The national and regional elections of national governments (i.a. almost every democratic government not the USA) with a multiparty Parliament, flexible, powerful, but often problematic shifting coalitions of parties in parliament, and a supervising Prime Minister approved by the dominant coalition may have much to teach USA Greens, other US third  parties, and their election campaigns.

Remember one over-all goal of USA Greens if and when we succeed in winning more local, state, and at last some federal government offices, is to promote "proportional representation.  Proportional Representation would be a revised law-of-the-land, maybe requiring a state or federal constitutional amendment, maybe not, that lets all parties have at least some representation in the state legislatures and perhaps in the US Congress.  Proportional Representation thereby empowers and represents more of the USA's diverse points of view i n the US population. Proportional Representation may be as  close as the USA can get to a Parliamentary System of government without a  massive revision of the US Constitution.

Most Greens agree there has been a stifling 2+ centuries of overwhelmingly exclusive and pre-dominating two party politics. This is the infamous crony-capitalist funded Duopoly Party that emerged vividly in the 2000s where one could no longer tell a Democrat from a Republican.  And "Third Parties" with some rare exceptions over our history have been marginalized by the Duopoly into insignificance and irrelevance, except to their most avid activist members.

We Greens in the USA probably can "do better" if and when we understand both the pros and cons of Duopoly and Parliamentary governing history better.

If you want to be better prepared to argue why your issue or candidate is truly the better or best one, it may help to have some California political history and herstory "in your quiver" to outline why things are they way they are today.

California's Proposition 14 passed in the June 8, 2010, Primary election.

This web link category is intended to chronicle (list news stories) that feature the people and speeches, the self-promotions, and any "back-lashing against the GOP" statements that the Democratic Party people have used since the Nov. 6, 2012, General Election.  See also the Obama's Term 2 Strategy opinion article for more background information about why I (jgw) think the liberal and progressive Democrats think this is a smart strategy to enact in 2013 through 2016 and beyond, but was not wise in Obama's Term 1, 2009-2012.

In the first and second decades of the 21st Century the vast majority of Americans, especially those coming from much degenerated primary and secondary public education institutions in the USA, do not understand Basic Civics. This web link section if for links to civics "supplementary" online educational materials suitable for voting age teens and adults. As the category title suggests, it is also for links to ideas and opinions online speaking to how civics education and awareness can and should be improved in the near future and the longer-run.

Eventually most of the links to the books (hardbound and paper-back) and the eBooks listed here will go to free "open library" PDF copies of them and to other free and "open community commons" eBook file formats.

You can submit web links in this category to "OMG! WTF! and Ain't it awful!" news and commentary you have found elsewhere on the Internet.  There is a lot going on to complain about. But please add something useful for progressives to note in the target web page(s) in the "remarks" part of a web link setup during your submit-time. If you have some knowledge of books and scientific article composition (writing) and publication, your remarks might be 1-2 short paragraphs that summarize or "abstract" the target article(s).  If you have strong opinions or useful progressive ideas about the contents of the target web page(s) of 1+ of the links you submit, compose (write) an article and submit that to the appropriate article section, category, or if present, to a more appropriate sub-category of an article category.

The articles referred to by web links you submit to this Democracy Destroying Politics web link category and/or to the sub-categories, if any, of this category should accurately inform, progressively analyze, and summarize (if you can) in what ways the anti-democratic actions of others are destroying democracy as well as quality of life in California and in the USA.  If possible find and submit links to articles that also provide constructive progressive commentary about historic and recent political acts in [city,] state, national and international politics which have seriously weakened or destroyed small-d democracy. Reading (or listening or viewing) the target web page (of text, audio or video) should inform progressives in general and the GPCA membership in particular and be "nutritious food for though" for GP people to create effective strategies and tactics.  Please think about whether and how that "education" of your fellow Greens can take place with the web links you submit and choose wisely.

I (JGW, the CAGI web site admin) will soon add US states as sub-categories, but probably not counties within states.  I will provide on-request by email suitably named sub-categories of this web link "top-level" category to which you can submit and collect an increasing number of web links for a given [city, county,] state, the nation, other nations. Those with web links to suitably informative or insightful news or opinion-articles about a specific county, city or town will get an appropriately named sub-category on request by email.

If the numbers of links submitted gets "too large", I may ask the GPUS (gp.org) to consider importing the non-California links from this CAGI site to their site.

Since the mid 1980s a new kind of genetics based science has emerged which by 2014 has allowed predictions about what flora and fauna will better adapt to eco-systems affected by future climate changes. These are some of the web sites and videos that introduce the "lay public" to this research, these much larger issues than were ever addressable, researchable scientifically before, some of the findings of that research and some of the conclusions that affect "land managers" and land management world-wide now and in the short-run and longer-run future.

THESE TOPICS GO FAR BEYOND "MERE" GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GM's, GMO's) USED FOR FOOD FOR HUMANS.  But this 20+ years old new line of research potentially more intricately involves genetic modifications applied on a much larger scale of organism communities and small to very large eco-systems!

If the least violent weapon of the tyrant is spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt, the FUD factor, which divides and conquers the masses of the otherwise self-organizing, cooperating people by their fears, mistrust and confusion, then fueling class warfare is the epitome of FUD.

Whether it is by improvements to the national Health Care Reform Act of March 2010(?) or by increasing numbers of U.S. states creating their own exactly-like-Medicare Single Payer health insurance plans and reforming the medical practices and costs within each state, state by state, the USA will get national health care.

Anyone can "protest" by yelling, screaming, hitting things, breaking things -- acting out their fears and anger.  We saw in the 2010 Occupy Oakland protests that leader-less self-organizing protests can occur and can last at 1+ protest sites for months!  Flash mellow mobs, in effect, that in fact can shut down or slow down "the evil socially destructive machine" at least for a while.

But we also saw there and at other Occupy protests across the country that "young violence-prone" hooded and face-masked people (i.e people who did not want to be identified or held accountable for their actions) had infiltrated an otherwise non-violent protest and caused so much violence and destruction of property that police forces charged their riot forces into them to arrest them and fired tear gas, rubber bullets and hard "bean-bag" missles to disperse those not arrested injuring many in one case breaking an ex-Iraq war vet's skull! 

If there are leaders at and in a protest site, how smart must they be to achieve the group's goals non-violently with the least or no damage to others -- including the police? 

If there are no protest leaders at a protest site, how smart (observant, careful, advisory) do what percent of the crowd members have to be to ensure that the protest takes place start-to-finish peacefully?
