With the Presidential election a scant 4 months and change away, many voters of all persuasions feel trapped. Given the two prospective nominees of the major parties, what other option is truly on the table? The hard truth of the matter is that there are no good options, which is why it is time for a new politics, a new party, one that starts anew free from all the corruption and rent-seeking of the current political system. What we need is a non-party.
This new party, dubbed the Misanthropic Individualists Seeking Freedom from Institutionalized Tyranny (MISFITs), is not a party. There is no membership list. There are no fundraisers. We don’t have conventions or meetings or stupid looking hats with simplistic slogans. We don’t want you to join. As a matter of fact, you can’t join because there’s nothing to join. We do, however, have a platform. Sort of.
Some items in our sort-of-a-platform may strike some people as counterintuitive, even hypocritical. To this we say: so what? We aren’t interested in your opinion. It isn’t like we’re asking for your money.
The MISFITs sort-of-platform is not subject to change. Or it is, we frankly don’t care. As a non-party we are not asking for your vote. But if November rolls around and you’re feeling stuck between a rock and a couple of corrupt authoritarian morons, think of Bob. His pocket Constitution will be ready.
Just a gaggle of people from all over who have similar interests and loud opinions mixed with a dose of humor. We met on Twitter.
