Why Green-Rainbow in 2017

People need a reason to join us. Issues can define a platform to run. The Party should define some examples of how the Party is different.

We have heard "To the Victor goes the Spoils." This is not true. Rutan v. Republican Party of Illinois, 497 U.S. 62 (1990), was a United States Supreme Court decision that held that the First Amendment forbids a government entity from basing its decision to promote, transfer, recall, or hire low-level public employees based upon their party affiliation. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutan_v._Republican_Party_of_Illinois] House bill 2579 [https://malegislature.gov/Bills/190/H2579] is an attempt to add this protection to state law.

The power of the state is used to take people's land for Gas Pipelines. For inter-state pipelines, it is possible that Federal Law could be used. House Bill 2702 [https://malegislature.gov/Bills/190/H2707] attempts to remove this misuse of state power.

The Party should pick some issues to make an impact.
