    Could someone please help end my confusion.

    First I was told "Do not vote for any third party. You will only be wasting your vote!" By going third party my vote would have no value.

    Now I am told "If you vote Third Party, you will only be hurting the ?major? party." Thus it seems my vote for a third party does have a very significant value, even if only used as a means to "slap" the major party and make them aware not all voters are happy with them.

    Now it would seem that one side or the other in this third party vote value issue has been lying.

    Please help end my confusion by letting me know, "Which side has been lying?"

    If you vote 3P you give Obama one less competitor.

    And you earn the "puke" designation.

    The last time we had a (real)chance to vote for a third party, we began hearing a "giant sucking sound" and it was coming from....... the Oval Office hallway. Remember?

    Check out the link. One of the best headlines I've ever seen.

    At the risk of nit picking the best headline would read something like, "Romney Wins - GOP Retakes the Senate".

    However, your Slick Willie headline is without doubt one of the top 3 funniest EVER. LOL!

    The reason a third party won't work YET, is that Democrats are loyal to the bone!

    Even when the Communist have taken over the Party, most will not leave it nor correct it. If you don't believe me, check out the "Communist Party of America" and see who are members of it.

    Third Party voting only splits the Conservative ticket.

    Only when the American people(become "independent" again) get fed up, and VOTE for Country, can a third party come into existence. OR better yet, destory the two party system WE'VE allowed.

    Timberfaller,

    I thank you! You seem to be the only voice of reason replying to this thread. The results of the election completely vindicates your position. In the current, "Hey Big Government, Give me my free goodies!" environment, a third party, or even a second party can't win.

    Unfortunately we will be stuck with the "socialism" disease right up to the time the socialism disease kills its host. For the sake of those who posted some rather unintelligent responses, You and I and all the other working productive members of American Society ARE THE HOSTS.

    What I can not figure out is why someone thinks that by trying to insult someone they will influence a person to accept their attacker's view.

    So the revelation of this election is simply that voting either a third party (of any political flavor) or even a second party vote does prove to be worthless, at least until the "hosts" die off and the "Gimme my Goodies" group kills themselves off fighting over the ashes of the American working class that had supported their lifestyles.

    Stand back & listen, Joe. That sucking sound tells us, The freebies won out. Not a Party. It's easier then working. If Romney found a way to create all the jobs as he promised, they would be off the "Gimmee List" and would have to work for their keep. They don't want that to happen.
