Forum Post: 3rd Party Presidential Candidate Being Ignored?

Seems like every election cycle there is a Presidential candidate that is completely ignored by the mainstream media. Theres the Democrats and the Republicans and… well… the Democrats and the Republicans.

Not this 2012 election. There is a third party candidate running for the 2D party and he has already taken on national televised debates with both President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. How come you don't know about this?

You would if you were a fan of THE GUINEAS SHOW.

http://www.blip.tv/theguineasshow

The popular animated series which features the Guineas family and its patriarch Salvatore Guinea Sr., who is running as a candidate in the 2012 Presidential election, is the backdrop for Americas favorite dysfunctional family.

In between running the family pizzeria business in Hollywood which caters to the stars, Sal Guinea Sr. was elected as the "2D Party" candidate and has the full support of his family which includes his outspoken mother Nanna Guinea, his single sister Marie and his two sons Sal Jr. and Vito Jr.

Sal's time has been split between Hollywood and Washington in this 15 episode first season which appears on numerous sites including Blip.Tv and Youtube.

In the hilarious debates between Sal Guinea Sr and Obama and Romney (episodes 13 & 14), he takes on and pulls out all stops in his bid for presidency. His "run" for President, although disheveled at times, takes an "out of the box" look at our popular culture and parodies the lives we lead and the people we know.

Featuring celebrities from all corners, the family drama intertwines with some of the worlds biggest egos. Rumor has it that in this election, there are a number of folks who aren't too thrilled with either of the two parties candidates, and so given a third option, many are are already behind Guinea's campaign.

I have seen numerous blogs, vlogs, videos, votes and even bumper stickers, all showing support for his candidacy.

Who would of thought that Washington was one big cartoon?

The dice are loaded for two parties even though the founders thought we shouldn't have any (Winner take all vs. proportional)..

Futility is defined as voting for a good third party candidate and throwing the win to the worst of the two parties. Remember, Bush, Gore, Nader?

Buddy Roemer is probably the best of the three, so the Dog Trainer (teaching dogs to car surf)? Not so much.

Buddy Roemer, the Anti-Spoiler. The more I hear about this guy, the more I like him

"If and when it becomes clear he can't win, the likely Americans Elect candidate says he'll ask any backers to vote for one of the major party candidates instead."

I think we should as individuals try to support him and make sure he raises the important issues we care about during the debates. I believe he is sincere about not being a spoiler.

I think he is a good guy. But he has about the same chance of being elected as I do. I will keep an ear tuned for what it is doing in the future.

[-] 2 points by JadedCitizen (4277) 1 year ago

He has no chance of winning and he knows it, hence his promise not to be a spoiler. But we need someone to get enough support they can get air time with Obama and Romney and force them to publicly address the issue of corruption. I think he sees his role as forcing them to debate things they would rather not discuss.

[-] 2 points by brightonsage (4494) 1 year ago

Well that would be quite useful. He is articulate and principled. Reason enough for him to be unsuccessful.

don't show him menu price if attempting dinner

We could have a rubber chicken pot luck extravaganza? It would be like a real political fun raiser.

This animated candidate has over 750,000 votes all on his own...how funny is that!

[-] 1 points by brightonsage (4494) 1 year ago

How about this idea? A conditional vote.

I cast my vote for this person if she/he is one of the top two, but not, I cast it for this person instead.

So if the person you most prefer, has a chance to win, they get the vote. If they don't have a chance, your vote goes to the lesser of two evils, so to speak?

I'm considering voting for "the peace and freedom" party by name alone

I've yet to review the candidates

Oh that's just so funny...the dysfunctionality in us all!

ALL of OWS should watch this and lighten up! Don't forget to laugh...

[-] 2 points by freedomisking (74) 1 year ago

There is such a thing as "too politically correct". When you stop laughing you dampen the soul.

[-] 1 points by freedomisking (74) 1 year ago

Third party candidates are always ignored...

[-] 3 points by dbcooper (41) 1 year ago

He has the best chance of winning this thing... He seems "over-qualified" actually... LMAO
