Is this the best we can do?

It seems likely that the Presidential election will be between Barack Obama and John McCain. I can't in good conscience vote for or endorse either of them. Obama's connections to radical preacher Jeremiah Wright and his wife's obvious anti- Americanism disqualify him. On the other hand, McCain's neoconservative positions (hard line with Russia and Iran) and embrace of the spurious doctrine of supply-side economics (i.e voodoo economics)make him unacceptable. There is no way for an independent like myself to vote for either of these men.

I would like to start a third party. Perhaps we can call it the Populist Party. (Not original, but a good name nonetheless). Our philosophy will be simple. We will stand up for the vast majority of the people against the powerful lobbyists. We will be champions of true democracy. We will eschew dogma of both the left and right. If we only had a candidate...
