Nicely put, @thegecko. Ego gets in the way. So many talk about voting for a winner and voting for the lesser of 2 evils. What an upside down mentality. If things get bad enough, they might wake up, but it might be too late to do anything about it.

It is too late. Electors in my state are obligated to Barrack Obama. They are committed on the first couple of ballots. If a third party candidate wants to win, he has to hae a party, he has to make some noise, he must raise money and spread his idea
Then, Larry, it looks as though tyranny has won. We can look forward to more of the Constitution being shredded until it's gone and all who would protest are in concentration camps ("residential centers") or dead. Sieg heil
I made a mistake. Delegates in my state are pledged to Romney. Still does not help a third party candidate. Also, I do not check out You Tube every day. If he wants to reach me, he has to go a little more mainstream. You Tube is not fully impartial.

Very funny, except that the Corporate Party press is biased. They're busy marginalizing anyone who poses a threat to their dismantling of America. Just like they don't say much about Obama's treason (Kill List, etc).
This guy isn't like Chris Cristy, from a busy state. He's the governor of New Mexico. That's like being the mayor of Bedrock. If Hubpages is the largest forum for his platform, he has some serious fund raising to do. Hubpage SuperPac? Never.

Let me suggest the idea that the wasted votes are not those cast for candidates other than those of the two major parties, but those cast for candidates the voter does not like but feels he has to vote for or else waste his vote. A paradox, of sorts.
Attikos, you couldn't have said it better. If ANY vote is a wasted vote, it would definitely be what you suggested!
I just watched a video where Gary Johnson was saying that he was suing the ones organizing the debates on anti-trust grounds.
There is no basis for suing the debates on anti-trust grounds. Debate set guidelines for who will participate, usually based on poll numbers. In this case, the criteria was the nominees of the two major parties in Congress.
I understand, Larry, but I don't think those are fair criteria, especially since the ones setting the rules are Democrats and Republicans, and the Corporate Party controls public access and perception to the degree it does.
Comm. on Presidential Debates began in 1987 by the Dem.& Rep. parties to establish the way that presidential election debates are run between candidates for President. The Comm. is a non-profit,whose debates are sponsored by private contributions
My point, exactly, Larry. Adolph Hitler could've created a "non-profit," and the Rockefellers and Rothschilds could've donated a few pennies of their vast fortunes to make it plump with funds.

Buy the news? I think they already belong to another "lover," called the Corporate Party -- the party of greed. Rockefeller + Rothschild-type greed. But, oh well! Maybe we can save enough of America to start a new land of the free...

Excellent, @cjames2783. Keep spreading the good word.
good advice cjames but the Libertarian party already has occupied numerous local offices and seats across the United States. Libertarians are the most prominent 3rd party office holders here in Pennsylvania where I live.

Larry Wall says
He is very viral on the Internet. If you were looking at the ballots and who actually ran, you would know about him and Jill Stein :)
The problem with life in America (and I now live in Philippines) is that the Corporate Party decides what it wants made visible.
That's why the New World Order is frantically trying to censor the Internet. SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, TPP and more!
Despite the widespread use of the internet, and I am on it everyday, the only place I come across his name is on the Hub. No one offers a link. While he may be very viral on the Web, he is still not getting to a large portion of the population.
I understand, Larry. There can be lots of traffic, but if it doesn't pass in front of your house, you're not aware of it. But if every person who learned of it told 2 other people right away, everyone in America could know within a few weeks.
You make a good point about word of mouth advertising. The problem is that I am suspect of almost everything I read on the internet about political candidates. People say the networks are bias. They give Internet a pass on objectivity.
Being suspect is a good attitude to have with everything, including your own beliefs. Only with an empty cup can the Lord fill it with Truth.
Everyone likely has an agenda. And the Lord said that you can know a tree by the fruit it bears
So the question is... what kind of fruit does Gary Johnson bear? Probably red apples... who doesn't like red apples? =D
@thegecko... red apples? LOL! Cute! That, by itself, should go viral...
