A political party that is; a) for fiscal responsibility, b) strong defense [this is why I can’t hang with Libertarians], and c) and not social conservative.

Some returning veterans got together and re-established the Whig Party.  They’re a little heavy on veterans affairs.  I’m not real keen on giving up my citizenship for not being a veteran any more than giving it up to the conservatives for not being christian enough or giving it up to the Democrats for not have swam across the Rio Grande (yes Janet, there are illegals).

So I’m slinking around the Whig Party’s web site to see what I can see.


(update)  It’s later.

Been prowling around the Modern Whig web site.  Not unreasonable, but I’m not seeing plans for growth.  ‘Course it’s been the weekend and these people in charge may actually have lives outside of politics.  I’m not sensing professional hired staff, either…who still wouldn’t be working on the weekend.

    I thought you would find the following item of interest:

    The Florida Whig Party (FWP) is a political party in the State of Florida with ballot access since 2007. Florida is the first state with a Whig Party with ballot access since the 1800s. While there have been occasional candidates who have sought local, state, and federal office as Whigs from time-to-time, Florida remains the only state with an offical Whig Party as of November 2009. The Florida Whig Party is also the first Whig state political party to run candidates for federal office since the 1800s. Paul McKain was the first announced Whig candidate for federal office, followed then by a joint announcment by John Annarumma and Clayton Schock.

    The Party is expanding methodically across the State of Florida. The first online national meeting for all Whig clubs and development organizations was hosted by the FWP in early 2009 and attended by nearly 1,000 individuals from almost every state in the union and several overseas.

    I’ve been tracking the public Whig oriented sites (like the forums) but have not delved into the official site. My issue with the Whigs. I keep reading the “I want to be a Democrat Lite” like the RINO Republicans…which just gets you to Hell a little bit later. Middle of the road won’t save the Union. We need radical fiscal conservatism in government. The only way to pay our way out of the debt whole that has been created is to crank up the engines of industry like we haven’t seen in decades. Nothing else will do anything but delay the inevitable. Personally, I am leaning towards Tea Party. March in the streets with signs saying “Just STOP!” and “What part of NO don’t you understand”
