    You live in a country run by two political parties which gives you a couple choices, you can waste your vote on a third party or you can vote for the lessor of two "evils" and then work from a position of power. I chose the latter.


    the sad thing is that with that sort of attitude there never will be a viable third party and you are on record as accepting an 'evil'.

    and what has been done with power? money isn't the only thing that corrupts....

    I doubt you are in any position to make a difference, unless you are Tom Delay's sock puppet...

    A viable third party begins at the grass roots level and builds to the national level, not start at the national level and build downward. In order to govern one needs political support at the national or state level. Name for me a successful third party candidate at either the state or national level. When in office they run up against the establishment and that leads to failure.

    It is easier getting audience identifying myself as a Republican than it is as a third party advocate. My Representative is a staunch conservative and I know that person on a first name basis. I have met with him often. All supporting a third party candidate does is give you the opportunity to whine and complain about the end result. I don't see where that serves any purpose.
