If you are correct, that would work well. However, I am seeing much more dissent in the Republican party than the Democratic party right now.
Bullsh*t,what do you want a one party system with the Democraps being the only party?

All this talk of a third party is well and good but the problem is, unless BOTH parties split at the same time, the party that did not split would be in control of everything for WAY too long. So, instead of talking about splitting a party, let's set up good, honest, smart Americans who believe in the Constitution to integrate into the existing parties. Let's change them from the outside in.
Our new party faction can toe the line on some party issues. Democratic... let's call them Constitutionalist for the sake of shortness can still agree with the dems on most of the issues important to democrats. The major difference is, they wouldn't sell out to Gucchi Gulch, otherwise known as those idiots that hover outside the litigation door always trying to get their way. They could take money from them but NOT change their stand on issues. If the Corporate and Special Interest idiots want to give our Constitutionalist candidate money, let them. They may as well be throwing their money down a rat-hole but if it makes them feel special...
The same thing should happen with the Republican party. Honest, good, Americans that just happen to lean to the right should invade the party in droves. They should start out with small things like city councils and Mayors of small towns, work their way up in the party, run for senator and then AFTER at least a few terms, for President. If we work at it, there are enough people on this site... and others like it to change things.
People are SICK of both political parties. They have been infected with people that LIKE having all the power. Some of these have formed the Progressive faction and yes, they ARE in both parties. Some people have gotten sick of the Republicans in general and wish to form a third party... DON'T! Unless the Democrats oblige you and split at the same time... it would be a disaster! Instead, if you possibly can and if you believe in the Constitution as it was written, start changing the parties. Yes, it would take a while for our candidates to move into a position to help. But when they do... BOTH parties would be flipped on their heads!
This is my call to all of you. DO something. Fall under a common banner, Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, we all want the Constitution to be honored and followed. Let's stop complaining about how things are in Washington, let's invade both parties and turn them on their heads!
