      ITS HARDER IN THE US WITHOUT PREFERENCIAL VOTING BUT THE PRINCIPLE IS
      THE SAME - WE NEED A POLITICAL ALTERNATIVE TO CAPITAL. CAPITALISTS ARE
      THE MAIN ENEMY AND HOWARD IS THEIR PREFERRED FRONT MAN. THE REASON WE
      MIGHT TARGET HOWARD AS THE MAIN ENEMY IS THAT THAT REFLECTS THE
      CONSCIOUSNESS OF MOST PROGRESSIVE PEOPLE.

      WHERE DO THE GREENS FIT HERE?

      > In Australia, we unconditionally support an ALP victory, in the US,
      we need to say that in concrete terms there is no difference, but we
      want Bush out because it would be seen as a vindication of his
      policies if he was re-elected.

      I THINK WE CAN RECOGNISE THAT A WIN FOR THE ALP IS BETTER FOR WORKING
      PEOPLE (AND THIS IS REFLECTED IN THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE ALP OVER LIBS
      BUT "UNCONDITIONALLY" I DON'T THINK SO.

      > In Australia, we must say- Howard out , vote socialist,

      IN AUST WE SAY VOTE SOCIALIST AND GREEN AND DISTRIBUTE PREFERENCES ON
      THE BASIS OF YOUR POLITICAL PRINCIPLES.
