The United Democratic Republicans

Washington spoke of unity many years ago.
Others said they supported the idea,
But political division has carried the day.

Presently, all unity has faded.
Like the reign of Julius Caesar,
Daggers are everywhere.

From these perilous times,
We can only hope for another Washington
To rescue us from our period of division.

A United Democratic Republican party could be this savior.
After all, most of us live in the middle,
Not on the fringes with the modern plebeians and patricians.

Perhaps, though, this is too much to hope for;
Our current political parties are too strong.
How could we change things now?

  1. Then don’t vote for those on the fringe. We can tell who they are… they are usually the mean ones.

  2. Never seen two parties so divided. The people forgotten and lost in the fight for power. Long for United Democratic Republicans.

  3. I think you need to get signatures for that. You know, to start a new party. What would be the platform?

    The only things I’ve seen in the middle are dead armadillos.

    IMHO… the two parties as the obverse & reverse of the same coin: heads they win, tails we lose. I think the problem IS the two-party system. If the party abhors ground-up democracy, they abhor the people. On that test, they’re indistinguishable.

  6. I wrote something that sounds related to this (but not really!)

    Red (state) sex is for girls; Blue is for boys?

    At least in this one area behavior is the same, even though attitude about it doesn’t match up.
