• Welcome Purple People

    To me Purple People are those of us who are neither Republican Red nor Democrat Blue; we find ourselves in between. The internet often represents those on the far left or the far right; this site is for those of us in the middle.

    Since there are a variety of non-conformists that consider themselves Independents, here's a clarification. The point of view of this blog is basically Realist/Libertarian light...

    -Pro Small Government, bureaucracies tend to be wasteful and inefficient.

    -Government should not be the morality police.

    -Less waste, lower taxes. Taxes are okay if spent wisely. Roads and schools need funding. Be smart with my money and I won't complain.

    -Government shouldn't babysit adults. Help kids and assist people who have serious problems, but stop trying to protect everyone from themselves.

    -Foreign policy should be conducted by people with brains and experience. Think, don't be reckless and don't be politically motivated. Remember that the U.S. is not the only country in the world.

    -Tone down the rhetoric and remember your manners. Play nicely and don't belittle people who disagree with you.

Are You Purple?

The McCain campaign has focussed on Independents and Democrats with their Citizens for McCain group. They have even set up an online phone bank specifically for Independents and Democrats. If you are Independent or Democrat McCain supporter this is a great way to help the campaign. Phone calls are instrumental in bringing in votes and getting supporters out to polls. Just a few (or more) a day can have an impact.

Daytime Calls Phone Bank 10:00AM -6:00PM (EST):

Evening and Weekend Calls Phone Bank 6:00PM -9:00PM (EST):

If you aren’t an Independent, but still want to make phone calls from home - www.JohnMcCain.com/PhoneBank

  2. geevil - I’m going to do my part. This man must be stopped. Now I’m hearing about the voter fraud that he is starting up in Ohio.

    People need to be aware of the situation.

    We will lose our Democracy if we dont’ stand up and fight this.

    “There’s been a lot of interest in what I read lately. Well, I was reading my copy of today’s New York Times and I was really interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago. Turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man who, according to The New York Times was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, ‘launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol.’ These are the same guys who think patriotism is paying higher taxes. This is not a man who sees America as you and I do - as the greatest force for good in the world. This is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country. This, ladies and gentlemen, has nothing to do with the kind of change anyone can believe in - not my kids and not your kids. The only man who can take on Washington is John McCain.”

  5. I was an Obama supporter since January, but now he leaves doubts in my mind. First he said his programs would be paid for from money saved from going to Iraq. But then he changed his mind about bringing that war to an end in 2009, and said it would be over 16 months. When he said 2009, I was told by a member of his staff he wanted the war to end by June 2009. So I guessed his programs wouldn’t start until April of 2010. That was okay, I could wait. But then he said he’d pay for the programs with the money from raising taxes on the wealthy, so I became more reassured. But along comes Joe the Plumber, and he said he wanted to spread the wealth around. That started to get me worried again, because what happens if the $250 thousand level has to be reduced? Then he said he just wants to bring the tax levels to Clinton’s. With no checks and balances in congress, Clinton enacted the highest middle class tax increase in history. We had to get a Republican congress to put the reins on Clinton.True, the economy was great during the second half of the Clinton years until he became a lame duck President, but he had the burgeoning Internet, which was the biggest factor in the booming economy. Barack doesn’t have anything like that, and without checks and balances in the congress, I fear my taxes will go up again. I’m starting to lean more toward McCain. Please show me where I’m wrong, I don’t want to end up voting for the wrong guy.

  6. I know when I voted, I didn’t fully understand, but after I voted, I realized that I had made a decision that didn’t support a strong America. When I voted, I realized I voted for someone who would “do it for me” where I don’t have to be responsible for myself. After I made that decision, I now know that I didn’t make a decision based on creating a strong America.

    I want a candidate in office that will support me being an entrepreneur, which is what this country was founded on. This country is not about having the government being responsible for you, its about being an entrepreneur. And that was what this country was founded on. I don’t agree with everything McCain does, and how he campaigned, but he does know a little bit more about being an American and what it means to be an entrepreneur. And that is what this country needs right now, just a little bit more of that. So if you haven’t voted yet, vote for the candidate who will support us in being responsible for ourselves. This country does depend on it.
