Americans - Vote For Any Third Party

.

When was the last time
your party paid attention to your views?

It was probably when there was a strong third party candidate.

A Ross Perot or a Ralph Nader gets real debate going, and activates the single democratrepublican party to accomplish something. It even moves the extremes of that single party a bit further apart.

There can be an argument made that in some states, Florida and Ohio in the last election, there is some logic in voting for the lessor of two evils that are your primary choices.

In all other cases, for instance New York or Texas, the results are known before the election.

"The old parties are husks, with no real soul within either, divided on artificial lines, boss-ridden and privilege-controlled, each a jumble of incongruous elements, and neither daring to speak out wisely and fearlessly on what should be said on the vital issues of the day." -- Theodore Roosevelt

As I've said elsewhere the American two party system is "like professional wrestling, but throwing sound bites instead of chairs. Both parties scream, moan, groan, and shout to keep ignorant party faithful convinced they are fighting a righteous battle."

Vote for someone that represents you, not for someone that is already sold out to the existing system of abuse.

"Look at the tyranny of party--at what is called party allegiance, party loyalty--a snare invented by designing men for selfish purposes--and which turns voters into chattles, slaves, rabbits" - Mark Twain

Not voting is not a protest, it is submission to those that will rule over you to their own ends.

Vote, but don't vote for the big two.

"Not voting is just as bad as voting for evil men because it allows evil to succeed by default. Take a stand with people who support what you really support. Stop cowering and merely complaining about America's pending demise and act in such a way as to truly make a difference." -- Tom Ambrose

Vote for any third party.
