"The 3rd party debate
on this list"
I've been surprised to hear people say they are voting 3rd party
because Obama vs Romney is lesser of two evils. But most
people don't realize that the only reason they don't know
anything negative about a lot of the 3rd party candidates is
because the press ignores them.
I've heard some people on here say they are voting Constitution
Party because Romney isn't conservative enough for them.
But they nominated a FORMER DEMOCRAT!!! Virgil Goode was
first elected to Congress as a Democrat, switched parties to
GOP, then to Constitution party. And if you think there's
nothing negative about him, google up "MZM Scandle" and you will
find different. The Libertarian Party nominated someone
pro-choice, pro-marijuana, but many conservatives will vote for
him just because they have a beef with romney and HAVEN'T HEARD
much about who they are voting for despite the fact they
disagree with many of his stands.
We hear lots of negative stuff about the major party candidates
because they come under heavy scrutiny. Third party
candidates don't. So their down side doesn't make the
press and they get to define themselves, unlike the major party
And I don't think ANY of the 3rd party candidates are on the
ballot in enough states to win except Gary Johnson. (He's
on the ballot in 47 states.) Even if you could get 100% of
all voters to agree that we should cast a 3rd party vote to
voice a protest against both major parties, it is mathematically
impossible for ANY of them to win , not just because of a lack
of confidence among possible voters, but because NONE of them
are on the ballot in more than about 12 states.
You'll find stuff you disagree with in almost everyone.
It's a matter of picking who you like best. To label
someone as "evil" because there's an issue or two you disagree
with or because of his religion is to focus WAY to heavily on
the critical negative side of things. Vote for who you
like the best.
