This thread is started with the intent to hear ideas on the ability to form a powerful third U.S. political party or help an existing one
become powerful. (Green, Independant, etc.)
The back and forth politics of two party deceptions must end, we need a powerful third party within 8 years or less. How can we make this possible?
These parties are an alliance of same agenda (for the most part) and when we only have two agenda's making policies, somebody is going to be left out
and avoided. We, the people of the United States have a government that was formed to take care of ALL the citizens of the United States, it is now up
to us, the citizens, to take control back!
Here are some current statistics of power held by parties:
+ Republicans: 55
+ Democrats: 44
+ Independent: 1 (Senator James Jeffords (I-VT) votes with the Democrats on procedural matters)
House of Representatives:
* Republicans: 232 (53%)
* Democrats: 202 (46%)
* Independent: 1 (Bernard Sanders of VT)
