In doing a search for the No Labels Movement...I found one thread from a year ago
No Labels! - The New Political Movement of the SIlent Majority

Not only is this group silent, but it is seemingly one of the best kept secrets in politics!!!!

And you can see why....here's a group who wants to work together for the good of the country, by-passing political shenanigans and actually trying to avoid gridlock....
No Labels enters new era by shedding ‘centrist’ image

“No Labels,” an organization formed in 2010 by a handful of well-connected but disenchanted political activists to encourage problem solving over ideological gridlock.



"It’s not about centrism, it’s about a new attitude toward the realities we face. It’s about finding Democrats and Republicans who will check their egos at the door,” said Huntsman, whose decidedly centrist run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination flamed out early in the primary process.

Huntsman and Manchin will be among the marquee speakers at “A Meeting to Make America Work!” the group’s conference in New York on Monday. Others include newly elected Maine Independent Sen. Angus King; Newark, New Jersey Mayor and Democratic Senate candidate Cory Booker; and Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller, who will address the group by video. Former President Bill Clinton and Arizona Sen. John McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, will send taped messages.

Sounds like something worth while....an idea whose time has come.
Whether it can thrive and become productive is anyone's guess.

Is there hope for politics in the US after all?

Actually, I did NOT find it...it found me as it somehow ending up the lead piece on myYahoo page awhile ago.....and if you blink...it's gone.


...and regardless of those involved, it might be a good idea...because it's obvious the MSM is ignoring it

The way I see it is the the "No Labels" folk are still politicians.

Hence, there is still a agenda of some sorts.

But, if the agenda is to get things done....to by-pass grid-lock, pork, and.....dare we hope....lobbyists....can that be a bad thing????

I mean, doesn't everything and everyone have some sort of agenda

When you get NWO shills addressing the initial start up meeting id guess its just another ploy.....

They start a THIRD party.....whod have guessed?

True, but whenever I see a politician saying something that makes sense...I have to cock a eyebrow.

Most are lawyers...I don't trust 'em.

There may be a flicker of hope here, but obviously the American people are going to be suspicious of an NGO, think tank, movement, etc, regardless of their expressed intent.

Especially when past and current players are involved.

Is this altruistic, or is there an angle?

We have every right to look for the angle, at least until they prove their salt.

Either way, thanks for sharing this.

I'm inclined to agree with you. It sounds good but so did the Tea party, then certain politicians worm their way in and things begin changing. Worth keeping an eye on and maybe better than either major party atm

I think your post kind of highlights the problem. We all see our personal ideologies as simply "the truth" and the ideologies of everyone else as their "agenda's".

We have all been lied to, manipulated and spat upon so often by our leaders, that a genuine attempt at coming together is nearly impossible.

If someone with enough notoriety to get a movement noticed get's involved, they have already been labeled. If someone unknown tries to get something positive going, nobody will notice.

The solution to this partisan travesty goes to the roots of our system and how we choose our leaders. The very process that places them in office guarantees they will be corrupt if they actually win. How we get beyond that I can't imagine.

With those of us who are moderate and who consider both sides of issues only making up less than half the population, the partisans have all the power. People say they are for an end to gridlock and that they want leaders who can compromise, but do they truly mean that? *Me included*.

I think it's a great idea, but they are going to have to find a way to redirect the river of financial contributions and political interests groups that dictate the current behavior in Washington.

Unfortunately, common sense is trumped by dollars.

I really like John Huntsman, Joe Manchin and especially Mark McKinnon. McKinnon has so many keen insights into what's hurting the GOP...his Op-Ed last week about gun control and the GOP was great. And, well, Manchin was really one of the post-Sandy Hook heroes IMHO...standing up to say *something* needs to be done about rampant gun violence was VERY brave.

This No Label a movement seems promising...if can it can catch fire...

Good post and thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I like you hadn't heard of it but maybe we need secrecy to combat their secret maneuvers.
If it's for that then I'm with it. Why do we need labels other than human being anyway? But could we really move legally against the one percent. Be worth checking into, couldn't be any worse or could it, power and money brings corruption But lord only knows both our parties are dysfunctional. .

You've got a bunch of establishment politicians "coming together" to solve problems? The majority of Congress right now consists of neocon republicans or left-of-center democrats, and a bunch of socialists. Whatever "gets done" will be some sort of compromise between those ideologies.

No. Thank. You.

If those are members, they already have their hooks into that movement already.

The Libertarian movement solves it for me. Less government. More freedom. That pretty much sums up what works for me. You can keep the career bureaucrats.

The late Prof Antony Sutton said the NWO is the synthesis of the Hegelian dialectic-neither right nor left. Politicians are getting better at hiding their treachery, every time the people catch on, they just change the label. This time it's the generic brand.

[Revelation 3:16

So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
