America Needs a Third Party
What in the world am I doing up a 05:30 AM. This is not normal for me. That is not what this is about though. Does America need a third pary. In my opionion the answer is yes. The last third party candidate to win the presidency, and I think the only third party winner ever, was Abraham Lincoln and he ushered in the Civil War. Maybe it is time for another civil war. This time it needs to be about responsible government. As long as the two party system has nothing to check or balance them they know that if they wait long enough they will get there way. Then they will simply undo what the other party did while in office. This system accomplishes nothing. Somebody needs to give direction to the arguments and move things ahead. A strong third party will not let one party have its way at the seconds expense. The third party that evolves has to have something to give it direction, a guide to wise decisions. My goal is to form the Constitutional American Reform Party of CARP for short. It will measure all its actions inline with the Constitution. If an action is not authorized by the Constitution it will not be passed and the party will attempt to reverse decisions that have been made that go against the Constitution. The party will seek a balanced budget amendment and take away a presidents right to start any wars without Congressional approval. The party will also try to do away with the present system of Committees approving expenditures. It will require all expenditures to cross the floor of Congress and be approved. The present system of tacking bills and expenditures on to larger bills will cease. If and issue is not big enough to stand on its own merit it has no need to exist. Lobbyist would or will be banned from Capitol hill. The present Congressional system has twisted and warped the original intent and purpose of the Constitution and it needs to get back to basics.
