Time For Third Party
Canada Free Press, by Arnold Ahlert

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/13/2013 10:49:55 AM

Last week I wrote a column about the reality that House Republicans are ready to cave on so-called comprehensive immigration reform. There was a final paragraph in that column my editor decided not to use. That is the editor’s right for two reasons: one, every site has a voice they wish to adhere to interns of form and content; and two, he who pays, gets the final say. Ironically, what was omitted by my editor was not lost on scores of astute letter writers who commented on the piece. I would like them to know that I have the same feelings

After the GOP caves on immigration, they`ll cave on climate change too. Bet on it.

I get very angry when I hear the Republicans should break off and have a Third Party. Do not be so naive and stupid; how do you think the clintons came to power; many of us were disappointed with the Republican party, and so we broke off and voted for Ross Perot. Walla, in waltzes the Clintons. Do not make that mistake; Republicans need to run a good candidate, and all stick together, or else we are doomed with the corruptions that we have, and we will just have to get used to it.

What is a good candidate? Someone hand picked by the Republican establishment........or as I like to refer to it as, Dem Lite......?? Or a candidate that is acceptable to the Tea Party & those that do not feel represented by Boehner & his ilk? Can´t have both, which good or bad will result in a 3rd party candidate.

Sorry #2. I´m all in for a third party. 90% of our legislators could care less what we think. The 10% that do get removed from key committees.

Let Cruz, Paul, Lee and those like them be the first to join the third party. Careful selection of candidates could lead to a revolutionizing change in Congress. In fact, a third party would energize those who no longer care to vote for the status quo and motivate them to go out to vote once again.

If the Republican party actually stood for anything - as in, if it had a charter anchoring it to core principles - then people could rally behind that.

As it is, people rally behind the party like they do their favorite football team. Whether that team is lousy or great makes no difference.

Many think the Republican party stands for what Reagan stood for. It doesn´t. Reagan was one Republican. Chris Christie is another Republican. They´re worlds apart, yet belong to the same party.

Partisan politics is inane. Consider the individual and his or her record and what he or she believes in.

#2, you´re absolutely right, of course. I am sympathetic, though, to those who are feeling helpless to do anything about the current state of the country. I am always an optimist and even with Barack Obama´s constant and relentless destruction of everything we believe in, I have not given up. Righting our overturned country, however, will require us to work together and not split off into several with varying goals.

The liberal establishment has its hands on the levers of the party infrastructure, as they have had except for one brief shining moment when that upstart doofus Reagan had the audacity to usurp the wall street K street Ivy league beltway school tie and secret handshake Rockefeller Bush Romney wing of the GOP. We don´t need a new party, we just need to take out the trash, throw out the old couch and let Cruz, Palin, Ryan and Jindal pick out the new furniture, as it were.

The bitter clingers with their torches and pitchforks consistently demonstrate how to organize and win locally, and know better than the liberal establishment that the American Culture is worth fighting for. The best efforts should ( and are) being made to use social media to bypass the free shrimp and merlot liberal republicans and share voter lists, donor lists and simply offer resistance to the entrenched arrogance and stupidity that gave us the mess we have.

A truly conservative party would destroy the Republican Party but it would take some years to fully implement. Meanwhile the Democ rats would continue to destroy the country. It´s really a matter of whether the republic can survive until the third party takes over. I think it´s worth the effort, but I´m afraid things are too far gone. And we need someone to actually start a third party who would get some recognition, perhaps Ted Cruz.

While many are correct that we no longer are represented in Washington, to form a third party is to split the conservative vote. There would be no stopping the libs then. Neither conservative party would garner enough votes to elect anyone. Throwing out the lifers and electing good conservatives is the answer. Term limits. Not third parties.

I hate to sound alarmist, but this country will fall apart long before a third party is viable. I´ve never seen our country so close to the edge before.

The Obama gang has handed the Republicans a huge amount of ammunition--why won´t they use it?

I totally disagree with those of you who say a third party is not the answer and that we should continue voting Republican. In my view, if everyone voted for the candidate that best represents their values, the third party candidate could win. If you vote for the Republican simply because he/she is the Republican, but that nominee doesn´t represent your views and values, then, what have you gained? You are part of the problem, not the solution. And, this has been demonstrated time and again. The Republican candidate is simply Democrat lite and so he loses. If there were a third party conservative candidate in a fair campaign and election, I believe there are enough right minded people left in America that he or she could win. Of course, I would prefer that the conservative be the Republican nominee, but since the Republican elites won´t permit that, third party is really the only option left.

Although, I foresee that if Amnesty is passed, and 30+ million new voters come into this country, that a 3rd party of Hispanic voters will emerge. LaRaza is salivating over taking control of that power away from the Dems.

They will create a 3rd "Hispanic party", and run candidates for their power, and leave the Dems in the dust !!!

That may then be the time to split the Republican party, and start a conservative party.

