Why Are There Virtually No Independent Members Of Congress?Submitted by pawnstorm12 on Thu, 07/25/2013 - 03:18
I can't find any in the House and only 2 in the Senate (although Bernie Sanders calls himself a "Democratic Socialist" so he doesn't count).
Political parties have RUINED this nation.
That's because blind loyalty to party causes voters to look past the mischief their elected officials (in their party of choice) get away with.
As long as "their man' or "their woman" holds office, they are mum on issues.
Just listen to the rat talking heads like Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Levin, Beck and the like.
Under Bush we lost more liberties than since FDR. But not a WORD about it by the right wing media because "their man" was the president.
Same with Obama. Where was all the anti-war outrage on the left when he upped the troop levels in Afghanistan and attacked Lybia?
WE NEED INDEPENDENTS - not affiliated with ANY party to run for office.
I'm not talking about Libertarians, or Green Party, or ANY other political party because they all will devolve into party-first, country-second organizations.
How about NO PARTY ala George Washington???
