Bipartisan support, eh? Doesn't that make you question why we will forever continue to vote for the Republican and democratic parties candidates?

I don't think it would prevent a viable third party candidate that was universally popular Larry, if there is one that is just another same ole or a pretty much too far out there then they don't stand a chance. Except for a few on here that brag about only voting straight party no matter what I tend to think most will choose by the man. When Ventura was Gov. I think that was the highest third party achieved in recent times but it was never really followed up, then you have to face the fact that elections are bought & if you don't have the big boys backing you damn well need a great platform that can get the popular attention.

I think Kim should use boob glue. There now, what a powerful platform and that will get me voted in. 5 years of this liberal rubbish have dealt the death blow. Too many fleas coupled with the intellectual morons.

Even a good platform doesn't help.

Guess who decides which candidates are "allowed" into the debates?

The Republicans and Democrats of course!

You could have the best platform in the world, if no one can hear you speak, does it really matter?

The Libertarian Party was recently disallowed in Ohio. The Democrats and Republicans got together and voted to declare it a non-party. You can't be a Libertarian and be on the ballet as such. You can call yourself an independent, but that's it.
