Justin Miller (worth a read) quotes Peter Grier's Christian Science Monitor article on RealClearPolitics in his commentary today: "The gains really come from alienated, independent voters who tend to be fickle, can stay home on Election Day and are easily drawn to third party candidates...."
News for you, Justin: Independents have an agenda, which corresponds to a non-partisan, let's say anti-partisan view of politics. Fickle? I think not. Independents CHOOSE to be second class citizens. We don't have the rights that partisans have, but we think partisanship is dangerous to the future of the country. Let's be real clear!
I'm PROUD to be "alienated" in a world of partisan deal-making clubhouse political policy that doesn't represent the American people! To be in sinq with the Parties will only drag us backward. We need to move beyond partisanship and the deadly destructive global politics we are now engaged in.
Justin, have you talked to an independent lately????
