Donations To Third Parties Skyrocketing

Do you think people believe that they only have two choices in regards to governance? Break free from the ketchup-vs.-mustard political paradigm, and reach for the tangy BBQ sauce of third parties. Via Parapolitical:

The current issue of Ballot Access News reports a nearly 300-percent increase in individual giving to third parties in the United States during Q1/Q2 2011 versus the same time period in 2010. The data is based on state income tax returns from the thirteen states that let taxpayers designate a donation to their favorite political party. By comparison, the Democrat Party registered only a 2.4-percent bump in giving, while the Republican Party saw a 2.6-percent decline.

    i still wonder what the raw numbers are 300% of the original 3rd party amount could actually be less than 2.6% of the current republican amount (which is okay because everything is in the right direction)

    It depends if this country is still one of innovation and imagination. For my money. which is not much, I see trends that say we are in jeopardy of becoming more isolationist and superstitious. Ask around if you live in the US how many folks believe in ” End Time Prophecy”
