    So once the election results are in, I will know you voted for whoever the winner is, based on throwing away a vote.
    "Picking the lesser of two evils" and "supporting the status quo" is more semantics for the same end result. The individual voter's motivation or rationalization is less important if the end result is the same regardless.

    I agree that it would be better for a third-party to "work its way up", but at the same time if no one votes for third parties then they never get taken seriously, lack ballot access in many places, remain on the fringe, and so on. The "lesser evils" become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I've answered all your questions in full and to satisfactory levels.
    You JUST answered what 'party' you have worked for... only after throwing out some sort of lame attempt at an attack.

    Sorry guy, you went up against someone you shouldn’t. You can’t beat me. As I said, get a little of that intellectual integrity and come back. I don’t care for childish arguments which push no philosophy or debate.
    Yeah, sure that's it. Yet another big ego that things far too much of himself. Around here? Go figure.

    You should really quit kidding yourself.

    And if you think the 'libertarian' party stands a chance, well, I can't help but laugh.

    Then you've been here "long enough" to know my arguments. All self-consistent.

    That was rather self-evident though. But at best, that's the most you got on me. Shall we move the goal posts again then?

    I think the libertarian party is the one which best represents my political platform and philosophy; as such it is the party I endorse. As for the ego thing, I have well proven that point; you may call me Doctor.

    Ah yes, the big ego thinks others actually pay attention. Until this thread, I have never noticed you. But thanks for thinking so much of yourself.

    That was rather self-evident though.
    Yes, because so many peoples 'lean's are off base, that means yours must be solid.

    As for the ego thing, I have well proven that point; you may call me Doctor.
    I have no doubt you constantly believe you 'prove' things. It is a symptom of the your narcississm. And believe me, the last thing I'd ever call you is doctor.

    Both of you egotists should stay away from pins and needles.
    The point is - our nation itself needs reform.
    40% of the people voting !
    About 15-20 years ago, I voted third party....people should do this, the GOP and the Dems are not good at listening.
    Debates end up being propaganda.
    The truth exists not, or so it seems.
    Debates (a joke) - nothing but opinion, and with that , there is no winning and losing.

    So is it your goal to prove a high level degree has nothing to do with one's intelligence, or did that just sort of happen all on it's own?

    No, it was merely demonstration as to why you should call me Doctor.
