I knew this would happen sooner or later.Posted Tuesday, November 1, 2011, at 9:14 PM
It seems that I'm not the only one dissatisfied with the current state of affairs when it comes to American politics. The never ending battle between the far left and the far right, leaving those of us in the middle disenfranchised. Well I came by this article a few minutes ago, and after reading it, I thought, what a great idea! It's not a new concept, but it sure is a whole new way of trying to achieve a goal. This nation is at a turning point. The Democrats will nominate Obama, while the Republicans are engaged in a battle of the hard right trying to gain control of the party. Net result, the moderates and independents are left out in the cold again. If this new movement has any success, it will forever change the face of politics in America. If they achieve 20-30% of the popular vote, they will be a force to be reckoned with. The question will be asked, should the President be elected by a majority or a plurality? The last time that happened was in 92. Was the outcome good or bad?, that depends on your point of view. Is this the wave of the future? Only time will tell. Here is the link to the article.
