Open House/Covered Dish Dinner of ‘The Independent Party of Delaware’ (IPoD)

An Open House and Covered Dish Dinner will be held by the Independent Party of Delaware on Saturday, May 4th at Sussex East’s Manor House. The Manor House is located on Rt.9, 1.3 miles west of the intersection at Five Points, Lewes DE. If you have a GPS device, the address is: 30769 Lewes-Georgetown HWY, Lewes DE, 19958. It is a great opportunity to get to know the leadership and members of Delaware’s fastest growing Third Party. It is also a great way to find out what the party platform consists of and exactly WHY this party is growing so quickly. The Independent Party of Delaware belongs to Delawareans. Come as you are. Come to the Manor House this coming Saturday and meet some great people and eat some great food. This event will be open to people of all parties and will entertain open and honest discussion of issues that concern our state and nation. Bring your family to this family oriented event and have fun! The Independent Party of Delaware is a party of inclusion, not a party of EXCLUSION, so bring your family and a covered dish. If you cannot bring a covered dish, please come and eat good food and have great conversation with other patriotic Americans. We feel that modern government must, at all levels, be restructured to place the balance of power into the hands of citizens in the greater common interest. Accordingly, we advocate state constitutional amendments establishing, the right of citizens to draft and propose legislation and the right of citizens to ultimately vote on legislation and constitutional amendments and the right to dismiss elected officials for just cause. Come to our Open House and Covered Dish Dinner and learn about our party platform, to make Delaware first in Liberty and Independence.

  1. Going to need something, if the current “mainstream” paradigm finally gives way even more than it already has due to its own corrupt and bloated weight.

  2. …we advocate state constitutional amendments establishing, the right of citizens to draft and propose legislation and the right of citizens to ultimately vote on legislation and constitutional amendments and the right to dismiss elected officials for just cause.

    And you intend to do this with third-party candidates? Yeah, right. You’re wasting your time- it’s virtually impossible to garner enough votes with GOP candidates in Delaware, so how in the world will you accomplish it with third-party irrelevancy?

    The more realistic means is to keep the pressure on the GOP, to keep ‘moderate’ candidates off the ballot by means of the primary and to effectively show how the liberal Socialist-Democrats are failing miserably.

    Third-party movements are effective only in dividing those who, in varying degrees, reject liberalism. Thus, they facilitate Socialist-Democrat political hegemony.

    What you are saying is fine, but If it hasn’t worked in the last three years, we’ve no reason to believe it will start working now.
    BTW, “The Independent Party of Delaware,” does not consider itself a third party, we are the fastest growing party in Delaware and we will continue to grow.
    We consider the two major parties as one party that eat at the same table and drink at the same trough and we are the second party.
    Rick, since when did our legislators start listening to, and representing their constituency. Your plan simply won’t work, and your are a smart guy; you must realize that by now.

  4. I gotta tell ya…asking people to bring food toYOUR meeting isn’t a winning strategy. C’mon! How much would a couple of cheese pizzas cost?

  5. TC
    I gotta tell ya… people really love covered dish dinners. Why don’t ya show up and find out.

  6. Unaffiliated voters currently number at around 140,000 in Delaware registrations. Joining the Independent Party affords these voters all the advantages of being unaffiliated with all of the benefits of party membership.

    When a fraction of these voters join the IPoD, we will be in the primary process. Truly open primaries, not controlled by party bosses. Then you have disenfranchised democrats and republicans who don’t tow the party line well enough to suit the machines. We don’t have such a structure.

    This is an idea whose time has come. We don’t have an ideology other than the notion that the people are the sovereign and the government belongs to them. We have a methodology to restore this balance with no ideological thought police.

    Preparing for the growth ahead is a challenge that will require hard work and dedicated people of integrity. This is a tremendous opportunity to really make Delaware first at something. For those who aren’t comfortable with this notion or who wish to dwell on all the reasons it can’t work that’s your right.

    We aren’t going to try and tell you how to feel or think. Instead we’ll let you be amazed by the results. Come on out and meet with other Americans who know there’s a better way. Join the conversation.

  7. Doug, it appears that Delaware needs a Pessimist Party for those who believe there is no hope.

  8. Jon
    But there is hope. The Independent Party of Delaware is fast growing and addressing the issues. The people that come to our events are changing registrations from all parties to ours.
    Doug’s comment states our position well, and people that attend our events are indicating that by registering for IPoD.

  9. What you are saying is fine, but If it hasn’t worked in the last three years, we’ve no reason to believe it will start working now.

    Gee, you’ve expended an entire 3 years on getting conservatives elected?

