LBJ’s 1964 “Daisy” ad that ran just once: These are the stakes. «Read the rest of this article»
