Fournier's got no use for either political party

Just a reminder that there's a third candidate in the race against U.S. Rep. John Larson, the East Hartford Democrat whose 1st District includes Bristol - a guy who doesn't think Larson is liberal enough.
Stephen Fournier writes on his campaign website that "racketeers and their henchmen now govern America."
"The two major political parties have been complicit in the racket and have furthered it by trashing the Bill of Rights, undermining the rule of law, and effectively repealing all checks on executive power," he wrote.
"Most recently, our leaders have waged two wars to advance their political ends and lost both of them, as all responsible authorities predicted they would.
"They have long since quit regulating the big, anti-national corporations that control public policy, resulting in the widespread abuse of workers, poor quality goods, mass export of jobs, declines in public health and happiness, environmental pollution, the concentration of wealth in a few hands, and a failing economy.
"These problems can't be addressed until Americans undertake the restoration of Constitutional government. This candidacy--the candidate is a troublemaker and whistleblower--is an expression of urgency."
His website has links to many of his writings in case you're interested in checking him out more thoroughly.
The Republican challenger to Larson is Joe Visconti, a flamboyant West Hartford town council member.

Is this guy in Bob Merrick's Lincolnian Party?

Steve,

What does Bob Merrick (who signs his posts) have to do with this blog subject?

This poster goes out of his way to keep bringing Bob up through out the topics on your blog. Must have a personal reason or vendetta.

Who cares? Lighten up.

And if you think just one "poster" has been making comments about this guy, you've been drinking his cool-aide.

Steve,

Why do people who snidely criticize others for not signing their posts, not sign their own?

Steve,

Why does that poster ask you a question when obviously it's addressed to another person?

Steve,

Can you tell I'm being sarcastic and am not really directing this question at you?

Fournier and Merrick both have in common the fact that each believe in alternative political organizations.

Why are you so concerned? Perhaps if someone doesn't want to bring attention to him/her-self they should remain anonymous?

I think the first comment was interesting and now I'm planning on researching both parties. Perhaps they both are viable alternatives?

Please remember to think more positively in the future!

Fornier is a classic leftist. He is also undoutably a socialist. He is a crack pot, America-hating ultra liberal.

At it's best the Green Party got about 5%-6% in a general election. Unfortunatley even with those numbers it won't be enough to help the Republican win* in the 1st Congressional District (in my opinion). But I hope I'm wrong.

*the Green Party takes votes
primarily from the generally left-leaning Democrat Party.
