I have always felt that a third party has been needed in the United States, and I was just wondering what everyone else thinks. I was just saying this because when you get down to all today, it really is only about voting for the names and the party names than it is voting for people who have different agendas. I would like to see the Libertarian Party become that third party due to my anarchist tendencies; however, I do realize that some form of government will always exist -because theoretically anarchy is a form of government- and I would like to see a government that focuses on defending the individual and the nation, keep law and order, and provide a stable currency. That's just me though, I could be wrong and I welcome your opinion.   

 

And if I did anything wrong, please excuse me for this is my first post here.

The game strategy that most Americans subscribe to is that a vote for a 3rd party is wasted.  So either the strategy of enough players has to change (seems unlikely), or the voting system itself needs to be changed to a Condorcet Tally or Borda Count or something like that.

This is from Chris Weigant's blog - Exceptional Democracy (April 2010). The article is interesting on many levels, and while it doesn't really answer the Big Question --

 

If America is truly supposed to be exceptional in all things, why do other countries -- almost without exception -- decide our governmental structure isn't really for them, when it comes time to choose?

 

-- it nonetheless presents clues I haven't seen anywhere else so far.
