Does America Need a Third Party?...

Been saying it for neigh on 15 years. Some things just take time to gather steam I suppose.

Perhaps it is the advent of the Tea Party with it's winner take all and take no prisoners attitude toward government. Or maybe it is America has gown weary of the educated, elitist leftist that control academia and to a lesser extent the main stream media. Possibly it is a combination of both, which is more likely than not.

Without being judgmental it is safe to say it is high time we have a viable third party alternative in these United States of America. Ideally a party that thinks outside the box of 19th and 20th century paradigms.

We can always hope.

  1. I wonder how many of those who want a third party are actually Tea Party types.

  2. All that can be said about a viable Tea Party is.. may the ancient Gods of Greece help us all.

  3. I'd like to see another Reform party type of movement (this time preferably with a leader a little more sane than Perot) and I'd man (sexist?) this one with moderates, small l libertarians, and think outside the box liberals and I'd focus in on tax reform, immigration reform, pentagon reform, a scaling back of the drug war, and a handful of other issues.......Oh, and the answer to your question is, hell yes!!

  4. Will: and without the Reform Party's destructive anti immigration and anti free-trade?

    The biggest "giant sucking sound" heard then was from those bad ideas, which really really sucked.

  5. RN and Dmarks,
    Earlier today, I was researching archives at the FeetStinke blog and found some of your older comments. Most noteworthy, Dmark's comment that calls out Waylon for anti-Semitism, and RN's remarks on various examples of hyper-hypocrisy on the part of FT - remarks that brought an ugly and reprehensible reply.

    Please accept my thanks for your time and courage in standing up to misfits and sandbox bullies. Frankly, more courage and more moral clarity than I have seen recently from some of my lilly-livered liberal colleagues of late. Thanks again!

    Yup, third party! I agree to that (unbeknownst to many of you, I am actually registered as an independent).

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. Thanks. I'd forgotten I'd left those comments.

      I've seen fools like Waylon for many years, on blogs and forums. The type that holds to a massive conspiracy theory (really lame) in which events are manipulated by an evil Jewish cabal (much worse than lame). They really get my dander up, but they are so lost in their fantasies and deep hatreds that most of the time, I pay them little attention.

      I saw some of the comments after mine. but only followed for a brief time before once again forgetting the FritoKinke blog even exists.

    3. Well (O)CT(O)PUS, I may be a fiscal conservative but I certainly know hypocritical slime and BS when I see it. I could say a lot more about those you mention but there would be no point because those who recognize it already don't need to be told again and those who don't never will.

      Sometimes after one has said their piece, repeatedly as I did, it's best to just back off and let the turds marinate in their own s*it.

      By the way (O)CT(O)PUS, thanks.

    4. Yes, dmarks, with those 2 stipulations of course.

  6. I think it would be a very good thing if some more Democratic Socialists like Bernie Sanders were elected to Congress. As for the Reform Party, I very much agree with their Constructive immigration and free-trade stances (which aren't "anti" at all), as well as their being for campaign finance reform, and lobbying reform. I disagree with their destructive Libertarian fiscal ideas, especially their (if passed, what would be very destructive) Balanced Budget Amendment proposal. And their idea of term limits (which would also be very bad).

    BTW, Dan Quayle thinks that if not for Perot he and GHWB would have beat Clinton in 1992. A good thing, if that is what happened.

  7. You are entitled to your opinion.

    This site agrees more democrat republic minded people with a strong pro capitalist agenda ( capitalism that builds the middle class and America) running for snd getting elected to office would be a good thing.

    Dan Quayle is right. GHWB is a good man, a better president than his son, and I admire him for his years of service to his country and fellow Americans.

    In retrospect I'm okay with Bubba.

  8. PS: Have a conversation with Ellsworth Toohey, er Bernie Sanders. You'll get farther with him.

  9. Capitalism enriches the plutocrats. Regulated capitalism and Socialism (socialism like the GI bill) built the Middle Class. And Bernie Sanders is a hero, not an Ellsworth Toohey. In any case, that book is full of villains, the primary one being the egomanical rapist Howard Roark.

  10. You were given the last word. Enjoy your sense of victory. You've earned it.

    BTW, your choice of heroes is indeed weird.
