It’s Their Party

…and they’ll cry if they want to.   Or maybe because they have to.

    Great news for the comedy writers.

    They raise some very good questions.
    Such as, public debt, globalization, taxation without representation and national sovereignty.
    Will be interesting to see how it will evolve.
    The two old parties need a shake up.

    flex – Actually, I have said this here before (and I think everyone thinks I’m nuts when I do), but there are a few things I agree with the teabaggers on. The libertarian component of the teabag movement actually makes some pretty good points.

    Unfortunately, it loses something in the delivery. Any voices that might make some sense are usually drowned out by the ones screaming about how Obama is a marxist/nazi/babykiller/islamofascist who wants to kill Granny, and how optional universal healthcare is “tyranny”. Please 🙄

    I agree 100% that the 2 party system needs a shakeup, and the US is just begging for a third party. But I expected it to come from conservative/libertarian moderates who departed the increasingly theocratic GOP and formed a center-right party.

    Interesting times, no doubt.

    Just a thought. Shouldn’t the near-death experience
    of the Republicans be enough to have a major purge and
    rethink in order to regain the esteem of Americans?

    Of course, a third party would do wonders to help
    bring about changes in the GOP and that might have
    to be the catalyst.

    Just keep the likes of Ross Perot and other cracker-
    barrel politicians away from the microphones and let
    the process run its course.

    Forgot to include the bail out point to that list of good questions.

    At this point and time I am personally not overly concerned about some gray areas of the movement. Should this party stick around, it will evolve. Which way it will go is a future concern for me.
    For the time being, I am glad to see my mentioned points to be raised and put into the spotlight.
    New parties tend to attract groups and people from many areas We consider fringe or not desirable and this movement is at it’s baby stage in my opinion. Unlike the “Ross Perot” experiment which was more of a single very rich person creating a party and more or less have control over it, this movement leadership question and questions is yet to be resolved is the way I see it presently.
    Time will tell the outcome but I do see some positive possibilities evolving from this.
    It may not going to materialize the way I hope it will but those mentioned issues and a few mores will have an impact on those two tired parties which can bring some real changes.
    Obama so far been a disappointment for me.
    The ever growing public debt and erosion of national sovereignty
    both in Canada and the US is the issues I find the scariest.


Wait. What?
