I'd like the candidates to take the test. Just to see.

Id like "I side with" more if it actually took Romney's politics into it, and not just each party's platform.

I am a Conservative Libertarian.  I have voted 3rd party before with disappointing results.  Voted for Ross Perot and got Clinton.  Voted for Bob Barr and got Obama.  At the time, did I feel that I was throwing my vote away?  No.  Did it give me license to complain about who did get elected?  Yes, but the feeling was less than satisfactory.  I, too thought that voting 3rd party would help send a message to the R & D.  In my opinion, it did not.  The Libertarian Party is the next largest party (last I knew) next to the Republicans and Democrats.  Drug legalization, anti-war, anti-intervention and small limited government basically steps on the toes of the Republicans and Democrats alike.  Unless they start getting footholds in Congress, I don't see them as a very realistic, viable option for the Executive branch.  I'm being a realist here.  I promised myself before the 2008 election that I would not vote Republican or Democrat ever again.  It looks like I'll be breaking that promise this election.

Falling on your sword for an unwinnable candidate is in today's tight political morass is almost like giving the vote to the Democrats. Though admirable in thought, not a good idea in reality. Most moderates and third party are center right or more right leaning, seldom has a Left leaning third party entered the legitimate mix. So any vote from the right to a third party is a vote taken away from the Republican candidate.

Again, in a non-swing state, this isn't true at all. My state's electorate is giving Obama 'my' vote no matter whose name I put on the ballot.

I'm NOT taking a vote away from Romney (which isn't a terrible thing anyway) since even if I DID vote for him- he wouldn't have gotten it anyway.

If the election was based on the popular vote- the case could be made for dividing parties in favor of a lost cause, but it ain't, so it can't.

That is the point. The message is lost in the morass of large state political dominance. NY will go Democrat no matter what, so the message of a vote for a third party is lost. Even out here in Nebraska, the urban centers of Omaha and Lincoln go Democrat, the rural counties go Republican, and the split sent to the electorial college is representitive. The all or none states are the problem.

Romney is a left leaning moderate. I won't vote for him. Either the GOP will start getting the message, or I'll start looking for real estate in Arizona.

Amazing how many 1%'rs this forum has... 

I remember Ross Perot, and at least he got on the stage for the debates. Flip chart for the win. Another 4 years for Clinton...


It would be interesting to see what would happen to American with another 4 years of Obama... You think it is bad now... heh, heh. Imagine if your energy prices doubled again...

Course part of the problem with youth is the way they think they "know better" than their elders. I remember being that age, and thinking that way too. 



Romney 50%
Obama 46%
Other 1% 
Undecided 3%

A: For every elder backing your idea, there's an elder opposing it. There are just as many liberal elders in politics as conservatives so it does no good to tell someone to listen to their elders. You should think for yourself and from your own experience.

B: I just really hate that phrase. Youth have alot of intellectual advantages and shouldn't be downplayed. You know what old people hate? Change.

C: Most people on this forum are in their 20s. Your extra decade or two hasn't created THAT big of an intellect gap ;)
