Our website exists because of one chilly evening in October, when I had a political discussion with some of my friends. I made a discovery.
I have a problem. A seriously debilitating problem. Want to know what it is? Here you go: You can't put a D or an R next to my name.
Mainstream media and your political science professor would look at my views, throw up their hands, and laugh hysterically.
What if someone is pro-choice, pro-marriage equality, and pro-women's rights, but is anti-socialized healthcare, pro-second amendment, and fiscally conservative when it comes to tax policy's?
This shouldn't be an issue at all. Even if all of those individual issues are completely jumbled and someone has an even more "mixed up" stance, they should flaunt his. We need to go against the mainstream political scene. We need to look at every issue as a STANDALONE issue, and choose not to care what the parties believe.
Our bipartisan system is broken. We need a major third, fourth, even a fifth party, and we need it badly. More so, we need to start thinking independently, and care a lot less about what the bipartisan system tells you to believe in. What good are Constitutionally given rights and freedoms if a well-established structure gives us only two realistic choices for every bill, law, candidate and policy?
See, abortion has nothing to do with chartered schools. Or handguns and my ability to carry one. Or foreign policy. Why must we only have two choices, where we believe in one set of ideas, or in the polar opposite of everything with the other party? Seems to me with the wide spectrum of issues, and the odd coincidence that one party just happens to believe the complete opposite of the other, that maybe they have a long-running pact to disagree for the sake of disagreement. Far too long have Americans been forcing themselves to give up their ability to THINK CLEARLY on every issue, for each issue, all for the comfort of being part of a group: Democrat, or Republican.
Everyone is welcome here, whether you are a communist, a socialist, an environmentalist, a moderate, a conservative, a liberal, an anarchist, or even a voting or registered Democrat or Republican. We seek to open up the minds of everyone affected by the limiting dogma of our bipartisan system, which, frankly, means practically everyone.
Our site aims to change the absurd reality of this system. Shed the D and the R, disown the party affiliation, start caring about America and start voting INDEPENDENT (In other words think for yourself)
