I have been advocating an Independent Party since early 2006, and registered as an Independent for the 2006 election. The reason for this is to return to the core values of this country and its Constitution, and to give back to the voters their individual rights. One of those rights is the privilege to expect that their privacy is protected from intrusions by government and private business. See earlier posts on this subject: 3/2/06 and 3/9/06. And now a well respected journalist from Newsweek magazine, Howard Fineman, has written an article, “The year of the Third Force.” He talks of the “festering dissatisfaction” among the electorate, which could lead to a problem for the Dems and the GOP in 2008. If you’re mad as hell and won’t take it anymore, let it be known by taking up the gauntlet for the Independent of your choice. Personally, I would like to see a new political party built around the privacy issue, particularly the rights of voters to control their names and personal data. If this is too narrow for you, let’s all get together and build our own Independent Party based on taking back our individual rights. Let me hear your comments.
