I'm not a fan of the Green Party and I haven't studied their platform at length, but this idea that they're advocating seizure of private assets held in banks seemed a little outlandish to me, so I did check that business on the web site you gave (thanks) and found out that it isn't the monies on deposit that they propose transferring but the ownership of the banks, which, please, is totally different. Granted that the tax scheme (as you state it -- I didn't check that part) would ultimately redistribute all wealth (assuming that there's also a tax on savings proposed) but they're not proposing to steal your money out of the bank. Really.
