Would a progressive third Party help the Democrats more than the Republicans? [View all]

Because with the support of the third Party coalition, neither Party could get a majority to pass anything. Also, it would tend to pull the Democratic Party more to the left. Would that be such a bad thing?

Before we hit the alert button, maybe we should think of the advantages of third Parties? Not only the aforementioned but also, they could be more representative of the voices of the people.

Unless, of course, you think the two-Party system is doing just fine and our Democrats are looking out for our best interests? Personally, I am not so sure about that?

If you think this is unacceptable to discuss, then go ahead an alert it.
