Future of the Prohibition party?

Interesting interview. I wonder if the Prohibition party will ever merge with some similar socially conservative political party. Seems hard to run an entire political party around one issue.--Ashershow1talk 02:21, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Consider the success of the Greek Hunters' Party (well, it's not THAT much of a success; but still, it's quite successful for a one-issue-party). Regarding merging, I think that if Mr. Hedges keeps to his intelligent strategy explained in the second question his party will grow enough to not need to merge, although it is a possibility.
Let him challenge the dual party system and garner some of the votes from the Tea Partiers!
Agreed. The best case scenario for this party would not include as much as a congressman within the next 25 years, their main issue is to controversial for that. However, the more attention being paid to the party - despite the reason - will increase public attention to the fact that the two-party system is mostly coincidental, and not legally mandated. The more people become aware of this, the more people will educate themselves as to how they can potentially "spend" their vote making a larger change than just making sure "the wrong guy" doesn't get elected president.
