Um, no I'm laughing at you for your asinine suggestion. If you think the democrats are going to make any effort to stop corruption from banks, corporations, and lobbyists, you have your head stuck in the sand.

I think our party will be identified by our platform, the values of our membership and our struggle against the two-party system.  If someone does not want to work with us because we profess a desire to work with others then fine go back to your corner and shout from the sidelines.  I joined the Justice party to fight for Justice not definitions in a dictionary. I am sure that if we do not try, we will fail.

@ViolentKnight:  All I said is that if what you really want is a populist party, the Democrats are there for you already.  Why do you want to re-create the wheel, the broken wheel, the wheel that has proven repeatedly does not and cannot work!  Why do you want a populist party if you can see that populism doesn't work?   How is that an assinine suggestion?

@Mcamelyne:  So you will fight for Justice, "whatever that means."  You are equivocating because you refuse to define what you are really fighting for.  It sounds foolish, and I won't have any part of foolishness.   I want to know, appositively, exactly what the hell I am fighting for if I am to fight for it.  Partial equality is not equality at all, and is by definition (that word that frightens you?), not possible.

You say populism does not work, yet registered Democrats represent the largest single group of registered voters.

'An estimated 201.5 million U.S. citizens age 18 or over will be eligible to vote Nov. 2, although many are not now registered. Of these, about 55 million are registered Republicans. About 72 million registered Democrats. About 42 million are registered as independents, under some other minor party or with a "No Party" designation.'

Where is this great groundswell of people that are going to come running to the party of equality?  Jill Stein received less than .5% of the vote and while people find socialism to be positive, they are not ready to vote for it.

I define Justice as one law for all Americans and an equal opportunity to succeed.  I do not define it as lowering the average so everyone can achieve the same outcome.
