Democracy!

    I follow Rosanne on twitter, and just wanted to mention something interesting...

    She is running for president on the Green Tea Party. (Green)

    She is recruiting people to be in her gvt on twitter!

    Is this real democracy, or what?

    ...Or, will people brush her off as a kook?

    It makes me think....

    Gvt by ordinary citizens, as it was intended to be? Or a crazy idea?

      Have you seen how ugly she is? Have you seen how rediculous she acts? Who would take her seriously about anything. OPRAH would have a better chance and I wouldn't vote for her either.

        Why does her physical appearance have to effect her leadership abilities? I agree she is rediculous but her looks shouldn't mean anything.

          I think he was cynically pointing out that voters are actually swayed by physical appearance, which is probably right. Either that or it was a jab at her personality?

          I wouldn't be too broken-hearted to see political parties abolished, to be honest, but it's hard to get partisan support for something like that.

            I thought maybe he was speaking about her personality as ugly but it wasn't post so clearly so I wasn't sure. reguardless.....it just struck me as an odd comment.

      Government by ordinary citizen? If she's ordinary, I'm a rock star.

      Will people brush her off as a kook? I sure as hell hope so.

        lol Good one. I do have a great sense of humor but not the incredible comedic timing of Barr. I really like her as a celebrity and personality and respect her comedic genius. When I said people should take her as a kook, I guess I meant it in a good way because she's made her career out of being funny. Same with her being ordinary. She's far from ordinary, IMO. Wealthy, celebrity. But maybe because of who she is inherently, she may relate better to us.

        She's not really presidential material, though, and even she knows this. That's not to say she can't learn for the future.

        Only becasue she is a celebrity in the 1st place, imo...but there is still a real hard-core base of true rebels.

          It really would be great to have a president who can see through all the BS and find a genius way of solving things. Just don't think she's quite ready for prime time, though I like her personally.

    A government of ordinary people. No professional politicians? WOW!!! That would be a great thing to behold.

    I believe a government by ordinary citizens is what the framers of this country intended and it's not a crazy idea in the least, LMC. Unfortunately, we, the American people, have allowed it to become what it is today by our apathy towards it.

    As for Rosanne, I can only decide on her qualifications based on what has been in the media and, frankly, I wouldn't vote for her.

      Take a little wisdom from the millions of people with AIDS that would be dead if it wasn't for this simple phrase "Apathy = Death" Hubbers; you have the strongest weapon ever created. Put on your biggest thinking helmets and hard sole shoes.  Get out there on the WEB!  Find the teabagger site and disrupt them the best way you know how; with you words.  Slap these bugs down so hard with the power of your words so hard they won't have the time to think up complicated hate material in their little bug minds.  Until today, this was my fovorite pass time because there is so many really smart people here.  Find their roach nests (Fox News, CBS blogs, Limbaughs nest and let his listeners hear some counter arguments to the bile he preaches.  Thats how you step on them. With words of decency and challenge the justification of their twisted logic. A race war is not going to happen. They're just teaching the young people how to hate.  Don't you hubber let them get away with it. 

      Just look at what they are doing!  Please dont go back to word games or fill in the blank forums. Fight these people in the forums that what to destroy Black's self confidence and paraylize them with hate & fear. I even have a better idea for you.  Get in their faces on Fox, Hannity, and Limbaugh and make them defend some of the hateful racist comments they make that are geared towords young people they want to influence.  Ask them to justify the sticker in some way.  Ask them who could let a site and sticker like that exist and proudly displayed in public.  Find out if they have any soul or sense of conscience.

        They should know this. It's no joke. And i'm with you...be vocal.

    I find it very interesting...the whole idea. And being female, I like her ideas automatically...

    Grandmother's Council: like they used to have in Native American cultures!!

    Wise women, and Wise men....not old geezers that we don't want to pay for *hint* *hint*!

    Plus, the whole idea of recruiting ordinary citizens...asking their advice, people to people.

    It's opening my mind.

      310,000,000 Americans, each with their own opinion?  That could be scary.

      The Native American cultures idea I like as well. I've studied their culture and this country would do well to learn and understand their ways. It would simplify a lot of things.

        That's a grand legacy for us to call on as Americans.

          I know the Cherokee were considered the most "advanced" since they had their own alphabet and written language.

          Unfortunately, the Native Americans were pushed aside for the most part as nothing more than 'savages.' The white man, in his arrogance, didn't care that they could have learned much from their great culture, if they'd only taken the time to do so.

            It's really hard to say. Although they're romanticized, and probably rightly so to a large degree, they also killed off another tribe to monopolize the fur trade with the French and Dutch. I'm just saying people groups have done the same things for years. Today it's on a grander scale. The best we can hope for is that we all use our powers of 'best we can be' and 'forgiveness' and 'understanding our neighbor'. That's the only way to a better world.

      Rosanne is a loud mouth, always has been, always will be. I have never liked the woman. I would have a very hard time listening to her give a "Stste of the Nation" speech. She has a very strange approach to politics. She is at least standing up for something different, and "some" of her ideas aren't all that bad. What makes her any worse than these other politicians? They are all a bunch of jerks, and no matter who we put in office, we will still be up a creek without a paddle. Even though I feel the worst thing we can do is put Obama back in office. But hey, nobody would listen to me the first time either. Think about it, really, what more harm could it do to put someone completely different in office? They're all idiots, even Rosanne, so what difference would it make? My opinion, Greg

    "A Ron Paul Conspiracy Theory

    by mistermix

    Usually Paulist conspiracy theorists are inside the tent fading out, but Mark Ames gives Paul a rubbing in his new piece in The Exiled (via). The elements of his case are that Ron Paul’s SuperPAC is headquartered in Salt Lake City, one of the founders is Jon Huntman Sr’s business partner, and the main contributor to that PAC runs a major defense contractor and supports a lot of candidates who are anathema to Paul’s principles. I don’t know if he’s right that there’s some Mormon collusion involved in Paul’s SuperPAC, but he’s right about this:

    That might raise some potentially disturbing possibilities to a journalist or editor still interested in chasing down disturbing details and stories. Which probably explains why the media hacks aren’t interested in pursuing this possible angle, even though it’s staring them in the face. Instead, they’re trotting out a catalogue of fatuous “explanations” for the love-fest between Dr. Paul and Mitt Romney—explanations which have almost nothing to do with money and sleaze in politics, and everything to do with how Tiger Beat magazine might approach this election campaign.

    Ron Paul isn’t giving Mitt Romney a pass in the debates because Ann Romney and Carol Paul are friends (as the Times would have us believe). He might be doing it in hopes of cleaving off Santorum and Gingrich to make it a two man race, but I don’t buy that, simply because both of those guys have done well enough in the race that they’re staying around no matter how many times Paul calls them “fake”. Being a paid stalking horse sounds a lot more plausible to me."

    Will a Romney endorsement come?
