I am an old Reaganite Conservative who was very outspoken about NOT spitting the vote in the past elections. I reasoned that a split would mean sure victories for liberals, but the losses have forced me to change my mind.
Look at the Karl Rove supported Romney. The establishment poured money into, and effectively propped up a sure loser while the mass of the conservative movement bickered back and forth about who they wanted to run. A big percentage of the Teaparty stayed home. A big percentage of the evangelicals stayed home. And practically all of the libertarians, especially after Boo-hoo Boehner booted them out of the RNC, stayed home out of protest.
Center right America has been without representation for a long time. I think it is time for a new party to rise up and crush both the liberal commies, and the big government Rove RINOS.
Breitbart – Is American ready for a strong third party? If so, what kind–what ideology? Right? Left? Center?
One thing is for sure: Across the board, people are mad. According to a January survey conducted in by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, 53 percent of Americans think that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms. That is the first time in the history of the Pew data, we might note, that a majority has felt so threatened by its own government.
Meanwhile, according to the same Pew poll, a mere 26 percent of Americans say that they can “trust the government always or most of the time,” while 73 percent say that they can trust government “only some of the time,” or that they can “never” trust it.
Such findings don’t seem very favorable for incumbents, or for the establishment in general. And so, looking at these data, one might have thought that President Barack Obama would have had a tough time winning re-election last year. But of course, Obama was lucky enough to be challenged by a man who seemed to be even more of a part of the establishment, Mitt Romney.
Still, looking ahead to the 2014 midterm elections, members of Congress in both parties might be a bit unnerved by yet another Pew data point showing that just 23 percent of Americans approve of the national legislature. To be sure, approval of individual lawmakers is much higher, but when overall disapproval is that high, there’s the distinct possibility that a “throw the bums out” election could be on the way.
Meanwhile, thoughtful observers and journalists are attempting to explore some of the implications of these data, including the possibility of a peaceful overturning of our two-party duopoly… Keep Reading
