Of course, the left has "picked up" the issue of 3rd parties. Why? Because the "left" sees 3rd parties hurting the GOP's chance of securing the presidency more than the Democrats' chance. Regardless, ignore the mass media and just vote your conscience, i.e. do the PROPER thing from a constitutional perspective. If we, the people, get another opportunity in 2014 and 2016 to correct this mess peacefully, then so be it.
