Third Party Politics
Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos!
Looking for a political affiliation that isn't Democratic or Republican?
Take a look at, and learn more about some of your Third Party options. Most democratic countries in the world have many political parties, which is more what the designers of the US Constitution had in mind when they created it. It's sort of been an accident that the US political system has come to be dominated by an "either/or" choice, and the only reason that it hasn't changed is because YOU, the voter, doesn't demand more choices. The good thing about this is that it is relatively simple to fix: make a choice that has nothing to do with either the Democratic or Republican parties!
I'd rather vote for something I want and not get it than vote for something I don't want!
