We need a Moderate political party. We exist. There actually exists in real life, people who are somewhere in the middle. We aren't as Liberal as Clinton. We aren't as Conservative as Cruz. Can we get a party going and bring some sanity to this system built on extremism? Nope.

"Moderate"
-In politics and religion, a moderate is an individual who is not extreme, partisan, nor radical. In recent years, the term political moderates has gained traction as a buzzword.

"The existence of the ideal moderate is disputed because of a lack of a moderate political ideology.

Aristotle favoured conciliatory politics dominated by the centre rather than the extremes of great wealth and poverty or the special interests of oligarchs and tyrants."
"What Donald Trump is doing is representing the absolute heartbreak, and anger, and frustration at a government gone mad."

This would be completely pointless. American third parties have no chance in elections. You might as well side with the Centrist Democrats.

My point is made. The end.

Agreed. No one can ever become a candidate outside of the 2 party system. They have the party infrastructure, pacs, and support of super pacs, as well as lobbiest to prop them up all the way. I'd personally like to see the elimination of the 2 party system altogether but, that's a wish akin to rubbing a lamp and expecting a genie to come out.
