Voters Need the Input and Impact of a Third Party

James Madison wisely observed, “When the variety and number of political parties increases, the chance for oppression, factionalism, and non-skeptical acceptance of ideas decreases.” Marginalized policy initiatives can often bubble up into the mainstream because of independent candidates and third parties.

To defeat Donald Trump at the convention, the devil is in the details of the Republican rulebook.

Delegates to the 2016 Republican convention “actually own the rights to control the convention, but most of them don’t know it. They’re convinced they have no choice. They get lied to all the time.” That’s the inside baseball assessment of Curly Haugland, the longtime Republican National Committee (RNC) member from North Dakota. Haugland served on …
