I think we need to address the point of whether or not the party is swinging too far to the left to be elected in ANY voting district. For the 10 months before the election that I've been working with the party we were very careful to place ourselves pragmatically no further left than the Greens, and with some libertarian principles as far as adhering to the constitution and strenuously protecting civil liberties. We have been careful to not tread into the fringes to maximize the potential to be electable.
We need to settle on a basic party platform or at least decide where on the spectrum we fall. We will be unable to get anything accomplished even if we have great candidates, if we cannot get them elected because they are too radical. America is ready for a 3rd party. What folks are looking for is what folks think the democrats are, or slightly to the left of that. Bernie Sanders, Dennis Kucinich... Neither of these guys is as far left as the discussions about where this party is heading seem to indicate.
