3rd Party?

With the discussion about Libertarianism that has taken place in my first post, I thought that I would post a link to a site that I found.  It will give your “ideal party” at the end.  Leave me some feedback and let me know what it said you were and your thoughts on it.

Greetings!

Hello and welcome to the State of Franklin Blog.  I am Elihu Embree, but you can call me Elihu, EE, or E.  If you want, you can research the name Elihu Embree using a simple Google search; however, he was the creator of The Emancipator, which was the first abolitionist newspaper in the United States, which just happened to be printed in Jonesboro.  I plan to further his legacy of attacking current social ills peppered with just discussion of current and historical events, especially in what I will refer to as the State of Franklin. 

As a credibility builder, I will debrief you on my prejudices.  I am extremely Conservative on many, if not most, issues.  I do take a Libertarian approach to many things in the political realm from time to time.  I simply despise the militant pro-abortion crowd that actually seems more pro-abortion than pro-choice.  Very rarely will you hear me refer to them as being pro-choice, because I do not feel that they are.  The ones who place themselves out there, generally are more pro-abortion.  I dislike the two-party system.  It has allowed us as a nation to come to a point where there are few differences between our governmental leaders.  I long for a day when we have a multi-party system where we can vote for a candidate who truly fits our belief system, and we can feel good about it, because we are not made to feel that we are wasting a vote. 

 Our state, Tennessee, has a great history, much of which has taken place in the area known as the “Lost State of Franklin.”  Many of us have heard the adage that Tennessee ends at Knoxville.  Well, the last time I checked, politicians in statewide elections generally win or lose, depending on whether they carry East Tennessee, much of which is East of Knoxville.  I may or may not be a spokesperson of the majority of our area, but I do want to provoke some thought for our area, and the entire state.  Heck, if you are not in Tennessee or in the United States, maybe I can still cause you to think.  I do wish to have your feedback and comments.  If it is not vulgar, I will post it.  I want this blog to be as family-friendly as possible.  If something will be questionable, I will make sure that there is a disclaimer.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will check back regularly.
