Default OT: Ok, so I'm a nerd...

...but I got to thinking, don't laugh, if you could start another political party, what would you name it? I'm an Independent and I kinda feel that the salvation of our country may lie in the ability to generate a new and powerful third party in Washington. So, what would I call that party? We have the Democrats and the Republicans (who also go by the GOP for Grand Ol' Party) and back in the day I think there was the Federalist Party but that went away. I've narrowed it down to three:

1. The Independent Party (kinda says it all)
2. The Constitutional Party (Because I'm a rigid constitutionalist)
3. The Representative Party (Because I believe in more state power and less federal intervention)

If you're happy being a Republican or Democrat great! But if you're an independent like me who thinks more government means less freedom or you just don't like the current two parties in power, what say you?

Special interest groups are just too strong for anything outside the two party system to gain anything close to real momentum. Sad but true.

There needs to be a split of the GOP between fiscal conservatives and social conservatives/neocons. What is going on now is unholy.

I don't know what my party would be, but Tim Tebow would be our leader.

dont think you can fix it till you fix the first past the post system. the republicans will likely incorporate the libertarians to boost voter share.
