Politically astute friends: I need your help!
I used to think it was best to support the Democrats, as a functional counter to the Republicans. (Basically penance for the one time I failed to vote… and Regan became President.) But I’m older and crankier now, and don’t have the patience for the Democrats: They speak nicer sentiments, but are hardly the forces of change we need.
I’m looking for a political homestead: A group that cares about people over corporations. A group that speaks in facts in truths, and acts mature. No spouting ideologies, but enough fire to call a spade a spade. A group that encompasses all aspects it takes to govern a nation, not concerned with just one set of social issues, or a particular economic solution. A group with a platform I can get behind.
Anyone know such a party? A website? Non-Profit? A journal? Weekly meetings of concerned citizens? A writer? Is anyone organizing a reformation of American politics?
Or do I need to start planning to emigrate to some other country (suggestions welcome)?
