Trump and Biden are the two most unpopular candidates in history, now is the best time in history to have a 3rd party come in and crush them if we can get enough money behind it.
dont take my word for it,
RFK is pulling 22% away from biden and trump
and their approval ratings are in the dumps
even in california
guys….the writing is on the wall. Biden and Trump are not what americans want.
the only thing I want to present as an objective fact here is that biden and trump are unpopular among the electorate, thats it.
this would be a perfect time to have a 3rd party come in and help begin the dismantling of the duopoly.
and yet, and yet, I see people balk at the idea of a 3rd party.
Typically the people I see hating 3rd parties fall under several camps.
2) people who like the status quo and dont want change in the country
3) people who fear one of the 2 mainstream parties, usually in some weird unwarranted way through media propaganda
If you hate 3rd parties, which of these camps do you fall under?
3rd party will force the 2 parties to no longer do nothing, they suddenly need to appeal to their voters and actually do the things they want. Democracy is literally just like a free market, it works best when there is abundant competition. thats why I get so mad at short sighted incels who say third parties are bad, when they only do good things in the long term if we can fund them enough. You know how public schools are failing because we dont fund them enough? Same with 3rd parties.
What really makes me mad is that when you have the position of “we cant do 3rd party now because….”, essentially it puts you in a position where you can indefinitely move the goal post. As long as this thing that will never change never changes, then we cant risk a 3rd party…??? I know its just as infantile as it sounds. So when are we allowed to have change?
Those who see the value in 3rd parties, I want thoughts.
