    The establishment of this site couldn't be more timely. I urge people to browse the site, sign the declaration and post your comments.

    Uh.

    Having a Label of No Labels is still a label.

    And this is just cold leftovers from the Coffee Party.

    So, they are for raising taxes, which is confiscating private property, at the same time they say we should not label Obama's policies.

    On another page they call our use of oil an, "addiction". That is from the Obama campaign. Trading for the best oil in the world is not an addiction. Despite what oil we have in our country economically it is best to use Saudi Arabian oil. Economically it serves our interest to have our corporations producing oil in other countries.

    The energy policy they state is more bull, they state clean energy, there is no such thing, clean energy is the worlds largest electrical power plants in size, in raw materials used, in cost to the public, yet clean energy is unreliable, intermittent, unpredictable, and a very weak source of energy.

    A complete waste of energy.

    I can not support a movement based on an energy policy that is obviously ignorant.

    I think you're missing the point of the site. You have every right to discuss the issues, as you did, above, but leave out the demonizing, the accusations, the bullshit. The website ENCOURAGES such discourse, whether you approve or not.

    I did not miss the point, I can say I do not like the energy policy but I can not call the energy policy ignorant for when I call the energy policy ignorant the No Label people label my speech demonizing, an accusation, or bullshit. This is attack on my constitutional right to free speech and is being used politically to quiet dissent.

    No it doesn't.

    It's there to encourage GroupThink.

    Some predictable responses. Don't like the site, then ignore it. Your choice. I couldn't care less.

    Looks like a fairly leftist group that wants to pretend they are mainstream - which by what I read - is anything but.

    Sorry, Maggie. This isn't about 'no labels', this is more left wing propaganda. I see no one but progressives included in their 'contributors' list..... blogger from the HuffPuff? That's laughable. It has a credibility issue for me.

    However, I'll watch the site.... and read it more thoroughly.

    Nice find though. Whether I agree with it or not, it's a good one to bring to the board.
