    Is it time for a third party?

    I shudder at the thought of opening a European style can of worms. But I wonder if now isn't a good time to start a third party.

    I vaguely remember the Tea party but I don't remember the details and don't remember why it failed. Could something like that be resurrected?

    Part of its failure was because Obama instructed the IRS to go after it and other conservative groups. Search "Lois Lerner".

    I wouldn't mind seeing Trump take the helm of the Libertarian Party. Already a national structure in place.

    There has been a third party for many years.
    Libertarian.
    They espouse many things I embrace. Very limited government. Personal freedom.
    And more.
    Traditionally they do best at local/state levels.
    The parties of big government control of our lives, the Democrat and Republican, have convinced the general public that Libertarians are crazy.
    That has hampered them at the national level. They have had a candidate in every presidential election for decades, but are not even allowed on the debate stage.

    I third political party will not get enough traction to gain ground in this political climate.

    It might if Trump was their candidate. Maybe that's part of the reason Rs & Ds are still so afraid of him.
    Especially if 71 million keep following him.

    If Trump led the Liberation party they would be banned from all media and not allowed to be heard in any form or fashion. We will not get through this by voting.

    I think a lot of folks have been so disappointed with the Republican party the last few days that they'd be open to options.

    ...of course, a third party would just split the conservative vote.

    Agreed. Trump is no longer politically viable.
