In 2014, 5th district voters in Illinois will have a chance to register their disgust with the seizure of power by the spies at the NSA, thanks to Green Party congressional candidate Nancy Wade. [...]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.

This Just In: did you know that Newt Gingrich is impressed with himself?

The Christian god’s plan for victory for the Constitution Party is to have all good Christians take a long, hard nap in 2013, so that, unlike all the unholy voters who made it to the polls this year, they will be well-rested for the 2014 congressional elections. [...]
1787, a new political party, proposes having a National Convention in September next year, in Philadelphia, to sort out issues like these. Perhaps it will, and perhaps the result will be a political party worth supporting. At present, however, 1787 looks like a poorly conceived mess. [...]
Zak Carter, an organizer of third party presidential debates in 2012, is still riled up about the Democrat and Republican duopoly and wants to do something about it in 2016 — starting today. Irregular Times received this organizing call just a few days ago, and to help find anyone who might be interested in what [...]
It may seem like a long time ago, but it was not so long. Back in 2006, a political corporation called Unity08 started sending out well-funded broadcasts and arranging high-profile media placements through its inside connections. While it claimed that it was standing against the forces of “big money” and demanded that other political parties [...]
“The Can Kicks Back” depicts itself as a social movement of young people who all “individually” decided in 2012 taxing more poor people, taxing corporations less, and cutting social programs is a keen idea, then joined together in a grassroots firestorm sweeping the nation in a grand populist melange of mixed metaphors.
