All the bigotry and hatred has divided this country into opposing units…..former Repubs and Dems have decided to try and form a third party……
Dozens of former Republican and Democratic officials announced on Wednesday a new national political third party to appeal to millions of voters they say are dismayed with what they see as America’s dysfunctional two-party system.
The new party, called Forward and whose creation was first reported by Reuters, will initially be co-chaired by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey. They hope the party will become a viable alternative to the Republican and Democratic parties that dominate U.S. politics, founding members told Reuters.
The new party is being formed by a merger of three political groups that have emerged in recent years as a reaction to America’s increasingly polarized and gridlocked political system. The leaders cited a Gallup poll last year showing a record two-thirds of Americans believe a third party is needed.
The merger involves the Renew America Movement, formed in 2021 by dozens of former officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Donald Trump; the Forward Party, founded by Yang, who left the Democratic Party in 2021 and became an independent; and the Serve America Movement, a group of Democrats, Republicans and independents whose executive director is former Republican congressman David Jolly.
My thoughts…Yang is a techie and is a business man….this new party will be a big business party….we already have two of those we do not need another.
I will give them the benefit of the doubt and wait for an official platform before I go full monty on them.
This is NOTHING new……anyone remember Unity08 or AmericansElect2012….both we a team up of GOPers and Dems….they were con jobs….read what I wrote back then….
Yes, We Have No Third Party Today
Please tell me the Yang is not doing this just to keep his hat in the ring…..I mean he lost the NYC race….
I believe we definitely need a good third party apart from the crap of the corrupt two we have now….but right now I do not think this is it…..we need a true Progressive party…..a Bull Moose Party…..(i wrote about this in 2010…will you listen now?)

I’ll keep an eye and ear out.
Me as well…I am not optimistic…..but it is definitely needed…..chuq
A tech businessman and a lot of Republicans? Doesn’t sound like much of a change to me, chuq.
Best wishes, Pete.
Pete it is not change….just disgruntle toads that want their chance at power. Never about the nation and its people. chuq
There is no way that a third party made up of a mix of democrats and Trumpers will ever be able to agree on anything and will be a party of endless propaganda and infighting but will do nothing for the country except to make the divisions that we are now experiencing seem preferable. This thing is dead on arrival.
Just like the other two attempts. Rep. Jolly is no Trumper but he is a big business tad….so nothing will change. chuq

Don’t know if it’s a good idea at this moment in time … and I don’t like/trust Yang!! … “The new party, called Forward and whose creation was first reported by Reuters, will initially be co-chaired by former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey.”
Thanx my friend and have a great weekend…..chuq
