What is the best way to elect an Independent Candidate as the next President of the United States?
The last Independent who even stood a chance in the Presidential Elections was Ross Perot, but I hear that he only ran to help Bill Clinton win the election. But, in today's world, it is harder than ever to elect an Independent Candidate for President of the United States.
I want to use this information to help elect an Independent down-the-road someday, because I once voted for Ralph Nader in 2008, the earliest Presidential Election that I was old enough to vote in. What is the best thing I can do to help an Independent Candidate win? Democrats and republicans are too corrupt half the time!
A LOT of people agree with you.
Start by looking at other hubs. Type "third party candidates" in the search box above and see what other writers are saying. If you like what you see leave a comment of encouragement. If they recommend websites, visit them and browse. If you don't like what you see, write your own hub!
Also, if one of your close buddies starts talking about politics, don't stop them. Listen up. Unless they're talking about a new party, (gently) tell them that there is no difference. The boys on the Hill want the same thing: re-election. That's all they care about and that's all the big money cares about. Everything else--all the issues--that's just decoration to distract the idiot masses.
Then, as election time gets closer, get ready to vote for the 3rd party candidate you like the most--not just any one. Is your man/woman even on the ballot? No? If not, find out how you can get his/her name on it! You did your homework right? No? Do your homework!
It might be a lot of work but that's how democracy works. It's messy but that's how it works.
I don't do any of this. I don't even vote. I left the States years ago and I live in Japan now. The best way to appreciate your country is to leave it for a while. That's what I learned. But I'll stay overseas longer. I still have more appreciating to do.
Believe me, I once considered myself as a Libertarian, but I did
Believe me, I know how dangerous it can be to vote for any Independent Candidate! I once considered myself as a Libertarian, but there was no way that I was going to vote for a "LINO" (Libertarian in name only) like Bob Barr.
Thank you for the help!
