Remember who decided they didn't want third party's to be able to debate? Bill ClintonSubmitted by ArsenalGunners11 on Sat, 09/08/2012 - 14:50
In 1992, Independent candidate Ross Perot had nearly 20 million votes, and was the last third party presidential candidate to be able to debate against the Republican & Democratic candidates for president.
Bill Clinton, after many Americans felt that he only won because of Ross Perot 'Stealing' votes away from George H. Bush, was actually the guy that ended up putting the new rule in place about needing to have 15% in polls in order for a third party to debate against the Republican or Democratic candidates for president.
Bill Clinton being asked about the two-party system in 1992. Can't stand Bill Clinton to this day.
So in 1992, that was really the last time this country truly had a strong third choice.
Since then, America's FINE general elections have consisted of such FINE Jefferson's, Washington's, Adam's, and other such great Constitutionally minded individuals (NOT) such as:
Bill Clinton vs. Bob Dole
George W. Bush vs. Al Gore
George W. Bush vs. Jon Kerry
Barack Obama vs. John McCain
Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney
Oh how our founding fathers would be SO proud of those "Choices".
I just have a feeling that the number of votes for Romney or Obama is going to be low this year.
I believe this nation so badly wants to have more choices again.
I salute anyone that votes with conviction in their hearts for either writing in Ron Paul or Virgil Goode, or voting for Virgil Goode or Gary Johnson.
Like Ron Paul said, "Vote your conscience."
