Hello everyone, today I'd like to look at the history and possibility of a third party in the US. As some of you know, I was talking about this during the summer. With the stunning defeat of the GOP & Mitt Romney, now is the time to re-examine the issue. So, here we go; first, let's look at some history.
To the chart provided by Martin Armstrong (click to enlarge):
Armstrong opines in his blogpost, Obama Wins:
"Our [cyclic] model has long shown the rise of the Democrats as we go into this economic turmoil as the Republicans have been captured by the Religious Right injecting religion into law and politics. This is very wrong for what if the majority became Shiite Muslim? Would it justified to them order all women to be clothed based upon what the majority believes at any one point in time? There should be a FULL separation of church and state. Socrates was put to death for questioning the gods.
The Democrats won because they are the ones that have empowered the majority to vote to themselves the assets of the minority. This has been the Marxist Agenda that started to blow up with Communism in 1989 and should conclude with the collapse of Socialism in the West come 2016. It is 2016 that should be the first opportunity for a third party rising in the United States.
The THIRD PARTY should emerge from the middle ground of economics. The Republicans will become the party of the religious right and they will decline further missing the entire point that this is about surviving as a nation rather than abortion and gay rights. Therefore, we should see the rise in THIRD PARTY activity going into the 2016 election. The economy will peak again 2015.75 and turn down really hard. This should seriously damage the Democrats as their false promises collapse. The Republicans have to return to the economic agenda of Reagan and abandon the Religious Right agenda that has no place in politics."
I think he's correct on his thesis and I opined in the previous Lion's Den that the GOP needs to become the "fiscal conservative" party. I believe the GOP must move beyond the religious right focus, the failed promises of its RINO "bi-partisan" politicians, not properly addressing the rising class warfare, and shift the "fiscal conservative" agenda to the economy, growth, and sound money. If the GOP fails again in 2014, the stage is set for a "can do" new conservative party in 2016.
It's past time to clean sweep the DIMWITS out and bring in a whole new team with a dedicated fiscal conservative message. Remember this slogan: "it's the economy, stupid!" Let's get going!
