Well, Ned Lamont did it. Athough some are predicting a Lieberman win anyway (thank you Karl Rove). But my question is.... Where are the independent, alternative, progressive candidates? Ya know, the ones who think like most Americans think. Who are in support of the average American. Who play to the Silent Majority (why are we silent by the way?)?

Well I found one, and am looking for more of them. They are not hiding, but they are being held hostage to our one party system. Yes I said one party. Who can still believe that the Democratic politicians or the Dem Party aren't really just pig snufflurking at the same genetically modified feed trough. And alternative candidates are are dismissed and marginalized by our favorite villian the MEDIA!

Anyhoo, I'm going (right now) to get a list of independent politicians who are running for office this year. Be right back......

Umm, well, just searched the net to get the names, and couldn't find anybody. Searched "independent candidates" "politician, independent" "3rd party candidates"
Nada, nothin', nope!

Sure, we can chalk it up to not enough money. But we all know that's not the real story. Unlimited funding might help, but could it make a winner? Or just be more of our (scarce) cash down the money pit? Like my $25 donation to Kerry which I would like back, thank you!

The real story is that you can never, ever, tell your child that they can grow up to be president someday. Nope, noway, nohow. Mr. Smith and his trip to Washington has been effectivly cancelled.

So, here's what I'm asking. Here in Florida we have Brian Moore for U.S. Senate (www.votebrianmoore.com) against the Nelson/Harris Duet, who have just about identical voting records. So who's running in YOUR state?

Can we even get a list together? Can we pass this along? Can we help these embattled politicians get a 20 second mention in ANY media format?

Ya'll know I'm pretty much a doom and gloom kinda gal. But the revolution I keep talking about would be helped considerably by these free from political slime candidates. These tilting at windmills, keepers of the flame, politicians. Who are they, Where are they?

If it's not over because the fat lady hasn't sung yet, well, you can bet she's warming up her vocal chords right now.

Here's the task. Independent Candidates, post a comment here post your link. Activists, comment on your 3rd party candidates, post their links. Political Operatives tell us about your candidate.

Democracy is at stake. And before long it will be a burning stake of our Constitution.
