the U.S. needs a Bloc Québécois

[I can’t believe I just said that]

Third parties don’t seem to be very viable in the U.S.  But what if a party could unite around some local/state cause, and get 2/3rds of the congressional seats in their state?  Enough to make or break legislation, to force concessions, something along those lines.

Of course, it needs to be a big state — maybe Texas, or California (though I fear what their platform might look like).

Just throwing the thought out there — discuss amongst yourselves.  Here’s some background on the Bloc.
