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)
i think that they are good, and that their should be far more than 2 parties, but if you vote for a third party, your basically throwing your vote away, i mean sure you are voting for what you beleive in, but the purpose of your vote is so you can elect someone you want to be president, lets say that the person you wanted to win got 10000 votes, the person you wanted second got 100000, and the person you disliked most got 100001 votes wouldn't you say your vote was wasted?-Greenmeanie 23:57, 19 May 2008 (EDT)
