There’s a very easy way to add credibility and promote 3rd parties. It also costs nothing to make happen. We must demand that all 3rd party candidates appear in all surveys and questionnaires.
This is a simple first step to gain recognition. Each time we see a poll that doesn’t include 3rd parties or their candidates, then an army of concerned citizens should inform that media outlet to list ALL candidates, not just the top two. To do this, we need a Rapid Response Network to help independent candidates get noticed. This is something that we plan to do as soon as we have the time and resources.
There are countless polls circulated online. Most only mentioned the top 2 parties. The media does not recognize independent candidates because they think that they “don't stand a chance.” This ignorance creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just by having these alternatives listed makes a big difference in how we are respected by the public. This will make independent and 3rd party candidates more visible and encourage more qualified candidates to run for office.
Two excellent examples of this are Amnesty International and Public Breastfeeding. Whenever a major human rights violation occurs anywhere in the world, or a woman is denied the ability to breastfeed in public, an army of volunteers flood mailboxes, phones and social media of the offending party. All of this kicks in with the push of just one button. It really works.
But it’s not like we need to twist arms. Most people want to do the right thing and they are quick to comply. They’re people, just like you and me, who also want change. They just don’t know the importance of this oversight, and that this is literally our only hope for any political change to happen. In the meantime, forward this message to all your friends – especially contacts in the media, bloggers, commentators, celebrities, artists, musicians, Youtubers, and anyone else who is willing to endorse this message.
This is a program that we can quickly execute. A small donation of $5.00 can help make it happen. Please visit our GoFundMe and Patreon.
