The gridlock in Washington D.C. is horrific. It appears as if both parties believe their job is to stop whatever the other Party is trying to accomplish.
The problem for the American voter is that there are only two, strong parties from which to choose with any certainty: the Republican Party and Democrat Party. Although other parties exist, like the Green Party, the fact is, they can never catch steam because they are too focused on one issue.
Dennis Michael Lynch believes there should be an Independent Party of some kind. He describes it as a Party that welcomes candidates who fight for issues based on how they impact the American people instead of how they are deemed by a “particular Party’s ideology and special interests.”
The last time an Independent ran for president and had a legitimate chance of winning was back in the 1990s. Billionaire Ross Perot resonated well with voters, but he dropped out of the race due to threats made to his family. At the time he dropped out, Perot was leading in the polls. He later reentered the race, but he had lost too much momentum by then, thus, splitting the vote with George Bush. Democrat Bill Clinton won the election, as a result.
The ballot process differs from state to state, making it nearly impossible for Independent candidates to run for president, or any public office for that matter. But, if enough Americans were to stand up and demand a change, there could be an outside chance for the birth of a legitimate Independent Party.
