You may not have heard about the Green Party but they are

serious and will have a legitimate candidate for President this

year. I find the Democrats and Republicans too much alike in

most ways to even have a real choice. It seems like it comes

down to which will do our Country less harm.

Have you thought that it might be time to let another Political

Party have a chance?

    I would, I have and I will vote for the Constitution Party.

    I would not vote Green Party ever. If you look up parties that have any significant following at the present, they are, right to left, with principal stand or cause,
    1. Constitution Party. Christian Conservative,
    2. Republican Party. Capitalist Conservative.
    3. Libertarian Party. Schizophrenic.
    4. Democratic Party. Liberal.
    5. Green Party. Environmentalist.
    6. Peace and Freedom. Socialist

    Seven Principals of the Constitution Party.
    Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;
    Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;
    Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;
    Property: Each individual's right to own and steward personal property without government burden;
    Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;
    States' Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people;
    American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

    I would have voted for another party like the Libertarian Party, the Constitution Party, the U.S. Pirate Party, or similar parties. Unfortunately, 3rd parties are ineffective here in the U.S.

    You'd think that the U.S. Federal Government and the State governments would give all parties equal opportunities via multiparty system. But, it is a 2-party system with all other parties given heavy restrictions. (Oh, well...)

    Currently we do not select the Candidates, the two Parties do. We do not run our elections, the two parties do, and they in many cases illegally keep people who do not belong to their Parties off the Ballot. You are absolutely right it should be a fair playing field and everyone should be treated equally. We can not make any progress in that direction by continuing to vote for the two bullies (Parties) who now make those rules. If you continue to let them buffalo you into voting for the status-quo nothing will change and what is already bad will continue to get nothing but worse. AmericansElect needs your support and I need your support. Thank you.

    We are already a Nationwide Party and have lots of members in office at the
    State & City levels. We are having a National Convention where we will elect
    the Candidate for President. We do not accept contributions from oil
    companies or large corporations.

    Possibly, I don't care for either candidate if Romney is representing the Republicans. Who would the third party be? I don't want Romney but I would vote for a Chihuahua over Obama.

    Edit: I would never vote for the green party as I don't believe they have any interest in the well being of the American public.

    That is the dilemma that the two parties have created for us, they run our elections not us.

    The AmericansElect project is the first real attempt at a Non-Partisan Third Party, I have been trying to work with them and I need everyone's support to succeed.

    Are they interested in creating millions of good paying jobs in the energy sector, making America energy self sufficient and making the US the largest energy exporter in the world?

    I didn't hear any solutions from Jill, all I heard was she wants a change from the current political system. Change to what?

    I'm unable to "register", as I know too much for the clerk/recorder to allow my re-offer of the application. Add to that my knowledge that 'third-party' candidates stand no chance, by design, to be appointed/elected to higher offices. You knew this already.

    Yes, and that is because the two Parties run the entire system. AmericansElect is trying to change that and the only way to make progress in that direction is to support such an effort.

    You've got a CFR-member as CEO and a Rothschild as an Advisory Council member. This is my response to that:
    hell no
  • Nonpart... Gregaj7 2012/05/09 19:10:03
    Nonpartisan
    I could not care less about who is the CEO or who is on the advisory council. I will never vote for them or have anything to do with them. My only concern is who the Presidential Candidate is. That is the only person that you or I will see on the ballot and the only person that will make any real decisions when they are elected. I doubt that any of the other Candidates on AmericansElect give a blank about who the CEO or who is on the advisory council either. When they are elected President the CEO and advisory council of AmericansElect will be totally irrelevant to the person elected, and by the way that same statement should apply to the Democratic Party, the Republican Party and any other Party. If it does not, it is the Candidates fault not the Parties fault.

    Please do not blame me for what you think of other people. My Campaign has always run as a Non-Partisan, and when my proposals to make the election process more free and fair are implemented it will be more easy for real Candidates to run without having to hook up with the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, AmericansElect, or any other Party, which is run bu someone you may not like.

    If you think previous Presidents were not 'marionettes', then you haven't been paying attention. The power of the President has never been in the individual holding the office, but in the influence behind the scenes. The last "independent" thinking President was either Jackson or Lincoln.
    Have fun with your candidacy.

    There has NEVER been a third party candidate that got elected regardly how qualfied.
    The feeling you're throwing away your vote on one doesn't seem to make the effort of voting worth it. You choose the one between the two major parties that you hope represents your interest better.

    Incidentially, any organization that's associated with Roseanne Barr is immediately regarded as suspect until proven innocent.

    You are throwing away your vote if you continue to vote for the status-quo.

    By the way, several third party Candidates HAVE won in State elections including Governor.

    The AmericansElect Project is trying to break the status-quo and with enough support they will succeed. they will be on the ballot in all states in November.

    That is your opinion and you are entitled to it. Most of the people I talked with agree feel that BOTH the Candidates from the Republican and the Democratic Parties were just as bad and did not vote for either one of them, so trying to blame that on any third Party is absolutely BOGUS. Way more than 20% of the voters just did not vote for either one of the losers that the Democrats and Republicans were running or anyone else because they did not like any of the choices, so your logic is totally BOGUS.

    I and most of the people that I have talked with agree with the title of Jim Hightower's book "If the Gods Wanted Us to Vote They Would Have Given Us Candidates", by Jim Hightower: I have not read this book, however, the title says what a lot of the voters who do not vote for President and some of the other offices tell me.

    I am trying to help fix the election system so that the above described problem will not occur. I will never vote for the lesser of evils, because they are all just as bad I will continue to vote to make the kind of change that will help everyone. If you chose not to that is your choice and you are entitled to make any choice you want to, even if it is totally counterproductive to what you say that you really want.
