On 05.12.2012, the eve of the Green Party's 2012 presidential 
debate between Dr. Jill
Stein and comedienne Roseanne Barr, Laura spoke to KPFA about new attention given to 
Green Party forums and the Green Party presidential race, thanks to the Occupy Movement 
and the social extremes created by what she calls "the two Titanic parties," Democrat 
and Republican. When suggesting that people consider joining the Green Party, or any 
other independent party that doesn't take corporate campaign contributions, Laura 
often says that "the two Titanic parties" just keep moving toward the iceberg, 
no matter how dire the warning signs.
