Are you one of the millions of Americans who feel that neither party represents your beliefs?
Do you feel as if you have no representation in Washington, and do you wish there was an alternative you could support in the future?
Did you stay home in 2012 rather than compromise your beliefs for the sake of voting for the lesser of two evils?
Do you believe that the Republicans and the Democrats are two sides of a rotten coin which needs to be removed from circulation?
If you are like me then the answer is yes, but where do we go from here? Well, myself and a group of several others decided that we have had enough of the usual politics and have taken it upon ourselves to create a new party which supports a return to the constitutional republic our founders envisioned with authority…

ESPN said that sources confirmed to the outlet that two drivers have been advised by their PR people not to conduct interviews in the Texas Motor Speedway media center in order to avoid the NRA logo from appearing behind them.
The move is just the latest in media hysteria that has resulted from the NRA sponsoring Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race, the NRA 500.
Earlier in the week Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy (D) urged Fox not to air the race in an attempt to demonize the NRA, which has been critical of some of the gun control measures that have cropped up in the wake of the Newtown massacre.
“This celebration of guns is inappropriate in the immediate wake of the Newtown massacre,” Murphy said in a statement. “But most importantly, broadcasting this race, which will highlight the NRA and its radical agenda during this time, sends a harmful signal to the families affected by gun violence, as well as the millions of Americans who support sensible gun control measures and enjoy your sports programming.”

(Warning: This article contains details of a graphic nature concerning abortions and may disturb some readers.)
The empty chairs tell the story: It may be the most horrifying abortion story in history – but the mainstream media are nowhere in sight.
The networks and the major newspapers are ignoring the murder trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell in a Philadelphia courtroom.
A grand jury report said Gosnell “regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.”
Revelations made in testimony have only gotten worse since the trial began last month, but you won’t see it on network television.
A picture of the empty chairs reserved for media was taken by J.D. Mullane of the Bucks County Courier Times. He tweeted, “Sat through a full day of testimony at the Kermit Gosnell trial today. It is beyond the most morbid Hollywood horror. It will change you.”
Mullane added, “Local press was there, Inky, PhillyMag, NBC 10 blogger. Court staff told me nobody else has shown up.”
How morbid is the trial evidence? Former employee Stephen Massof testified last week about how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.”
He also said, when women were given medicine to hasten deliveries, “[I]t would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.”
Masof pleaded guilty to third-degree murder in the deaths of two newborns and is now testifying against the 72-year-old Gosnell, who is charged with killing a woman and seven babies.
Fox News commentator Kristen Powers, generally considered a liberal, deplored the media blackout.

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of former White House Chief of Staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, was interviewed this week on the implementation of Obamacare. Ezekiel, a health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of the Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research, says the only way to reduce costs is to move to a program that rewards volume over “volume over value and quantity over quality.”
Med-Page Today reported, via Free Republic:
Doctors are the only people who can drive the change in healthcare delivery that’s needed to save the country from a financial crisis, a health policy expert said here.
Ezekiel Emanuel, MD, PhD, chair of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, called physicians the most important group in determining the future of the U.S., because others who have tried to incite health delivery reform have run into a brick wall when doctors weren’t on board.
“I can sit up here and talk all about it. Other experts can talk about it. Only you can put it into practice,” Emanuel said at the opening ceremony here at the annual meeting of the American College of Physicians. “You don’t do, it ain’t gonna happen. It’s that simple.”
