Third party can be good for politics -- Wally Meyer

Third party can be good for politics -- Wally Meyer


President Donald Trump’s actions since the Nov. 3 election have opened the door to create a third party.

Our current political system is at a stalemate. Republicans do whatever they can to thwart Democrats. While Democrats do whatever they can to obstruct Republicans.

It reminds me of the picture of a hay cart. One group pushing on one side, the other pushing on the other, and the cart never moves.

I predict the Republicans will divide into two parties, the old guard Republicans and the Trumpers. I view the creation of a third party as good for politics. Our country has had three parties before, so why not?

Wally Meyer, Madison
