A lot of the hot button issues (guns, abortion, gay rights, military spending) lean Republican or conservative as it is. Is your plan to split their vote? It might be a better use of your time to try to educate and enlighten voters. Get them over their fears and prejudices.

There's something wrong with the link, it doesn't lead anywhere.

It's a nice idea in theory, unfortunately it assumes an informed educated electorate. If we had that we wouldn't be in the trouble we're in now in the first place.

Rocky says: That was the end of the Democratic Party for Anderson, who subsequently declared, "The Constitution has been eviscerated while Democrats have stood by with nary a whimper. It is a gutless, unprincipled party, bought and paid for by the same interests that buy and pay for the Republican Party."

What any real party needs first of all and more than anything else including money is living breathing human beings. The Federal Election Commission disagrees as according to their rules political parties are not only not membership organizations, they are prohibited from being membership organizations. So, in a classical sense, the Republican and Democratic Parties are not really parties at all.
