I'm sorry you had to type all that. I was talking about being patient with the voters. My point is to get viable third party candidates in at the ground level and lead by example. Win the voters over by running average everyday people to represent average everyday people. Eventually, a viable third party will have a chance at the presidency. It's not now, and it's not soon. But, it eventually has to happen.
I wouldn't be as concerned if it were just the presidency. If a "President Romney" would face Republicans and Democrats in Congress and the courts who manifested atrue appreciation for liberty and limits on government, then that would be another matter. But McConnell, Boehner, have a great taste for pork -- just like the Republicans who ran Congress under Bush. Eric Cantor and John Kyl may be a little better, but I see no reason to expect them to defy their party leaders, let alone a GOP president.

I understand what you're saying. We ran our candidate here for the senate, stuck to our convictions, but that big GOP machine with all of it's money just ran right over him. Now we're stuck with an establishment republican RINO candidate for the senate. He'll never take the seat from Menendez in this very blue, entitlement ridden state. It's very difficult these days to become known to the public without big financial backing. A left leaning press doesn't help either.
The 2010 GOP ticket in California was horrendous. Other than Meg Whitman, they were not well known nationally, it included nanny state Republicans like Mike Villines and Abel Maldonado (both of whom played a big role in Arnold's tax hike).

You are right. But that's what we are faced with.
I look at Obama as a falling plane and Romney as a parachute.
Neither one will get us to where we want to go. But one gives us the chance to catch a later flight.

"He took office at a time when the U.S. economy was on its worst slide in 75 years, but pushed policies using borrowed money that were more meant to preserve government jobs than broadly help the private sector where the great majority of Americans work, ensuring the jobs crisis continued.

He railed against the heavy spending and big deficits of his predecessor, but blithely backed budgets that had triple the deficits ever seen in American history.

He promised a smart, sweeping overhaul of the U.S. health care system, but ended up giving us a Byzantine mess promoted to the public with myths: that offering subsidized care to tens of millions of people would save money; that people would keep their own doctors; that access to care wouldn’t change; and that rationing would never happen.

He promised a more sophisticated approach to the economy than that of his predecessor, but had so little common sense that his health law actually gave businesses a big financial incentive to discontinue providing health insurance to their employees.

He offered hosannas to genius entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs in his prepared remarks, but when speaking off the cuff betrayed his faculty-lounge view of the world, saying of businesspeople,“if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.”

He swore to bring overdue oversight and honest accounting to the corporate world, but made flagrantly dishonest claims about General Motors paying back its government loans that would have triggered a criminal fraud investigation in the private sector.

He promised to set a high new standard for ethics in the White House, but used a baffling claim of executive privilege to shield his embattled attorney general from the repercussions of a cover-up involving the death of a federal law enforcement officer.

He denounced his predecessor for permitting harsh interrogation tactics with suspected terrorists, but once in office somehow concluded that a better, more moral approach would just be to use drones to assassinate such suspects without getting any information from them.

He presented himself as a shrewd student of Washington politics, but once in office displayed a counterproductive standoffishness to many Democratic lawmakers eager to embrace him, never developing the broad range of personal relationships that often mark a successful presidency.

He ran as a unifying force who would bring in a new era of civility and racial healing to Washington, but once in office embraced ugly, Chicago-style political hardball that saw nothing wrong with his supporters’ loathsome practice of depicting opposition to his policies as being driven by racism.

He constantly offered praise for the wisdom and insights of the American public, but reacted to the broad discontent over Obamacare, high unemployment and vast deficits by saying it was a failure of his administration to properly explain its glorious record to a confused populace – not a predictable reaction to his struggles and ineffectiveness.

And in December 2011 – at a time in which one-quarter of American adults who wanted full-time work couldn’t find it, after a year in which the federal deficit was a staggering $1.3 trillion – here was what Barack Obama had to say for himself in a CBS interview:“I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president, with the possible exceptions of Johnson, FDR and Lincoln.”

Unbelievable. If self-reverence were a crime, our current president would be facing a life sentence. For the good of America, let’s pray we have someone else in charge of the federal government come Jan. 20, 2013."

What Santelli did was organize existing groups by networking them. He was referring to existing groups during his rant at the Chicago Board of Trade. The name was actually inspired by the Ron Paul campaign in '07.

I never could understand why "Moonbeam" was chosen over Meg Whitman. Didn't Gov. Brown plant the seed that is causing problems in California today?

Right! I don't see many independent voters voting for p.o.t. usa at all this election. That's just my feelings though. It's pretty disgusting, when you try to point out obamas lies and failures, all you hear is "bush this" "romney that" and "republicans did this". We know. This assumption that anybody who disagreed with all this supported big spending conservatives is Crap. In fact it sounds just as stupid as all these people who pretend these gop candidates are true conservatives. I see the election going to Obama. I also see an unexpected number of voters sitting the presidential vote out. Think any anti war voters won't vote?

Oh sorry I forgot, you are right :-). I think Bush should come out and make a statement that he is taking full responsibility for the last four years that Obama was President too. For the "common good" this needs to be done....

Careful how you spell it, mesage sounds like massage too, isn't that what qualifies as looking for work now, in obama's welfare reform gutting. Gosh that is Obama's message, say what is the legality of this one, can he just gut welfare reform, rewrite welfare reform. Impeachable offense, no it won't happen but is a direct violation of our Constitution. Also bright enough criticism but yet can't spell message lol.......
