Posted on 11/08/2012 5:38:40 AM PST by Hojczyk
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is calling for the creation of a third political party saying it is clear to him that neither major political party is willing to address the nations economic problems.
We need a third party to save this country, Cain told American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer. This country is in trouble and it is clear that neither party is going to fix the problems we face.
Cain agreed with Fischers assessment that conservatives are growing tired of being ignored by Republican party leadership and that many believe the GOP no longer speaks for them.
Cain said it was troubling that Mitt Romney received fewer votes than John McCain did in 2008 suggesting that many conservatives did not vote on Tuesday.
I dont believe the Republican Party has the ability to rebrand itself against the mainstream media machine that blatantly works to support this president and other liberals as well as the Democrats, Cain told the radio host.
Cain said it would take money, leadership and at least 50 coalitions to create a viable third political party.
You need one for every state because of the whacky rules state by state that they have that make it difficult for a third party to emerge, he said. He said the new party could be made up of not only disenfranchised Republicans but also Democrats.
There are just as many disgruntled Democrats would probably be a part of this movement as there are Republicans who are sick of the political class, Cain told American Family Radio. Realistically, it is more viable today than it has ever been.

Yo Herman, tell me more.
The 9-9-9 Party?
He’s right. The Dims are communists and the GOP is a broken relic.
Splitting the vote won’t help.
Love and apparently West lost. Dems won’t cross party lines.
This was winnable. Obama had ten million fewer votes. Our voters were scared off by the negative ads. The divide and conquer attack game worked.
Cain needs to stick to pizza.
Third party = ballot garbage can.
No gonna matter....we won’t make it 4 years...Once Obama installs all the lifer liberals and infects the system, we will never win again.
When Sarah quit the governorship a couple of friends called and asked me what I thought. My gut told me she is going her own way, going around them and perhaps form another party...
It maybe time, will she be the person that builds anew as the GOP goes the way of the Wigs? Darned if I know, but personally I don't think our energies should be in changing the political but focus on survival...
did 3rd party votes hand victory to Obama? We need more than a third party.
And I hope people do not start spreading the usual nonsense about the GOP being a third party. It never was.
What needs to happen is for conservatives to beat the GOPe internally. They had two bites at the apple in a row. It is our turn now.
A third party effort may be too late to do any good.
No! Let's call it the...
Heck, I’d be satisfied if we could manage to get a second party.
If people like him and Sarah are the faces of it, I am there. If we can siphon off people like Allen West, it could be really dynamic.
And my opinion of Cain continues to plummet. Taking the ball and going home isn’t going to fix anything. Conservatives have to fix the GOP from the inside if they want any chance of stopping liberalism — a third party merely entrenches the libs.
We need to crash this pig into the ground.
The left is actively doing this anyway.
Let’s get out of their way, and alleviate the consequences for ourselves as best we can, and let them experience the consequences of their ideology.
Voted Constitution Party for POTUS this election. First time I have ever voted 3rd party in over 40 years of voting.
I don’t see the GOP fixing things. The day after the election the speaker of the house is talking about “compromise” and TV talking heads are saying we need to be more “inclusive” whatever the heck that means but it does not sound conservative to me...sounds like we want to be more like the Democrats
We’re on the verge of switching our enrollment from R to I just to lessen the GOP number on the record. The GOP needs to retire and be replaced by a new 2nd party.
Stand up Palin.