If the rino party does not want the gop to split, then they need to change and change fast. They can choose to return to principled conservatism or lose elections. RINOs and their supporters are no longer tolerated by many heretofore loyal republican voters.
Here is the offer (ultimatum): gop returns to conservatism and the party stays together against progressive leftists.
If not, the rino party followers lose.

Spot on, Mr. Ahlert. #2, #10, #11, and #12 regurgitate the standard Establishment response. I challenge them, however, to propose specific alternatives, other than blindly electing more Republicans (definition of insanity). We did that in 2000 and 2004. How has that turned out? The GOP is part of the problem, as it enables the status quo and stands in the way of true reform.

A third party is required to provide the focus and organization to advance Levin´s Liberty Amendments, the Fair Tax, and several other critical reforms. 501(c)4 organizations like the various Tea Parties can´t - or won´t - do it, as the current IRS targeting scandal highlights. Bite the bullet and form a proper political party to coalesce various conservative splinter groups and Reagan Democrats into an effective force. Forget the tax-exempt games and do it right.

There will be struggles in the short run, but eventually a concerted effort will prevail and relegate the GOP to third-party (or even Whig) status. The numbers are there along with the risk. Guaranteed victory? We weren´t guaranteed victory in the 1776 Revolution or in WWII, either. Sometimes, however, there is no alternative but to press ahead.

Good for the CFP. Again.

As to a third party? Meh! I think that just hands offices to the Democrats. But the alternative, the GOP, seems to offer no better prospects.

I think Dems can and will simply steal too many elections from here on. All pretense will be abandoned.

TP? GOP? Flip a coin while you still have one.

I agree with the Third Party. However, it should begin at the House level and garner enough Representatives in that arena first before we bite off the Presidency. Then work on the Senate. We only help the Democrats if we try the Presidency first.

Where´s the outrage? asked Bob Dole. It´s finally here, with interest.

Why vote for a Dem lite who never speaks for me? If the fat cats manage to cave on amnesty and weather and then give us nothing more than a lite, then this vote will go UN-cast. Period. No more no more no more. Finished with the pubs at that point. Only if there should be a third option/party, will a poll place be used. Hear that fat cats? You´re either with US or against US so let´s see your colors. Conservatives like Palin, Cruz, or fat cats like Jebby, Juan the mclame, lady lindsey or an out and out donkey like christie and rubio.

Go for it, #16!! I´m assuming you´re going to be leading the effort? Time´s a´wasting, you know. It´s easy to point fingers at those with whom you disagree for not presenting "a plan" that you can embrace. Where´s yours and when will you be implementing it? If you don´t want to start a third party by stepping out, there are many, many already in existence you could join. I understand and sympathize with the frustration of those who insist on a third party, but either do something about it or give up the fantasy.

It is far more likely, and far faster, to impeach O-Bomber and install Bidunce as prez,
than to succeed with a third party.

With a sufficient victory in 2014, we could manage to impeach and convict O-Bomber,
who is clearly a criminal and a fraud.

Bidunce as a POS POTUS would be far easier to beat in 2016 than Hill-err-ee-ass Herself.
Bidunce would block Hill and probably not want her liabilities in a veep pick.
If he did take her for veep, it would just be more motivation for Red Staters.

Impeachment or secession of portions of states would be more likely than a
third party scenario.

Encourage Northern Colorado to break away, and Eastern California to break away.
These regions would help alter the Electoral College picture longterm.

You cannot ask Cruz and others to throw away their personal chances to become POTUS
for the quixotic pursuit of a new party. Not gunna happen if they´re smart.

You could have avoided this by electing Romney, but he was not perfect for you.
Now you want to commit political suicide yet again, this time with a different weapon.

Just elect Ted Cruz president, and you have a Harvard educated Reagan in power.
Much faster than a losing third party effort.

Talk of a third party may be emotionally gratifying, but the reality of one would be a disaster. What kind of media coverage do some of you suppose a conservative third party would receive? And do you actually think its convention would be carried by the networks? Please get real.

Read up on the history of third parties. They don´t last and don´t work. Things would turn out no differently in this instance.

The dissatisfaction with recent presidential nominees is understandable, but remember that in every case we had to choose from among a group of announced candidates. If no trustworthy conservative with the resources or ability to run a strong national race enters the fray, that is not the fault of RINOs, RNCers or other establishment types.

One might argue that we only have two branches of one party as it stands. Part of me wishes that the majority of alleged Republicans would formalize their membership in the Democrat party so Cruz, Lee, Paul and a few others can simply move on with things. Then again if some alleged democrats would formalize their standing with the CPUSA it would also help clarify things.

#22´s response to my "challenge" to be specific makes my point. There are no specific effective alternatives to a new party. Only the blame game. Trust me: if the opportunity is available I will be actively involved, as I was in 2010. However, those who wish to lead, must lead the way. We each have our calling.

I´m also a third party advocate, and predict one will start to GET wings before the end of the year.

