OK. We are about halfway through the debate season and most of the candidates have managed to un-impress everyone.
Cain has risen almost as fast as Perry has flopped. No one can make statements that they will stand by. Romney flip flops like a fish out of water. Perry looks like he has a hot poker up his anus anytime he is asked a question. Cain has already revised his tax plan. Perry was asked on O’Reilly last night how his tax plan would affect Federal cash flow and he had no idea. Ron Paul looks like he will die before the Primaries. Bachman who?
The only candidate quietly going about his business, answering every question put to him with candor and conviction is Newt Gingrich. Can he get the nomination and beat Obama? I don’t believe so.
So I am forced to ask you………….If the current two Party system in all its glory can only produce this level of Candidate why don’t we have a THREE Party system? The time has come people!
“You know, it’s stupidity. There’s no other explanation for it, other than we’re stupid in Washington to continue to do that.”

Q) So if it is so STUPID why did you do it?
A) Because that’s the way I curry favor with my Party, and if I don’t do what my Party says I won’t get re-elected/anything done/favors/MORE.
And that is why we need a 3rd Party!
In the recent Budget debacle, the media was rife with snide comments from Democratic Senators and Representatives about how the recently elected members of Congress who ran on a Tea Party platform, were being “stubborn” and refusing to “negotiate for the common good”. The media (mostly) parrotted these comments and put on such airs of hurt and suffering.
Not one media outlet, including Fox made the very simple comment: these people are doing EXACTLY what they were elected to do. The “established” Washington elected officials still do not get it! Reid and Pelosi are dinosaurs of a soon to be bygone era. Calling them ostriches would be a compliment!
I still say it is time for a viable 3rd party, and the Tea Party has most of the apparatus in place already. C’mon Sarah! Run the Party and forget about the Presidency. You are where we need you right now!
I put forth the argument that the reason we have such gridlock in Washington, is that with the current two-party system we have, politicians with the potential to have a grain of common sense and morals cannot get elected because they must forfeit ALL of those in order to get the support of the extremists in either party.
Enter…..The Third Party. A party founded on common sense with a strong touch of reality thrown in. Face it: 90% of the people in this country recognize the fact that BOTH the Republican and Democratic leadership has nothing in common with nor comes from a background that in any way allows for them to relate to the average Joe or Joan.
Most people in this country also know that the answers to the problems that face them every day are NOT in the extremes of either party. They are in discourse and compromise for the good of the majority. And that does not mean more handouts.
So here’s a proposition for Sarah Palin; Use the influence she holds and the base that has already been established with the Tea Party and formalize it exactly as the two major parties have been. Create a strong, powerful voting block that can raise its own candidates to counter the rubber stamp politics we have seen for the last few decades.
The base is already there. Use it! Grow it! Take power away from the extreme left AND right and give it to the PEOPLE! We know that there is right and wrong in both political views. Let us find and raise the kind of candidates who are more interested in growing the Country than their own power, influence, and prestige.
Good employers know that the surest way to grow their company is to make sure their employees grow at the same or faster rate. As a sales manager I would be ecstatic if every one of my sales force made more than I did on an individual basis. Since I get a % of all I end up making more! Duhhh!
