A third party could be of any ideology. There are many ideologies that don't see the light of day. I was hoping for a party that is less authoritarian than the Republicans while being center-right on economics, but that's just my preference.Mick wrote: ↑Mon Jan 20, 2020 9:41 amGood luck with that, new parties have appeared and disappeared for as long as I can remember in the UK without getting elected. The only one that really made any difference in my lifetime was the Brexit Party and they had no intention to rule they just had a solid modus operandi - they achieved exactly what they wanted.
Incidentally, what flavour would a third party be in the US? The way I see it the Republicans are conservative which ever way you look at it. The Democrats are middle of the road, more like the Liberals in the UK, so I can only imagine any new (major) party would have to be hard left or Marxist?
No. The Tea Party are nothing but standard Republicans now anyway. Libertarianism's influence there has been exaggerated.
You’re correct, for some reason I assumed it was to do with parties. Apparently the left and right wing thing comes from the French Revolution.
Some of the episodes on that Ancient Aliens show aren't that bad until the voice over goes "what if". Certainly a lot of interesting sites and information, they would of been better off if they just skipped the alien line but that doesn't attract viewers.
