My Czech friends were very excited about Vladimir Franz's  presidential campaign there. I think we could learn a lot from this. If we, as the Justice Party, are going to make an impact or difference, we need to speak in plain honest terms. If we want people to care, we need to be ourselves, instead of pandering to the left, middle, or right (as they are currently defined) .

Is the JP "pandering" to the right or the middle?   My read of the JP platform leaves me with the most leftist agenda only.  So I am not sure what you are referring to.

PS  BTW, what the heck is the "middle?" -- there is no such thing.   It's left or right; know the enemy and work against it.

What I was trying to say was that we shouldn't be trying to get the same votes that the GOP & Democrats go after. Instead, we should be trying to get votes from those that normally don't vote in the first place. There isn't any voter apathy out there, just voter alienation.

Sorry, GX.  Still not following you.  How does your left-right-middle thingy come together with the Democrat-Republican thingy.

I think many are turned off by the labels and rhetoric of traditional politics. Few can actually relate. No matter what is actually being said, the traditional politician sounds dishonest, especially to those who don't vote. We need to find a different narrative to get to the hearts of the alienated voter.
