Not if they don't know about him. That takes the big guns of the media. That's corporate control—not market.
Then there's the horse race mentality—they like him but feel he can't win.

All the weed legalizers will be watching for sure. Probably too high, though.

If I did more research, I bet I could find still more countries whose democratic processes are far more fair than our own.

But then again, I don't really give a shit about democracy. I think it's a dumb idea.
Interesting. Austria is difficult to enter and live, prices for basic things like jeans are out very heavily taxed, and if you immigrate to Austria, you have to pass a test as a fluent verbal and written communicator in their native language or your visa is immediately revoked.

We've kicked Germany's ass twice for world atrocities, tore down the wall and saved them from communism and our military supports a large part of their economy and defends them.

I would vote for Ralph Mouth from Happy Days over Obama, that's for certain.

That's funny you fantasize about muslims invading your cornfield with a Christian fundamentalist.


Because he's black. Why else would vote for the other guy with the same policies?

You might be too stupid to discuss politics when you can't operate a tooth brush.

While that is true, I think 15% is too high. Perhaps 3-5%?

If you set it at 3-5%, you could conceivably have the major party candidates polling at a combined 85% and still have a stage crowded with 6 or 7 candidates, which is way too many. I think the goal here is to keep it to two unless a well funded candidate, like Ross Perot in the 90s, has demonstrated the ability to attract a significant following and I think that's a good goal. YMMV

Third party candidates should not expect any support unless that party is ready to work at a grass roots level to get their people elected to statehouses and Congress before moving on to the Presidency.

The debate last night would have been infinitely more interesting with a third party to keep both of the others in check. Romney ran away with it, but he wouldn't look so rosy right now if he had someone to the right of him making him stammer. Gary Johnson was a much better, more conservative executive as governor of New Mexico than Romney.

Yes, but Romney was a much better, more conservative executive as governor of Massachusetts than Johnson.

In fairness, Johnson had a better showing at the debate than Obama.
