Donald Trump 2017
“Make America Great Again!”
Our fractured, failed efforts at healthcare reform show
it’s time for a major change. In the late first half
of the 19th century, the Whigs were at the center of power.
They ceased being relevant so they ceased having power.
Maybe it’s time for a strong, moral Third Party
such as the Reform Party to be organised and supported.

Time for a Revolution in Politics?
The healthcare debacle offers evidence
that it may be time for a Third Party
in American Politics, maybe past time.
The Daily Walk with Miracles, July 25, 2017, by Paul Evans. As seen on Fox Carolina News. If healthcare is anything to go by, neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party still offer the common man anything moral and relevant. News source is With collapse of GOP health care effort, Congress faces a long ‘to-do’ list for health policy, STAT, July 18, 2017, by ERIN MERSHON @eemershon and LEV FACHER @levfacher:
STAT: “WASHINGTON — The Republican health care bill, at least for now, is dead. So what happens next?”
“But the abrupt change of plans brings to the fore a laundry list of other health policy bills that remain on Congress’ agenda for the coming months. Some are must-pass items with rapidly approaching deadlines: agreements that represent about $1 billion in private funding for the Food and Drug Administration, as well as the authorizations for federal funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and several Medicare programs, all of which expire in September.”
PAUL EVANS: Donald Trump and some Republican leaders are calling now for us to vote out Obamacare and then worry about passing healthcare insurance legislation. That sounds peachy, take away the help and protections we have with Nothing to replace them, smart, real smart. Jimmy Carter wanted Medicare for all, but now predicts eventually that we will get “single payer,” that eventually the powers that be will see that, like liberty and free speech, healthcare should be a RIGHT of being a citizen of the United States. I thought about maybe Mitch McConnell’s original idea of “starting over” in an open, bipartisan manner to craft something entirely new. But bipartisanship has become a dirty word in American politics and anyway they’d come up with something equally corrupt and evil, as in some ways Obamacare has turned out to be, at least for the common man. The GOP and the Democratic Party have now ceased representing the average American, much less the underclass. Neither one of them is a moral force in politics. What third party should we get behind?
The last election mainly went to Trump or to Clinton, the third parties fared poorly. See Third Parties Faded to the Background in a Shocking Election, TIME magazine, November 9, 2016 by Tessa Berenson. Famously, that Democratic lion, Tip O’Neal, said “all politics is local.” It takes a LOT of grass roots organising and publicity (AND money) for a third party to make a good showing. Ross Perot was almost an aberration. If we want to go the third party route, we have to get organising NOW. It might even take the support of one of the super-rich billionaires, a patriot who loves America. But which third party should we support?
In the late first half of the 19th century, the Whigs were at the center of power. They ceased being relevant so they ceased having power. America, is it time we settled on maybe a decent third party in America? It’s hard to choose but there ARE some decent ones. It isn’t strong right now but I like the Reform Party that Ralph Nader once represented. That choice would have many if not most billionaires grinding their teeth. I basically am coming to the unfortunate conclusion that BOTH the GOP AND the Democrats have ceased having solutions for the common man. However, as a Donald Trump supporter, I don’t care at all about any so-called ties to Russia, but I DO feel that it is in healthcare that Trump (and the Republican Party in general) face their “Waterloo” if they don’t do the right thing for America. Like Bernie Sanders I see that as single payer. Is it time for a relevant Third Party?? Maybe not a revolution, but a revolution in politics?
I considered supporting the Reform Party in the last election, but they are not much organised at this time, nothing like they were under Ross Perot or Ralph Nader. If not them, then someone else. We have our children to think about. America, haven’t you had enough of this b.s.?
There ARE some intelligent people in congress still attempting to bring reason to healthcare reform. See for example Congressman Mike Coffman’s column today (July 20) in TownHall, A Better Way to Healthcare Reform, where he suggests splitting up the overall healthcare reform process into three manageable “chunks.” This sounds like a decent idea. But overall, we have full gridlock in D.C. and neither party represents the common man and the poor at all. The Democrats come closer economically but so far as I am concerned, they have the wrong idea on abortion, all this transsexual garbage, the Transpacific Partnership and Clexit, which thankfully are history. Scoring points with the G.O.P. faithful must not be at the expense of achieving meaningful healthcare reform for the American people.
While I do still support President Trump, I basically think it’s time to get behind a third party, right now, while there’s time to orgranize. Anyone interested should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or get in touch with the Party of their choice. The Republican Party and the Democrats just spout political ideology and have no coherent nor useful legislation to contribute. They have become a dead weight on the shoulders of the American people. And bipartisanship died a quick death during the George W. Bush years. I don’t think Americans have any CHOICE now but to support a Third Party, may God grant that there’s still time to save America.
