Third Pasrties are "gateways"

Third Parties serve the major parties for the "miscontents". When major media called the Green Party nominee Ralph Nader a "Spoiler" for Gore, it showed the truth about third parties, and why they run candidates who won't ever make 5% to collect federal matching funds. They are designed to lose FOR the major party. When Nader ran in 04 as an Independent, the Democrat Party blocked his ballot access in 17 states with 21 law suits, and the GOP said nothing, except Ron Paul, who claimed Nader has the RIGHT to run and Democrats were being undemocratic. I don't expect any party whores to ever come round to Ron Paul. But I do expect Ron Paul to win, if Bush doesn't declare himself "king" first.
