I visited with Scott Shackford of Reason Magazine a few days ago. We talked a lot about the future and how we can make an impact outside of the two-party system. I said,
“I realized that the real change can happen with the majority of people that don’t find themselves represented in the two-party system,” he said. “This new majority can affect change and make the country better without having to work within the system. Political parties started for a reason. But do you need a political party when you’ve got Facebook? We’re at a point in our history. There’s nothing to say that the majority can’t make our country better without playing on the same field as them. Establishment parties can keep others out. I think we can come together and go around them.”
