  •  and I would reply that (6+ / 0-)

    until there is a viable third party alternative (which needs to be built from the ground up) we will never get beyond the winner-take-all dilema that is part of the problem with our government.

    My main point is that blaming third parties HURTS your cause/party and alienates potential Indy voters.

    Indies are indies because we want OPTIONS and ACCOUNTABILITY in govt.

    If a 2 party system was capable of that, over 1/3 of all registered voters would not be  Indies.

    •  Bump to that... (0+ / 0-)

      Independent and third party voters made all the difference in this election.  Take a look at the independent voter exit results.  Whoever took the independent voters won.

    •  sometimes, I've thought... (0+ / 0-)

      that indies are indies cuz they cynically think all politicians are corrupt.  Again, just my opinion.  If that's so, it's not a helpful opinion nor is it helpful to stay outside the parties and not work to make it different, if indeed "all politicians are corrupt".

      I wouldn't believe Bush if his tongue became notarized (h/t to shanti2)
