I've seen a decent amount of stuff on here about third parties, and "trying to divide us". Its the same crap the Republicans tell the libertarians and Ron Paul crowd....

I say that more choices is better for everyone. I can even make the case for eliminating parties all together. That being said, here are some outsider parties

  • Green Party- a very good party for progressives
  • Socialist Party- a very good party for, um, socialists
  • Socialist Workers Party- a very good party for those in unions
  • Reform Party- a very good party for those who are tired of the usual nonsense in politics
  • Libertarian Party- a very good party for those who are tired of government interference in business and personal lives/decisions.
  • Justice Party- a good party for socially liberal and financially conservative people

The list goes on and on....here is link, check it out. Where do you fit in? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_parties_in_the_United_States#Parties_with_federal_representation

Very true points. I would personally love to see our Congress filled in the same manner as some European parliaments, where parties get a number of representatives equal to the proportion of votes that they receive. Not everyone fits in to the D or R molds (and they're more similar than I'd like) so the European system would produce a group that was more representative or our diverse views than what we currently have IMO.

Should Greens go with Stein? Or Anderson?

Should Reformers go with Roemer? Or is he too establishment Republican?

These are the real parties, the ones with people who care in them. If they only cared about the money and the bright lights, they would join the D/R machine.
