  •  Third parties...historically (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I've been occupying my little piece of Mother Earth for quite some time now and from what I've seen/learned, third party efforts, for the most part, have historically been efforts made because some one person or some small, insignificant group is pissed off that their beliefs, candidate and/or agenda isn't picked up by one of the two major parties.

    In many cases, this third party element has actually decided elections by taking away just enough votes and effort for one party or the other to succeed of the other.  

    Like it or not, it's not the "American way".

    - If you don't like gay marriage, blame straight people. They're the ones who keep having gay babies.
