2012 election 3rd party - let's oust the REDEMLICANS
All signs seem to point to Obama creating a pattern of giving something to the right and something to the left (though he has certainly given more generously to the right). This is not a surprise, seeing as this is the man who made famous "not red states or blue states, but the United States." On some levels this is a noble endeavor. But within the realities that have evolved in our country during the past half century this approach screams naivete. Even given the undeniable intelligence displayed by our new president, and also his abilities to use political savvy to accomplish goals, unfortunately he is at the base merely continuing the march our country has made to the tune played by Corporate "Generals."
I for one have made a decision to put my efforts and actions behind a third party candidate for president in 2012. It is high time to find someone who TAKES PRINCIPLED STANDS, no matter how difficult they may seem, or how politically dangerous they may be. Our country has been ripped apart by crazies on the far right. It will not be put back together by reverting to our lemming-like march to corporate drumbeats.
Obama is of course a huge improvement over the previous administration, and I hope that we are able to achieve a certain measure of change within these next four years. But I am fed up with democrats who constantly "make nice" with the right, AT THE EXPENSE of we the people. Our country has been kidnapped, and all most of the democrats can do is offer the kidnappers more money, and tell them that we'll give them lots more if they'll just promise not to kidnap anyone anymore.
Dennis Kucinich, are you preparing another run? Maybe the best way for you to go is via a third party. The republicans are in disarray, the democrats are disappointing in many, many ways. I think this is the time when there may well be enough disenchanted "two-party" veterans who are ready to leave this tired, tired, failed system. I'm ready to get behind you right now!
Let's oust the REDEMLICANS, and take back our country.
