Comment: Where's the meat?

Where's the meat?

Oh great, now we have four alternative candidates poised to divide and and diminish their individual impact. There simply is not enough room for four "third party" candidates in terms of media attention, voter recognition and contributions.

My hope was that Ron Paul would unite the alternative parties to mount a single ticket (Pres & VP) in serious earnest. This was our only serious opportunity to challenge McCain and Obama.

Like many of you, I will now explore Barr, Baldwin, Nader and McKinney to hopefully find a good candidate; which is exactly what should not happen. A consensus was needed to maintain and channel our collective efforts and support.

Now our votes, as suggested by Ron Paul, will simply be symbolic - "sending a message that we’ve had enough and want real change."
