Third party = Obama 2nd term.
Romney has to be beaten in the primaries, or Obama will beat everyone in the general.
I don't know how many failures it will take to convince the US electorate that third parties simply cannot work.
And no, before anyone chimes in, the GOP was never a third party. That's an oft-repeated canard.
If Willard is shoved down our throats, I’m voting 3rd party or write-in, as a staunch social conservative to make the point that we will never ever ever settle for Bush Sr, Dole, McCain, or Romney mushy moderates again!
And I bet millions upon millions of other so-cons do the same. And millions of others will simply sit out the election all together and wait for Rubio (versus Hillary) in 2016.
