The party that is able to wrest the power of decision making from corporations and give the citizens a participatory democracy will be the party of the 21st century. If American is to survive as a democracy, that is. Who did you vote for in the last election? Do you really believe it mattered? It wasn’t a real choice. Democrats and Republicans are only modern functionaries of the Whig party.
Do either of them speak for the common man? They don’t speak for me.
I can tell you this much: The internet will have as much to do in the shaping of our new party as anything else. It will have to begin at the local level, where real leaders can prove themselves and gain the confidence of citizens. They can thumb their noses at federal dollars should they wish to opt out of the federal co-opting of state and local rights. This is called subsidiarity, and it is a concept I’m going to keep bringing up. This party will platform on personal responsibility, freedom instead of license, new ways of working and thinking about work, sustainable local economies, an abiding love for life, citizens as autonomous individuals, not property of the state, and education as its own reward not a jobs project.
