Days Ahead of My Time

More than two-thirds of Americans would consider voting for a third-party presidential candidate, while nearly half of all voters think a third-party is needed, a new poll shows.
Sixty-eight percent of voters said they would “definitely vote for” or “consider voting for” a third-party candidate whom they agreed with on most issues, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll Friday.

Only 28 percent said that they would definitely not vote for an independent candidate.
Americans are split over whether the creation of a third-party is necessary, however — 48 percent consider a third party necessary, while 49 percent say that it is not necessary.
The most likely to support the creation a third party? A majority of independents (61 percent), liberals (60 percent) and moderates (51 percent) said that a third party was necessary.
The Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted Jan. 12-15, with a sample of 1,000 adults and a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

As I said only days ago there is strong support by the Angry Joes for a new fiscally conservative party that is socially moderate.  This isn't rocket science and the fact that the social conservatives keep trying to claim 60% of America as "conservative" is complete BS, 60+ % of Americans are fiscal conservatives that have lots of differing opinions on the social issues.  I will keep beating this drum as long as it takes to wake people up to the fact that America is a fiscally conservative country fed up with the crap the two parties are shoveling in Washington.  They have looked to the Republicans and that was a failure and then they turned to the Democrats and that was a bigger failure. 

We are now out of options and the election of 2012 will be the beginning of the end for the current two parties.  Whether we have three parties or two will likely be those social cons because they will never accept anything less than a complete social con.  They will likely still win seats here and there, but the fiscal cons will build a powerful majority over the liberals and social cons.  It is not a bad thing to have three parties if they represent the people and keep the federal government in check.  I have always said a strong fiscally conservative middle would force the extremes of both parties back to the middle where most of the country lives.  I know that I will take a huge amount of heat for being a social con traitor, but I still believe what I believe regardless.

I only hope more people wake up to the new reality in time for 2014 and 2016, so we don't waste another four years appeasing the parties.  We owe nothing to the parties and since they have stopped listening to the people they need a swift kick in the ass.  The Republicans are gloating that the Democrats are losing registered voters, but the thing they aren't telling is those voters are not going Republican they are going unaffiliated.  With 68% willing to vote third party that means a good third party candidate can win regardless what the diehards of the parties do.  I posted the scenario a couple of days ago.

Now is the time to prepare and gel what we want in 2014 and 2016 because it is going to take money and lawyers to make sure every ballot is open to us.  Angry Joes the time is near to make a fundamental change in this country.  We can no longer listen to the talking heads carry water for the establishment and tell us the grassroots anger is gone with the Tea Party.  We are still angry and we are still here.  We need to keep telling Washington at every opportunity who we are and what we want.  We are the Angry Joes and we want to return sanity to Washington through fiscal conservatism.
