    Yeah...that's what I said in the post you quoted. I conflated the FBI report and the new DNI report. The point stands, though. Supporting 3rd party makes you a hostile actor against our nation.

    The real test will be jobs, will he continue the steady job growth we've seen under Obama, will he increase it?

    I like The President on a short leash.

    Yes they should have contingency plans you know they have them for you and me.

    No change means no Trump so this will be ok but I'd rather a successful Trump.

    Never been part of the Two Party system, and yes have voted for Independents and third Party candidates several times. There is not Party that represents the vast majority of Americans siding some place in the middle, No Party is 100% correct and No Party is 100% wrong on the issues. Try voting for the Best Interests of the Nation and you will find you will support candidates local, state, and Federal that are going to come from a range of Parties, America First.

    BS, the more People that are willing to put Party behind Nation and vote for a third Party are doing their part to keep the Big Two in check. Think about it, if that 48% that did not vote had all voted for Johnson, he would have won in a landslide. Believe me the leaders of the Big Two do recognize that they need to do better at getting voters to support them, to not do so is doing so at their own peril.

    That's nonsense, and that's not what the report said.

    Yes, that's what it said. I quoted it for you.

    Hey...don't tell me. Tell the DNI. That is their assessment.

    Um, no. They said that RT (you know, RUSSIA) is pumping up our third parties in a way that advances the narrative of American democracy as a sham. Not that voting third party makes one a rogue agent.

    Re: No More 2 Party System

    i definitely support making it easier for other parties to participate. of course, i also fantasize about banning political parties entirely. run on your ideas, not on your team / political tribe.
