Third party may spice up the next election

Third party may spice up the next election

As an avowed third party voter since 1992 I am personally delighted when we are offered more than just the usual two humdrum choices for state and federal positions. Rocky Anderson, whom I met and spoke with for a whole ten seconds once at a rally in DC, has launched a third party and hopes to maneuver the typical campaign dialog toward real issues like income inequality and unfair taxation and climate change. Anderson is representative of truly progressive values. Democracy Now has more

“We launched the Justice Party because the entire system is so corrupt,” Anderson says. “It’s so diseased. We know that the public interest is not being served by anyone in the system right now, particularly the two dominant parties who have sustained this corrupt system and who are sustained by it.”

    Spoiler Alert: Do you remember, that the republicans were down to Mitt and John, when the deal was cut. Mitt stepped aside because he claimed that at a time of war he felt the country was better off with McCain, thus John was rewarded for his loyalty to Bush. Now the script is to reward Mitt for his sacrifice, Newt is a shill to make Mitt appear as the most presentable to the core.
    Newt has betrayed them before, and now Mitt is getting worried that they may have betrayed his loyalty. They’re in a real tailspin this time.

    The fascists in power will never allow anyone not in their loop to win. Remember Gore V Bush? But I will not vote for Obama again no matter what. See you all in the retraining camp where Mark M. will be teaching the course.

    Obama now says he will not veto the defense bill that tramples our few remaining civil liberties so we had best trample him out of office and vote in a real progressive like Rocky.

    “The current two party systems are designed to sustain entrenched corporate-driven power.”

    You will be told that this is a spoiler for the democratic party, we are always told that, do you still believe that nonsense?

    Ask yourself , locally are the democratic party and the republican party on the same page and agenda, concerning the port’s plans for LNG and coal exportation?

    The only difference they offer is shade of lipstick.
