Re "Highlights of Gov. Jerry Brown's revised budget" (Business, May 13): Gov. Brown's misguided attempts to reconfigure high-speed rail funding bear insidious consequences.

If Brown implements Cap and Trade to pay for HSR, fines paid by the state's worst polluters would virtually bail out High Speed Rail Authority from its self-inflicted predicament: the loss of Proposition IA money. That would leave the authority forever indebted to certain corporations, and it would release it from Proposition IA's fiscal regulations.

The result? A deregulated project, discreetly tied to discredited corporations, violating the public trust embodied in Proposition IA, which HSRA continually disregarded while collecting salaries and spending millions. Cap and Trade misuse would then become the equivalent of money laundering. Moreover, Cap and Trade would be funding a project identified as a 30-year net polluter.

If Cap and Trade jumpstarts HSR, California's rainy day fund could become a safety net for the project, extending the bailout indefinitely.

Imagine A Better California Vote Green Party!
 
MAKE THE VOTE THAT WILL BE HEARD AROUND THE WORLD.

The polls have openned in Fresno and now is the time to vote.  Now here is why you should Vote Green.

“Imagine a California where there is no more poverty, no more failing prison system, no more poisoning of our Eco-system, Free Healthcare for all, Free Quality Education and Art, Music, Theater, Writing and Festivals in every neighborhood.” - Luis J. Rodriguez – Governor Candidate. www.rodriguezforgovernor.org.
WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN IF YOU VOTE GREEN PARTY!

Will you IMAGINE an UC STUDENT ENGAGED in the DECISIONS made for COLLEGE STUDENTS?
HOW LONG HAVE WE BEEN MAKING THESE DEMANDS?
• FAIR ELECTIONS – GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS!
• HELP STATE AND LOCAL BUSINESSES - Recognize local legalization of cannabis, Bans GMOs or requires producers to label GMOs. Transition to organic methods.
• IMPROVE OUR ENVIRONMENT - Close all nuclear power facilities in California.
• SYSTEM REFORM - Minimum wage to be re-calibrated for today's cost of living, Single payer healthcare, End the death penalty, end prolonged solitary confinement and release those held for nonviolent substance use where appropriate.


David Curtis – Secretary of State Candidate. - www.votefordavid.org.
There is a solution where the money stays in California and not to Wall Street: a STATE BANK.
“California cannot solve its budget problems by slashing services that have already been cut to the bone or raising sales taxes that hurt the poor far more than the rich. We are fighting over a pie that remains too small. The pie itself needs to be expanded – and it can be by reclaiming that portion that is now siphoned off in interest and bank fees. How can that money be recaptured? By owning the bank.”-
Ellen Brown –Treasurer Candidate – http://ellenbrown4treasurer.nationbuilder.com
..and what things we can do…
“We can have better health, housing, jobs, justice, education, and environment, especially in California, which is still a wealthy state. It’s time w stop doing what supports the 1%. They like it when we don't vote, or when we vote for candidates that take corporate money – which includes almost all conventional candidates. If they win, you lose.” –
Laura Wells – State Controller candidate. www.laurawells.org
Voters can never envision such ideas and goals are possible, yet your vote means more.  GREEN PARTY CANDIDATES take NO MONEY from CORPORATE AMERICA making YOUR VOTES MEAN MORE THAN MONEY.

IMAGINE if California voters supported the Green Party candidates, the political world would be overwhelmed. Will the media say that people got fed up with the major party’s dishonesty and manipulation or that the people have revolted against their corporate masters? The political/economic world will discover fear since the Depression.  Yours and the voters of California can be the vote heard round the world.
