Duck! and Gather

Archive for September 28th, 2006

My last two blog postings discuss the pathetic Democrats and the soon-to-be-loser Republicans. Each of those postings referred to a specific prediction I am making about each of those parties. This posting finishes up with my political predictions by addressing the Far Left Meets Far Right prediction.

Now, on pages 43-48 of my essay Long Tail Rising, I indicate that Far Left in America is represented politically by the Greens; Far Right, by the Libertarians. So I was going to use this posting to report on increased chatter around the Internet about a possible Green-Libertarian merger.

But tonight, while looking for that, I stumbled across Wikipedia’s page for Green libertarianism. That page includes a link to a site called “Green-Libertarian Philosophy.” Aside from some philosophy, that site includes a “support” page indicating that these people are scouting out the idea of a new American political party based on a merger between the Greens and Libertarians. They want to hear what people think of the idea.

Here’s what I think: Sign me up!

Well, odds are that these are some pretty weird people. But hey, since my friends think I’m weird anyway, where’s the conflict?

for the money has gone too far
