Bernie Quigley comments on what he thinks would be a formidable and workable third party over at The Pundit’s Blog at The Hill.
Ron Paul has brought a sea change in American politics. Without Paul there is no Tea Party of substance. It is merely a populist howl without vision or direction and we have heard it all before. But Paul brought substance: states’ rights, constitutional government and sound money. Ideas which hadn’t been broached in either party this past century. These ideas have been amplified by Texas Gov. Rick Perry in his important book, Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington, and on Judge Andrew Napolitano’s pioneering show on constitutional law, “Freedom Watch.” The Judge is, as he calls himself on occasion, the “night watchman” — an angel devoutly guarding our freedom as we sleep. That his show actually ran on prime time every night of the week for the past couple of years is tribute to the changes occurring in America. But for the moment, those times have stalled.
The article ends up suggesting a third party called The Federalist Party should be formed by Judge Napolitano, Governor Rick Perry, and Governor Sarah Palin.
