For a long time I have believed that the country would be much better off if we had a third political party. Not one of those that runs a Presidential candidate and them immediately disappears Any party that swings too far in any direction would fear that it might become a small minority party. Let’s give our Congressman another choice. Not just be with their party or against the other party. PS: There are NO stations in Texas that carry your program. A very sad state of affairs. The public hears dozens of preservatives all day.

Texas is the only state in the union which charges to view their state corporation filings online, a buck a throw. That means they have a lot to hide that they don't want poor people to look at.

The parties themsleves have not done a good job in convincing us that parties are good at all. It's a constant clamor for money.

How about NO parties. Parties and factions are divisive then nothing gets done in the long run.

I say disband the parties. Make it against the law to be affiliated to a party. They are too powerful. No voter falls 100% in line with one particular party anyway.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
