    “The political spirit of the Empire State
    may invigorate or enfeeble,
    purify or contaminate,
    the temper of the nation.”

    ~The American Review
    1846

    “Well, gentlemen, we have a race of agitators all over the country, some
    connected with the press ; some, I am sorry to say, connected with the
    learned professions. They agitate ; their livelihood consists in agitating ;
    their freehold, their copyhold, their capital, their all in all, depend on
    the excitement of the public mind.”

    Daniel Webster
    Buffalo, NY
    May, 1851

    For the first time, in numerous election cycles, many registered voters in New York State will have an impact on their Party’s nominee for President.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have THAT kind of voice in ALL elections?

    A third-party is not the antithesis of the American political process. It does not mean tossing aside all other ideas and ideals to become a renegade. It isn’t the third-side of an unequal (scalene) triangle. Rather, it should be considered the moveable, rational fulcrum between two imbalanced heavy-weights, and, as such, bring the “extremes” to a balance in our Government.

    Consider what each major Party’s “outsider” candidates have brought to this nomination cycle process. Opinions on topics and issues have been pronounced, which have resulted in a deviation from typical campaign rhetoric, bringing voter participation to new high levels, causing candidates to re-think their approach, and opening up a dialog on topics that are not just “buttons” to push in order to sway voters.

    Wouldn’t it be grand if this type of forthright campaigning could be seen ALL the time?

    Wouldn’t it be better that your ballot choice was something more than the “lesser of two evils”?

    Wouldn’t you like to be a member of a Party that would have that ability for ALL elections?
