I have asked this question repeatedly... yet none of you naive idealistic folks will answer it:
Show me just ONE time a third party candidate won POTUS when both of the established mainstream parties ran their candidate... You cannot because it has never happened.
So why does anyone think it can now?
You see... not enough of the country has enough sense to think outside the box enough to elect a third party candidate. SOOO...
It is simple to me: Either we elect the Mutt... or we risk another 4 years of BHO. Which is less dangerous?
I realize lots of folks have their ego's bruised because their pet guy did not make it... The first time my ego was bruised was when George Wallace got butted out (1972). If we are not smart enough to learn how the system works (regardless of whether we agree or not)... then we are stupid enough to get the butt end of the system.
My comment to folks who want to waste their vote on a third party candidate: GROW UP.
