Eh, i've had this nation for a couple years by now, so...nah, I wouldn't say so.

So currently the only third party candidate for governor in Colorado, Bill Hammons (Unity Party), wants to:
1. Secede to escape Trump along with New Mexico and California (apparently he took this one of the website two days ago after a news interview)
2. Declare war on Mexico to get Colorado a "path to the sea"
3. Or: have the federal government leave the "swamp" of Washington, give DC statehood, and have the new capital east of Denver.
4. Replace current state taxes with carbon tax
5. Create a universal insurance program for all Coloradoans (he sells insurance)

Those who support easier third party candidacies be warned: our state has about the easiest ballots to get on (hence over a dozen people for President last go around) and this is what we have to show for it.

Wow....I can tell I do not like that guy. Does the secession thing have a lot of support?

Third party candidacies only make sense in the context of a more proportional system. Otherwise, they really do just act as spoilers on the major parties. What a third party *should* aim for is building ground support for the kind of insurgency it takes to replace one of the two current parties. That's what the Republicans did to the Whigs. But all the major third parties in this country want to do is run nutters for President and Governor, instead of trying to win doable local races with competent candidates. That's the only reason I'm still a Republican, that and the ability to influence primaries in CA, which has become way less meaningful since they implemented the crappy blanket primary system.

No it doesn't, I've only ever heard him say it and he has since rescinded it from his platform.

I would generally agree, unless third parties are able to build some serious ground support they would be much better off focusing on local politics (like the Minnesota Independence party), but even that is difficult to retain after more than a few election cycles.

I mean, I can tell I don't like the "Unity Party" that GOR mentioned, but even though I haven't done any research on it, I can tell I still probably like it much better than the Democratic party...I mean, at least this "Unity Party" appears to have a set of views. It seems like the Democratic party nowadays is just the cool guy party. I honestly can't find a set of views except for supporting gay rights and other obviously liberal views (Don't get me wrong, none of my business if you're gay, but I still care about other things). I remember seeing Hillary Clinton's "stronger together" commercials on TV and getting so annoyed..... She will say anything to make herself look responsible. The only argument that any liberal I talk to has seems to be calling non-liberals terrible people, or attacking the source, or something like that--I don't even think they have real opinions.

I tend not to care if they're spoilers for major candidates anyway, however, because I hate most major party candidates, haha.

Well, if the liberals can declare secession, I guess I can if they break the 2nd amendment, hee hee.

What do you guys think on the constitutionality of secession?

Major parties are necessarily amalgamations of highly divergent demographics, ideas, and policies, this is how they appeal to broad swaths of people and, more importantly, to different geographical scales (local, county, state, national). As such it is hard to pin these parties down aside from broad generalizations. The closest you get is the party platform, but states have their own variations of these and candidates may have views that directly contradict them. It is also important to remember that, especially in past but still likely the majority today, people join the Republicans or the Democrats because of heritage not because of political positions per se. Especially among rural Republicans membership is driven more by culture than by politics which derive from that culture (this is less true, I think, of urban Democrats who have less an idea of culture, but like it or not they still do have one: yuppies are usually Democrats, but again this is less about policy than a heritage).
