An Independent State
 

How the Deluded, Deranged Cult Members of Partisan Politics Are Destroying the Very Fabric of American Life - And What Sensible People Can Do to Fix It All

Authored by Dan Lynch

A DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE BY AMERICA'S INDEPENDENTS The most important story of the 2012 presidential campaign wasn't the re-election of Barack Obama. It wasn't the Republicans retaining control of the House of Representatives or the Democrats holding on to the U. S. Senate. It wasn't several states essentially legalizing marijuana and gay marriage. Instead, it was the surging swarm of defections from each major political party by frustrated, fed-up Americans appalled by the parties' blind, vicious partisanship and by the way the party operatives mangle the truth to mislead voters. The big story of the election was that it marked the beginning of the emergence of free-thinking independents as the dominant force in American politics, which is just how George Washington, James Madison and the other Framers wanted us to conduct democracy's business. That's the point of An Independent State: How the Deluded, Deranged Cult Members of Partisan Politics Are Destroying the Very Fabric of American Life - And What Sensible People Can Do to Fix It All.
