The Daily Walk with Love
Our fractured, failed efforts at healthcare reform show
and at immigration reform and what has transpired in tax reform
show that it’s time for a third party in America. In the later
first half of the 19th century, the Whigs were at the center of power.
They ceased being relevant so they ceased having power.
Neither Democrats nor Republicans represent the hopes,
dreams and needs of average Americans: kick them out!

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. And
NOW is the time to get organizing!
The Daily Walk with Love, updated with additions, December 15, 2017, by Paul Evans. As seen on Fox Carolina News. This article should in no way be thought to be the opinion of anyone other than me, alone. 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:
SUMMARY: Time for a Revolution in Politics? calls on Americans to abandon both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party as no longer responsive to the hopes, dreams and needs of the American people, and asks them to get behind the third party of their choice (we suggest the Reform Party).
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. The latest is they’re talking about “bipartisanship” in the Senate, but what chance does that really have in the House. 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? I wouldn’t mind either the Reform Party or an intelligently led Green Party, but I completely admit that I don’t really know them that well.
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.?
In the sidebar of our Home page, I said “Maybe it’s time for a strong, moral Third Party — I used to think perhaps the Reform Party — to be organized and supported. Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans as now constituted represent the hopes and dreams of ordinary Americas and their ideas are NOT working. God know we’re suffering too much as it is. Maybe, to some extent, we should take advantage of ideas that work from more socialistic nations. We badly need to be more pragmatic about it: as Deng Zhou Peng (who introduced capitalism into modern China) said, ‘I don’t care if a cat is black or white, so long as it catches mice.’” Ross Perot got 18 percent as the Reform Party candidate way back when. I think we can do a LOT better than the Republicans or Democrats (as currently constituted) offer, don’t you America?
