Notes from The Green Party of Alaska’s September general meeting

The meeting began with discussion over The GPAK breaking ranks with the national party when we nominated Jesse Ventura as our presidential nominee. We have been threatened by people in The Hawkins Campaign saying we’d lose accreditation with the national party and we simply do not care. We have had little to no relationship with the nation party and being recognized by them or not changes nothing with what we’ve been doing or what we have planned. Officers in our party have had talks and dealings with The Hawkins Campaign and we simply could not deal with their terrible behavior and their intimidation tactics. Bowing down towards bad actors like that simply goes against The Alaskan Spirit and instead we nominated Jesse Ventura who better represents what Alaskans want from their government. With the Hawkins people taking over the national party we feel it may be necessary to form a new coalition within The Green Party. Several state parties have expressed interest in leaving the national party as well.

People who claim to be the founders of the environmental movement have blamed The Green Party for this nation’s failure to fight climate devastation and we find that absolutely ridicules! These people have been involved far longer in the movement than we have with probably a higher profile than us and where is the country now? We feel this is more “vote blue no matter who” nonsense and they’re making a bad faith argument. Instead of voter shaming these people should push The Democratic Party toward good climate policy but as we seen in the recent presidential debate Joe Biden can’t even be bothered to support The Green New Deal. The truth is The Greens are interested in results and that means either pushing one of the two major parties towards good policy or even winning elections ourselves.

The GPAK believes in community empowerment with us becoming independent by growing our own food and recycling and reusing our waste. While so far Alaska has been mostly isolated from the chaos happening in The Lower 48 States becoming more independent would help us in doing that more so. A long winter is coming where The Federal Government is going to become weak, less effective and we need to do what we can to make sure we can take care of ourselves. And seeing this as a top goal of The GPAK we were happy to nominate Jesse Ventura as our presidential nominee. Governor Ventura truly believes in a government that leaves the population alone to live their best lives that they can. Governor Ventura and we believe you have the right to own a gun, worship any god, love and marry who you want and be who you are as long as you don’t hurt others without government interference.

The next scheduled general meeting is October 6th at 6:00 PM.
