Kindred’s Special: Any Room for a Third Party Is Not in the Cards

Third Party candidates are more a dream than a reality because the past and current realities point to a lack of funding for a new national party.  Any candidate seeking a run for the presidency of the United States requires both wide-ranging recognition, a solid means of funding.  If either of these two conditions lack substance, it is almost impossible to break the ice and find little national coverage leading news agencies to give nothing more than wishful thinking to outside-the-beltway hopefuls.  We need only look at the strong showing of Governor Mike Huckabee in 2008 who probably fell short due to a lack of funds even though he had considerable following and national news coverage in the primaries. The Tea Party who swung support behind McCain when he picked Governor Palin shows how the two major parties operate.

The Republican Party is an old stodgy bunch of backroom cronies who seem to give the nod to those having a historic line that calls for its slogan to be: “It is my turn to have the gavel.”  To some extent, it was the birth of the Tea Party that threw a monkey wrench into this “good old boys club” mentality.  Although they threw their weight behind Senator McCain due mostly to his selecting their love Palin as his running mate, it was my belief that Huckabee was the only viable candidate to challenge the popular Barack Obama.  The fools in the Good Old Party felt that Huckabee’s granting clemency to a prisoner who was up for parole and who apparently committed another crime after release was reason enough to turn their back on this great leader. Huckabee was a minister who grew considerable recognition as a preacher and working with young and old alike. The news media hopping all over this axed Huckabee’s chances to near zero in the final  analysis despite the fairly close result.

I love Huckabee because I read his books and did research into his governing in Arkansas. He moved on and gained fame in his chosen field which he studied in college and today has a wonderful program on Fox News.  His priorities today are his family and his optimistic belief in education, especially music in schools and the wonders of American liberty, personal freedoms and well-organized skills as in interviewer.

Guess what I am saying is that even with the wide following of Huckabee, the one who wins the Republican nod is the one who has war hero status and  biggest voice in politics.

When people are asked to consider third-party runs, it seems to me that it lacks a degree of poor judgment unless the run is merely to put forth a personal point of view concerning governance.  Still, what is the purpose of such an isolated agenda?  In reality history of third-party candidates rarely get a marble in a bag of marbles.  The Moose Party is gone; the Whig Party is gone; the Conservative Party of New York, largely is an offshoot of the Republican Party;  the Constitution Party and the Green Party are barely making a voice in the wilderness; the Workers’ Party and the Communist Party have little following, etc.

I hope to soon reveal my research on the Obama and Romney era.

    Wow, the pics do their job. I am able to already taste this. But when could I suggest, what if brown sugar is sprinkled on it just right before baking? I do think that will give an appealing texture to it. I’m gonna try this a person over the weekend. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
