If there is to be a new Party, here is how it happens, the Texas GOP pulls out of the National Party, and other State delegations join them to create a new movement, I believe that is the only viable way to start a new Party.
Possible, or there may be a new party any number of ways.
What matters is it starts now. Now.
And for all the chumps who keep pulling the “R” lever and then venting after every election where the GOP pulls a Lucy Van Pelt on conservatives, well, you’re chumps and you’ll likely always be chumps, because you’re not learning the obvious lesson being laid out in front of you.
The way to start a new party is at a state or regional level, and then start picking off everything we can get, from county commissioners to House seats. This can be done and it can be done on a fairly limited budget.
Once enough seats in the House are taken that the GOP has to deal with a third party in Congress, then the GOP can be given an ultimatum.
For those who think that a new political party can’t arise: Tell that to the Whigs.
The fact is, we’re broke as a nation. We have two spendthrift political parties in power and both of them are liars when they say they’ll cut spending. Anyone who knows even basic mathematics can see that the problem with the federal budget (and state budgets) is on the spending side. That the GOP cannot find one program to eliminate completely - zero out the budget, eliminate the employees, sell off the buildings that house them - is an indication that they’ll never be serious about cutting spending.
The debt and spending issue is as big or bigger than the slavery issue of the 1800’s. It is an issue that will define who we are as a nation for decades and decades to come. It is an issue with financial as well as moral/ethical ramifications, just as slavery was.
