An alternative proposal for an American third party:

The Agro-Industrial People's Party*

We believe--

1. anyone working in American agriculture full-time for 6 months should be given US citizenship.

2. all corporations that do not make food or durable goods should be taxed at 20% of profits.

3. the US Senate should be abolished, and its advise-and-consent powers transferred to a committee of the House of Representatives. (The Onion suggested it first.)

*I would call it the Socialist Party, but that might cause Rupert Murdoch, praise be upon him to reach for his smelling salts.
