America needs a Socialist Party
Whether inspired by Democrat or Republican ideologies, poll after poll has shown an increasing distrust of the federal government to act on behalf of the American people. The American people don't trust their government to be honest with them, think it has become too big, too powerful, and is out of control with overspending and regulations. Despite this damning indictment, politicians of both parties continue to wrangle over who gets what of the Washington pie while ignoring the deep rooted discontent that is festering among the people they represent. The political proceeds of this endless Washington charade eventually evens out between the parties using the popularity pendulum to reward each party during its upturns. Both retain approximately the same numbers for each voter base with each party sometimes having an edge over the other, all the time ignoring the people's wishes so that nothing ever actually changes in Washington.
This status quo is destroying America.
The Democrat Party is presently enjoying one of its upturns. Sweeping social changes like ObamaCare and selective enforcement of immigration law has divided democrat voters into socialist Pelosi-ites and old-time moderate democrats. The Republican Party presently the underdog is experiencing the same divisions among its voter base. The moderate republicans and the old-time conservative republicans. The ideologies of moderate democrats are closer in line with moderate republicans than the Pelosi-ites of their own party. Conversely, conservative republicans disown the moderate republicans as being too liberal. The whole system is out of kilter and the socialist Obama administration are using the turmoil to dramatically change American values.
In America, both Democrat and Republican ideologies have been bushwhacked by far left extremist supported by the mainstream media.
The Democrat Party leadership has been infiltrated by socialists like Obama, Pelosi and Reid, and the Republican Party has been taken over by moderates like McCain, Boehner and McConnell, who are more like moderate democrats than the conservatives they represent. The Republican Party leadership is far too moderate to be able to counteract extremist socialism. They are too easily bullied by Obama.
This uneasy state of party politics has encouraged many voters from both parties to group together in a common cause known as the TEA Party. The TEA Party is not really a party, more a banding together of the thousands of voters unhappy with the problems caused by the status quo in Washington . The leading elite from both parties view the Tea Party as a threat to the voter base of each party and are working together to discredit it. This strange alliance to destroy the TEA Party should be a red flag to supporters of both parties, but with the media's help, voters seem to be falling for the spin.
Many Americans of both parties are unhappy with the direction the nation is heading and with the formation of the TEA Party alternative have sent a message to the status quo that the two party system needs to change for it to survive.
It is this editor's opinion that when the Democrat Party consisted of moderate liberals and the Republican Party consisted of right leaning conservatives, the political pendulum kept the nation on a prosperous path, but when socialist liberals took over the Democrat Party and moderate conservatives the Republican Party, the nation started its disastrous free-fall into ruin.
It is also this editor's opinion that a TEA Party or Libertarian Party added to the mix is not the answer because they still leave the majority of moderate democrats without a suitable political home. To house all the voters to their satisfaction will require the addition of a Socialist Party to the Democrat, Republican mix. All the socialists in one party, the moderate democrats and moderate republicans in another, and so-called TEA Party supporters to take over a conservative Republican Party. All voters would be among their own kind and America could resume the task of being the greatest and most prosperous nation ever.
There is one other benefit to this three party system that must be mentioned, the Socialist Party would soon fade away along with its voter base, leaving the Democrat and Republican Parties to resume their roles of building America the way they had before.
It is just my opinion. What do you think.
