Country needs a three-party system

I believe there is a solution to our country’s seemingly endless political crisis.

We do away with our current two-party system and the meaningless monikers of Republicans and Democrats and go to a three-party system which realistically describes by their names their true political views — the American (or Rational) Party, the Capitalist Party and the Socialist Party.

The Capitalist Party would replace the current Republican Party and consist of those who believe in no government, no taxes and “everyone for themselves,” the Socialist Party would replace the current Democrat Party and consist of those who believe in “do unto others” (including the irresponsible) and the American (or Rational) Party which would consist of those who desire a fair shake (life, liberty and pursuit of happiness) for all people — the rich, the poor, the old, the privileged and the under privileged, the middle class and the working class — regardless of race, religion or financial motivations.

Our current three branches of government would remain the same, but only members of the American Party could be elected president. I wonder what your other readers think.
