We need a new party in order to make this presently very corrupt government functional.
I would suggest there are three major points of unity people who are liberal, progressive and on the left can come together around:
Paying for this kind of healthcare reform which would create jobs is very easy if we stop these dirty wars.
Peace = Healthcare reform + Jobs
If a new political party did nothing more than deliver these three things that most Americans want it will have been a success.
The first thing we need to do is sign a "Declaration of Independence" from the Democratic and Republican parties controlled by Wall Street.
The second step is to serve notice on the Democrats and Republicans:
•No peace; no votes.
•No real healthcare reform; no votes.
•No jobs; no votes.
This is called "accountability" which is fundamental to democracy... voting out of fear does not create "accountability."
Then we need to convene a national conference to plan how to move forward in establishing regional, state and local committees for a new party--- perhaps we need to begin by challenging the Democrats in their own primaries and running as independents and even as write-in candidates committed to these three unifying things: peace, healthcare reform, jobs.
If everyone who are members of this FaceBook page would copy and paste this all over the Internet and on their FaceBook pages, blogs and WebPages and e-mail it to everyone on your e-mail lists we would start building a new political movement one person at a time... it would be like rolling a little snowball down a long, steep hill on a warm spring day--- the movement would keep getting bigger and bigger.
Each of us is like one little snowflake--- we don't amount to much... but, let a blizzard come along and try shoveling those little tiny snowflakes.
No one is going to do any of this for us; this needs to be a grassroots initiative.
Presently, we are living in what Tommy Douglas refered to as Mouseland... check out this brief video narrated by Tommy Douglas' grandson--- actor Keifer Sutherland:
