Thread: Start of Something Big?

    Start of Something Big?

    Start of Something Big?
    With former Republican Congressman Bob Barr securing the Libertarian Party's presidential nod and former Democrat Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney seeking the Green Party presidential nod, are we poised for a sea change in American politics?

    Odds are low. The Rs and Ds -- ossified and entrenched as they are -- have rigged the game for themselves. And yet, voters may be poised to begin to think outside the box. Still, Denmark by the Potomac emits that putrid stench that it does. Sunshine and the fresh air of real choice may well begin to take hold in 2008. Plausible contenders -- some might even say "turncoats"--are calling out their former teams, and speaking truth to power.

    A McCain/Obama "showdown" may be -- all things considered -- the weakest field in a century. A septuagenarian who is engrained in the system as it is vs. a charismatic rookie by political standards...not much of a choice from this vantage point. A man whose very sanity and emotional stability has been widely questioned vs. man who consorts with conspiracy theorists and violent revolutionaries.

    Is it really so "crazy" to be thinking about a third way in 2008?

    On its face: No. Substantively: No, again.

    My review of the For Liberty documentary:
    (please Digg and post comments on the HuffPost site)

    "This political train-wreck Republicans face can largely be traced to Bush’s philosophical metamorphosis from a traditional, non-interventionist conservative to the neoconservatives’ exemplar of a 'War President', and his positioning of the Republicans as the 'War Party'."

    Blah. The people will do what's expected of them and chose between the 2 major candidates the media presents, barring Ron Paul being dragged kicking and screaming by his supporters and running as independant/third party with major league financial backing from wealthy individuals.

    a 3rd party will only be a Viable challenge, if all 3rd parties UNITE! This would make a very formidable challenge to the current 2 party Fascist & Neocon parties. But, not a SNOWBALLS CHANCE IN HELL with the Political corruption in Washington DC and ALL 50 states!
