GREAT !

Anything to screw up the liberal agendas.

The liberals / fascists / progressives / communists / islamofascists or whatever they call themselves are gonna loose big time - and rightly so.

Since Hussein Obama took office, millions more ILLEGAL MEXICANS and MUSLIMS have taken root in America.

Jihad training camps are sprouting in many States.

The welfare rolls for the fat and lazy have increased drastically.

Unemployment has gone through the roof.

Race wars have errupted.
Hussein and the liberal politicians are pitting one race aganist another.

Do not vote third party now.

Divided we fall like in the 2008 elections. Seeing what we have now under Obama, poverty at record levels, a new war in Afganistan.

Recovery by Bush from dot.com bust, 9/11 attack, and Democrat's Fannie Mae by June 2009, are now the good old days. United we stand!

Independents stand for the old Democrats, if anyone should move to independents, it should be the disenfranchised Democrats.

I would like to see no more Democrat party and no more Republican Party we need independent people trying to make our nation a better place for the people to live in it get rid of the favoritism and nepotism that is destroying our nation after all these years and we have not learn anything about favoritism and nepotism and individuals put the religious beliefs the Constitution says church and state should be separated but no all you politicians want just to get the religious vote to get yourself in power just like George W. Bush was talking like God told him to become president like he was molas or something. And his brother the Governor of Florida had the vote count program for his brother win in both elections and that suspicious to you people. And it's something the Bush family knew the bin Laden family I George W. Bush had something behind 911 to get our nation fire up the go to war is all eager to go to war even before 911 and look at all the people that died on account any am George W. Bush is a war criminal and I hope some other nations gets a hold of him for what he did to our country and our economy. Because our nation has no backbone or brains between its ears to serve justice correctly on account of George W. Bush. That's why I want to see independent individuals not to party system that has no brains between its ears and that the only way to make the United States the best government in the world. But that will never happen in the United States because we have too many dimwits that can't not open their eyes to realize this. I might live in the United States of America by am not one bit proud of our politicians that make their own problems to stay in office longer and make the rich richer. They say the French did not want to go to war when 911 because they sell right through George W. Bush and what he was up to too bad American people are not that bright. If it was not for France in the revolution war America would not be America. P.S. I have written us on account of all the people that gave the ultimate sacrifice for this nation and I think of them every second that I live. That's how real Americans feels and if the rest of you do not feel this way I'll do not know how you look at yourself in the mirror each and every day because of I was God you would not get through the pearly gates

Crist is LOSING badly here in fl after the worm tried to claim independent.

His contact with Obama, trying to get in on their side was quite telling.

The goal of a third party is to win an election, but of course it takes away votes from one of the two major parties. As a result, the third party seldom wins and votes for a third party can contribute to one of the major parties losing elections. Voters choose a third party usually because of differences against the two major parties rather than choose the lesser of what they think are two evils. I am not against any third, fourth or fifth party running, I just hope that all voters are mindful of history and that the upcoming elections are perhaps the most important there has ever been for America. The country is being led to ruin and the only hope lies in decisions by the voters.

This is a REAL THREAT if people don't smarten up. The lesson learned from 2008 is that Obama won by a slim majority, and he won because Republican voters got divided. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN. YOU VOTED THIRD PARTY AND NOW WE HAVE AMERICA IN RUINS.

According to Rasmussen, all Independent candidates are officially counted as DEMOCRATs. Do not vote Independent/Democrat.

I'm not 100% happy with either major party. This country needs more 3rd party candidates. Your 1 vote is not going to decide the election, but it is your best way to make a statement.

The only hope that the unpatriotic right-wing tea-baggers have at taking control of the Congress is if the Democratic base don’t come out in force for the mid-terms. But the ace that the Democratic Party still holds is more cash on hand; a better get-out-the-vote organization; and third party candidates that will be spoilers in favor of the Democratic candidate.

Only to you loons that have no concept of the constitution..........just like odoodle.

A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.

For once Kerry is right.
