I find it interesting that when I present an Idea for a “Third party” I get a lot of argument about how hard and costly it would be, the failures of past third party attempts, lack of time and resources to prepare a new party. I even get history lessons on Lyndon LaRouch, Ross Perot, and even the Viet Nam War. Much of which was interesting but none of it addressed the issues that I brought up. The main article did answer all the objections to it.
Do not start a “New Party” but Unify the existing ones, the only problem being, finding a leader who can unite all the conservative factions. The only name mentioned was Rand Paul, I like him but I am not sure he can unite the conservatives in one action.
The only alternative offered was by Suzie; reform the Republican Party.
I wrote a Blog about that idea and what we need to do to reform the Republican Party; again I received a lot of argument about the corruption in the party, the power and control that the existing party leaders have and it is simply too late to form a third party. I wonder if some of you read it before you commented on it? The only response directly related to what I wrote was by: Chad Lewis:
1. Rand Paul or Allen West
2. Adhere strictly to the CONSTITUTION for a Platform
3. Now or later... I no longer refer to myself as a Republican in any event
So now I am asking “what do you want?”
What plan do you see for the future of our country?
What action do we need to do?
I hear a lot of complaining and very few solutions, a lot of nay saying but no alternatives. Both of my suggestions are viable actions if they are worked the way I wrote them. We can form a third party and we can reform the Republican Party; but we must take action soon for which ever path we choose. Both plans require some of the same actions and the first thing we need is Unity of action. Let us choose a path and set our minds to the work.
In the words of great Military leaders “Lead, Follow or get out of the way.”
We are now open for suggestions on action.
May God guide us on the path.
Just my thoughts for today.
