This Presidential Election is where Americans needs to rid our chains of the two-party system. Why can’t we the people have a third, fourth, fifth, or even six viable candidates? Here is exactly what I propose, the Democratic and Republican Party Leadership need to do if they want to maintain any amount of control at their Conventions. Obviously I am saying that my proposal needs to be done before their Conventions, once I have given you the list of five and the reason why them, then decide what you think of the idea okay?
First I would like you to think about Ms. Hillary and Mr. Sanders on the Democratic side of the political aisle. Mr. Sanders policies make him more liberal than the policies of Ms. Hillary. Mr. Sanders is not a registered Democrat, he is just like me, a registered Independent, even though he seems to vote with the Democrats most of the time. It would be easy to see why Mr. Sanders would choose to go as a third candidate platform on his own, or if the DNC thinks that Mr. Sanders will cause the Party too much grief at their Convention they could just divorce him from them now. The ‘Main Stream’ Democratic Machine has chosen Ms. Hillary as their candidate so if the Democratic folks have a Conservative Candidate to put up on the spit they should get that option also shouldn’t they?
Concerning the RNC ‘Main Stream’ Republicans they fume at the thought of Senator Cruz being their Candidate because evidently to know him is, ‘to not like him’. Main stream Republicans hate the ‘Tea Party’ as mush as the Tea Party people hate the Republican main streamers. This mixture of theologies from its inception was a divorce waiting to happen. Now folks, now is a real good time to file that paperwork. Also folks we need to consider Mr. Trump and what he has brought to the Republican Party as far as turnout for the Republican Primaries. There is no doubt that the leaders of the RNC would love it if Mr. Trump decided to fall off the face of the earth or, just get the heck out of ‘their’ party. What I am saying is the RNC should excommunicate Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz from the Republican Party right now thus severing ties with the Tea Party in the process. Under these conditions the ‘Establishment Republicans’ would need someone as their Candidate. Would they go to ‘the last man standing’ in Governor Kasich, or maybe revert back to Mr. Rubio, or maybe Mr. Romney?
For now think about five choices on the Presidential Ballot form and anyone can vote for anyone of the five, Clinton, Sanders, Trump, Cruz, or Kasich. Now, would you as a voter feel more like your voice may be heard than with only the normal two choices the RNC and the DNC decide we should get to vote on? The way the DNC has backed Ms. Hillary is disgusting. Honestly folks, there should not be any such a thing as ‘super delegates’, how in the heck are they Constitutionally legal? They give a very very tiny percent of the people a huge amount of say-so on as to who gets their Parties nomination. You know we the people get enough B.S. thrown at us with this ‘Electoral College’ garbage then we the people have to put up with ‘these Very Privileged’ people! Folks why not have (Our Votes) cast on at least these five options on election day this November 1st? Then about two weeks later if no one person received at least 50.001% of the vote let there be another election two weeks later between the top two vote receivers. Then we the people would have another thing to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. Thankful that the two weeks of the political ads are over with, and that ‘we the people’ finally had a bit of actual ‘say-so’ as to who our next President will be. I’m just saying folks…
What has Mr. Trump done to the Republican Party? The answers to that are many I’m sure, some good, some bad, some real bad, but at least he is bringing life to a dying old white man’s party like it has not seen in our life times. I am an independent whom most times tend to vote Republican, but not always. Until I learned more about him, I had been rooting for Senator Rubio, now I am for Senator Sanders as a first choice, then Donald Trump as a second choice. This is my first two choices of the remaining four possibilities of people who we will get to vote for. I said four because even though I personally believe he would be the best President of the five remaining candidates, I think he has the least chance of the five of getting their party’s final blessing, this person is Governor Kasich of Ohio. Because I do not believe that Governor Kasich has any chance at all I look at the reps from each party as having two possible people to choose from. Senator Sanders has brought out many new voters to the Democratic Party as Mr. Trump has done with the Republican Party. There are many lessons the main stream media as well as the talking heads on their news programs are learning, slowly but they are being force-fed reality.
For the Republican Party the lesson is simple, most people in our country either never bothered to register to vote or were registered but just don’t tend to bother because you as a Party never bothered to put a candidate up for Office that was worth voting for. Our media here in America as well as the Party’s themselves have grown comfortable with the theology that if you are a Democrat you are a liberal and if you are a Republican then you were a conservative but the reality is that this assumption is not correct. Within most party’s of any size there are different levels of devoutness to the leaderships policies, but because you yourself are of a minority group within the Party, you tend to stay quiet, you only strike for changes when you become the majority within your Party. Most folks know that a decade or so back a political movement was born in America called the Tea Party which aligned themselves with the Republicans, just a more conservative version of the main stream Leadership on policy issues. Since then the Tea Party has put up many different people to run against sitting Republican Congress and Senate members because this group doesn’t consider the sitting member as being conservative enough. We have forgotten a group of people in this discussion and this would be the members of the Republican Party whom happen to be more Liberal in thought than the current sitting Leadership. Liberal and Republican, never, those two words can’t go together in the same sentence can they? But yes there are many, millions in fact, they are called, the disenchanted.
Disenchanted as in those who oppose the Democrats platform flat-out so they won’t vote for them but you, the Leadership of the Congress and Senate within the Republican Party keep putting up candidates that are so Conservative that they won’t vote for them either. But now Mr. Trump comes into your equation and blows your stats all to helium. You and the talking heads and the Media folks just can’t figure things out, folks the problem is you yourself. If all the people in this country did actually vote the Republicans and the Democrats would find that the extreme majority of the American people whether they are Democratic, Republican or Independent do lean toward the middle. We the people are sick and tired of gridlock in D.C. and at state and local levels, we want you to compromise on most things so that the Nation as a whole can rock and roll! It is you the main stream politicians who are the most guilty for screwing up our Country! Mr. Trump and these new followers of the Republican Party are talking to you the Republican Party Leadership, if you want to keep your job, you better listen. As an Independent I am telling the Republican Party Leadership that the worse thing that could happen to your Party is if an extremist like Senator Cruz becomes your Party’s Candidate. I say extremist like Mr. Cruz because he has made it his platform that ”he will not negotiate with the Democrats”. Folks he is the king of gridlock! The majority of the American people are ‘Moderates’, we are not Liberals and we are not Conservative. The Party that understands that first and adapts their ‘platforms’ accordingly will win the most elections. After all isn’t you staying in Office what your politics are all about?
