A third party doesn't work, except for the Democrats. The only thing it has done in the past is to ensure that Democrats are elected.

Next time around (if there is a next time), the Libertarian Party or Constitution Party will get my vote.

Voting for Republicans doesn't work either. At least by voting third party you avoid the idiocy of repeating the same actions while hoping for different results.

Why not vote Libertarian? When given a choice between two statists why endorse a statist with your vote? There was little policy difference between Romney and Obama: Romney's/Ryan's budget INCREASES government spending by 3.1% each year, growing government faster than the private sector. It doesn't balance for 30 years. If a 3rd party vote "ensures that Democrats are elected" then perhaps Democrats will get the discredt they deserve, rather than conservatives. And perhaps the RNC will learn that supporting big government RINOs is no path to success.

In your vision, if a Republican was in office and supporting the same policies as Obama, you're OK with it because the Democrats are slightly worse.

The Republican party is DEAD!
At least for me.
I'll NEVER vote for another Republican ever again.

Burn America, burn!!!!
You deserve it!

(For clarity, I'm referring to this NEW OBAMA America...the old America is already DEAD!)

The Republican party was, at first, a third party.

Some political commentators are dancing on what they believe to be the grave of the Republican Party, claiming that the only way the GOP can have a viable future is for them to behave like Democrats.

Last weekend, National Review magazine sponsored a "conservative summit" in Washington. They should have held it elsewhere.

Prior to speaking at that event, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal addressed the Republican National Committee's annual winter meeting in Charlotte, N.C., where he proposed a new strategy for Republicans and conservatives that begins, not in Washington, but at the state level.

Jindal said the Republican Party loses when...
