Oh, it's worth it. I would like to see four or five parties. Unfortunately it's unrealistic. After all, when we vote, we are not voting our person in--we are voting to keep the other person out. I had no love for Romney when I voted for him, I just didn't want to see another four years of misery from Hussein.<quoted text>Exactly, Like what happened in '92 with 3 candidates. Perot took about 20% of the vote, much of it from GHWB.
BUT, IF voting for the 3rd party wakes up one of the others, it may be worth it.
The only possible way for a third party to emerge is if both parties pizzed off most of the public, or one more liberal party and one more conservative party came along at the same time.
