I have heard fringe elements on the American political scene demanding to have a place on the stage for the national presidential debates.
Roseanne Barr ran for President on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket in 2012. I understand that she’s doing stand-up comedy at various Indian casinos across the land and is not campaigning this election cycle. “The Peace and Freedom Party” is actually/legally the Peace and Freedom Party of California
. Please don’t confuse that with the Freedom Socialist Party
and the Party for Socialism and Liberation
. They all have candidates for president, and they’d like to share the televised stage with Trump and Clinton.
There is also a Socialist Alternative Party
for those socialists who can’t make common cause with the Peace and Freedom Party of California, the Freedom Socialist Party and the Party for Social Liberation. And there is the Green Party
, which is trying to attract the Bernie Sanders supporters who find Hillary Clinton to be an odious crone who is in the pocket of Wall Street. I am not going to leave out the Communist Party of America
(CPUSA), which is viewed as a bunch of sell-outs by the hard core left since they are endorsing Hillary Clinton for President. Since CPUSA was the party of choice of Barack Obama’s family and of his dear “Uncle Frank”, I think that it’s only right that they back the candidate that Barack endorsed.
NOTE: The Russians aren’t communists anymore and haven’t been since Gorbachev and Yeltsin. Putin is an oligarch, but he’s certainly not a communist. It’s no longer the Soviet Union. It’s the Russian Republic and that transformation brought a lot of broken hearts in the American Socialist/Communist/Green Party Movements.
Gary Johnson is the Libertarian Party’s candidate
for President. His pledge to stop smoking dope while he’s running for president touched me deeply. Johnson knows what it is to sacrifice for his country. I think that he’s eating medically approved C. Sativa while he is meeting and greeting the public but he’s not puffing, but I haven’t delved enough to know all of the smarmy the details, and I frankly don’t care.
I haven’t written much about Johnson on this blog because I think that he’s too insignificant to mention unless it’s in the context of 100 political parties on the same stage trying to shout each other down (100 ring circus – do you hear the steam calliope?)
My sense is that if Hillary is too ill to take out my trash, Johnson would go into drug-induced sleep on the lounge poolside rather than taking the trash out. Trump would naturally hire a brilliant scientist to invent a trash disposal system so that it would be turned into something valuable and I could sell my refuse it rather than setting it curbside to be picked up every Thursday. At least, that’s how I see it.
The American Independent Party
peaked when they nominated George Wallace for the presidency. It has since fragmented into the American Conservative Party and the Constitution Party, both of which have similar axes to grind. The American Independent Party has endorsed Donald Trump.
The Witches and Pagans
have not endorsed Hillary Clinton yet, and I find that odd, given her nature and the ‘flying monkeys’ who surround her.
Wikipedia did a good job of listing all of the political parties in America. You can read about it HERE
. There are some that I’d never heard of that have some regional traction such as the Working Families Party
and the Progressive Party of Vermont, both of which are socialist variations of the same themes mentioned above. The Black Rider’s Party
was formed in the California Prison System and identifies with the Black Panthers. The Humane Party
appears to be another black party but is only interested in animal rights, Clifton Roberts is running for President of the United States on their ticket. His Vice Presidential partner is Amie “Breeze” Harper. Both would vow to stop Americans from eating all meat, including bacon. The Islamic Party supports them in part but can’t get behind them fully because they aren’t ALL Muslims, but some are “black Muslims”, which not all Muslims agree are bonafide members of Islam even though they are part of the Nation of Islam
, which Islamic people in the Iran and Saudi Arabia don’t recognize even though they all agree to hate Israel. The Nation of Islam hates white people more than Israelis and it may be the priority of hatred that causes all of the confusion. Make whatever sense of that as you are able.
One of the more fun political parties
is the United States Pirate Party
(no, I’m not making this up
). I don’t know if they would cause all Americans to talk like pirates every day
, and it might get old, but fun all at the same. I didn’t know that there was a Global Pirate Initiative, but there is. Pirate globalists. Now, there’s a concept.
NOTE: Maybe this is just my fantasy but; The national drink would be grog and rum and women would all be compelled to wear those serving wench outfits. The State of the Union Address would be laced with phrases such as, “shiver me timbers”, “kill the scurvy dog”, and “avast ye lubbers!” After the speech, they’d all go and suck the monkey (and that’s not an orgy involving Barack H. Obama).
I was crushed to hear that Jonny Depp was not running as the Pirate Party’s candidate for President of the United States.
There are racist parties
(The Humane party contends that it’s animal centric, not racist) like the Black Panther Party, the Aztlan Movement (which would return the American West and Texas to Mexico and would kick out white people) and the Hawaii Independence Party who would just as soon not have any white people on the islands, but
they’ll keep what others built without paying for it. This party grouping would be especially fun to have up on that debate stage. But could they upstage the Pirate Party? Somehow I expect that they’d be keel-hauled, kissing the gunner’s daughter or given thirty lashes with a cat-o-nine-tails before that happened.
