Could This Be The Year A Third Party Candidate Upsets The Apple Cart?!

I was thinking, if this scenario played out, a third party candidate could very well have a legitimate chance of winning the presidency.

Scenario: Let's say that the nominee for the Republicans was Newt Gingrich and the nominee for the Domocrats was Hilary Clinton. I think that if such a scenario occurred, and it very wll may, I think a third party candidate could very well step in and send the Demopukes and Republipukes sliding on their ears.

The American people are increasingly getting tired of politics as usual... Look at the political atmosphere we've got now. We've got a man on the Democratic end, who is running on nothing more than appearance and pop culture following. Think real hard, it's not hard to figure out who this "mystery guy" is. Then we have a woman who, for all intensive purposes, should have socialist tattooed to her head.

The on the dear old Republican side, well, whodo we have? We have several candidates that don't even get mentioned and then we have Giuliani, is he even Republican? We have John McCain. I wouldn't be surprised to see Newt throw his hat into the ring.

Given the current atmosphere,I think most people are looking for real change,not this hybrid version the Democrats are going to want to offer. They shout "change," without ever defining what it is they want to change.

So,I am going to make a prediction right here, right now, a third party Candidate will indeed be the political "dark horse" in the 2008 election. Watch and see what I tell you.

It looks thats this year both parties are equally despised by an awful lot of people. I think a 3rd party would basically be on even ground this year with the big two. However, the media has been known to simply ignore alternatives to the status quo. Just look at whats happening to Ron Paul. He's a legitamite Congressman yet hes suffering complete media blackout. Why? I dont know. I guess the media just doesnt like him.

Yeah, the media is certainly in cahoots with the two money drinking major political parties. Also, it's hard for a third party candidate to stand much of a chance when the Republipukes and Demopukes have all of the money tied up. Both parties are afraid of a third party contender..

Unity08 is intended to present an alternative to the bickering between democrats and the republicans. Unfortunately the Unity08 alternative is a democrat and a republican on the same ticket. My guess is that the media will give the candidates from this group better coverage than they give distinct third parties. The Demopublicans in Washington feel the winds of change blowing so they have come up with this trick pony to create a perception of change without accomplishing any actual change.

As stated by a previous poster, the media is failing to give candidates such as the libertarian Republican Ron Paul a fair opportunity to have his message heard by the public. At the opposite end of the political spectrum is the socialist leaning Democrat Dennis Kucinich who's voice is also being silenced by lack of media exposure. Whether or not you agree with the ideology of either, it is clear that both have a high level of integrity that has no place in the Demopublican crime family running this country.

We need to be hearing more in the media from the various third parties and the media sequestered members of two major parties. This will not be a year of change if their is anything the Demopublicans and the corporate media has anything to say about it.

Royal, with that I will certainly agree with you on. I have never seen such a group of "candidates" in my life.
