    3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    Ok! So we hear all the time bitching about the two choices we have; Obama, and Romney. People often say they will vote for a 3rd party or a smaller party candidate if they had a chance. Well they do! But only in our little DP world election.
    Who would you choose?

    There can't really be a third party choice. The Republican and Democratic parties may not agree on much but they did agree on passing laws and using lawsuits to make it virtually impossible for viable alternative parties to emerge and threaten their power.

    In my dream world, I would pick a Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush ticket.

    In DP world I would be in prison for aggravated battery of half the members on this forum.

    My vote would go to Gary Johnson. Dunno why, but I like him.

    gary johnson would be my vote,maybe im just too constitutionalist for peoples standards,but the constitution had yet to fail anyone,just politicians who run around it to achieve a goal rather than amending it the way its supposed to be done.

    Research it a bit. You might be surprised how rigged our political system actually is.

    Re: 3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    I'll probably vote for Johnson. For some reason I have always liked him enough to pay attention to his career. I really don't know much about the Libertarian party. The very few declared Libertarians I've actually met in persoon seemed sweet and as crazy as loons. Their literature has like Uncle Sam cartoons, not trying hard for the intellectual vote I suppose. But, so what? I'm just bummed about the 2 choices and for once in my life I'm going to try and say so officially, with my vote.

    Re: 3rd Party Candidate Choice?

    None of the above. If I was going to break from the big two and throw my vote away on a 3rd party candidate, it would have to be a candidate and a party which I fundamentally agreed with on a majority of issues. No such 3rd party exists. Therefore, I would not vote for one.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
