Austin has also asked me to contribute to TPW and I am happy to oblige. I joined the Constitution Party in 2000 after decades of laboring in the Republican Party vineyards. I voted for Howard Phillips for president in 2000 and Michael Peroutka in 2004. My state party disaffiliated from the Constitution Party earlier this year and I have since joined the American Heritage Party.

    Not only is the USA the only post industrial nation

    but our non parliament, two party duopoly is the laughing
    stock of the planet, along with our holier than thou
    empire building in the Philipines [1898], Viet Nam [1955]
    and the Arabian Gulf [1955 to present]!

    • YOUR dollar bill is actually a rented Federal Reserve Note!

    So called American Socialists and Feminists would
    be metered at mid range main stream in New Zealand,
    Austrialia, Canada and Europe. Our average citizen,
    especially in the Red/ Red Neck states are Reactionary———on a global scale.

    So what is going to happen to Third Party Watch after
    the faze out of Cassidy? Will there be any gate keepers
    whom are not ‘slightly right of Attia The Hun’?

    What next, political calls for Christianity as a state faith?
    Demands to publically, officially glorify Jesus Christ?
    Demands against Homosexuality, abortion, pot?

    The camel’s nose is ‘in the tent’ and the web super high way
    is slippery with untra right wing [but not necessarily
    conservative] snot!

    What next, tons of 21 st century fascist Neo Cons - just as the rest of the nation is flushing these
    nazis down the toilet of history?

    Ummm…yeah, whatever. I refer you to the following post:

    Any takers?”

  3. Paul Craig Roberts Says:

    Bush is Not a Conservative *

    • Doctor Paul Wayne Snyder, PhD, “hey, the ballooning national debt alone, a la Franklyn Roosevelt, Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, or fascist Italy”

    December 10, 2006
    by Paul Craig Roberts

    The conservative movement in the United States has been stamped out, not by liberals but by neoconservatives.

    Conservative philanthropic foundations, conservative print media, and conservative think tanks have been taken over by neoconservatives, who have exiled real conservatives to voicelessness and joblessness.

    Neoconservative translates as “new conservative.” However, there is nothing at all conservative about neoconservatives. The name is a misnomer of the first rank. Neoconservatives believe that the US can deracinate foreign cultures and remake foreign countries in America’s image. True conservatives, following Edmund Burke, do not believe that a country can be shorn of its social, political, economic and cultural ways and made anew from the ashes.

    Modern history bears out this opinion. The Jacobins of the French Revolution were going to transform not only France but also all of Europe, but no such thing happened despite the abolition of feudalism in 1792 by the National Assembly, the guillotine and France’s military dominance of Europe for two decades.

    The Bolsheviks were going to transform Russia, but after 75 years of an unaccountable communist party, Russia has emerged more capitalist than when the communist transformation of Russia began.

    Mao undertook to transform China by exterminating landlords, merchants and private property, but today China is emerging as the leading capitalist power of our time.

    There was no skimping on the expenditure of human life in behalf of the great cause to remake human society. Victims of the communist “transformation” of Russia and China number in the tens of millions.

    All of these outcomes reinforce the genuine conservative’s confidence in Edmund Burke. The only people who are intent on repeating the mistakes of the past are the neoconservatives, who believe they can remake the Islamic world in America’s image.

    In the face of the total failure of their plan to remake Iraq and Afghanistan, neoconservatives continue to say that America must deracinate Islam and put in its place a women’s rights democracy. On National Public Radio recently, neoconservative Joshua Muravchik reaffirmed that it was America’s job to remake Islamic society.

    Neoconservatism is actually a more extreme form of revolutionary utopianism than that of the Bolsheviks and the Jacobins. The Soviet communist party was content with trying to remake Russians. The Jacobins ran out of steam early, and Napoleon reinstituted the old order, dispensing titles of nobility and crowning himself emperor. Only neoconservatives are sufficiently ignorant and delusional as to believe that America’s overthrowing an Arab leader will result in Arab states reconstituting themselves in the West’s image.

    Neoconservatives have demonstrated an unrivaled ability to detach themselves from reality. Americans should be terrified that delusional neoconservatives were able to seize control of the presidency of George W. Bush and commit the US to two illegal wars that have been lost and that have isolated the US from the rest of humanity with the exception, of course, of Israel.

    The lack of any connection to reality makes the neoconservative print media, such as the Weekly Standard, the Wall St Journal editorial page, and National Review so absurd as to be unreadable. The December 4 issue of National Review, for example, has a cartoon portraying a US soldier in Iraq pondering the 2006 congressional election results. An Iraqi kid is tugging on the soldier’s trouser leg and saying “say you won’t go, Joe!”

    National Review’s editors are as lost in delusion as President Bush. And they are just as irrelevant. It boggles the mind that there could be a journalist anywhere on earth who is unaware that polls of Iraqis consistently show that large majorities of Iraqis are “strongly opposed” to the presence of US troops in Iraq, believe the US occupation makes them less secure, and approve of the insurgent attacks on US troops.

    When Bush says that the US will stay in Iraq and Afghanistan “until the job is done,” what job is he talking about? The slaughter of civilians? The destruction of Iraq’s infrastructure and entire towns such as Fallujah? The incitement of civil war? Recruitment for al Qaeda and the provision of a training ground for Osama bin Laden’s followers? The fostering of Islamic extremism throughout the Middle East? These are the real results of Bush’s occupation of Iraq, but they are not what he means by “the job.” In true Jacobin, Bolshevik, Cultural Revolution, neoconservative fashion, the job Bush wants to accomplish is the deracination of Islam and the recreation of Muslim society in America’s image. It is impossible to imagine a less conservative goal.

