    The Republicans and the Democrats have turned against the people. Except for some wedge issues like gays and abortion there is no daylight between the two parties.

    In the last election we had Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin, Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader. Could people like Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich be considered "third party?" I believe that any one of these would be better than what we have.

    They are both affiliated with their respective parties, however, neither seems to be a fit. They are like square pegs in round holes. Both managed to win post debate polls but were shoved aside anyway.

    The only third party candidates that would come close to being successful would be wealthy guys like Bloomberg.
