    If you could put a third choice on the ballot for the election this November who would it be? If possible try and come up with someone who would have real chance not a Ralph Nader or Ron Paul sadly I can't think of anyone who would be any better than the two choices we have now.

    The political duopoly sees to it that there aren't any other choices.

    Try so much as getting your favored candidate on the ballot, if he isn't a demopublicratican.

    I actually think we need 2 more Parties. we need a Moderate Version of the Democrat Party which IMO is fully controlled by the Far left at this time. On the Republican Side, Despite the Rhetoric I think we need a More Far Right party, so the Fucking Wack Jobs can finally get out of the GOP and go be with their Fellow Right wingers.

    So then we would have a Far Left Party, a Moderate Left Party, and Moderate Right party, and a Far Right Party.

    Never going to happen but one can Wish. In My Life I have been Both a Democrat and a Republican, Both a Liberal and A More Conservative Person. During that time I have always First the Dem, and then the Republican Party Run away from the Very Ideals that Drew me to them. I truly am a Man with no Party.

    Not even the Existing other parties really fit me. Everyone that knows me says ahh your a Libertarian, but really? Some of the stuff those People will Tolerate in the Name of Individual Freedom at all costs Blows my Mind. Their Isolationist Look on National Defense also loses me.

    Where am I to go lol.

    We already have that.

    Far Left Party = Green party

    Moderate left party = Pretty much non existent

    Moderate right party = Democrats

    Far right party = Republicans

    Extremist far right party = Tea party

    There is no one even on the horizon who looks attractive to me. Both parties have ensured that sane people haven't a snowball's chance in hell of advancing to national prominence.

    Fucking Hilarious, thanks for the Laugh Hack. The Modern Democrat Party is fully in the Control of the Likes of Pelosi, and Reed, and Dean, and Obama. It has become the Party of the Left. It is nothing like the Party I used to Support and Vote for regularly.

    But then why am I bothering to argue with a Complete Partisan hack anyways. Both Parties count on Useful idiots like yourself, who will blindly repeat their Propaganda and Defend what ever they do. Congrats on being the Poster Child for what is Wrong with American Politics today.

    If forced to choose, I'd go with Thomas Sowell.
    The problem is, Democrats would never vote for a black man who's left the plantation.

    The Tea party does what all you third party whiners wish you had the energy to do if you were smart enough to do it. Tea Party people don't always get what they want but at least they work within the system to try to get the best candidates. I guess democrats have CUSA and of course there are the dirty tricksters and the anarchists to contend with.
