A down to earth possibility is on its way and will potentially be here to stay and that is what the numbers say. Does this sound a little like Dr. Seuss? Well most NPA voters with a few Democrats and a few Republicans would rather vote for Dr. Seuss than who is thrown a the voter each election cycle. The rich and the powerful or the super elite put their Candidate in for election so that super power can have control of the government and the people suffer every time. It could be the Phosphate mines causing unknown amounts of cancer through the tracks and trails that the mining by-products run down from Polk County and south to the Bacterial poisoning via Lake Okeechobee from more ‘unknown’ corporate sources or deep well reconstituted water injection that mother Nature and Dr. Seuss would cry about if they had the ‘power’ given to them from the elite. No Party Affiliates see the BIG Picture that is why there was only 800,000 in 1995 and 2.2 Million in 2005 and now 3.5 Million in 2018 which is a short distance from the 4.5 Million Republicans and the 4.8 Million Democrats in Florida. Now more than ever our eyes are wide open. The Environmental Democrats have not seen any action from their party including US Senator Bill Nelson in over 25 years and many of them have lost faith in their party and their true environmental efforts. Republicans do believe in the need for clean water and have seen their party not doing a thing about it, especially under Gov. Rick Scott and US Senator Marco Rubio. The Party fighting and then the party in-fighting was never supposed to happen under the US Constitution.
“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”
If John Adams saw this coming, we the people can see with leadership under a NPA banner, our State and country can pull itself together.
And What About the Primaries? In Florida the Primaries belong to ‘the parties’. NPA voter is not allowed in their club. But if 2022 rolled in with 4.3 Million NPA and Republicans are 4.2 Million and Democrats are 4.5 Million; Isn’t the NPA part of the Majority. Would there be a reason to put the NPA in the primary or just eliminate the Primaries or the most logical choice with our standing statutes, ‘open Primaries’, which NPA has wanted for years or decades and would be minor changes in our state division of election statutes. Shall we talk about the election problems with our current system? To Be Continued….
