In our country, the vast majority of ELIGIBLE voters are PO'd after every election. They come from two groups, the 22% that VOTED and LOST and the 55% that hardly EVER vote and did NOT vote because they are already PO'd at the parties and the candidates. So -- there is much unhappiness after every election. You have no idea if that fired up poster you meet on-line ever ACTUALLY got their ass off the couch and cast a vote -- but they are just as angry as the genuine Party animal that got rejected. And look at the party faithful. How can THEY be happy even when they WIN? The Dems still face the same set of problems they've been pledging to fix for DECADES now. They blame their failure on those pesky right-wingers. Wasn't THEIR FAULT when they had all 3 branches of govt under their control that they didn't ramp up the law-making machine and FIX all that. The Reps do exactly the same. Now --- go fetch me a picture of what a THREE WAY finger pointing looks like. It's a bit harder isn't it? Having just 2 choices devolves into fear and finger pointing. You tell me what fraction of those voting are only voting out of FEAR of the other party -- and I'll show you "wasted votes" .. 1 - Only four Party Bosses now control Congress. The other 531 members are TOTALLY irrelevant. THAT'S wasted votes. 2 - About 12 to 15% of Congressional seat races are ABANDONED by the parties and written off as loss. Leaving the 40% of the minority party in that race completely "wasting their votes". UNLESS -- there happens to be a Libertarian or Green candidate on the ballot to make it a contest. 3 - The 55% of registered voters who are so turned off by the shouting and "anti" voting -- that they do not take part in the process are "wasted votes". 4 -- Gerrymandering has gotten so efficient is IS like 2 foxes deciding on how to split the hen. And TOGETHER they conspire to KEEP their monopoly corporations free from competition by BARRING ballot access to other parties and choices. Libertarians don't care about "winning".. Read that again. We will not pander to get elected. BUT -- as elected officials, it will be about prioritizing and presenting issues for PUBLIC support to get the other 2 parties to cooperate with a "populist" type of administration. Lots of things would be EASY targets to fix actually. If you don't care about winning -- but care about busting up the duopoly that has strangled our very expensive ,. , mostly dysfunctional govt. So for the fear voters out there. You actually "fear" Johnson/Weld MORE than your candidate? And for the constantly torqued "non-voters" -- you want a chance to show your anger and despair at being locked out? Vote for the BETTER choices. NOT to win.. Or you've got nothing to gripe about when things go ugly voting for people who do not deserve your vote.