As I wrote here a week or so ago, conservatives have nothing to lose by forming a third party. We have NO representation by either the republicans nor democrats, as things stand. I also opined there are many conservative leaning democrats whom would never become republicans (and why should they, I wrote, there´s not enough difference between the two parties), but will join a third party.

this ´working within the party´ crap which Limbaugh, and others have been preaching has not, and will not work. Look at the 2010 House elections, for example. What did the Tea Party gain? I submit NOTHING. Boehner is no better for the country than Nancy Polosi.

Ah! Sometimes a good rant is refreshing.

A third Party is premature until we get a second party. At present we have a leftist duopoly claiming the progressive banner. Reality is the R´s were never a principled conservative party, as the British Tories were ages ago. Never. Excepting Coolidge, Goldwater and Reagan, the GOP has nominated a succession of feckless and inept buffoons since Taft in ´12 and the average voter has little further interest. Of course the usual suspects posting are jake w/this as long as their candidate has the proper schooling, genteel manners, knows the right people, good breeding and the rest of these shallow attributes. The GOP´s mission is to carry water for corporate interests; nothing more. The immigration fandango is mute testament to that. A decent burial long overdue.

Attitudes like the one expressed in #30 are part of the problem.

We, the people, are the ones who are supposed to have the actual political power. Abrogating that power to others because they have position, authority or money is why we find ourselves fighting this battle today. The idea that we have nothing to offer but hot air and the contempt for our audacity to believe that we have the right to declare and fight for our ´political´ wishes is exactly why so many of us believe that we need somewhere else to go.

#33, I believe you misunderstood #30. That poster is not saying anyone doesn´t have the right to go third party, but is just pointing out that it is very difficult and that no one with the means to do so has volunteered to lead. So, the wishing and hoping and dreaming is probably fun, but not very productive.

It´s just simple math, and relativity.

If we go third-party again, as in Ross Perot in 1992, the Republican will obviously have no chance to win, ergo, the Democrats will win hands down - no contest.

Either you want to shoot the moon, and take us down faster so we will eventually hit such a miserable bottom that people will theoretically see the light - something certain posters here still profess from time to time; or, like most rational people, you would prefer to avoid the worst of the worst (Democratic win) - in which case we at least have a chance to make things better, and in the meantime, at least slow down the slide to oblivion for future generations.

Not that Einstein will cut any ice with some people - but it´s all relative in this situation, and anyone who says Romney, or most any other alleged Rino, would have been as bad as Obama is not being honest with themselves, or with us.

"Karl Rove, McCain, Boehner, McConnell and the rest of the effete RINO elites"

I haven´t seen anyone on this thread telling anyone else for whom to vote. As for your list, Karl Rove isn´t in an elected office, Boehner can only be voted for or against by people in his district, MConnell´s future will be decided by his constituents. Now, what others are you being encouraged to support against your will? It´s easier on the digestive system if you talk about what you want to see rather than what you´re angry about.

The Whigs said the same thing... a third party would be useless....

Well, where are the Whigs today? That´s right... they are no longer around because they didn´t heed the warnings coming from their ranks and were more concerned with their party agenda than what was right or wrong or the beliefs of their party voters......

Sound familiar?

The third party idea is idiotic. When has a third prty ever won a presidential election? Who is willing to wait that long?

You should go to the polls and vote for the the major party which most nearly represents your views. If you don´t, the other party will win.

Ann Coulter was recently interviewed by author, journalist and talk radio host Howie Carr on his program; her commentary was pure establishment balderdash. Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith.

Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

In two years, a national movement for a constitutional convention of states will be a hot issue “over and above the presidential election,” the effort’s Georgia state director predicted. “To me and to us, this is liberty or death,” said Jacqueline S. Peterson,at a South Hall Republican Club meeting on Monday night at the Hall County Library System’s Spout Springs branch in Flowery Branch. “And if there’s some kind of chance we can take (the country) back, by God, then we’re going to do it.” She and her husband, John Clark, district captain for Convention of States, talked about the push under Article

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

House Speaker John A. Boehner, who has tangled repeatedly with the right wing of the Republican Party, has not been invited to this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, a major snub at the annual gathering and a sign of the top Republican officeholder’s struggle to find common ground with grass-roots activists. People familiar with CPAC’s planning, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, said the American Conservative Union, which hosts the event, never sent an invitation to Mr. Boehner, in part because it wanted the focus this year to be on leading conservative thinkers at the grass-roots level and not

Some American Thinker readers may be aware that at the end of December (2013) Tim Burton, a host for Liberty Great Britain (GB) radio was charged by West Midlands Police (England) with "racially aggravated harassment." Mr. Burton´s "hate crime" was a post on Twitter which described Fiyaz Mughal (who runs an "anti-Islamophobia" website/organisation called Tell MAMA) as a "mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artist." As a result of all this, Burton was supposed to have stood trial on the 18th February 2014 at Birmingham Magistrates´ Court. However, that court appearance has been postponed for seven weeks.

More told the Senate committee that he decided to leave Greenpeace because it was more concerned with politics than it was with the environment.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
