    Rogers still smells a bit Green.

    2) I oppose the state property tax and support a graduated income tax.
    4) I support universal health care for Pennsylvania.
    5) I support a Pennsylvania living wage

    My knowledge of living wage is really slim, but the whole thing smells unlibertarian, even from MY perspective.

    DUH! ITS THE PROGRESSIVE ALLIANCE! She will magically win the Supreme Presidency of the Milky Way by combinging 1% and 1% to get 34%.

    Attorneys General don’t set tax rates or health policy…

    The questoin here is whether Greens and LP in Penn have the same law enforcement priorities… what corporations and people could this guy be prosecuting? Could he try to FREE MUMIA?

    Well, John Murphy’s running for Congress here in PA and he has the nomination of both the LP and the GP and the CP. But he’s officially an independent, along with all other third party candidates in Pennsylvania, because of ballot access laws. Not sure if that applies in this case, but it could be something similar.

    Here is the rationalization behind the PA LP running a Green for Attorney General:

    should the LP reject any candidate who doesn’t score a 100-100 on that world’s smallest political quiz? If so, we’re not a party but a club. Futhermore, what if one questionable position of an LP candidate has no bearing on the duties of that office?

    So, according this guy, any deviance from libertarianism is entirely excusable because otherwise the LP would not be a political party.
