With an independent party on the national polls, the other two parties that are frustated on the recent clash on gov't spending are likley to search for the integrety of the canidate's position to view alternate routes.

It really isn't too difficult to do.
Step one: Reject the formula of liberal vs. conservative. There are many other dimensions of politics to consider. libertarian vs. authoritarian. Keynesian economics vs. Supply side economics. What is the important thing in this world?
Step two: Come up with guiding principles for your party agenda. It should not be about wedge issues. It should be about vision. Let the members of your party help to engineer that vision.
Step three: Come up with a strategy and funding to implement your platform.
Right now, about 90 percent of those who want a third party just want to "get" someone. They never manage to make anything happen.
