They are not limited to undergraduates, but also write for Master and Doctorate degrees in subjects including law, nursing, business management, marketing, accounting, finance, psychology, education, sociology, and statistics and in a wide variety of styles.

Beware the Trump Administration

The New Progressive Alliance keeps references that allies and friends may use in support of the Unified Platform such as Make Your Case!  One of our resources that we maintain is a growing list of references for the article Don’t Let These People or Organizations Fool You    As with the Clintons, the large number of references on Trump became unwieldy for that article so we gathered them separately in this article. This article will be continuously updated with new references.

Climate Change and the Green Party by Gary Swing

Gary Swing is a leader in the Green Party and has formed the Boiling Frog Party to convey information in a humorous way.  He recently got the highest percentage vote for United States Senate of any Green Party Candidate in the United States.

Gary Swing on the Green Party

Gary Swing has both run as a candidate and written for the NPA before. (See "References" at end of this article.)   The New Progressive Alliance has documented extensively the failure of both major parties. I respect Green Party values and the fact that the Green Party has spent decades building itself. Nonetheless, I believe they are now on the wrong track. For my perspective see A Hard Look at Where We Are After the 2016 Election

Below is Gary’s perspective. This is a one of the problems endemic to the Green Party and extends far beyond the borders of Colorado.

Battle for the Future

I remember studying in the Naval War College about nations clashing either between democracies and dictatorships. Later Samuel Huntington in “Clash of Civilizations” proposed the conflict would be between Islam and the Judeo-Christians. This interesting article proposes that President Trump is trying to win fossil fuel supremacy over post-carbon green energy.