    Bush has taken America far beyond the role of being the world’s policeman. Bush is America’s first Jacobin president. He is as far from a conservative as it is possible to be.

    The Populist Party is fighting for Democracy in America

  5. Austin Cassidy Says:

    I’m not being removed from the site or anything. As someone posted earlier in the comments, I’m still looking for a Green Party blogger to join up. Hopefully in the next week or so. It’s about presenting a wide variety of perspectives on the world of third party politics. The left, the right, and even the center.

    Anyway, big welcome to Brad! He’s been kind of contributing news items to the site through me for some months now, so I think he’ll be a great asset.

  6. George Whitfield Says:

    Welcome Brad.

  7. Kris Overstreet Says:

    And a hearty welcome to the representative of the Christian Taliban.

  8. Donald Raymond Lake Says:

    Welcoming Brad Winthrop and TPW is still looking for Leftist/ Centrist/ Moderate/ Reformist imput…

    As you may have noticed, we’ve added another contributing writer to the site in the form of Brad Winthrop. Brad represents more of the right-leaning, Constitution Party, American Heritage Party area of third party politics. At least, that’s what his background is.

    Brad has a little bit of blogging experience of his own and has frequently forwarded me news items over the last year or so… many of which have been posted on TPW.

    So now, I think we’ve taken a really good first step at expanding the site into a multi-blogger format. Hopefully this will mean more posts, more activity, and more perspectives. Trevor, Stuart, and Brad will be great additions… along with Joe Magyer and myself continuing to post. At this time, it might still be good to add a member of the Green Party or from another “leftist” party. If you know of anyone who might be interested, let me know!

    I reluctantly volunteer.

    How ever, I consister this a legitimate conscription, and is not an active campaign. If ya don’t need my services there are no hurt feeling.

    Lots of folks hate me. [And I do not care!]

    I have been very interested in American politics—-usually for some very negative reasons since the Nixon Kennedy debates in 1960. In 1963 I found it very disturbing that JFK was killed in the same state that launched the next President. I am bothered that even Democrats consider John F. Kennedy a good [muchp less great] Chief Executive!

    In 1968 I had already gone from ‘Sgt Barry Sadler’ and the ‘Green Barets’ to viewing the mess in South East Asia as Phillipines 1898 Number II. I was greatly bothered by RFK’s entry into the presidential mix after LBJ was disheartened by Walter Conkite’s first hand essament of Viet Nam. I thought that a blatant support of Eugene McCarthy would have been far better than going after the top spot.

    After the assignations of MLK and RFK, I did not like Nixon any more but [sans McCarthy] I did not see any Dem worth bothering with.

    I have been a McGovern, Carter, Anderson-Lacey, Mondale, Dukiaks, Perot, Perot, Nader, Nader voter. My Perot votes were casted as other than an United We Stand America/ reform party member.

    I have been a state level candidate [four out of fourth, but lots of publicity] in California, a la Peace and Freedom Socialist/ Feminist. I have been the Southern California regional chair via the Reform Party of California and its wonderful, wonderful 2004 Veterans Abuse state Committee.

    In my teens and twenties, I was on the legendary Ruskin HS news paper, various college and running club publications, and was the defacto publisher of the only Reform Party USA national print news letter not worth laughing at. I am currently suing the past and present Reform Party of California chairs, John Blare and Valli Sharpe Giesler.

    I would rather alienate a friend, ally, associate for the truth than keep them for a lie.

    I believe the Republicrats and Democans are the root of most of our national problems as a corporate sponsered political duopoly and global empire while we pretend to be a democracy based, independent minded republic! We are so the source of our own problems! I have no problem with the rest of the world hating us [and Toady Blare’s Britain]!

    As a not married non parent school leaver in the 1970s I helped maintain WMD pointed toward large cities on the other side of the world. As a not married non parent school leaver in Manilia in 1900, in Sigion [Ho Chi Min City] in 1963, and in today’s Bagdad, I would probably be throwing rocks at US and English troops on a daily basis.

    Facts: We are too stupid to use the metric system and too arrogant to stay out of Manillia, Sigion, and Bagdad [three of the most Christain cities in the non Christain regions of the planet….] as the UNASKED Global Policeman. Our income tax was wedged through congress on Christmas Eve in 1913, our money is barrowed from corporate accounts, and yet we seem to continue to believe in Duopolitic fairly tales every second November! And we wonder why ‘things’ are not going our way.

    True [decline to state] Independents and Minor/ Micro party types have their problems—-but at least they are not Dems and GOP.

    It may take another 230 years, but relatively long lasting reform will come from the mucky, murky, mangled middle——not the far right or the far left [what ever those terms REALLY mean…..]!

    Until then, Citizens For A Better Veterans Home would REALLY like to see Californians Philip Sawyer, Ivann Greene, Rod Neptun, Larry Rockwood, Paul Wittkamm, or out of staters like Adam Oldari, Bill Greenwood, or Roy Downing, add their voices to what is sounding more and more like a classical Greek chorus at the once respected Third Party Watch.
