I personally think that third parties are a great alternative to a republican and democratic(as in the party) world.  It makes me angry to hear of people having to choose the lesser of two evils.  The whole definition of democracy is the citizens vote for a candidate that best represents them and having the whole "2 party system" is activelt ruining America.  People think that if they vote for their actual beliefs that their vote will somehow mean less... a vote is a vote, and never wasted.  In fact if a vote is ever wasted its a vote thats casted because the person feels they have to vote for democrat or republican when they dont believe in either.  Although my views are more unique than anything else, i am close enough to libertarian that I include myself in them, and would much rather have a libertarian in office than any republican or democrat ever born, with the exception of Jefferson and a select few others.  Oh and by libertarian I mean an actual Libertarian not Ron Paul--[[User:TomLee|TomLee]] 23:12, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

I would say that the two main parties have lost their purposes. Their both exactly alike in their principles. Their might be conservatives in the republican party but their are also liberals. Third parties are fresh in their principles and can run on a far more consistant platform.

What do you think about third parties and why? Also if you are affiliated with a third party, what is it?

I personally think that third parties are a great alternative to a republican and democratic(as in the party) world. It makes me angry to hear of people having to choose the lesser of two evils. The whole definition of democracy is the citizens vote for a candidate that best represents them and having the whole "2 party system" is activelt ruining America. People think that if they vote for their actual beliefs that their vote will somehow mean less... a vote is a vote, and never wasted. In fact if a vote is ever wasted its a vote thats casted because the person feels they have to vote for democrat or republican when they dont believe in either. Although my views are more unique than anything else, i am close enough to libertarian that I include myself in them, and would much rather have a libertarian in office than any republican or democrat ever born, with the exception of Jefferson and a select few others. Oh and by libertarian I mean an actual Libertarian not Ron Paul--TomLee 23:12, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
