We Need a BOLD MOVE in Politics. By Geniusofdespair

Let's not waste the momentum of the Women's March.

We need a new political party that can be under the umbrella of the Democrats or an Independent Party on to itself (what I favor except for Duvergers's law).

We at least need a BRAND NEW name that represents Women and young people, like the Tea Party represented ultra conservatives and got wacky Republicans to run under their mantle.

We need a Jazzy new name for the more progressive of us: Techno Party? Living Dead? (I like that one).

I have been researching parties and have been flirting with joining the Pirate Party - just to be different.

I am with Michael Moore,  just so sick of the Democrats. How about it kids? are you tired of the same old two parties? Lets be bold. Lets get the Democrats spiffed up for the next election with a strong new faction. Bernie tried let's continue his work.

It is probably easier to umbrella with the Democrats (ugh) because of Duvergers' law, a third party, even though I want one, is next to impossible.

What is wrong with the name Progressives? It is the antithesis of the Tea Party that wants to take us back to the 1800's, it is forward looking, which we are and it is something the millenials understand and can get behind.

Because it sounds like conservatives. Tea party is better than ultra conservatives. Catchy... I want a catchy name
