    Much has been made of the idea of a third American Political Party. What with the political campaign of 2016, a mess of unrivaled magnitude, perhaps it is time for a body of thinking to emerge. My intent is to foster positive thinking, along those lines. With gratitude to Hillay Clinton, I have even been moved to think of a title for said party.
    “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.
    ”She said the other half of Trump’s supporters “feel that the government has let them down” and are “desperate for change.” Hillary Clinton, 2016

    It is time, as the time is ripe, for the "AMERICAN DEPLORABLE PARTY" OR "ADP".
    The ADP should be the party of Americans left behind. Those who pay taxes and are never considered.
    Those who consider themselves Independant and trust to their own judgement and understanding.
    Those who volunteer to help others who require assistance and need.
    Those who have a love for the United States of America and still feel this Nation is a "shiny light on a hill".
    Those who genuinely want to immigrate here and BE American.
    Those who are born here and ARE American.
    Those who are marginalized, be they straight, queer, lgbt, different, strange or whatever.

    The above list is short for a reason, which is, when formed, the party will list it's values. And it will list those thoughts which it refuses to endorse. In a general sense the ADP will not serve anyone, regardless of race, creed or code for any reason who in way, shape or form would harm the United States, it's Constitution and it's Flag.
    The motto for this party, The ADP, should be, "BE AMERICAN OR BE DAMNED"!
    We will not be any misfits puppies nor will we, as "Deplorables", accept any person who does not have the interests of this Nation at heart.
    P.S. Quite frankly, I am sick and tired of Republican, Democratic, Liberal, Quasi Conservative, Progressive, Socialist, Facist, Communist double speak. It is time to return to the basics and this party, whatever named, should be the party of the true American. Only then will true American values be restored and will America be great again.



    MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA

    I could see an informal Parliament type Coalition between parties. Where each one keeps its current set up and operations. They share ideas and resources to support common goals, projects, campaigns, reforms or fundraising. But keep their own identities and party platorms. So they can retain freedom to collaborate or work separately as needed

    Like states in a union that keep the best advantages of both

    The way I see it, political parties should by law exist no more than 20 years. Give 'em a charter like a corporation--- after 20 years whether they've accomplished what they wanted or not --- out they go. Whoever's left can go start new parties... by then they're gonna be most likely fractured anyway.

    If you don't do that, then you get old, entrenched political parties that no longer stand for anything except self-preservation. Like we have right now. Break 'em up like breaking up AT&T, sez I. :death:

    The Libertarian Party had the greatest opportunity for itself teed up and ready to be red-assed, then they nominated a couple of washed up, incoherent GOP rejects, who wouldn't know a consistently applied principle if it fell on them.

    Ayn Rand was right.

    Actually it sounds to me like the Know Nothings, the nativist "100% American" anti-immigrant party originally called the American Republican Party (not related) and then the American Party.or Native American Party, open only to and dominated by white Protestant men -- in a way, the spiritual ancestor of the Klan.
