in all seriousness though, if you have that many legitimate candidates the process could potentially become a nightmare as I can't imagine anybody would get the electoral votes needed. Once it goes to the House all bets would be off.
Not sure, but it likely was how Clinton was elected to his first term in 1992...it certainly didn't hurt him in any way.

And yes, I understand your reservations, but I am wholly fed up with choosing between two dog turds because the ever increasing partisan divide in this country drives people to vote ever more so. Being an independent voter who is not beholden to party politics, when it comes time to make informed and responsible voting decisions, it is increasingly frustrating that the driving force behind who I get to choose from is made by people who haven't the will to do the same, and just vote for the person they think will keep their party in power.

You know, you're right. That may be a bad idea.

I agree with all of this. I was a registered Libertarian from 2000-2016, dropped my registration based on that absolute fiasco of a ticket they put up last time around. Unfortunately, our political psyche isn't hard wired to be independent enough to step beyond party identity politics in national elections. All across the country we have independents, Libertarians, etc...in local office...but not at the national level.

don't know if I specifically forgot about Perot or am just blocking that out of my mind.

I feel your pain.


True Confessions: I voted for Perot.

I read George Bush's lips, and he said "I am a lying son of a bitch backstabber", so I voted for Perot.
