The United States are often viewed from abroad a country of only-two-party system, and that’s not without a cause. However, a lot of other parties do exist in the country. For example, the Florida Pirate Party is now engaged in the process of being allowed to run candidates in the state.
Many would agree that it undoubtedly takes courage to become a candidate for a political party that hopes to receive a seat anywhere, particularly when you do not belong to the Republican or Democrat parties. However, that’s precisely what the Pirate Party of Florida is now doing. The Florida Pirate Party site has posted the news that the Chairman of the Pirate Party of Florida, Ryan Moffitt, is starting his own campaign to become the Florida state House Representative from District 86. Moffitt revealed that after the paperwork is certified by the Division of Elections, the chairman will be cleared to gather donations and move to collecting voter petitions in order to get a spot on the ballot in the general election next year.
Ryan Moffitt admits that the party has a long road ahead on this one, because thus far he needs over 500 of Florida voters’ signatures to be allowed to get on the ballot, and it’s hard to do this alone. Despite facing an incumbent representative of the only-two-party system is a hard task, the Pirate Party truly believes it will manage to make a stand. The matter is that there are so many issues the party can raise in the United States – starting from such pro-copyright legislation as the DMCA and ending with warrantless wiretapping. These controversial issues would suit the party perfectly even though such policies actually originate from another branch of government. At the very least, one needs to start somewhere.
The Chairman of the Pirate Party urges people to help him end the monopolist copyright industry, back room deals, secret campaigns, and Internet filtering. He pointed out that everyone can help him bring Florida into the new digital age and end the old ideals, since the future always belongs to the voters. Meanwhile, he was right when he admitted to have plenty of work ahead of him right now – taking down the only-two-party system won’t be that easy. We can only hope that 518 Floridians will agree to sign the papers to let him move further.
