Declaring my complete independence
(page 2 of 2)
Never have I been more convinced that the time is right for a third alternative. My kingdom for: a party that can operate with common sense; a party that doesn’t just fall in love with a poll-tested concept, but understands that design and execution actually matter; a party that’s faithful to our founding document (as amended), not one that betrays it whenever ideological whim dictates; a party that believes government and business have a symbiotic relationship, not a master-slave arrangement; and a party that wisely and efficiently and effectively spends the money we send to Madison and Washington.
Now that would be a party worth celebrating. To those who say being a middle-of-the-roader means you become roadkill, that’s definitely a risk. But it’s better than being so far right or left that you end up stuck in a ditch. Sadly, on America’s 238th birthday, that sums up our predicament.
