As you said it, its only 6-8% of the population and when you figure in how much most people know about the libertarian candidate its a waste of time to even consider doing. Though, I still do it if I'm feeling like blowing the night away voting for hope that certain night, but usually I don't.
    IMO there really isn't that much difference between the two major parties. Both are owned by the special interests, lobbyist, big money donors, super pacs, corporations, wall streets firms etc and on and on. This is where they get their millions and billions to run for office. The two major parties owe these people who provide them with tons of cash and you can bet the interests of the monied people will be taken care of way before that of America.

    But if the Libertarian Party is to become a viable third party, to counter act all this influence the two major parties cater to, its members will have to start voting for their candidates. The deck is stacked against any third party, I know, I worked for Perot in 92 and 96, it is the Republicans and Democrats that write the election laws and they do so as a mutual protection act. Then there is the money problem, corporations, wall street, folks with tons of cash do not want to start dividing up their bundles among three parties instead of the established two major parties. But independents are a growing group of voters while those who associate/identify themselves with the two major parties have been shrinking. The is a want out there. Back in Perot's day, only 39% of the electorate said they would vote for or support a third party candidate. Today that has risen to 82%, but the candidate would have to be the right one to garner that support.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    MSNBC and the rest of their crowd need to STFU about telling repubs what they must do to get better.
    The next thing you know, they're starting to do it, not that I'm critical of you.
    Matthews was non-stop focus on RepubLies today and their many wings. Let them continue to eat their own.
    Dems need to clean up their own messes before 2014, or they'll lose the Senate.

    No, its because that is all you have. You can't challenge me on the merits of my argument so you have to lean on the force of the government. Its called a weakness and you suffer from it. It's also called a really piss poor excuse of an argument, but you already knew that.

    So would Jerry Sandusky, and the governor who delayed his arrest, Corbett.

    I'd vote for Jeffrey Dahmer over Obama.

    Oh, there are plenty of merits that can be brought up for the Act. You just refuse to accept any of them. You just can't argue with someone who refuses to play by the rules of the game. The only recourse in that is brute force to ensure that you do.

    You can't even help yourself, can you? That is again no argument. How many pages are you going to do this worthless trash?

    I'll probably stop for a while so I can read. Even someone so out of touch with reality loses some allure for a while.
