Third Party & Independents Archives

Things you have to believe

Politics in the Zeros has a list of 20 things you must believe to be a Republican today. Entertaining and accurate, but other than 2, 5, 6, 10, 15, and 16, how are the Democrats any different?

Yes, the Dems support Hillary in general but put Newt Gingrich there in her place and they’d take the same position that the Reps do. 30% difference between the Dems and Reps, and I’m sure you could easily come up with 6 statements about Democrats that are just as hypocritical.

If you find that list absurd, disturbing, offensive, etc etc then stop and ask yourself: Do I really want to support EITHER of the major parties? Look into third parties, find an organization that you would be proud of belonging to. Your party may not win the White House this year, or in 2008, but keep in mind both the Dems and Reps were upstart parties once. And more important, you CAN have great success at getting third party candidates elected at the local and even state level. Which is what will really affect your daily life.
