    I look to see a new party emerge in the next 5 or ten years....I know there is a lot of money and interests in our 2 party system right now but I also see more and more independents out there just waiting to stand up and say enough is enough....any thoughts on this?

    Parties don't really exist any more anyway....

    I think it will be way too hard to get any viable new party off the ground. Special interests own the system now.....

    A quote from Fareed Zakaria's book, "The Future of Freedom":

    I know there are other parties out there but there are many more who are riding the fence just searching for a party that will stand up and say enough.....

    The new parties need to do some PR. Then they need to go win some LOCAL races. It does no good for a third party to have a Presidential candidate when they can't even elect a dog catcher. If I were starting a thrid party, I'd start at the local (grassroot) level and work up.

    Thats Venturas exact idea. Too bad he never followed through with it. I didnt agree with all his ideas, but they way he voiced his disgust at the 2 party system and his plan for making a 3rd party work was a good one. Start at the bottom and spread.

    The conservative superparty, "The Guns And Taxes Party". They keep taxes low and you can have all the guns and ammo you want. This unites the Buchananite protectionist jew haters and the neocon globalization jew lovers. And DK. Unbeatable.
