"The human race has only one really effectiveweapon and that is laughter." –Mark Twain
Lacking anything else, perhaps only humor at this point can deliver us from our pathetic and corrupted two party political system. "There are some things so serious, you have to laugh at them," once quipped the Nobel Prize-winning quantum physicist Niels Bohr. So be Lebowski, and our new third party.
Sadly, and especially since the infamous year of 1913, we have allowed ourselves to be had by a certain sort of Ineptocracy, whereby the least likely to lead are elected by the least likely to produce. For the sake of the whole brevity thing, let's just say the resulting institutional shadows so painfully plaguing our fruited plains today are as inevitable as white on rice.
So are their remedies.
The question is, how much longer are we going to sit back and allow our beloved American experiment to be hijacked by these human paraquats?
The extent to which we have allowed ourselves be duped the "Republican" and "Democrat" duopoly is so pervasive that we are almost entirely blind to it today. Face it, continuing to let evolved souls like James Carville and Karl Rove distract us from what matters most is very un-Dude.
Hence, the four-pronged Lebowski Party Plan to the rescue:
2) Abolish the 16th Amendment (ratified in 1913 creating the Income Tax) / Enact the Resource Dividend first outlined way back in 1879.
3) Repeal the Reapportionment Act of 1929 to return to the 1:30,000 representation to population ratio clearly stated in Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution, taking back control of our House of Representatives.
4) Require character transparency from our public "leaders" as part of the electoral process via the tools developing in Faustomics and AP76 so we can once more dig the way they do business.
