60% agree that it’s time for a third party. Millions have been waiting for a party that is pro-life, pro-family, pro-worker and pro-environment.
And I find it refreshing to hear somebody admit that the President isn’t omnipotent — that society is much more than government.
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.
There’s something admittedly quixotic about backing not just a Third Party, but a new Third Party.
But I’ve been politically homeless for 11 years. I’ve told how the GOP abandoned sanity, and I’ll not tell it again now. But the Democrat party will not even allow a convention speech by anyone who hasn’t sworn fealty to abortion on demand. One of their own has described the 2016 abortion plank as insane.
Consider this low-water mark for the two major parties:
Each of the major presidential candidates is so divisive that it’s a blessing neither of them chose to visit. It’s also very sad: presidential election opponents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, even George W. Bush and Al Gore, could have (and probably would have) changed their plans and made an appearance in Dallas, after the worst strike against law enforcement in more than 100 years. This year, neither of the candidates has any place preaching healing or unity.
That’s all I care to say about the two major parties. If you really think there’s a heartbeat or brainwave there, no third party is likely to win you over.
The American Solidarity Party is consistently pro-life. It’s pro-family, pro-worker and pro-environment not just rhetorically, but by backing subsidiarity as the political ecosystem that allows them to thrive.
I’ve found a comfortable political home, which isn’t the most important thing in the world, but feels awfully good at the moment.
