They wouldn't. It would have to be an established party....or, if a new party would. be created...they would have to meet certain criteria to become an established party. I mean, I just couldn't say...I'm the founding member of the Steelplate Party....now gimme my money! If I wanted to create a "Steelplate Party", I would have to have the support....via membership....of a predetermined percentage of the population.....the thing would be to set the criteria so that Joe Schmoe can't start a new party just to grab a slice of that money, but loose enough to allow for some natural growth. I would say, to start out....You would have Dems, GOP, Libertarian, Tea Party, and Democratic Socialists. That would create a good spectrum from far right to pretty far left. with the original Democratic and Republican Parties holding down the middle....I mean, you could even throw the Commies in there to go way left....But, I'd prefer not to. I despise Communism....and since this is all hypothetical....I choose not to include them....plus, we could implement the criteria in such a way that real extreme groups can't weasel their way in. It would take a Constitutional Amendment for any of this to happen....so for all intents and purposes, it won't. But if the idea ever got legs, that stuff would have to be figured out by people with more knowledge and understanding of law and procedure than me.....I think that the general population should have some input....but let's face it....all of here are "shade tree" policy makers.
