This is what's wrong with blind idealism and political self labelling:

"I know a lot of people in this community had no intention of watching the debate, and I can't say I blame them. Many of us are either voting libertarian or not voting at all, and rightly so."


And rightly so...
"a directionless voice or mute. hear hear."

For the lower level offices I totally concur with this idea of sticking by your ideals and voting in candidates who are not part of the traditional two party system. It works. And it's the only way to EVENTUALLY have a non republican, non democrat candidate as a VIABLE contender for president. But, man, way to ensure that you are ignored by the system through your own desperate clinging to self imposed boundaries.

We're just stupid, ya know. I don't mean just Americans becuase the English and the Australians are just as fucking stupid with thier blind party loyalties as we are. I mean humans.
We're just fucking dumb.

Actually I think the English are just rather doomed.

I mean nobody wants to vote Labour, but the Conservatives are pathetic and the Liberal Democrats will never get in, so they have no actual choice if you see. Hopefully sometime soon both of the opposition parties will actually get credible leaders, but until then it's total bollocks.
