    Default Support for a 3rd party at an all time high

    The USA was never meant to be a duopoly. People are disgusted with policies that favor the rich donors.

    THE PEOPLE’S PARTY

    Our vision is a major new progressive populist party that will deliver what regular people take for granted in so many other countries: single-payer health care, free public college, money out of politics, an infrastructure jobs program, a $15 minimum wage, financial regulations, and more.

    The People’s Party is opening nominations for its first generation of candidates. The national People’s Party, in collaboration with our state chapters, will be supporting a diverse and dynamic slate of about a dozen congressional candidates in the 2022 midterm elections. These future representatives will help us blaze a trail for races at every level of government and shape the movement to give a real voice and choice to the voters of America.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    Republicans should go for The Party of God.

    support might be at an all time high, but I watched over 150 million American idiots discard that 'support' in order to beat a guy they hated........which shows a general lack of intelligence or wisdom on their part
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    How would the People's Party differ from the Green Party?

    so 62% of people polled think there should be a third party, but in any election with a third party they get 5% of the vote......we should believe polls......

    the only factual information from those numbers is that 57% of those people are too scared to vote their principles, so they vote out of fear/hate

    Agreed on the disgust and that the two major parties are incapable of reforming themselves.

    or lesser of two evils. There's also the peer pressure of from publicly saying "I voted Third party" where the nutjobs on both the Left and the Right go ballistic screaming about "wasted votes" and "fence sitters".

    a third party would absolutely destroy the GOP

    today's gop voters, Trumpers and non Trumpers, ALWAYS vote party line, Trump or not. then two thirds of the them, Trumpers, would vote only Trumpism, the rinos would get behind someone like Pence or Santorum....a HARD split, leaving the Dems with a 20pt edge at least
