New Idea for an American Political Revolution: Masse Voter Protest by not Voting for Either Party.


What if we filled Congress & POTUS during the next big election with people not running under the GOP or Democrat party? (It could be a one-time protest, not necessarily a new way for us to vote.) What if we elected a BUNCH of passionate oddballs like Trump into offices that maintain this country? At the very least, even if we did not succeed but came close - I think GOP & Dems might start thinking twice about how/why they do the things they do, and for whom. What do you think? Would it have any affect, at all? Do you think enough people would even join in the protest to make a difference?

    The idea comes from Trump & Obama. BO was the original oddball (they can be educated, not brainwashed) then we got Trump via hysteria - & still no bipartisanship. This protest might get a point across if promoted right, don't you think?

    What are you saying? Impeach for what? For someone who bring up our Constitution and not have a basic understanding of it is very unsettling.

    Trump inspired idea cuz 1) our world has not ended nor will it necessarily end just cuz someone with his inexperience & disposition is potus & 2) Its time to think outside the box: last 2 pres' from either party were meant to bring change &am

    Well, I think its kind of hard to vote out an incumbent and vote in a member of the same party at the same time - plus, I don't think that would send the message we want, either. If the parties actually felt threatened, they MIGHT change.
