• Purple People Vote Iran Focus

    As the main stream media's focus drifts away from Iran, the internet has become the predominant source for news out of Iran. As this is still an active news story, PurplePeopleVote.com will be focusing on events and news stories coming out of Iran. This is a major news story, as well as historic event. We hope that individuals will press media outlets to cover these events, and not let the stories of those who are peacefully fighting for their freedom be forgotten just because information is becoming more difficult to gather.

    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, or looking for a centrist's perspective.

    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.
