Default A quote from 1944...

Received this email from a friend earlier today, thought it was worth passing along:

A quote from 1944...



If you aren't scared, you're NOT LISTENING.

What's even scarier is that Democrats aren't even afraid to refer to themselves as Socialists, Communists or Progressives anymore. That just shows how far we have fallen.

No, we have many different political parties, it's just that the Republican and Democrat parties are the largest and most successful at this point in time (which hasn't always been the case). We even have American Communist and American Nazi parties. It's just that the "third parties" almost never get enough votes to actually make it into the higher offices.

Here's a listing of many of America's political parties with a short description of their basic platform:

ohh...so its much like ours then

We have three main parties, one of which can never truely gain power, power shifts between the other two. Then a gazzillion smaller parties. Some so small they dont have any representation in Westminster at all...they just might be on various councils around the country.

I realized that you had a few independants, and a few State Soverignty Parties at State level...but I didnt realize you had the rest

Thats incredible...so you have a Labour Party

We have a Labour Party to...they've been in power solidly for nearly 12 years now

I notice you dont have a "monster Raving Looney Party" though We have one of those...dont ask me what they stand for

I'm gonna read them all later and tell you, If I had to choose a third party, which one I would choose and why

Oh and you have Two Nazi Parties. The Nazi...and the Green Nazi....LMAO...Nazi people who want to look after the Environment?? How bizzare.

Here is a weird piece of trivia: If you follow the link and look at the different "third" parties you will see the American Independent Party and a picture of John G. Schmitz. Schmitz is the father of Mary Kay Latourneau, the kooky schoolteacher that slept with her underage student and had children with him.

No to the Green Party/Assoc of State Greens
Definately NO to Libertarians...thats sounds bloody worse then Communism!
No to the America First Party to far Right for me
No to the American Party because I'd need to fully understand the impact of their trade and industry views
No to American Independent Party, its to racist for me
No to American Nazi Party its too far right for me
No to American Reform Party, if they cant run themselves they cant run the country
No to the Freedom Socialist Party...Femenism at its most twee
No to The Greens...Socialism and Green Issues...I dont think so
No to Labour...had enough of them in my own country
No to the Light party...they have no place in politics
No to National Socialist Movement...that arent Socialist if they hang with Nazi
No to the Objectivist Party...its just not practical
No to party for socialism and liberation...that kinda revolution would distroy American Imperialism
No to Peace and Freedom party...sounds like a load of hippies to me
No to Social Democrats...sounds like they've died a death anyway
no to Socialist party....probably to left for me, dispite what it says
No to Socialist Action, socialist equality, socialist labourand socialist worker. They all sound centrist enough in some areas...but put into practise they would end up communistic, to far left for me
No to US Marijuana...I dont do drugs.
No to the US Pacifists...I might be pacifistic...but they plan on basically distorying the working military...wont work.
No to Workers World...that truely must be communism
No to Democratic Socialists of America.
No to the Nazi Green Party...thats just a vulgar mix aint it
No to Pansexual...Honnestly...a political group about Sex...WTF
No to Progressive Labour...sounds to militant
No to Revolutionary Communism, to far left for me
No to Workers party, and no to world socialist party


The Third Party



Working Families Party is the only Socialistic party I might consider. The Independance Party needs a proper heirachy before it can be considered, Not sure about the Boston Tea Party I'm undecided about the Whig party, it depends exactly what Military Centrism actually is. I could be interested in the Prohibition Party if I knew more about it. Dont know about the Reform Party. The American Patriot Party, if they ever actually put forward candidates.

Well the constitution party doesnt seem so bad. Americas Independant Party sounds a hopeful also. Independant American Party also I think has potential Veterans Party of America is also in with a chance
