A Third Party ? Good idea?
If it’s not too much trouble, readers, give us a ‘yes’ or ‘no’…our progressive ‘monitors’ are curious!
Is it time for a third party…not to compete with the GOP…but to replace it ?
A lot of talk these days about a third Party…the “Patriot Party” maybe… to offer an alternative to the Republican Party, which many conservatives believe has become little more than an adjunct of the Democratic, Washington “Uni-Party”.
Like myself, many conservatives ask, ‘is Liz Cheney a Republican?’ ‘Or “Mittens” Romney?’ ‘Or Susan Collins?’
and, ‘how about that Mitch’?
The answer most of us would give is, “we don’t think so, but if they are, that sure isn’t ‘my party’, deserving of whatever level of support I give it.”
So, is it time to start a “Patriot Party”?, that better reflects the values and goals of people who currently vote “Republican”?
I don’t know. But, I do know I will no longer vote for someone who says they are Republican, but upon arriving in Washington, walks like a Democrat, talks like Democrat, quacks like a Democrat, and often votes like a Democrat !
Maybe a third party is a bad idea. but, in most instances, I can’t vote for either of today’s “two ‘major’ parties”!
