Joe Hutchison is one of many Americans recently abandoned by their
political party. A citizen refugee. A lifelong Democrat that has
recoiled in horror from the gestapo policies and direction that party
has taken. But a man that equally fears the complacency and loss of
touch with the working class poor that has besieged the Republican
party. There are many of us now and our ranks are growing. The
Libertarian and Tea parties attest to this. But these are still fringe
movements, and to invest too heavily, and so early in these risks
exclusion from the political process at a time when our country needs
us the most. An educated, devout patriot, a master of history and the
obvious, Hutchison does not wish to recuse himself from the political
process. But the current two-party system is broken beyond repair.
There has to be a better way. WE, the real Americans, will seek it here
in the last open and free venue - the Internet.
