Welcome to the Beer Party

Rate: 0 Flag

Yes, it’s almost election time again when we must grit our teeth and vote for the lesser of two evils. We can vote for the wishy-washy tax-and-spend Democrats or we can vote for the tax-break-and-spend-even-more (we flunked economics) Republicans. Either way we’ll have another pretty face in a suit to not represent us in congress. Just once I’d like to have a Mr. Smith, a guy likely to pull up a bar stool next you, in Washington. Instead we’ll have just another corporate drone—you know the kind that visits your workplace periodically and tells you “you’re just going to have to do more with less (the shareholders want a bigger dividend).”

 

I say the time is ripe for a third party. Forget the liberal agenda and the conservative principle; it’s time for a little common sense in government. We need a party that looks out for the American worker. A party committed to the middle class in more than just lip service. We need a new organization called the Beer Party.

 

Now I’m not the smartest monkey on the block. I am neither policy wonk nor political strategist. But it seems to me, the same code that rules the corner tavern could certainly rule the country. The Beer Party platform, such as it is, would be all races, creeds, genders and religions-- liberals and conservatives--are welcome to the party. After you’ve put in an honest day’s work, you’re allowed the pursuit of happiness, but you must dance with who brought you, not start any fights, and pay your fair share of the tab at the end of the night.

 

Oh, and see that sign over the bar? It reads NO SNIVELING.
