    wouldn't it be nice if we could have a party that checked it's ideologies at the door and look at problems only from a practical and logical point of view?

    I know it is wishful thinking but it sure would be nice.

    Call it the American Pragmatist party :) APP

    Only you'd have people bickering over what was logical and what was practical ;)

    My thought has always been an America First party. Bring the troops home, and put them on the Mexican border. Develop alternative energy and drill in Alaska. Bring in universal healthcare, but cut costs. Restrict handguns, but be tough on criminals. And by all means cut spending and borrowing.

    I wish the president would always ask his advisors one simple question, "Will this work?"

    How many?

    Agreed

    Agreed - but the tough part is how.

    How restrictive?

    Agree short of the death penalty

    Agreed

    America First Party just sounds like the nationalization of all our priorities.

    We should not need an America first party. The constitution empowers our government to server Americans not the rest of the world :)

    Teddy Roosevelt always did what was good for America, and his party hated him for it.

    That's why he was such a great president.

    I would love that. I wish we had no parties at all.

    Exactly. I already see a few illogical and impractical people have chimed in on this thread.

    :badgrin:
