Mugwumps Rising

I’m a Mugwump. That is, a person who remains independent, especially refraining from party politics. Mugwumps abhor political machines and the stench of patronage spoils.

Both parties today (or the “permanent governing class,” as I call them) nominated unworthy candidates who will not get much done for Americans. Instead, they cater to lobbyists and party wingtips. They mouth “middle class,” but prefer to kindle class wars, rather than creating common ground.

I’m sick and tired of Republicans and Democrats presuming that they rule over us. Given the wealth that DC denizens take in during and after government jobs, greed and power-mongering explain their behavior. What explains ours?

Arise, Mugwumps! We have nothing to lose but the usual suspects.
