Third Parties in Two Party America – Dole Institute

  

In the United States those on the political left who identify themselves as progressive or liberal  are mostly registered and vote as Democrats.

The progressive radical socialists dominate the education, entertainment, the legal profession,  major media, unions, and governments.

The progressive radical socialists have a core political base of about 20% of the American voters. 

For all practical purposes the Democratic Party has become and is led by progressive radical socialists.

This is the reason that over the last forty years  many Americans that consider themselves  conservatives and/or libertarians that were Democrats have changed their party registration and now vote Republican or consider themselves as Independents.

The challenge is the Republican Party establishment is permeated with what used to be called Rockefeller or country club Republicans and are now called Republicans in Name Only or Rhinos–progressives on many issues such as comprehensive immigration reform,  government spending, taxation and social issues such as favoring abortion or the killing of unborn children.

Many movement conservatives and/or libertarians that were once supporters of the Republican Party, now when asked we tell you they consider themselves to be independents.

I am a classical liberal or what in the United States is called a libertarian.

While I am also a movement conservative, I am now an independent.

I come from a family that out of habit voted Democratic.

Many are breaking this bad habit for they want no part of a progressive radical socialist Democratic Party that puts government ahead of the individual and family.

Both the Republican and Democratic parties have been fiscally irresponsible and have only grown the size and scope of government.

Neither political party is advocating truly cutting Federal spending by shutting down permanently Federal Departments or eliminating all Federal taxes and replacing it a broad-based consumption sales tax that would encourage a strong work ethic, savings, job creation, economic growth and wealth creation.

Many independents loyalty is to the conservative and/or libertarian movement not the Republican or Democratic parties.

Many of them are active in organizing and attending Tea Parties across the nation.

I suspect that roughly 40% of the American electorate would vote for a Tea Party candidate over a Democrat or Republican.

Both political parties are threatened by the prospect of  a competitive and viable third-party.

Unlike the majority of talk show radio hosts such as Rush  Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Bill Bennett, who regularly discourage talk of a third-party and advocate movement conservatives take over the Republican Party,  I for one think it would be very beneficial if the United States actually had three or even four viable political parties competing for public office.

Competition is good.

The more political competition the better.

A viable third political party in the United States would need to regularly get around 35% to 40% of the registered voters to consistently win elections.

This would require a minimum of twenty years to accomplish and a minimum of sixty billion dollars in contributions over these twenty years or about 3  billion dollars per year.

For this to happen the Tea Party movement needs to clearly articulate a core set of positions on issues of most concern to the American people such as the following:

1. Government Spending: surplus budgets to pay down the National Debt by restricting fiscal year spending budgets to 80% of previous year’s  FairTax collections with the remaining 20% to pay down the debt.

2. Federal Tax Reform: The FairTax should  replace all Federal taxes.

3. Size and scope of the government: At least ten Federal Departments and many Federal agencies should be closed permanently. The number of Federal employees need to cut by at least 50%.

4. National Defense: Budget 5% of our nation’s gross domestic product for national defense, securing our borders and homeland security.

5. Foreign Affairs: End US involvement with the United Nations and bring all the troops home from abroad including Europe, Great Britain, Japan, South Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

6. Social Security and Medicare: Transform them from a government controlled and operated system to an individual controlled and investment system where benefits are based upon payments into a person’s account and investment performance. All person over the age of fifty would have the option to remain under the existing Social Security and Medicare programs or go into the new individual controlled  system.

7. Immigration: immigration law enforcement, illegal alien removal and deportation, and controlled and limited legal immigration not to exceed 250,000 persons per year. All new citizens must speak, read and write English before becoming a United States citizen.

8. Promote competition in education: provide  all parents with  school vouchers that enable them to choose the school their children attend including home schooling and online schooling.
9. Health Care Reform: affordable, portable, individual, tax favored, and competitive health insurance plans and expanded health savings accounts.

10. End the Federal Reserve System and fiat money and  institute  a new gold/silver backed currency standard.

11. End all Federal subsidies to businesses no matter what form the subsidies take.

12. Eliminate Federal Government regulations that put U.S. businesses at a competitive disadvantage.

13. Energy Independence: repeal all laws and regulations that are impeding the growth and expansion of US energy production including oil and gas exploration and refining and nuclear electrical power generation plant construction and operation.

14. Preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America: appoint judges and public servants that will uphold their oaths.

The above Fourteen Issue Positions  should receive the support of the vast majority of the American people including Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians and others.

However, both the Democratic and Republican Parties would not support these Fourteen Issue Positions in their entirety.

The Tea Party movement must transform itself into a viable political party that is fundamentally different from both the Democratic and Republican parties that are responsible for the economic, political and military mess the United States currently finds itself.

We the people must form a new political party.

We the people must fund a new political party.

We the people must run a new political party.

This new political party must be an alliance of former Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and independents who put individuals and families first and favor accountable, fiscally responsible and limited government.

I call this new political party the American Citizens Alliance Party or A Cap for short–A CAP on Government Spending, Taxes, Debts and Regulations!

Join the Second American Revolution.

Tea Party Time!

 

AMERICA IS ME – Anthem for “We the People” by Mack Hayes – Tea Party salute

The Meaning of Independence Day – Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights

“Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two parties: 1. Those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes. 2. Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe, although not the most wise depositary of the public interests. In every country these two parties exist, and in every one where they are free to think, speak, and write, they will declare themselves. Call them, therefore, Liberals and Serviles, Jacobins and Ultras, Whigs and Tories, Republicans and Federalists, Aristocrats and Democrats, or by whatever name you please, they are the same parties still and pursue the same object. The last one of Aristocrats and Democrats is the true one expressing the essence of all.”

~Thomas Jefferson to Henry Lee, 1824. ME 16:73

 

“There are many men of principle in both parties in America but there is no party of principle.”

~Alexis de Tocqueville

Tea Party 48% Obama 44% 

“…On major issues, 48% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is closer to their views than President Barack Obama. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 44% hold the opposite view and believe the president’s views are closer to their own.

Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly feel closer to the Tea Party and most Democrats say that their views are more like Obama’s. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, 50% say they’re closer to the Tea Party while 38% side with the President. …”

“…Tea Party supporters skew right politically; but demographically, they are generally representative of the public at large. That’s the finding of a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted March 26-28, in which 28% of U.S. adults call themselves supporters of the Tea Party movement.

Affiliation With Tea Party Movement

Tea Party supporters are decidedly Republican and conservative in their leanings. Also, compared with average Americans, supporters are slightly more likely to be male and less likely to be lower-income.
