I’ve read several comments with people discussing how we need more outreach and more recognition.  I think a motto, or a slogan, a catchphrase if you will, that summarizes our group’s ideals would…Read more →

‘Let’s Talk about What We’re Actually Talking About’

Posted on December 24, 2014 at 5:11pm 0 Comments

Too bad Congress actually doing something is nearly as bad as Congress doing nothing.

Since I find myself split astride both parties, like many others around the country, I think it’s high time a viable third option be created. I began dreaming of what I would like to name this future third party and ‘Citizen’ really rang true.
