shit from shinola beliefs
The Fifth Party is the party representing all of those who play nicely together.
We see a problem and recognize the solution involves building new and fun ways to solve the problem.
We stop to help each other along the path because it's more fun to travel with friends.
We share our jelly donuts and rootbeer (and beer) happily because there's always more where that came from. (Right, okjimm?)
We wear funny clothes and make our hair and faces look however we like because we know everybody's made of the same stuff underneath.
We all know we've had enough of the bad old ways:
The German press spent the weekend unraveling the meaning of Senator Obama's Berlin speech. This quote is from the left leaning Berliner Zeitung: "For Obama, as for John McCain, a militarily strong America forms the basis of all their foreign policy concepts. However, unlike the Republicans, Obama has two competing principles: maintaining the US's leading role and increasingly interweaving states in the aftermath of the Cold War."
"Obama makes no mention of fewer troops, agents or weapons. On the contrary, Obama does not follow any new theories that might lead to the end of the US's as the hegemonic power. Instead, his views harken back to the liberal interventionists of the '90s."
The world is crying out for the help of the Shit From Shinola Party. We need to work toward a shared vision with all the other people on our LittleBigPlanet this fall.
Now I have to go work on my new 10ft long silk scarf so I can use it as a tightrope if required.
