Harold Johnson: Expand the choices

November 17, 2012 

Expand the choices

The Democrats and Republicans need a viable third party in the political mix to provide some much-needed competition. It’s time to get away from either/or with no other competing choice.

I’m sure in the recent national election there were thousands of people who did not vote because they did not necessarily agree with the Republican/Democratic message or proposals. There was no other party to turn to so they did not vote. I think there is a change coming that is inevitable and we need to bring it to the forefront of political discussions. People in this country are changing and want more political choices when given the opportunity to vote.
