THE GRIDLOCK IS NOT JUST IN CONGRESS – BUT IN OUR POLITICS (DEMS/REPUBS) – IT’S TIME FOR A 3RD PARTY!

GRIDLOCK
.
The gridlock in our national politics is not just in Congress.
.
It resides within our two-party structure.  While it may have served a useful purpose for the 1st 200-years of our nation’s existence it no longer serves this country well.
.
Without at least a viable alternative to the GOP and the Democratic Party we’re going to see more protracted warfare by the two main parties against each other and consequently the high probability of more and more political inertia and gridlock just when this nation is entering into a period of profoundly pressing real-world problems.  Things like global warming, emerging nations becoming the consumers and Americans becoming the sweat shop for those nations, all-encompassing banks tightening their grip on our economy like a vise grip, and the most frightening – the emergence of a vast underclass super-imposed by a tiny, tiny but all powerful, all-wealthy super-class (the 1% of the top 1%).
.
So, let’s hear it for another version of the Bull Moose Party (think – Teddy Roosevelt – 1912).  Or maybe a Progressive coalition, starting out in California and gaining support from states like New York and Massachusetts and perhaps Michigan and Oregon/Washington.
.
Seriously, something has to “give” over the next 5-years.  The trench warfare between the Democratic Party and the GOP is eventually going to wear this country down to a frazzle.
.
Any thoughts, suggestions, comments, observations?