    3 years ain’t nothing, just ask David Anderson, who has devoted his life to getting conservatives elected in Delaware, or Mary Spicer, or John Reily or the hundreds of Republicans across the state who have spent years and years donating to candidates, going door to door and fighting for the cause. We believe in something, we have fought for it for as long as I can remember, and we don’t give up because it gets hard.

  10. Jon,

    To piggyback on what Don wrote, I can’t be too hard on the pessimists because none of us would be in IPoD if we hadn’t gone through that thought process.

    When you see people whose former traditional party roles would have them near mortal enemies sit down and arrive at positive solutions you don’t think there’s hope – you know it. At that point optimism isn’t a choice it’s simply the natural result.

  11. Doug, of course, I am being flippant, which I undertake too readily. But when a person sees a problem, there is a fundamental choice, a fundamental fork in the road: Curse the darkness or light a candle.

    There is plenty in Delaware Republican politics to be discouraged about. But a lot of people prefer and relish saying that nothing will ever work (it’s a bizarre universal human tendency). It becomes like the story (don’t know if it’s true) that if one crab tries to climb out of the pail the other crabs will pull it back into the bucket.

    Of course we have a lot of liberals posting anonymously whose purpose is to sow division and discouragement and demoralize the Republican party. So many of the comments that this won’t work or that won’t work are intended to harm the DEGOP, not help it.

    It is always better to think things through, of course. Before you start building a bridge it is a good idea to think it through and consider what could possibly go wrong. Hopefully the final plans go through many revisions after LISTENING to everyone who has a comment, to make for a better bridge.

    But at the end of the day, everyone has to look themselves in the mirror and ask: WHO AM I? A complainer? Or a doer?

    Yesterday I was so busy thinking about things and in such a hurry that I withdrew $200 from the ATM, walked away without taking the cash, and then realized it only when I went to pay in the grocery store. I felt like an idiot (and was). I spent the next 3 hours having to battle the choice between shaking it off and moving on versus feeling discouraged.

    Life forces on us the choice between looking at things out of pessimism or looking for solutions. Recognizing the dangers and the problems is part of brainstorming to find the right solution. But taking every challenge as an excuse to QUIT, GIVE UP, and (with apologies to Monty Python) RUN AWAY…!!!! is an entirely different attitude.

  12. I will give you Anderson and Spicer, but John Rieley is a do nothing big mouth.

  13. Here is the tactics of the Left. Here is what happened (in part) to Christine O’Donnell in 2010 (NOT when she was the 2008 nominee of the Republican Party, of course).

    AND IT WILL KEEP HAPPENING TO FUTURE CANDIDATES IF DELAWARE REPUBLICANS DO NOT STUDY THE TECHNIQUES OF THEIR OPPONENTS.

    A professional football team would be very, very foolish indeed if they did not study the plays, style, game preferences, etc. of their opponent. The team watches film from their upcoming opponents’ past games.

    Yet many in the DEGOP stubbornly refuse to learn from the past in order to win in the future. Many posters here would rather play distraction and diversion games by talking about my personal feelings or affection for Christine instead of studying the tapes to see how the Democrats and liberal news media run their plays in order to be more successful in future elections.

    If the Steelers are playing the Miami Dolphins in the next upcoming Sunday, WHY DO THEY CARE ABOUT OLD FOOTBALL GAMES? WATCH VIDEO OF PREVIOUS GAMES? WHY???? THAT’S THE PAST, MAN. OLD FOOTBALL GAMES ARE OLD NEWS.

    Lloyd Marcus is a Black tea party leader and conservative:leader.

    Wow! I experienced it firsthand. I wrote an article defending the biblical take on an issue. The mainstream media misquoted me and took my words out of context to portray me as someone I am not — a rabid hater. Recklessly, without reading my original article to learn what I actually said, several news sources reprinted a reporter’s distortion of my article.

    But conservatives/Republicans wrestle with each other to be first at the microphone to denounce the slightest faux pas by someone on our side. They kick fellow conservatives/Republicans to the curb, saying, How could so-and-so have said something so stupid? He’s done!

    Of course they are condemning something the person never said.

    Meanwhile, liberals/Democrats make the most outrageous over-the-top statements without a peep of criticism from the mainstream media or their party. Democrat VP Biden said, “They [Republicans] gon’ put y’all [blacks] back in chains.” Democrat Rep. Andre Carson said the Tea Party movement would “love” to see black Americans “hang from a tree.”

    Democrat Alan Grayson said, “Republicans want you to die quickly.”

    Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said, “The Tea Party can go straight to hell.” Think about that, folks. Millions of Americans who oppose Obama ignoring the Constitution and cramming his socialist/progressive agenda down their throat have been told by a Democrat to go to hell.

    Has anyone in the media accused Democrats of being mean-spirited? Has any Democrat denounced a fellow Democrat’s outrageous statements? No.
