    Rise of the Green Tea Party

    And with secession also comes nullification.

    And so much for the idea that secession is an exclusive southern, redneck, racist right wingy-thingy!

    What happens if more and more folks on both the right and the left abandon the 2 party construct and even find each other as a worthy ally in cutting out the heart of the massive central state in Washington DC? What if they realize each as brothers in arms in shifting political, social, economic and cultural power back home to the local level?

    Don't look now but it is in fact happening!

    Here's a Gentleman in a neighboring New England State starting a New Part of his own, with a sort of Hybrid mix of ideas....

    FOREIGN POLICY: As one of the leaders in Congress in opposing the war in Iraq, I worry very much about the direction we appear to be going in Afghanistan. The last thing in the world we need is to get bogged down in Afghanistan in a never-ending war which causes the loss of more and more lives and more and more money. I will do my best to bring our troops home from both Iraq and Afghanistan as soon as possible.

    Not Ben & Jerry's, too much sugar ... I eat the low-carb (4 grams of carbs per 1/2 cup) by Breyers on occasion.

    Yeah, I know ... think I've had a quart all summer long and it lasted a couple of weeks.
    Sure was good though.

    What I find most interesting about Michael Feldmann is found in the comments section. Seems his description of himself has one reader in a pickle in that they have no idea how to pigeon hole him!

    I like that. :wink2:

    One thing I have always liked about Vermont's Switzerland-like reputation for cleanliness was their restrictions on signage.

    That explains why I get lost every time I go there and can never find a place to eat.

    Baba is talking about billboards.

    Vermont is a beautiful state but does not have the infrastructure to survive as a separate entity.

    Tourist... Having an assinine foriegn policy stance dictated by our Civilian Leadership does not make Patriotic dissenters anti-Military. In fact, it proves they care alot more for our Military for demanding them out of harms way for the mis-useful purpose of Pre-emptive attacks under false pretenses. Patriotic Dissenters don't need Sean Hannity type "Freedom Concerts" with red, white, and blue light shows, washed up Country Music Icons and washed up rockers such as Ted Nugent waving machine guns on stage to get simple minded people, pumped up with superficial patriotism...

    Leave the nuts alone, you guys have Fox News....a financial promoter and employer of the Republican Party...

    Could you and KoB please simplify your message so that those on the right can better understand? You know. Something like "don't retreat, reload" or "no victory mosque at ground zero" or "Obama's a socialist" or "no amnesty"? Nuance isn't something they seem big on.
