Which party are you attending in November? What’s is the dress code? I don’t have an invitation. I wonder if I’ll get an invitation? I don’t think I have a thing to wear!

Parties, parties, parties! Here a party, there a party, everywhere a party-party, old McParty had a party, E.I.E.I.O.! So many parties, so many to choose from, so little time. Which party are you attending in November? Will I get an invitation? Do I even want one?

Anything But Thee Party  (includes all other beverages and positions not otherwise mentioned)

OK, I made this one up, but it would include all the others that are out there.

Note: These non-party-non-partisan and non-official parties are presently active in the United States. To understand “non-party” means that in one way or another they will participate in electing some party even if by not voting for any of the parties that win, and by default this makes them partisan and political. Understanding “non-political” means they are political.

Unknown-Should-Be-Known-Suggested Parties

You Are Too Dumb Party or The Smart People in Charge Party

Official un-official motto: “It is better to be a smart ass than dumb ass.” This unofficial party is an exclusive, members only and by invitation only party. High IQ, the right genealogy and the proper DNA is required to be a member of this party. It is made up of elitists, the so-called intellectual superiors, the smart people in charge, the highly educated and über (super) financed idiots that basically have no common sense.

Whichever The Wind Blows Party

This unofficial party as the name indicates, is made up of people and positions which are determined by whichever direction the wind blows.

The Up Yours Party

This unofficial party (people) usually vote for write-in candidates like: Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Homer Simpson, None of the Above, and etc.

The No Spin Party

This unofficial party are made up of mostly all the media that may not spin the facts, they hyper-twirl. They are usually financed by The Screw You Party (see below) in the form of massive advertising dollars, merchandise, and the unsuspecting public.

The Screw You Party

This unofficial party is made up of mostly people, companies, and organizations etc. that fund elections with taxpayer money, or private money spent to get us to vote a certain way to maintain or increase their profits. Yes, non-profit organizations make a lot of money and also use taxpayer money and they also get it tax-free. The Screw You party will fund any party that can screw you, just as long as it ends up with greater profits in their pockets.

The WTF Party

This unofficial party is made up of mostly people so confused or without a clue that they usually do not vote (see: The Rhett Butler “Frankly My Dear I don’t Give a Damn” Party below), or if they do vote, they will ask others who they should vote for, be paid by others to vote, choose the first name(s) on a ballot or just guess. 

The Rhett Butler “Frankly My Dear I don’t Give a Damn” Party

This unofficial party is made up of mostly people who definitely don’t vote or it would be a cold day in hell before they vote. Their enthusiasm for being so un-enthused will still help to decide the candidates or issues in any election. A no-vote is a vote for someone(s) or something(s). But even so, frankly, they don’t give a damn.

The Nuttin’ Party

This unofficial party is made up of mostly non-people that don’t like nuttin,’ no one, and no-how. They are usually militant. If there is nuttin’ to destroy or they’ve got nuttin’ to shoot, they will usually shoot themselves.

The Out-of-Here Party

This unofficial party is made up of mostly people who prepare and believe, it’s always time to kiss our asses good bye, although they can’t seem to come up with a clear date for the end of the world. Note: Even though the last day of the Mayan calendar is Friday, December 21, 2012, it has been found that artisan that chiseled the calendar into stone, merely ran out of room when he hit 12-21-12. His boss said, “Oh, well, that’ll freak em’ out someday!”

The Festivus Party

This unofficial party is made up of mostly people who feel left out. They have no clear ideology or position, only a motto: “When we figure out Festivus, it will be for the rest of us.”

Whew -Who Knew there were so many parties in the U.S.A.?

So which party are you going to in November? The honest truth is that all of these parties are divisive. They divide us from our money. They divide us from the facts. They divide us from our resources. They divide us from our Lives. They divide us from our Liberty. They divide us from our Pursuit of Happiness. They divide us from each other. But dividing us, unites them. These are all united and all come together, one way or another, under one or the other, of the dominant two-party  political ‘system.’

Aren’t you sick and tired of this? Aren’t you sick and tired of being sick and tired of this? Is there anything you can do about it? Who is’ “you”? Is there anything i’ can do about it? Who is’ “i”? Is there anything you and i’ can do about it? Who is’ “you and i”?  What’s a “we’? Are we an “us”?  And what’s an “us”? Are “we” and “us,” WE the People? If you and I, US, and WE the People, weren’t so divided over which party to attend, WE’d be united.

Invitations to a party generally mean others were not sent an invitation. Sometimes, some people uninvited to one party still find out about the party and try to crash the party. They are usually part of some other party they found un-responsive, un-productive, boring, got kicked out of or were sent to crash another party.

Which party are you attending in November? Maybe if WE were all united, we wouldn’t be so divided? To hell with the parties, let’s have a parade!

Parades are public, open to anyone and for everyone! Start a parade, be in a parade, watch the parade, and enjoy the parade! Read:
