Third Party Politics Is Patient, Hard Work

Just like September of 2004, though mistakely then, I am giving the election administrators the benefit of the doubt that the vote count in this election is reasonably accurate.  In this case, a more than 100,000 vote margin between the incumbent and myself, in her favor, is insurmountable even in a postal mail election (unlike '04 in which there were both poll and mail voting), but I don't concede elections anymore until they are certified, at least. This election was a very high hurdle to jump, seeing that on the one hand several bloggers, some posing as journalists, used smears, distortions and outright lies in a propaganda campaign for the benefit of Ms. Huff. On the other hand, the Establishment ignored conventional protocols to give the public at large the impression that I wasn't worthy to be a candidate, with a big assist from the sleazy municipal league of King County. They are all part of the two-party dominance of politics in our nation that bends rules to make third-party or independent-commoner competition in politics an extremely uphill climb. In this and our other blogs, I have written about the ways in which the two parties are essentially corporate shills and sycophants, with imperial pretensions worldwide, feudal economics, being more internationalist than nationalist, and no environmental conciousness. Third party politics is hard work and very patient incrementalism.  This (politics) is about the heart of society and how it will be shaped, and political parties -- especially third parties -- have a duty to participate in elections and offer choices & alternatives. Next stop for "Commons": the election for lieutenant governor. If interested in joining the party or the next campaign, just send an e-mail or a note.  If applicable, thanks very much for your vote or support.
