Conservatives are clearly on the outside and need to understand that if they take bold positions, such as Senator Cruz, they will be demonized by the RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only), the Democrats and the media.

It is time for conservatives to file their divorce papers from the Republican Party. This political marriage has irreconcilable differences.

This position will have plenty of support among Americans. A new Gallup poll shows that 60% of Americans favor the creation of a new major third party. This is the strongest sentiment for a third party that Gallup has registered in the 10 year history of the poll question.

These Americans are rightfully hungry for a viable alternative. It is time that Americans were given a choice. Today in America, the liberals dominate the Democratic Party, the moderates dominate the Republican Party hierarchy, so conservatives and libertarians should join forces to create their own party.

It is the perfect time for a third party. Gallup found that only 26% of respondents believe that the two political parties adequately represent the American people.

Many of the political class on Capitol Hill are long time incumbents who have been enjoying access to donors and special interest groups for many years and have long forgotten how to serve their constituents.

The political process is so skewed in favor of incumbents that challengers have an impossible time running an effective insurgent campaign. Congressional term limits should be a key feature of the platform of the new Conservative/Libertarian party.

Americans hate Congress so much today that 60% are in favor of replacing every one of the 535 members, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll. In this tumultuous environment, it is the perfect time for a strong, viable third party to be created.

Conservatives consider this your wake-up call, time is a wasting, the ill-fated marriage to the Republican Party has failed and there is no point in continuing the political charade. Sometimes, sadly, in politics, as in life, divorce is the best option.
