approval of anti-islamization party

Reader comment on item: Germany's Freiheit Party Joins the Fray

Submitted by Mark Estrin (United States), Nov 2, 2010 at 18:13

Maybe it's time for a similar party in this country. There are lots of people who vote Republican and are more mainstream in their preferences than the Tea Partiers who are co-opting the GOP. Likewise there are many Democrats who, though socially liberal, feel that the Unions have outlived their usefulness and entitlements are bankrupting this country. And I'm equally certain that a majority of Americans, while remaining supportive of our 1st Amendment rights, oppose the Islamization of our country. There is much anger and disaffection among the electorate, and currently no unified movement to serve as an expression of popular beliefs. It's hard to accept that the mindless Tea Party has already gained the acceptance it has. Why not give the non-affiliated a real place to go with their civic energy?
