Now, anyone with even a portion of logic in their minds knows that absolutes are for mathematical formulas... not real life. Factor out those who are from the class of mega-millionaire$, and the rest of us here in good ole' Americka are simply working stiffs.

If you either work for your income or wish you could, or are retired from such things, you are a working stiff. Again, anyone who earns less than a $million per year is welcomed into my political tent. My ideas will not please both Marxists and Libertarians, but it can and should rally most of you out there.

Let's realize that in today's world of hype and spin, words and phrases matter. To consolidate lots of working stiffs from various backgrounds, we shall name this new political party "The Small Business/Labor Party". We need to disassociate small business owners (I know you Marxists think little of these "Petit Bourgeois" folks) from those who run our big corporations.

Small business must be the backbone of American commerce, and it sadly is not! In reality, small business owners and managers have the same needs and desires as those who labor for others, private or public. We all are getting screwed by this Corporate-Military-Industrial-Empire.

If small business owners and managers can peel away from supporting the Republicans or Independent Conservative movements, and realize that they are just working stiffs at heart... change can begin. If those working stiffs who work for others can realize that small business owners have the same fears for economic demise as them... a merger can occur.

A Small Business/Labor Party will, like all political parties, have an extensive platform. This writer understands it would take literally a book to cover them all. So, let's mention but a few major points of interest:
