NEW YORK, June 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Ostrich Press, publisher of The Blue Folio, applauds their author, Matt McMahon's launch of the satirical Bleating Sheep Party. Following the story line of his near-future political thriller, McMahon calls for a Second Constitutional Convention in 2037, the 250th anniversary of the original convention, on his blog the bleatOsphere which provides impetus in The Blue Folio for the movement to take back the government from the rich and powerful.
"The most important first step," author, Matt McMahon says, "is to purge the grip that corporations, lobbyists and the uber wealthy have on access to our government." He throws his support behind all of the current efforts for an immediate constitutional convention to undue unlimited campaign financing and undue Supreme Court decisions such as Citizens United, McClutche, and SpeechNow.
He uses a party symbol, a whimsical bleating sheep in a motif similar to the Republican elephant, Democratic donkey, and Tea Party teapot that can be displayed looking left or right. "This is an important point," McMahon says. "Conservative politicians want you looking right, Liberal politicians want you looking left so that nobody's looking at them while they have their hands in the pockets of big money interests whose hands in turn control the strings of our government."
According to the website, www.bleatOsphere.com, there is nothing you have to do to become a member of the Bleating Sheep Party. No donations will be solicited or accepted to avoid the hypocrisy of trying to use money to stop money politics. You don't have to give up your current political affiliations or beliefs.
Instead, McMahon asks that you let politicians know that you are bleating mad at money politics by pushing the bleating sheep symbol in their faces. "Wear it next to your Tea Party, Democratic, or Republican pin and let politicians see that you know what they're doing and you're bleating sick of it," McMahon suggests.
It's a case of fact following fiction, Black Ostrich Press suggests.
