If you think the GOP is controlled, third parties have no chance

Third Party organizations have no chance to move forward, the GOP and Democrat parties make it so that no third party can win.

Taking over the GOP is a cake walk compared to trying to win with a third party. The ballot access requirements and legal costs are incredible. While the GOP and Dems are manipulating the sheeple, third parties waste their time getting signatures to get on the ballot. By the time a party is officially on a state ballot, no money or time to win over voters who usually have no clue why that party stands for. When is the last time you heard a sheeple program like the Today Show mention the Libertarian Party - maybe once every 3 years - a laugher.

If you really want to start a 3rd party, you would have to infiltrate the GOP or Democrat Party at least 40% of the way, then in mass through the media, national committee members, candidates, elected officials break off from the party to start a new party. It's the only way. Any state GOP organizations controlled by us would have to disaffiliate and take the Republican name with them for that state.
