And I suddenly realized that what we really need is a revival of Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose Party. (Yeah, I know they are also known as Progressives, but that's not the same in today's world. I want a revival of the original stances of the Bull Moose folks, because I can get behind it.)
Here's what they stand for, ca. 1912:
A living minimum wage
Universal Health Care
Initiative and Referendum process (power to the people)
Government intervention to improve socioeconomic conditions
And the Piece de Resistance: "To destroy this invisible Government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day." - 1912 Progressive Party Platform, attributed to Theodore Roosevelt
My kind of party. So, now I wonder what I need to do to re-create it in today's society.
