I've been around long enough to be registered to and somewhat involved with a number of so-called "third party" efforts. These include the Libertarian, Peace and Freedom, Green and my very favorite defunct effort the Natural Law Party. The Greens and Libertarians have been around for at least 30 years and have NEVER expanded beyond their base of die-hard supporters. What do you think it will take for a new political party to break through and actually gain traction at the municipal, state or national levels?
