Will Michael Savage Form Independent Third Party?

Even though it was the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur Michael Savage made a decision which he did not make without some serious internal debate. Rather than spend the entire day atoning for the sins of the past year Savage mulled the idea of a political party separate and distinct from the beltway insiders.

Savage sees this issue as something which he is being guided by divine direction to accomplish. Whether Gods hand is in it or not stands to be revealed by the passing of time.

Savage has long held that we Americans have been abandoned by our elected officials who have seemingly sold out to the corrupt Wall Street elite. Seeing no alternative Dr. Savage has announced the formation of an exploratory group to investigate the plausibility of an entirely new political party based on the concept of Boarders, Language and Culture.

During a recent program Savage stated that there is in fact no official Savage Nation as he had once proposed and created. It seems that such was more an idea and dream of his than anything. It sounds great as an introduction to a nationally broadcast radio show but lacked teeth. It seems that it was only useful for its radio production value.

However this idea of an actual legally established political party might have more validity. Finding pro bono legal people who have the knowledge to create, according to law, such an organization as seen by Savage as a real possibility is now in review. It should be noted though that the idea at this point is simply an idea and nothing more.

My own thought on the matter is that it will not gain enough momentum to have any real effect on national politics. Sure it might be able to make a dent in some local political action especially if enough people become organized in local geographic regions.

But to believe that it can gain enough momentum to effect national politics in perhaps the next four years as Savage suggested is difficult to imagine. Yes, as Savage claims he and other conservative talk show hosts like Limbaugh and Hannity have a vast listenership. But listening to people talk and taking time, your own time to make change in government is a big stretch.

In example, a recent appeal for financial contributions for the defense of Michael Savage in a court case, now dropped, Savage received the financial backing of about 25,000 listeners. That says to me that out of ten million listeners he can expect financial support from about that many people, less in actual logistic, boots on the ground support.

With those numbers it will not reflect in a blip on the political national radar. It could be better described as a pimple on the ass of a fly. As much as I like the idea I doubt that such action will be found in the long term to be sufficient to meet the hopes and dreams of Michael Savage.

It might look good on his tombstone someday but it will likely not have any impact on the corrupt American political landscape. Perhaps it will read something like this.

“Michael Savage the little train which couldn’t.” Or worse yet “Bonzo goes to Washington.” Sorry Mike, it is a great idea but it won’t happen in your lifetime. Enjoy the time you have left on Earth Mike. This world doesn’t deserve your talent, mind or ideals.

Since Savage often invokes scripture let me offer up some biblical perspective as to why the nation and indeed all nations are in freefall.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3: 1-5.
