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.
