Keynote Speech of the 2016 IPoD State Convention

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Secretary General of the Independent Party of Delaware The INDEPENDENT Alternative On August 29, 2000 in the City of Wilmington, a new post-political force was born to challenge the corrupt closed-loop special interest controlled two-party monopoly currently misruling the First State. WE are not called the INDEPENDENT PARTY of DELAWARE for nothing. Our mission is to help the People of Delaware restore the American Spirit --- the Spirit of Freedom, the Spirit of Liberty, the Spirit of INDEPENDENCE, the Spirit of Creativity, the Spirit of Innovation, the Spirit of Prosperity, the Spirit of the Spirit of Exploration, The Spirit of Adventure and the Spirit of Action. Even a passing look at the shape that America is currently in tells us that we have a lot of work to do. The so-called “two-party” system has failed as it limited our options and narrowed our Read more

Join the Independent Alternative

OPINION: By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer With the current internal conflict and disarray in the Republican Party and increasing frustration of the American People, national politics is at a critical turning point. The GOP “establishment” is desperate to stop “insurgent” Donald Trump at all costs. Rumors and disinformation abound in a sea of tumult, personal attack and carefully crafted negative advertising instead of substantive debate on constructive solutions to the array of complex problems facing the American People in an unstable economic environment in the face of a massive national debt. On the Democratic Party side of the presidential equation, the voters have an essential choice between a long-time Socialist and a former First Lady facing FBI investigation and possible indictment on serious national security charges. We are approaching a critical psychological Read more

Time to Change Political Party Registration???

COMMENTARY: Time to Change Political Party Registration??? By: Wolfgang von Baumgart, Staff Writer A recent survey by the Center for Public Integrity ranked the First State as 48th in state integrity and gave it an overall ‘F’ grade. Given the rather sorry state of our economy, numerous cases of poor financial management, increased loss of individual freedom and opportunity, new voices in Delaware politics are needed now, more than ever. However, given the dirty - if not utterly filthy - nature of politics (as evidenced by the arrogant, distorted, libelous, toxic and vitriolic environment some political blog sites) many good, caring, kindhearted, creative and intelligent people are discouraged from seeking elected office, lest their reputations be dragged through the mud in partisan character assassination campaigns. As a result, critical public questions and issues requiring Read more

He (Possibly) Blames IPoD

It's official.  It appears that no one will win Dave's contest of what or who will Protack blame for his loss on Tuesday. Even my guess of "The voting booths committed perjury" fails to capture a prize. Why? Because nobody picked IPoD as his excuse (thanks to Dana G for posting this and making it easy to find the reference in the WNJ): Protack said his nomination by the Independent Party probably hurt him in the GOP primary. He thought it would be a good thing, he said, but now believes voters saw him as trying to play both sides. Well, there you go.  IPoD probably hurt him.  Looks to me his ultimate payback is remaining on the ballot as their committee-head, non-member endorsed candidate for Governor. Waiting for Pol Pot Pilot to provide commentary... Read more
