From the tagline in your signature, you're clearly drinking Team Red's Kool-Aid. George had it right, factions are the problem.
Please show me one election in which the third party candidate won. The only time it happens is when one party is displaced by another one.
The last time this occurred was in 1856.
Realistically speaking, there are 2 choices in this election, Romney or 0bama. Any conservative who votes for someone other than Romney is helping 0bama. Any liberal who votes for someone other than 0bama is helping Romney.
It is nice to dream of a perfect world in which we'd always get the candidates we wanted, but that doesn't exist and never will. Sometimes it boils down to 2 choices.--
