    Re: 3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    This is a link to Jill Stein's State of the Union. It is interesting, logical, enlightening, and everything Repubs and Dems are not going to talk about during their campaigns.

    "But the truth is both sides – despite the rhetoric – are responsible for the harsh policies driving our economy and our democracy into deep crisis. Simply put, they place the interests of Wall Street ahead of the needs of everyday people and the long term welfare of our nation."

    GJ without a doubt. I'd love to substitute Ron Paul in there but he stayed with the Republicans (who are a real disgrace to Jefferson's party).

    I'm not saying you're wrong - I've just never heard of such a thing. I always thought that in america, there were checks, balances, and laws that prevented the imposing of any kind of restrictions. Why should you have to be a member of any "party" at all to run for president? Remember when we used to say "hey, this is america!". I'm not sure if that's such a good thing anymore.

    Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party. Personally, I'd prefer that they'd nominated the same candidate that they did four years ago, but he's still a better option than anyone else out there so far as I'm concerned.

'Tea Party' voters will vote republican. Nothing will change.
    This is why third parties are unfit to govern anyway. If they can't see the necessity of changing the Constitution to allow a Presidential runoff, they are not very practical and would waste our time on side issues. Why didn't Perot run against Bush for governor of Texas first, establishing his credibility? Why didn't Buchanan and Nader run for senator first? It seems like an ego trip if these candidates refuse to try to win the local elections before going national.

    George Wallace should have associated racial issues with class warfare on the majority and come up with other White working class issues. My racist aunt wouldn't vote for him, saying, "What he wants to do to them he also wants to do to us." So he came on as being only against the Democrats. Another thing he proved, just like the Greens, is that one-issue candidates are unfit to govern.
