There have Third Parties in America in frequency since the early 1900s. Most of these Third Parties have served as a rallying point for Americans that are disenchanted with the politics as usual in Washington, DC. This means the disenchantment was aimed at both the Democrats and Republicans.
As time has gone on though the fire that attracted people to a particular Third Party in America’s modern era began to feel more enfranchised by associating themselves with the closest elements representing their politics whether it be Democrats or Republicans. I suspect that is the reason fringe Leftist and fringe Right groups never really grow because they represent a narrow political agenda of the political spectrum.
I have noticed though that it seems Leftist fringe political parties tend to have existed longer than political parties considered on the fringe Right. For example there has been a national Communist Party (in one form or another) since the Bolshevik Revolution that brought Communists to power in Russia circa 1917.
Third Parties of the political Right tend to be centered on Christianity and Original Intent Constitutionalism. Some of these political parties may have had a blip of importance in national politics; however one or two things tended to evaporate these Third Parties on a national scale.
The first thing is the ire of voters seems to coalesce on a national grassroots basis. Voter ire seems to dissipate as factions within the Republican Party begin to carry the voice of disenfranchised voters draining a prominent Third Party of national support.
The second thing is a charismatic person attracts Conservatives like a magnate because the person appears to represent the voice of disenfranchised voters on a national basis. Ross Perot comes to mind.
Today’s Tea Party Movement has not evolved into a National Tea Party primarily as the result of the grassroots nature of the Movement. Tea Partiers have wisely kept themselves enfranchised and influential by allying themselves to the Republican Party. Thus there is a local effort to promote Republican candidates that have Tea Party values over the Republican establishment or RINOs.
Still there are Conservative political Third Parties attempting to gain national attention (List of 3rd Parties of Left & Right) to offer a candidate that is able to reject Center-Left to Fringe-Left political ideas that reject Christianity, Constitutional Originalism and Conservative Politics.
The Constitution Party currently has the reputation as the largest of the Conservative Third Parties. I have considered several times to inch up to the Constitution Party; however I have come to the conclusion that the only way to keep President Barack Hussein Obama a one term President is to vote Republican whoever the GOP candidate turns out to be.
Now the whole reason on this little thought process of Third Party politics in the USA is a WorldNetDaily article of the American Independent Party nominee for President – Laurie Roth.
Ms Roth is a radio talk show host from my home State of Washington (Currently I reside in Oklahoma). The whole idea of a Conservative candidate hailing from the unfortunate Left leaning Washington State fascinated me. Washington State is God’s country in beauty, but it is horribly twisted politically – to my shame.
