1. Call for Third Party Hits New High – REPRINT from NEWSMAX

A majority of Americans now say Democrats and Republicans do such a poor job that a third major party is needed, a new Gallup poll reveals.

Respondents were asked: “In your view, do the Republican and Democratic Parties do an adequate job of representing the American people, or do they do such a poor job that a third major party is needed?”

The result: 60 percent say a third party is needed, the highest percentage in the 10 years since Gallup first asked the question. Only 26 percent say the two parties adequately represent Americans, a new low.

Republican and Democratic respondents basically agree — 52 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of Democrats say a third party is needed. This marks the first time a majority of either party’s supporters have said a third party is needed.

Among independents, 71 percent say the country needs a third major party.

The prior highs came in August 2010, shortly before the midterm elections when the tea party movement was emerging as a political force, and in 2007, when the newly elected Democratic congressional majority was battling with President George W. Bush, Gallup disclosed. Both times, 58 percent of respondents believed a third party is needed.

Support for a third party was lowest in 2003: 40 percent.

Gallup cautioned: “The desire for a third party is not sufficient to ensure there will be one. Structural factors in the U.S. election system and the parties’ own abilities to adapt to changing public preferences have helped the Republican and Democratic parties remain the dominant parties in U.S. government for more than 150 years.

“Third parties that have emerged to challenge their dominance have not been able to sustain any degree of electoral success.”

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

MAYBE we could get some real traction out of the failure of Obama and his gang of thugs! A new political party – I suggest “WE THE PEOPLE” as it’s name!

All candidates will have to agree IN WRITING to a MAX TERM LIMIT (20 years my suggestion) or they won’t get the vote.

THINK ABOUT IT!!
