    If no one has heard of this party, I'd like to take the moment to get their name out there. I somewhat support the efforts of this fairly new third party. Many third parties out there will represent fringe ideals that aren't viable to a largely Centrist public. Well, Centrist is what this party prides itself on being. They do their best to study an issue and find the option(s) that will truely work for American people instead of what will work best for Democrats or Republicans. They only so far have two confirmed candidates. Gene Baldassari for the New Jersey 14th District Assembly, and Paul McKain for the Florida 2nd Congressional District. I think starting out small is a good tactic. Put your efforts in only a few at first. See what you think of their platform, (remember however that it is still growing so some of it is not fully completed)

    Looks promising.

    Hopefully the Republibertarians don't try and taint it.

    You know they will.



    That's what those guys do, is marginalize everything that isn't theirs.



    There's a whole lot of dis-satisfaction with the major parties though,

    and new ones are cropping up left and right.

    What's your thoughts about the modern whig party?

    I'll give it a look when I'm done with wifey's to-do list.

    They are apparently growing in official members very quickly. In the summer they only numbered at around 3,000, and only recently, they reached the 30,000 mark. That is a 1000% increase in only a few months. Outstanding! I hope the pattern continues.

    My take is, it's an attempted return to "traditional conservatism" -



    Or, let's say, "political conservatism" as distinct from

    "social" conservatism.

    It looks promising and possibly a party I could see myself voting for. I'm hoping that it doesn't turn out like the Libertarian party where Barr ended up as the face of a genuinely good party even though he was clearly conservative. I also hope all these parties popping up doesn't detract people and split the vote. It'd be nice if we could get one major contender to compete with the Dems and GOP.

    Hell, after almost 2 decades of 'dynasties' (Clintons/Bush) in control, the time is ripe.

    I will look into it as they develop, but I am cautious, and it almost sounds like the government today. I do not see a great platform change.



    How about of government being able to pick and choose who does what, they just stay out of the way!!??

    Hey lets not forget both Kerry and Obama are family to the Bush/Clinton clan.
