My daughter wants to start a new political party


Had a great birthday. The day started with a bright red bird (not a cardinal) flying in front of me and ended with hummingbirds around.

Dinner with my 27 year old daughter was special.

She's pissed because her generation isn't doing a whole lot to stop all this evil and nonsense in the world.

She wants to start a new political party...one based on integrity and global responsibility.

"I'm liberal on social justice...but kind of conservative when it comes to how far government ought to meddle with our lives," she said.

"Take the best of the Republicans, not their moralizing bullshit and affinity for war and oil companies, the best of the Democrats but not their special interest cronies, throw a little Ralph Nader in there...and that's my new political party I want to belong to," she added.

She's also very web savvy and has been trying to think of something that she could do via the web that would crystalize all the frustration she senses out there with the existing 2 party corrupt political structure that constantly sells us out to special interests.

One idea was the url impeachthepresident is for sale for $2100 and she posted a request on her blog to see if she could raise the money. Not a single response....

She's working on Plan B right now...so watch out world.

She talked about how there are many many really good groups working on the specifics...environment, social justice. etc...but no unifying identity that could link everyone up and toss all the slimeballs out of Congress in November.

She's a fighter for justice and a damned good musician and music writer.

My other daughter is somewhere in the Maine woods teaching music this summer. She's extremely unpolitical...but got excited about John McCain a few years ago...the integrity thing. But then McCain started pandering to the religious right...

so I have one daughter trying to turn the other daughter back on to politics by creating a new political party....

I thank God for being gifted with two Goddesses for daughters.

sign me up for her new political party! and has she visited moveon.org?

Yep. And she doesn't think too much about it. Too all over the place for her. This is a kid who grew up with politicians under foot...I used to be very active so there were all sorts of people visiting...now she does some freelancing for the Weekly....so she's very into political stuff...and is very frustated there's thousands of groups, but no one is really doing anything major and focused.

This is like getting rid of ants one at a time....
