Everyone (for most definitions of "everyone") seems to think that the USA is strictly a two-party system, and there are no choices besides Democrat and Republican. If that is true, then the election will boil down to a choice between the Lesser of Two Evils. The truth is that there are a large number of political parties putting up candidates for president, and also some independent candidate, such as comedian Ron White.
It's also true that a so-called "third-party" candidate doesn't stand a snowball's chance in Tucson of being elected, and that the system is rigged so that the winner will always be either a Dem or a Rep. But this year we can utilize the system to send a powerful message to both major parties. On my blog, I'm advocating that people vote for None of the Above. ( Click Here)
If enough people vote for a third-party candidate - ANY third-party candidate - then neither of the major candidates will get more than 50% of the popular vote. This denies them a mandate for leadership.
Going one step beyond that, if enough people vote for a third-party candidate, then neither of the major candidates will get more than 33% of the popular vote. This sends a clear message that the majority would prefer ANYBODY but them.
Realistically, the next president will be either Clinton or Trump. But this None of the Above strategy at least gives We the People the chance to tell them how we really feel about it.
