President Bush lies to us about WMD's to lead us to war, lies to us
after saying, "We have found the WMD's." It's enough to make
you want to become a Democrat, right?
Wait a second there.
Former President Bill Clinton comes out to say on Larry King live
that we should all let President Bush's lying go. The
Democrats' Mr. "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman,"
wants us to cut the Republicans Mr. "We have found the WMD's," a
Republicans, led by an ambitious millionaire with a sordid past, try
to buy themselves a new election just months after a free and fair
election re-elected Democratic governor Grey Davis.
So, the Republicans
suck and the Democrats are the party to go with, right?
Not so fast.
California Democrats, who have been accusing the Cal. Republicans of
stalling the budget process for the sake of helping the recall
effort, get caught on an accidentally open mic talking about their
plan to stall the budget to help their chances in the next election.
For years, many of the
good people of this country have been so disgusted with both parties
that they opt out. They stop following things, stop voting,
assert that both sides are terrible so there is no point in
The entire purpose of
The Moderate Independent is to cut through all of that and deal with
the reality that if the good people of this country don't get
involved because there are bad people on either side of the aisle,
only bad or uniformed people will decide who runs things.
The Democrats have
liars in their party, the Republicans have liars, too. Some
Democrats point the finger one way while committing the same offense
themselves; Republicans as well.
But there are also
people of both parties, independents, and "third" party candidates
who are good people and deserve your support.
By being a truly
independent news source, we can help you to condemn those on both
sides who deserve to be condemned, and come to know who it is that
seems to be worthy of your support.
Jefferson was the founder of the Democrats, Abraham Lincoln was the
founder of the Republicans. There are good people right now
within each party, and outside the parties, good, truly independent
representatives like Senator Jeffords (I-VT), trustworthy veterans
like Senator McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Kerry (D-MA) on either side
of the aisle.
And just today there
was a beautiful, extremely important act of bipartisanship, when the
House of Reps voted 400 to 21 in favor of a bill that in part
reverses a recent FCC ruling that would have let media tycoons like
Rupert Murdoch own enough TV stations to reach 45% of America
directly. The number will be kept at 35%, thanks to this
President Bush, showing
his true colors once again as a right-wing, anti-freedom extremist,
has said he will veto the bill. Enough to make you want to
become a Democrat.
However, hundreds of
Republicans voted with their colleagues on the Democratic side of
the aisle to reverse the FCC ruling anyway. Makes you want to
stay open to considering Republicans.
Independent exists to fill the void. Finally, there is a
completely independent, non-partisan voice. Keep reading, and
we can continue to cut through the bull together, and show you that
there is a point to staying informed and casting your vote. In
fact, it is imperative.
