Voting For a 3rd Party is a GOOD IDEA!!

For years, people have told me that voting for a third party is a waste of a vote.  In fact, I have probably only met 5 people  in the last 12 years that thought voting for a 3rd party was a great idea.

99% of people think that voting for a 3rd party is a terrible idea.  People have warned me that voting for a 3rd party makes the democrats or republicans win.  They say that it steals votes from one or the other and causes a democrat or republican to win.

I am going to dispel any myths about this short sighted point of view once and for all.  Voting for 3rd parties is not a waste of a vote.  It’s a great idea!

When people tell you not to vote for parties, they are revealing their schemas about politics.

People once had a schema about the whig party.  The whig party was once a viable party.  Today, it’s nowhere to be seen. At one time, people would have said:  “The whig party will be around forever!”  They were wrong.

Today, people say that: “3rd parties can’t win.”  They are wrong!  History will prove them wrong.  Schemas hold back progress.  Instead, we should be embracing the new reality of 3rd parties.

It’a better to vote for someone that you want and have them not get elected as opposed to voting for someone that you don’t want and getting him / her.

Many of the same people that say that 3rd parties will never win, still vote for people that they don’t like.  Sometimes they like the 3rd party candidates but will still for 2 of the 2 major parties.

Here are THREE FACTS ABOUT 3RD PARTIES

1.  One day they will win!

2.  One day, they won’t be looked at as alternatives.

3.  IF we don’t vote for them then they will never win.

4.  Even if they don’t win, your votes still matter.   Change happens in increments and then it happens exponentially.

If you don’t care about politics and just want to subscribe to my youtube channel…… good choice!!  Here’s my youtube!

If you think youtube is stupid…. no problem!  Consider subscribing to my podcast.  Watch out… it’s explicit and I have zero subscribers.

If you think iTunes and youtube are wack…. Consider browsing some of the cute stuff I made recently.  Check it out if you like home made crafty things :  )

Oh and don’t forget….. Voting for an alternative party is not a waste of your vote.  Let’s embrace and help shape a new reality  :  )

    I have voted for 3rd parties before. The people that I voted for, didn’t win. I would still do it again for the right candidate.

    Look at Jesse Ventura. It can happen!

    I don’t understand what people don’t understand. Why are many people resistant to this? Please someone leave a comment in favor of the 2 party system.

    I really want to understand where you are coming from. It’s 2014 but they have a mindset that is much older.

    The 2 party system may have served us at one thyme but that time has passed.

    I’ll consider voting for a 3rd party but you can’t make me. I don’t have to. The only thing that I have to do is ride a Hippo.

    I ride a hippo to the park daily. Many love my beast yet some are afraid.

    Voting for a 3rd party is a good idea. For, now, I’ll stick with the Hyena party. I like partying with a bunch of hyenas.

    Seriously though… I’m pretty sure that Jesse Ventura is going to be the next president!

    I have voted for third parties for years. None of them won yet but it’s only a matter of time. It is definitely not throwing your vote away.

    Every year, 3rd party political parties gain more votes. It’s only a matter of time until we see Jesse Ventura as president.

    We are going to have our first 3rd party in office since the whigs. I guarantee this and it’s not because I am psychic. It’s so super obvious.

    I think you should write more posts about 3rd parties.

    Ok, I’ll vote for a republican I mean 3rd party!

    What if the 3rd party is worse than the first 2? I’m not saying that we shouldn’t vote for a 3rd party. I’m just saying that we should be equally careful when voting for anybody.

    I already vote for 3rd political parties. I would still vote Republican & Democrat if it felt right. If the candidate is a good candidate then I’ll vote for her.

    It doesn’t matter for me either way. 3rd parties rarely get good coverage though. Unless they enter the debates, I don’t see how they’d win.

    As of now, there are news stories about “alternative candidates” but mostly you have to do your own research. It can be time consuming.

    It’s important and worth spending the time but I’m just saying, it is time consuming for sure.

    Sounds good, but I only have one concern. Should we allow tons of parties to enter debates? You know what I mean?

    There are at least 9 really good 3rd parties with their shoot together. Do you recommend that people watch debates with that many candidates?

    It’s so obvious that 3rd, 4th & 5th parties are in our future. The 2 party system is like a damn that is beginning to crack.
