What would it take for you to vote for an independent this November?

Everyone pretty much knows where I stand. How about you? What would it REALLY take for you to buck the norm?

Nothing. Already going to.

As for the "a chance they'd win," how can you ever expect to change the ridiculous 2 party system we have if you don't show the 3rd party candidates that you're willing to throw votes their way?

As it is, the two candidates are forced to shoulder the extremist views of the assholes on both sides in order to get their votes. That wouldn't happen if there were more options.

Hell, I remember back when this whole thing started and most die-hard Republicans were pissed about McCain being selected because he was too moderate.

I'd love to go 3rd party or independent but I'd rather not get stuck with McCain/Palin.

I honestly feel like the majority of people do exactly this. How depressing is it that you vote for someone out of fear of the other?

Media didn't do a damn thing to Ron Paul.

Ask people their opinion of him, they've either never heard of him, or have formed their OWN opinions [good, bad or indifferent] of the words straight from his mouth.

Get back to me when the 'Ron Paul's a Muslim' or 'Ron Paul is the actual father of his daughter's baby' or 'Ron Paul, Manchurian Candidate?' memes start circulating.

No, no, no. I'm sorry for even bringing it up. I don't want this to be a Ron Paul thread. I'd be willing to discuss it but not in this thread.

I am paying little to no attention to the crap that passes for a presidential race. I am writing in Ron Paul and voting FOR someone instead of against someone this time. The other two can be discovered to be gayer than J. Edgar for all I care.

If you could convince me that the bulk of the electorate had the gonads to pull something like that, I'd be in there in a heart beat.

It's just not there and seems more like a waste. Not as much of a waste as not voting, but a waste nonetheless.

I am too. I've loathed both political parties long enough to stop indulging in it all together. Well, on a local level they can claim whatever affiliation they choose, it's an entirely different ballgame and I vote based on issues alone. That's just me though.

How does it ever change if this is the mentality? And we are sincerely being raped day after day, year after year, and generation after generation. And we willingly line up to do it. I don't have an answer but just doing what we've been doing in the polls for the last 7 decades is not going to do anything.

The Democratic party nominating the least qualified, tested, or experienced candidate available to them to choose from.

Republican isn't an option.

And if "mainstream media" did "allow it", Ron Paul would wind up being the same bought and paid for crap we have now.

Don't kid yourself.
