    Re: 3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    I am a registered Green, so I'm sympathetic to the Green platform. I'm anti-Republican because they represent the Corporatocracy and I abhor that. I'm disgusted with Obama because of Libya and Syria, not prosecuting the torturers and liars, and bailing out the bankers instead of jailing the bankers. I don't think Jill Stein could accomplish anything because of Repub/Dem gridlock, but the message would be clear.

    Who would you choose?
    I'm supporting Gary Johnson, good candidate, good platform, not a shill for the status quo.

    most of the quizzes I've taken line me up with her. one question, though : is she for cap and trade / energy taxes? I find this method of solving our energy crisis to be a poor one at this point, and I would have a hard time voting for it. it's simply too regressive, and there are better ways to solve the problem.

    Re: 3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    Out of the choices listed I am leaning towards Virgil Goode assuming his is not a etch a sketch.I do like his stand on many issues. According to isidewith.com it lists him as 77%, while Ron Paul is 82% and Romney is 83%. So if my state does not screw third party candidates this year then I will vote for Virgil Goode.If my state does screw third party candidates then I will simply leave that part of the ballot blank.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: 3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    I think my views are fairly compatible with Jill Stein's, but her priorities seem off to me, which seems normal from a Green candidate. I have no interest or compatibility with the other candidates, so third party is not an option for me.

    Whichever candidate is closest to anarchy. I guess I'd be voting for anarchy! Oh the irony!

    There are a fair number of posters here that will vote for Gary Johnson. I will be one of them. Im glad he decided to affiliate. He is a better candidate than Wayne Root, who would likely have been the nominee.

    Since the Presidential election has no runoff, third parties should try to get only Senators and Representatives elected and have them propose a change in the Constitution to have Presidential runoffs or that automatic runoff where people would vote for both first and second choices. No more "A vote for Perot is a vote for Clinton" nonsense.

    Third parties exist because reps and dems have so completely abandoned the country in the name of party. I have no illusions about a third party candidate winning the presidency. However...IF a significant number of people...20% of those that actually voted...were to vote for ANY candidate other than the two main parties it would serve to wake BOTH parties up a little bit. That will not happen. The majority of people that claim to be otheriwse oriented will go in ditufully and mark their ballot straight ticket for either GOP or Democrat. The '99% will vote democrat. 'Tea Party' voters will vote republican. Nothing will change.
