Well, you should have given the option for multiple choices.
Since I made the forever shameful vote for Obama in 08 I've voted exclusively 3rd Party ever since going between the Libertarians and Greens...
It depends on the candidate which I would choose
If Gary Johnson ran as a Libertarian again, I'd have to say Libertarian Party...
Yeah, I did say that.That's because Tea Partiers and gun nuts are slapping the label on without understanding the philosophy. Most of these people are in the Republican Party and are enthusiastically supporting Rand Paul, who is one of the biggest political chameleons to date.You've already said that you think most people who claim to be libertarians are not
No, that the label is overused by people who don't understand the philosophy.That the people who think like you are vastly underrepresented in the Libertarian Party?

I would love to see a truly progressive party emerge in the United States -- a socialist-democratic party, that would join the Socialist International and connect to the wider progressive/socialist infrastructure out there.
Obviously, Americans won't be able to stomach the actual word 'socialist' for another decade or so, so it could be called something else, like the Progressive Party or the Left Party or something.
But it's sorely needed to countre-balance this rightward shift in American politics: America truly might be in danger of becoming a politically reactionary state, and that has never, ever ended well in ages past.
"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
If the Green Party were to begin to approach mainstream status the Dems would shift their focus and absorb them in. Simply as a matter of its own survival. Many, if not most, Greens would accept this as it would quicken adoption of their desired beliefs.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
Yes, they're an extension of the GOP but a very discontent critical of everybody extension often GOP. The only people they are practically willing to be worthy of being called Americans are fellow tea party followers and right-wing media pundits.
