Bull Moose Party 2012?? Why the hell not...

The primary aim of the 1912 Progressive Party, also called the Bull Moose Party was to "to destroy this invisible Government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day."
 
A third party candidate, while not winning the election, put the following issues on the national agenda that changed the course of goverment for a generation...the US might use a bit of that kind of thinking right now.
 
So, I'd like to hear from anyone out there on this and if you agree -- let's find a few zillionaires and get them to put up the funds for the campaign of someone we do not want elected.  Hell, I'll do it if we can't find anyone else willing to run and lose.  The goal is not to try to win, but to change the rules of the game by getting what really matters back into the discussion.  One definiton of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
