Jack Beatty Scapegoats Greens - Why?

Jack Beatty Scapegoated Greens As Spoilers, When Non-Voters Decided Elections. August 10th, WBUR, ‘On Point’ “...But if I may just let me just divergate to looking at the role of the Green Party in this…The nefarious role of this party in our politics can’t be understated. I say one word alone: Ralph Nader. But then, 2016 – the role of the Jill Stein campaign …The Green Party has a lot to answer for... I’m just pointing to the facts, and to the, sort of, aura of suspicion around the Jill Stein campaign in 2016.“ Jack Beatty (8) Year Green Candidate Ratio: Non-voters to Green Voters Citation 2000 Nader 31+ to 1 (1,2) 2004 Nader 193+ to 1 (3,4) 2016 Stein 36+ to 1 (5,6) Jack’s wrong conclusion: Blame the Greens.

Yes on Question 1

The Green-Rainbow Party endorses a vote of YES on Question 1 and also calls for even greater protections for health care workers and patients than the ballot question provides.

GRP Comments on Question 2

The Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts takes no position on whether to vote YES or NO, or abstain from voting on statewide ballot Question 2. While we do not take a specific position on this Question, we would like to offer our concerns… First, let us make it clear that the Green-Rainbow Party is very much in favor of legally establishing that corporations are not people, that money is not speech, and regulating donations to, and spending on, electoral campaigns.

Yes on Question 3

The Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts supports a vote of YES on statewide ballot Question 3 to uphold the 2016 law forbidding discrimination based on gender identity in places of public accommodation. The Green Party Platform Section II (A) (5) recognizes “the rights of persons who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, intersex, trans-sexual, queer, or transgender” to be free from discrimination in “all areas of life.” Our history of being the first national political party to oppose discrimination based on gender identity stems from the Green Party’s Key Values of ‘Social Justice’ and ‘Respect for Diversity’.

Stamas Campaign Warns of Conflict of Interest in Bump's Office

The Stamas Campaign has expressed grave concerns about conflicts of interest in incumbent auditor Suzanne Bump’s office. Green-Rainbow Party candidate for auditor, Edward (Jed) Stamas says, “Massachusetts law requires every agency to be audited once every three years, including all government contractors.

This represents a clear conflict of interest and neglect of the duties of the auditor’s office.”  Continue reading

The Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts condemns President Trump’s latest travel ban

The Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts condemns President Trump’s latest travel ban, which continues to single out poor Muslim countries and other targets of US aggression. The Supreme Court has made a mockery of justice by accepting the administration’s argument that this policy is motivated by national security concerns. Blanket travel bans and international isolation do not make us safe. Continue reading
