I see what you're saying, but when I was referring to 3rd party, I was mostly referring to Nader, the only third party that is even mentioned by the mainstream, and he has a whopping 3% in the polls. My point is, mainstream America has absolutely NO clue who Badnarik is, not to mention the candidates from the other third parties, i.e. Socialist, Reform, Green, etc. At this point, it would be ABSOLUTLEY impossible, no way in hell, for ANY of those candidates to even show up on the radar in mainstream America, even if you went door to door, most people would not even take the candidate seriously, but again I state I am not one of those closed-minded sheep. I would like to see different parties gain power, but would like to see them in smaller offices first, then the senate and so on, we'll see if, once holding some power for awhile, if they remain the people's champions, or if they become tainted with the same disease of corruption we see now.

I often wonder why he is mentioned ALL the time but the Libertarians which is the third largest party in the country are pretty much blacklisted?

Do you think it could be that the republicans would pretty much be split as a party?

I can almost guarantee that if more conservatives were aware that there was an option to the current administration Bush would be fighting yet another 2 front war.

The liberal media, and when I say that I'm not refering to all of them, just the hardcore libs, still have a sore because they blame Nader for Gore losing... blah, blah, blah...
Nader isn't a third party candidate this year. He is running as an independent. The Greens have a different candidate this year, which the media also does not discuss.

I do agree with you that 3rd parties need to start at the grass roots. With city/county commissioners, then state offices, and then federal... BUT, having a third party candidate running for the top makes it easier for those running for local offices to gain some recognition.

Why are the Libertarians so scary.

Well, it's simple. They are a danger to all the free floating money coming from Washington without accountability.

GOD FORBID, someone would have to watch where the money goes. Politicians would see their spending on paper for the public to read because most of it would be collected and spent by THE STATE.

If corruption does not exist, how will they get fat envelopes and/or briefcases.

This may or may not be true, but I'm am almost positive it is somewhere in Washington.

But it really comes down to power. The more power the Big Two get, the more money they collect. The more money they collect the more power they can buy.

Etc

I can't help but think that every time someone who would have voted 3rd party picks one of the big 2 because they have a better chance of winning that they are really killing the 3rd parties chances of ever becoming established. Its nice to say "ill do it next time when its not so important" but what happens when the next time is the same deal, and you pick the lesser of two evils because of odds of winning?
