    I've been reading up on this new party with a unique strategy that's completely focused on winning Congress (No Presidential, etc. candidates). They're called the New Revolution Party.

    I like it so far---I'd have to see who, if anyone, is putting up the cash.

    Interesting. The first thing I’d do is change the name though. The Revolution Party is, I think a bit too much. I can see the eyes roll now when someone announces “I am a member of The Revolution Party”. I think “The Citizens Party” would be a better choice.

    I think this is generally a good idea overall, but lets not forget it’s been done.
    Ross Perot, anyone? Seeing that there is already an Independent Reform Party, why not expend energy building on it instead of starting from scratch?
