2022 2024 We Need To Develop A Viable Third Party Option

I wrote the highlighted blog three years ago. I added to the blog post today. Even though it is too late in this current election cycle to seriously consider third party options. We as a black community need to coalesce with other groups with common interests to establish a viable third party option for the 2022 and 2024 national elections. We may be concentrated on replacing Donald Trump in 2020 but replacing Trump will not solve the issues that are mounting up in our communities. Too say the Democratic Party is faultless in our current dilemmas is too be as blind as a camel with his covered in the desert sand. So, while we are looking at Biden as the only electoral option in the Fall general election tells us how little we have progressed in terms of political consciousness as a body of people. We simply have to do better and the only way that is going to happen is to create a viable third party option. Martin Luther King wanted this to happen before he was murdered. Malcolm X wanted black Americans to create options away from the current two parties that dominate our election options. I know that Stokely Carmichael wanted our black communities to develop an independent political consciousness. You know that further back Monroe Trotter and Dubois wanted black Americans to achieve black political independence. We have been used and abused politically by both parties. Neither is less guilty or less innocent. We must educate our next generations of youth to be aligned to neither party and have the ability to control its own fate finally. Not in 2020. The singular goal should be to replace Trump but in the coming elections surely we should have enough intelligence to uplift our political consciousness to coalesce with other groups with common interests to create a viable third party political choice.


THE TIME IS NOW OR NEVER
MAY 5, 2017

After yesterday's decision to allow human misery over corporate greed. It's time for the majority of Americans to wake up to the reality that our 2-Party system of representative electoral government is beyond repair. It cannot be modified, improved, or remade into a viable model that provides any measure of justice to the common people.
So in the interest of the survival not only of this nation but also ultimately the survival of the planet. The people must coalesce to create a true third party alliance made up of those whose voices are being ignored by the special interest elected representatives in an office today. These individuals represent both parties large money interest and not humanity or social or judicial humanness on any large scale.
So if we really aspire to greater human heights. Let's decide no matter our creed, ethnicity, or race to value a truly unified effort of collective resistance to those special interest forces that seek destruction over constructive solutions. We can overcome if we decide that overcoming is a valued goal in securing our futures.
