Thoughts on Third-Party Concept

Posted by Joshua Price on October 29, 2007

Like many disgruntled and disheartened conservatives I have given quite a bit of thought to the legitimacy of a potential third-party–a conservative party–in our political system. I’m tired of hearing how our system is set up to serve only two parties. Currently that’s true, but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

I am all for taking the Republican Party back to it’s conservative base, but if elite and influential Republicans don’t start listening–sincerely listening, not just pandering–to conservatives, we will have no choice but to seek third-party status.

We hear from the institutionalized Republicans that we (conservatives) need the Party more than the Party needs us. Well you would think they would have gotten the message from last year’s trouncing, but apparently they didn’t. And just think, Republicans still got a fairly significant conservative vote. That won’t be there next year if things continue this way.

Now they will continue to say that if conservatives don’t for a RINO, or a flat-out liberal, that all we will be doing is electing Hillary. What they don’t understand is that if conservatives are forced to run a third-party candidate it will get a much larger share of the electorate than say a Ross Perot. They don’t see that. They truly believe that globalists and the Republican first, conservative second crowd makes up the overwhelming majority of the Party. Keep thinking that, and if that indeed is the case, then I don’t want any part of the Republicans.

The bottom line here is that a third-party candidate for conservatives is becoming a real and powerful option.

    Sorry I didn’t get the students into the lab today. We had some situations arise.

    Hope to hear back from you,

  2. I apologize for the viewing problems. This seems to be happening more frequently now, so we are aggressively pursuing other options.

    We hope to have news on that front soon!
