The Gallup organization is reporting that a record 43% of Americans now describe themselves as Independent, more than any time since 1988. The same report indicates that both Democrats and Republicans have suffered as more people have become more independent, but the Democrats have been hurt worse that the Republicans, and this past fall, in a rare twist, more people favored Republicans than Democrats.


While the chart on the Gallup article is copyrighted, so we can't portray it here, it shows a steady drop in membership for both parties, so the Democrats now have 30% and the Republicans 26 percent. There have been times when the Democrats had a 12% differential.

I say GREAT!! (think of Tony the Tiger-- GRRRREAT!!) Let the percentages keep falling. Let the two party system die a death of attrition. And may third parties help to bring about the two party system's demise.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
