Went with a group into Fannie Mae to ask them to bargain in good faith to keep homeowners in their home".

Five us were arrested. We had made the decision that we were going to go to the mat for these homeowners.

Rob: How do you feel about having been arrested?

       It should be a required experience for people running for office.

Rob: What was enlightening about it?

Rob: Would you do it again?

"The politics of fear has brought us everything we were afraid of.

Rob: What do you think of the idea of de-billionairizing the US?

Rob: Was your arrest connected with Occupy Wall street and what's your take on the impact of the Occupy Wall Street movement on the future of America?

Rob: Your Platform is called the Green New Deal. 

"the core of the green new deal is creating jobs." 

Rob: That sounds bottom up. 

Rob: Talk about the green party overall and bottom up connection.

"If there's one thing that characterizes the greens is we take the big picture to heart."

Rob: Are there any green party elected officials in the USA?

Rob: Why you instead of Democratic or Republican candidates? Are you the next Ralph Nader, as people have accused him of killing the election for Al Gore?

Rob: People are saying that they have to vote for the lesser of two evils-- what do you have to say about that?

Why should people vote for you over Rocky Anderson?

Why are your running, given that there is no chance you can win?

What can listeners and readers who want to support third party politics do?

Who are you? 

What skills do you bring to the presidency?  

I've tried to ask you questions that are devils advocate questions-- to allow you to answer objections people have to voting for third party or green party. Are there other objections that you'd like to respond to?

-Supreme court"

-need for both political and activist flanks.

-people who have been "battered" politically.


"I try to read it every chance I get. It's bold, uncompromising truth telling.  And this is what we depend on for the real news. Thank you so much for your incredible serviceThis is what Democracy looks like and cannot survive without."
