New Party

I think that now, more than at any time in the last 100 years, we are ready for a new third party. Not a spin off of disgruntled Republicans, but a coalition of moderate to right leaning, thinking people that are just sick of old school Democrats. The biggest problem with our existing political system is that if you have a (D) or a (R) behind your name, you automatically elevate whomever is the oldest, crustiest, partisan pol into a leadership position.

You could be the most moderate Democrat in the the Congress, but you will... you must caucus with your party and make Nancy Pelosi powerful. You will also cause the committees to be all Democrat controlled. It is actually kind of like the infamous card-check balloting for union elections. Woe be unto the Congressman or Senator who does not caucus with his or her party. Secret ballot? No way! When you vote for your representative, you are really voting for the party, regardless of what people say.

We really need some of the heavy hitters like Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson and some moderate, non-Kool-Aid drinking Democrats like, like, like, well there has to be somebody on the Democrat side that would admit to supporting hard working Americans who are not looking for a hand-out and who see that there are ways we can all work together to raise up the country without tearing down the people that really make this country go.

I think that the people mentioned in the previous paragraph have shown themselves capable of speaking their minds without patronizing like Obama who has spent the last two years saying absolutely NOTHING unless he was forced to make a decision, then he swerved to the center to look like he is a common man of the people. Obviously, America can be fooled and we will be paying that tab for a long time now.
