Reform Party Rebuilding: Calls War on Terror a "Lousy Idea"


digg.com

The 'War on Terror' is a Neoconservative concept that frankly was pretty lousy from the start,” said Collison. “There are only a limited number of situations where military force (the War part of that ideology) is useful to prevent terrorism. Our general opinion is that it was a political tool used by the [Neo-conservatives] to further their extreme interventionist foreign policy.”

Well, the Reform Party, best known for Ross Perot and Jesse Ventura, is back. They are working at rebuilding, and apparently, plan on being critical of the so-called "WAR ON TERROR." Collison, head of the national party, voices his idea it was "lousy."
So, do you think the REFORM PARTY will be success at rising from the dead? Perot received 19% of the vote in 1992 and almost 9% in 1996. Jesse Ventura won the Governorship on their ticket. Nader ran for them, too. So....will this be the third party that saves us? They are less-extreme Libertarians, as it is said in the article.

Good luck to them, the American body politic sorely needs new blood.

Collison is night - the war on terror was a stupid idea.

Generally when the .gov declares war on a generic noun, be it drugs or poverty or terror, you can guarantee it will prove to be a failure.

I really hope they get back on their feet. Whne they were founded in 1996, they were based on Libertarian ideals: a less extreme version of the Libertarian party. But look what they had become by 2000:

Would be nice to see a movement that sees past the lies current politics constantly spews. Sadly i don't think much will come of it, i think the current powers have enough measures in place to keep their positions.

Good luck to them though.
