Green is for growth. Life in the real world grows, or it ends. Human beings grow. Animals grow, plants grow. The planet itself, though, doesn't live, and it doesn't grow.

Only the speed and pain of the dying are in question.
We're currently seeing the orchestrated deconstruction of the most human-friendly culture in history. America as an earth-worshipping communist state (the inevitable result of implementing the progressive vision) would be as hostile to humanity as would be our transformation to an Islamic state: only the names of the gods and the tools of their tyranny would differ.
Our nation has gone too far down the path toward insolvency and communism to pretend that we simply need a minor course correction to right the ship of state.

We need Americans to turn from the empty promises of secular humanism that energize our arrogant elite and re-dedicate ourselves to human liberty.
This time around, it's not enough to simply assert the bumper-sticker wisdom of "Get US out of the UN!" or "End the EPA!"
