Good 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?
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.

No. The Tea Party are nothing but standard Republicans now anyway. Libertarianism's influence there has been exaggerated.

Edit: I want the Libertarian Party to be able to win.

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.

According to the history channel Adam was an alien🤣

Some of the episodes on that Ancient Aliens show aren't that bad until the voice over goes "what if". :lol: 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.

I used to watch the History Channel for hours on end. I loved History's Mysteries and Modern Marvels, etc. But now between the History Channel and the Discovery Channel it's either Ancient Aliens, Alaskan fisherman or naked people. I was told this type of show is easier to produce and cost less. That I'm not sure of, but it could be true since the other very educational and eye opening shows of days past would in fact require a lot of research. The Discovery Networks company really need to get back to their roots or go the way of Radio Shack. :lol: Then again, I don't know their user base and whether they have good numbers or not.
