a third party?

i think i’m a demopublican…maybe, i’m a republicrat….i don’t know which one it is but why do we even have to have parties. maybe i’m naive but i think having parties promotes this separatism in our governement. i’m not so naive to think we wouldn’t have sides but i think we waste an AWFUL lot of time on being one side or another and then pointing out the differences or what’s wrong about the “others.” then there are the other parties…the tea party, the log cabin party, the independents….these parties just cloud the rest of it so that the dems and the gop can keep running the show…cue the national anthem! how about one party, the people party? vote for what you think and feel and not what your party says you should. vote for the best not for the rest….USA! USA!

seriously guys, can’t we all just get along?

  1. ME, I’m a registered Independent. I don’t vote a party line, I vote on qualifications and candidate passion. I want the best representation for me, not what they think I want. I believe the quiet majority of Americans are Centrist more than anything. Sure, we all lean one way or another on a particular issue, but it’s ridiculous to subscribe to one side merely for the sake of doing so.

    I’ll give you a controversial example: I’m white and male–two strikes against me already in today’s political climate. Ready for strike three? I’m pro-choice. I am male. It’s not my decision to make regarding a woman’s body. The choice I have is to not violate her in the first place. (For those who like their politics dumbed down, that means ‘keep it in my pants’.)

    We don’t need another party–we need a climate of coordination and compromise, a well-nurtured market of ideas for the common good, not the singular good. We need people who care about their country and not just themselves.
