What should the political parties do to improve the political process in the years ahead? There is endless criticism of Congress and the President of the United States, but little analysis directed to our political parties that actually produce all those officials. The final product gets all the criticism, and the machinery that produces it is almost ignored.
So I thought I'd offer up a few suggestions for both parties and then for the Republican Party in particular. I'm more interested in the Republican Party, as I now view the Democratic Party as one of the enemies of a free society. See my columns, "Handling the Enemies of a Free Society" (Nov. 5) and "The Democratic Party's Assault on Free Speech" (Nov. 6), both at the Bulletin's Web site, thebulletin.us.
The first problem is that the primary election process can't produce the best candidates because of the distortions of the mainstream media. Unfortunately for our democracy, the mainstream media has become a partisan and is no longer in the role of producing journalism to give the public the facts so it can make up its mind. The mainstream media makes up its mind, and then tries to defraud and brainwash the public into accepting its choice. That was neatly illustrated in both the primaries and then the general election. Those that relied on the mainstream media were getting campaign propaganda and not the facts needed to make an informed judgment. Consequently, we had an election that can be viewed as a coup, with the mainstream media playing a central and improper role in taking over the government by electing their candidate, the chosen one, Sen. Barack Obama.

Herb Dennenberg is an old school Democrat -one a conservative could actually vote for. He was insurance commissioner many years back and brought much needed reform to that business.
The Democrat party has long since dispensed with such people, and with the RINOs now in charge it looks like the Republicans are doing the same.
Left unchecked, we will be like Canada and Britain, with two liberal parties differing only in degree on their liberalism.
Overlooked is that there may not ever be another honest election in the United States.. because of massive voter fraud.. The FBI could care less.. the RNC has sucked their thumbs for decades on this issue.. It might be too late.. No.. clear the might be.. it is too late for normal correctional remedys..
