Poll calls for new national third party

December 17, 2011
The Journal

To the editor:

An NBC-Wall Street Journal Poll released on Tuesday, Dec. 13th stated that 34 percent of Americans think the political system is broken and that we need a new national third party. This poll also stated that 33 percent think that this Congress is below average compared to past Congresses and that 42 percent think this is the worst Congress ever. Seventy-five percent of those polled think Congress is failing us!

I believe that both the Democrats and Republicans are responsible for the mess this country is in! I agree with the 34 percent who say we need a new national third party. I am looking to the Modern Whig Party of America to be that centrist national third party that we all are looking for. Here in Minnesota, they are called the Whig Party. A common sense, solution oriented, service minded party of the center. Started in 2006 by Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, this party stands up for Veterans of all ages and their families. Every Veteran should belong to this party!

I hope the Whig Party of Minnesota will have a caucus in this area on Feb. 7 next year! I will be there if they do and you should join them there too. We need to choose a national third party candidate for President.
