3rd PARTIES


HAVING DECIDED THAT I COULD NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO VOTED FOR THE IRAQI WAR RESOLUTION, I VOTED FOR A 3RD PARTY CANDIDATE FOR US PRESIDENT IN 2004. ONCE AGAIN IN 2016 I WOULD DO THE SAME AS HILLARY HAD VOTED FOR THIS RESOLUTION AS WELL.
WHILE I SUPPORT A TWO PARTY SYSTEM I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THE DEMOCRATS AND REPUBICANS HAVE MADE IT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS FOR INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES AND PARTIES TO SUCCEED.
THIS IS UNFORTUNATE AS WE ARE BEGINNING TO SEE THE EMERGENCE OF THE RADICAL LEFT IN RESPONSE TO THE EMERGENCE OF THE RADICAL RIGHT. THOSE OF US IN THE MIDDLE WILL HAVE TO INCREASINGLY HOLD OUR NOSES AND PICK THE LESSOR OF TWO EVILS!
