Sure, it's legible, but I like it - as I'm sure others do when it isn't annoying to read it.


First, this is the internet and you are gonna see far worse grammar than that here. Technically he didn't even spell anything wrong, unless you're going to complain about "omg". He only forgot a comma, didn't capitalize and used the wrong "they're".

Second, I would vote for them to keep my conscience clear. This election is about voting for the lesser if two evils anyway (when you compare them to Ron Paul or Bob Barr that is)

Note: Lesser of two evils is an expression, meaning I just don't think they have the right stance on things (I don't actually think they're evil)

Well, some people are loyal followers.

Hey, just like when parents support their children as they compete in the American idol. Even though entertainment business is a harsh world, the parents still back them up 100%.

because some people actually support them. libertarians are the guys who want more and more civil liberties and a non-interventionist policy. the constitutionalists are the guys who want abolishment of most taxes, and they lean towards an isolationist policy. the green party mainly consists of environmentalists and pacifists.

it's because everyone thinks that there is no point in voting for third parties that it comes down to "the lesser of two evils." if you people would actually vote for the guy you really wanted, for example ralph nader or bob barr, then they would have a much better chance. these type of people that vote "the lesser of two evils" do make up a significant amount of voters.

To support them even there's a 0% chance of winning.

If everybody thinks like that, of course they are not going to win. If one thinks "Oh he's clearly not going to win, so I'm not going to vote for him" and there are a lot of them, it's a shame to not vote for that candidate...he/she could actually get an opportunity to win

To vote for one of the two primary candidates when you actually support the views of another is to perpetuate a broken system. The mindset that one is "throwing his vote away" by choosing a third-party candidate is rhetoric for that system.

At the very least, voting for another party gives that party the will to continue its efforts. If no one voted for these people, they would eventually cease to exist. Would you really prefer to have no options but the offerings of the Republicans and Democrats, who have been running the system so long that they have developed the most arrogant kind of impunity?

Do you enjoy the prospect of having to vote not for the candidate who will help the United States, but the candidate who is the lesser of two evils? I don't.

Sympathy votes, probably.
If everybody thought the same, the minority will become the majority

Well i know that some people voted for nadar in the 2004 election because a deal was made that if nadar recieved 5% of the public vote or took 2 states, that there would be a three way debate in the future with the green party.

Because not all of us are brainwashed into having a blind loyalty to the democratic or republican parties, and we like to be spiteful. Plus if no one votes for any third party candidates they'll give up, then democrats and republicans will have total control and become even more corrupt than they already are.
