When Brother Nick gave me a call and said that he and the others have been coming together looking for a way of breaking the duopoly and trying to allow for poor and working peoples voices to be heard, I said, Count me in.

We definitely need not just one alternative to the Demopublican monopoly, we need several. However, I am not sure about the name "People's Party." Can anybody come up with something more creative? Or maybe that is the best name.

NO! Damn it!
We do not need more splitting, and splintering, in fact it is about the last thing we need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Splitters ruined Hillary's chances, as much as Comey, IMHO!

I believe that I have read something that indicated Bernie Sanders had turned this option down. He is and will always be a loyalist to the Democrats. We do not need a progressive party, a peoples party, or any other new minor party. We have a progressive party already in existence. It is called The Green Party. Voters who are down with the Republican and Democratic parties can rally around the Green Party. There are three things that we should work towards to help third parties: Get rid of the CPD, eliminate superdelegates, and have open primaries on paper ballots. The CPD needs to be replaces with an Independent Debate Council. The restrictive rules that are in place right now keep people from learning about third party candidates. But, for voters to make truly informed voting decisions, they need to hear all candidates.
We are not likely to get the Green New Deal as long as Republicans and Democrats keep getting elected.

Don't agree Mitchell...It wasn't the splitters, as you call them, it was the money paid to the Electoral College for their votes going to Trump. Trump LOST the people's votes by 3+ Million and he should Never have been elected by the EC...they voted Against what the people in their districts wanted. Now the Democrats in charge are doing the very same things they did previously...they are Ignoring We, the People, and continuing on the same destructive path with their blinder firmly in place. We. Need. Change. Thanx Dandelion...sorry, can't give you another star even though you have earned more...

I hope they manage to establish a strong movement to compete with the Democrats and the GOP.

How about The Coalition of Constituents Party, advancing the American spirit as embodied by our founding documents: first among them our constitution and its amendments followed by our bill of rights?

E pluribus unum , Annuit cœptis, and Novus ordo seclorum.

There was a time and a spirit which lead to the formation of our "revolutionary" alliance and union. Time to unclutter and strip away the parasites that are undermining that spirit and its founding principles.

The Clinton Cartel are just as damaged a franchise, as is the Donald Duck Circus of politics.
