Has There Ever Been A Better Time To Start A NEW Party?Submitted by zooamerica on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 17:05
Maybe...hoping for a Paul/Johnson Libertarian Party ticket to soon be announced.
If one last 3rd party shot doesn't work, then yes.
Why do republicans and democrats have their own party, but independents do not?
Independents are the largest voting block in America, but they do not have an official party. That makes no sense whatsoever.
The 2 party system needs COMPETITION.
Competition is NOT a sin in politics, nor is competition a sin in business!
Republicans have the Republican Party. Democrats have the Democratic Party.
It seems logical to conclude that Independents should have their own Independence Party too. That would be fair, and appropriate.
About 40% of Americans are registered independents. About 31% are registered democrats, and 27% are registered republicans.
What's wrong here?
40% of American voters are relegated to various 3rd parties, all of which have no real political power. And people wonder why less than half of eligible voters stay home.
2012 has proven that even if Patriots win fair and square at their respective local levels, the RNC will never let us get to the top of their house. It is their house, and they will set their own rules for as long as they are alive.
We need to move out of Mom and Dad's Grand Old Playhouse, and move into our own ILP...Independence Liberty Party. Then we can set our own rules, and have our own house party. THEN we can really challenge the status quo establishment.
Ron Paul has always talked about introducing competition into our monetary system. Look at what has happened to Europe after competing currencies were eliminated and replaced by the Euro?
I hope Ron Paul introduces the idea of competition within our own political system as well. Competing parties, and competing currencies....happily ever after.
