Needed–A Third Party

February 22, 2021

This morning, having arisen at 6:00 am, I accessed “Morning Joe” at MSNBC and was told to expect a segment on a move supported by the American people toward formation of a third Party.

My interest was immediately piqued and I did not press the “Mute” button.  I discovered that “According to a Jan. 21-Feb 2 Gallup poll, when asked whether ‘the Republican and Democratic parties do an adequate job of representing the American people’ or if those two parties ‘do such a poor job that a third major party is needed,’ 62% of U.S. adults feel that a third party is needed.”

Wow!

Sixty-two percent of “U.S. adults” may agree with my call for a “National Conservative Party.”

Much to my surprise, on February 15, I received a request from a resident of Virginia who organizes discussions on topical issues to precisely discuss that!

What’s going on?

On four occasions starting on August 8 of 2017—four years ago—I wrote that now is the time to organize a National Conservative party!

But only now has that sense that something is stirring among my fellow Americans has a Gallup poll been conducted that confirms my sense of four years ago that our Two Party system is broken and that we are moving toward a multi-Party system.

Nearly twenty years ago I learned something about the cost of placing a new party on ballots in the States from Paul Weyrich—about $300,000 per state. In today’s currency that may cost $750,000 per state. To be credible you will want on the ballot on the top 34 states with population above three million residents.

So, if you’re starting from scratch you will need not less than $25 million.

Now the “Constitution Party” launched by Howard Phillips 53 years ago is still around. Perhaps it can be bought!

That’s a question worth asking now that it’s clear Americans want another Party to compete with the Two Party system that has failed.
