Time for a Third Party?

The only time a third party has ever risen to power in the United States was when the Republican Party defeated the Whig Party and the Democratic-Republican Party with the election of Abraham Lincoln.  Why? Because both the Whig Party and Democratic-Republican Party endorsed some form of slavery, and only the Republican Party was against it.  When both political parties endorse the same behaviors, it is time for a third party.
