  •  I have voted 3rd party (none)
    and was a Green. Its like rooting for the losing team perpetually.

      as maybe I should be.  I ended up voting Kerry, in DC - where he had a massive win.  

      I reasoned, just before I cast my ballot, that if Kerry did win, then I wanted him to win the popular vote by as much as possible - for a man-date.  

      For shame, for shame on me.  After Kerry sabotaged (and then denied it) the best Dem candidate running - Howard Dean - I still voted for Kerry.

      Dean, in my book, is still too much of a warmonger, but he's quite possibly not a total coward, and he was a sure Dem win waiting to happen - still is.  And I voted for the guy who sabotaged him.  Truly unbelievable. Unconscionable.  Blah.

      But you had some serious guts to go Green.  More than I and most of the other people on this site who actually agree with the Green Party more than the Dem Party, but have decided that running with the crowd is, though more cowardly, also less likely to prompt criticism from the fascists.
