Go ahead and laugh but this is the reason why I am seriously considering voting for a third party candidate next election. It has become crystal clear that both the pubs and dims have morphed into just two different forms of socialist parties.
The only real thing that would keep me from doing this is that the third party that I like is completely wrong when it comes to national security and the WOT. If they would change their tune on that I would vote for them in a second.
Any ideas on how to get a third party in a position where they have a chance of getting into a place of leadership. I think it will take years of working from local up to national. A friend of mine said we should only work within the two party system, since a third party will never have any impact. To me, it's like saying we need to work on our government school system from the inside, instead of considering alternate educational means. I know it doesn't sound the same, but I hope you know what I mean.
