Sad that the Corporate Party media doesn't make the third party candidates known. Covering their hidden agenda: Obama = Romney, so the election is effectively rigged in the Corporate Party's favor.
That sounds very paranoid which probably means that there is some truth to it. consider that there is a Corporate Party and A Government Party. Both corrupt. Both hold some facts in common.

And yet Romney = Obama on every issue important to the future existence of America. War, insolvency and tyranny. Both are Corporate Party puppets. That's why the Corporate Party media won't tell you that Johnson is available in all 50 states
Enthusiastically support Romney because Obama is the worst? Romney may be the lesser of two evils but he is still going to run this country into the ground. Check out Gary Johnson. A real candidate that has a proven track record.
Then someone had better get him acting lessons because he may be a better choice then most, if he can't get that across in sound bites no one cares.

I agree with this one 100%. I've been doing the candidate research, and his stance on the issues is pretty much on point with my own personal stance. The ugly truth is that a libertarian will never be in office. The electoral colleges won't do it
The electoral collage however doesn't vote our way unless the populous give them a general mandate. It is interesting that we have two dominant machines but then it wouldn't matter what the machines were. Look at Europe. Different machines same #.
What I'm saying is that it doesn't really matter who the general population votes for, the electoral college can choose to vote the way of the population or not. If we could break away from this reb/blue race we could get a real president.
If my memory serves that is only in some stats. Most states actually have bound electorates. If you wanted to become an activist in your state that would be a change that would happen at the local state level.
After some research, I do not believe that is correct. The electoral colleges are set, and becoming an activist wouldn't mean anything. For example, I'm all for voting for Gary Johnson, but the electoral colleges would never vote a libertarian in.
when I am talking about a bound electoral college I am referring to the electoral college being bound to the majority vote in a state. I was therefore stating that if a majority of your state voted lib then the lib party would choose the slate
My understanding is that the electoral colleges are not bound to vote with the majority. I've researched this exact question, and everything that I have found states that while they usually vote with the majority, it is not required.
I wonder what would happen if they ever tried to vote contrary. I cant remember it ever happening.
