duck season! election season!

OK, it's actually called "DemocracyLand" and originates from "," a group dedicated to presenting a third-party candidate in the next presidential election. Read on:

Unity08 divides issues facing the country into two categories: Crucial Issues – on which America’s future safety and welfare depend; and Important Issues – which, while vital to some, will not, in our judgment, determine the fate or future of the United States.

In our opinion, Crucial Issues include: Global terrorism, our national debt, our dependence on foreign oil, the emergence of India and China as strategic competitors and/or allies, nuclear proliferation, global climate change, the corruption of Washington’s lobbying system, the education of our young, the health care of all, and the disappearance of the American Dream for so many of our people.

By contrast, we consider gun control, abortion and gay marriage important issues, worthy of debate and discussion in a free society, but not issues that should dominate or even crowd our national agenda.

In our opinion – since the disintegration of the Soviet Union – our political system seems to have focused more attention on the “important issues” than the “crucial issues.” One result: The political parties have been built to address the interests of their “base” but have failed to address the realities that impact most Americans.

Any group that offers a respite from 'politics as usual', gets my endorsement, but then again I might be Libertarian. Go third party go!

Plus, I can't play this game at the moment, so I needed to save it somewhere to remind myself to check it out later. Don't get your hopes up though-I'm sure it's no panda bounce ...

ETA it's no panda bounce.
