In the December 2016 National Committee Meeting, I spoke about how politics was a rigged game (Gary Welch NCM December 2016). The Duopoly of Republicans and Democrats have assured that no third party will ever be successful if they try to play the game set by the rules that the Duopoly has established.
What is their game? Their game is that a political party bases everything on a Candidate Centric/Ballot Access system. It requires that a political party gains membership, donations, and political power by focusing on having candidates that run for political offices. To be able to have the candidates, you must first “pay to play” by having ballot access.
This system does not only negatively affect the Constitution Party. It impacts all the 3rd parties. None of them have been successful in creating any meaningful change in government. Oh, there have been those rare exceptions where a 3rd Party candidate has been successful, but the sad truth is the 99.9% of them fail. I would also propose that the wins that 3rd parties have had were despite the system, not because of it. I am surprised that all the 3rd parties actually go along with this scam. Exactly what kind of data do you need to convince you that this is a rigged game that is impossible for you to win? Even if we were successful in being able to gain ballot access, they would only change the rules again.
At that December 2016 meeting, I stated that we needed to change the game. We needed to force the Duopoly to play OUR game, by OUR rules. In that presentation, I provided the information about the assets that are available to us and provided this party with a message (The 3 Pillars) that could help.
Now I am proposing that we change the way that we are delivering the message. With that, I have a very controversial and bold recommendation:
