Not in my lifetime. I'm sure they will somewhen, just not anytime soon. It takes more that an honest sounding, occasionally funny leader to win.

I think they will one day. Soon enough we'll get tired of the BSing of the other two parties.

*bangs head against the wall* dinosore.... ugh what can I say... nvm. I wont, the idiocy is too great.

What does that mean? I don't speak idiot.

Of course! Everything happens in a cycle....it will lead to it eventually...
17 yrs ago - Monday 5/16/05 - 2:02:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think they will, but like Dinosore said, it will be a VERY long time.

Each yesr they will increase their following, but it will be so long before they overtake either of the other two main parties.

I remember when I would have bet anything that a conservative would never win. I thought the US was a progressive country. If the war goes on or welfare "reform" starts really hurting people, or we have a real recession that hits the middle class, the nation will swing back to caring about people again.

The person who asked the question lives in England.

I'm not sure what the diffrent parties are in England, but from the answers, I get the impression that their liberal democrats are not the same as the US's democrats. For one thing, Liberal Demecrats don't seem to be a major party.

The Lib Dem's are a major party, but the majority of power is still shared between Labour and the Conservatives.

Sadly...not anytime soon.

Maybe if they play their cards right.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 12:58:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not...but who knows? Maybe..

Politics is like a pendulum. Something will happen in a while that will cause everyone to swing to the left again. It doesn't necessarily have to take a long time; Johnson and the liberal era became modern Republicanism through Reagan in around 20 years.

Apparently you do, by the look of this post...

what do you mean ever? the old Liberal party which the modern Lib Dems grew out of held power reguarly. The last time being in the 1920's.

However I can't see them gaining power in my life time, i'd loved to be prooved wrong though as i vote for them.
I can see them replacing the Conservatives as the main oppo however.

I can see it happening...in the future. Each election for a few years they've gained seats so hopefully its only a matter of time.

not while people remain so bigoted paranoid and ignorant
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/10/05 - 1:00:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not while the two major parties keep trying to out-center each other.

Judging by the polls, the Democrats will win the next presidential election in a landslide, whoever they put up.

16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/10/05 - 1:02:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/10/05 - 1:07:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hope so; eight years of far-right leadership is more than enough for me.

Not as long as they stay liberal. Libs and conservs win the Primaries, Moderates win Generals. There will always be a few in both, but it is bad politics for they to be anything but a Moderate in this day and age.

Oh of course, because Conservative Repubs are ALWAYS talking about the "Vast LEFT-wing conspericy" right?

Pavof, do you any idea how "bigoted paranoid and ignorant" that post sounded? People like you are the reason Bush won the last Election. STOP MAKING LIBERALS LOOK BAD!!!
