I hear what you are saying loud and clear, and am in full agreement regarding our choices. However we do still operate like it or not within the 2 party boundries. Third party candidates are just unable to put the funding together at this time needed to get their message out. It comes down to the $$$. Social media may change that over the next few cycles, who knows, and possibly we get highly qualified 3rd party choices, not just someone better than the rep/dem offering.

I will say this, as a salesman one thing I have learned in the last 35 years: people loose the ability to make a decision when given more than 3 choices.

That is a very good point, but I think it might happened some time in the near future.

why aren't the other party candidates allowed to participate in the debates? :-/

All I know is that third party candidates tend to only have an influence in some states, while the democrats and republicans get state wide coverage.

we have smaller parties in the UK but we don't do debates...there was a call for them last year but i don't think they'll take off here. we have "party political broadcasts" here where all the parties are allowed ten minutes or so prime time on the BBC. not sure i would like to see ours in debates :-/

They needed to reach a measurable amount of support based on poles prior to the debates to be included. Neither independent candidate met the threshold.

However those thresholds are set in agreement with the two dominating parties who don't want other voices to be heard.

I tend to agree, the nepotism runs deep between the media and the politico. Husbands and wives of execs working on campaigns, former Whitehouse press secretary passing himself off as a network new man. The television news media has shit all over where it eats.

RT's bank in the UK have frozen their account. But the bank is owned by the UK Govt. RT is one of the most popular news sources in UK today and the UK public aren't buying the banks excuses and we're certainly not buying the Govt.s hysteria over Russia and Syria. So, the govt wants them silenced but it's not gonna happen.

It's a good alternative news source. If you haven't watched it, you should give it a go for a few weeks. Be warned tho'...it takes a bit of getting used to having news presented to you like you're an adult :-p

You should always try to balance your news sources, I've watched every news channel i can over the last few years...but given up on them all. I've watched RT for 5 or 6 years now, it's pretty consistent....and it's all news, no hysteria!! I can't even tell the difference between CNN now and Fox 10 years ago!

A "threshold" devised by a BIpartisan (not non-partisan) committee that's interests lie in a 2 party system. Having 2 of ANYthing is the illusion of choice. Like when your parents said "Broccoli or Cauliflower....you choose"

What we really need is no parties. Parties encourage and incentivize division, mudslinging and corrupt tactics (like rigged gerrymandering) in the government while packaging complex political issues into simplistic little boxes for the dumb.

Most vote for whoever out of party loyalty. They don't know the issues or plans. They know the word 'Republican' or the word 'Democrat'.

Abolish parties and you eradicate lowest-common-denominator pandering, inane schoolyard rivalries and force candidates to campaign not on party labels but on their fully-elaborated positions while forcing voters to actually learn those positions because they can't just vote by party label anymore.

I will not vote for a candidate I think is going to tear the country further apart, either by their actions, or because the other party despises them so much. Right now I'm torn between Johnson and writing in Amy Klobuchar who is nearly my perfect candidate.
reply

I say Amy Klobuchar sounds like the better choice. ;)

They won't exactly be major for much longer. They're giving us some of the worst presidents in US history in the same era. So therefore, let's all just vote third party, at least we'll have the right to say that tried to change America for the better.

Well you could go to a country like Greece or Israel where there are more than two major parties. Their top party has to form a ruling coalition with whoever has seats and ideological overlap. The problem is, they're all just as partisan as parties in the US so what usually happens is gridlock and more elections when no ruling majority can be formed.

[image deleted]This was the perfect year to split the parties... Bernie with his amazingly even MORE liberal group and Trump should have lost the GOP nomination and had a tantrum and run independent too. But the GOP and DNC both lost their everlovin' minds and gave us these two space wasters.

The only wasted vote is a vote NOT cast.

Voting your conscience is how the system is supposed to work. Not trying to manipulate the outcome.

And Jill Stein IS that bad.

Just between you and me, I just wanted to see everyone's reaction on Imgflip, I'm probably more than likely voting for Hillary. I just wish in the near future, a third party would come up from the ground.
