This question is addressed in detail in the first section of my book We Can Do Better, America.
Let me be clear: forming a new political party is not going to be quick or easy. That’s why I remained an active Republican for many years despite the party being so off-course. I also address the popular argument no new party should be started until the legislative bodies dominated by the two major parties pass laws that make it easier for a new party to win and compete. A new political party isn’t the best way to affect political change. It’s the only way.
Issues The Book Tackles:
● The Republican Party failed to live up to their principles BEFORE Trump.
● How Trump made things worse.
● How the GOP has changed.
● Challenges to starting a new major political party.
● Why a Primary Challenge to Trump is pointless.
● Why Democrats are not an acceptable alternative.
● A new political party vs. running Independent Candidates.
