Third Party & Independents Archives

It's Better Without Bias

When it comes to politics, the best thing I’ve done was become part of the Independents. It’s the place to be where you have the freedom to listen to different opinions and form your own decision without any bias. This is something that not enough Americans have done, and that certainly more should do. There aren’t enough voters who can listen to debates, arguments or opinions and comprehend everything.

Certain topics push certain buttons for people emotionally and that becomes all that matters to them, be it gay marriage, health care, abortion, deficit, job creation, etc. I will tell you that two of those three are much more important than the others. However, one hot button makes a person feel like that is all the makes the world go round, and that's why Americans have become sheep in need of a shepherd.

Even for voters who are partisan to the left or right, it would make this important election much better if they can set aside their biases to make a more objective decision. The emotions and subjective elements of politics are what's going to kill us. After watching the first debate this week, and listening to both sides, Mitt Romney took a leap ahead as the more qualified candidate.

It was also said this week that Gary Johnson will appear on ballots in 47 states for a third party candidate. This is great, however 47 states doesn't exactly make it a fair game, and the election is less than a month away. As Independents we praise making informed unbiased decisions, and now Americans have a little over three weeks to make a decision about another candidate. That's just not enough time.

Michael, in Virginia we will have at least four NEW choices on the presidential ballot. Gary Johnson, ex-gov N.M., Virgil Goode, Rep/Va., Dr. Jill Stein, and Rocky Anderson will be on the ballot.

The WaPo suggests that over $2B will be spent on the 2012 elections. Virgil Goode is limiting donations to $200 per family.

The debate will be held in Chicago on October 23rd and broadcast on the Internet.

I’ll vote for a 3rd party candidate as usual but it’s unfortunate that so few have any faith in a 3rd party, myself included. I believe any viable 3rd party will have to come with some new wrinkles, like a plan to remove the money influence from politics/gov’t. Just another plain vanilla 3rd party won’t do it for the people, IMO.

1) Biases are not all bad. We come to believe many of the things we do because of both our independent circumstances and our independent minds. This allows different ideas to come up, some of which the other side might not be inclined to think of.

2) But biases blind, too. We are often unwilling to see whether the other side is right, as jealous fights for power wage on. Personally, I’m not exempt. It’s unfortunate, but it’s human nature.

3) So what can be done? Here’s my opinion. The solution is not simply to have you have your Fox News and me my MSNBC, your Red State, and my Daily Kos. No, the solution is to have a media that is neither one nor the other, but which tries to pursue the truth, the facts in any given situation.

Bias theory has a way of corrupting our judgment. It doesn’t do us much good to simply assume that information that doesn’t suit our personal theories is wrong, and that politicians in trouble ,for one reason or another, are just being persecuted by the media. Ultimately, we need to maintain our awareness of our faults, if we want to remedy them, rather than become their victim.

Seeing thru the weeds is important. Median household net worth dropped 39% between 07 and 10. The right and left are arguing over jobs numbers with seemingly complete disconnect from median net worth. They seem willing to give the politicians a pass on the 39% loss so long as folks are employed at something and/or so long as jobless folks don’t get counted on the unemployed tally sheet.

IMO, the dialog should be about the great number of politicians that will be voted from office this November for failing to do their job.

Still, nothing from the Atty Gen on vetting the right of a citizen to sue federal officials for failing to carry out their sworn oath to uphold the Constitution. Alas - - -

When buy the fashion handbag, we need to consider many factors, today we will discuss three of these factors, shape, size and length.


Shape – next up is the shape of the bags, and by this we mean getting the shapes that will compliment the shape of your own body. The rule of thumb is to go for bags that are opposite to the features of your body. Slim and tall women will look good carrying rounded bags while shorter and curvier women should sport bags that have strong angles. Size – the size of the bags also matter so don’t go for bags that are too small if you are tall and avoid oversized ones if you are short in height. Length – the first essential aspect that you should look into before buying any handbag is their length. The length of your bags when you carry them will play a big role as far as aesthetics is concerned. If you are someone who has small hips, go for bags that go well on your hip length. Larger women should target bags that sit well around their waistline.


So when you go to buy the fashion handbag, think about these three factors, shape, size and length.

What, then, are the characteristics that make an MSA likely to spawn successful neologisms? It’s well established that Coach Outlet Twitter has a higher rate of adoption among African Americans than other ethnic groups, and so it perhaps isn’t Coach Outlet surprising that they now find that innovation centres, as well as being highly populated, have a higher proportion of Coach Outlet African Americans, and that similarity of racial demographic can make two urban centres more likely to be linked Coach Outlet in the influence network.

Easily packable Coach Factory Outlet the president’s majority shrank nationally, he won a larger proportion of Latino and Asian votes Gucci Belt than in 2008.
